Overall, Tata's ideal line up in my opinion would be Nexon, Harrier 5 seater, Hexa, Harrier 7 Seater.
I think that Tata Motors will discontinue to Safari Storme upon launching the Harrier, or phase it out after launching the Harrier as it still has a sentimental value and legacy but may not be compatible with the BNVSAP Norms kicking in soon. And, the H7X will be launched as next gen Safari Storme, as the original Safari and Storme were both 7 seaters, to carry forward the Safari Legacy and bank on it's sentimental value to customers. The line up will then be like:
Tata Hornbill
Tata Nexon
Tata Harrier
Tata Hexa
Tata H7X (Safari)

That may not work as Safari is a proper 'body on ladder' SUV with full 4X4 capabilities.

This looks like a logical and practical lineup. Looking at the list, its really a good set of UVs & SUVs

Even the Range Rover is a monocoque and has proper 4x4 with a hi and a low range. So no reason for the H7X not to be a Safari.

Although, Safari does makes sense, I feel it has only sentimental value to hardcore SUV lovers. The majority of the car buyers will look for something new from the Tata stable. Everyone see the H7X as a new product in the right direction, even pitting it as a Fortuner rival. The Safari brand name will only make the H7X appear like it is from a few segments below (where the Scorpio lies in). I am hoping Tata gives two separate names for the 5 seater and the 7 seater to give them both distinct identities in their respective segments.

Makes a lot of sense but I don't see Tata naming the H7X as the Safari. If they had to, it would have already come out during the expo. Currently one of the concerns with the Safari is no clarity with regards to its future especially with the introduction of the Harrier and H7X. Tata would have addressed that concern if they intended to name the H7X as the Safari. There is too much sentimental value to do so. Tata holds the Safari along the same lines as its Sierra. They will touch that moniker only when they are absolutely convinced of withholding its legacy. The harrier and H7X is relying on the landcover legacy. The strategy is clearly to present that as the selling point and not distract with their own baggage.

While what you are saying is true I feel instead of borrowing a Toyota moniker and over-hyping the Land Rover legacy if they had simply named it a resurrected Sierra built on Land Rover technology it would have much more appeal. I for one think the Sierra and Safari ads of the 90's really were a class of their own.

On the H7X the Safari is apt now more so since the Storme is the Indian Army's chosen ride. Even Enfield has capitalized on the Indian Army's Bullet legacy.

Default Scoop! Tata Harrier to lead Mumbai Marathon on January 20, 2019

Thanks to the Team-BHP fan (he prefers to remain anonymous) who sent this image in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this page!

The new Tata Harrier will be the lead car at the upcoming Mumbai Marathon, which will be held on January 20, 2019.

Tata H5X Concept @ Auto Expo 2018. EDIT: Named Tata Harrier!-screenshot_20180911153830__01.jpg

The Tata Harrier is expected to be launched in the first half of next year. It is based on Tata's new OMEGA platform. The SUV features the Impact Design 2.0 design language with a V-shaped grille and slim LED DRLs and headlamps positioned on the front bumper. The rear features an integrated spoiler and slim wraparound tail lights. Spy images indicate that the Harrier could get dual-tone interiors with a floating touchscreen infotainment system, 3-spoke multi-function steering wheel and an instrument cluster with an analogue speedometer and a digital colour screen.

The Harrier is expected to be powered by a 140 BHP 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Moneycontrol.com has this news today related to Tata Harrier:
https://www.moneycontrol.com/news/te...l-2950261.html

Snippet from the article:
The showrooms will feature new layouts and colour schemes. To attract the younger generation, the showroom will be more tech savvy allowing for more digital interactivity.

Tata could do something radical in terms of their showrooms look and feel. Just like RE did with their showrooms. Tata could very well give a rustic look to their showrooms. Or that theme is good enough only for the bikes?
Let's wait till January and find out what Tata pull out off their magic hat this time

Tata Motors have posted a video on the Harrier's platform. They, very well, boast that JLR has sold over a million SUVs based on this platform.

Looks like the hump along the centre will be quite prominent, and the floor will not be flat. But With the lower height I guess this cant be avoided

According to the company's president (PV unit), Mayank Pareek, who has driven it, he can't praise it enough.

The Harrier is easily the most anticipated product from Tata Motors.

Just now saw this video, the music is fantastic
Any idea about the tentative pricing of this vehicle? Will it be in Compass range?

Edit: Just saw on the net that expected price is 12 to 18 lacs. That sounds too optimistic!

Does that mean they are targeting the premium SUVs? So it is Compass, Tuscon and Tiguan segment? I hope it would be between 17-20L OTR .
