It would be good if Tata could activate that LED strip to light up brighter to act as the brake lights!

It looks smashing. But isn't this illegal? The RC book would say whatever the car's color is underneath the wrap. But now it looks black! What is the law regarding full wraps for cars?

Yes, it is illegal, unless an approval is taken from the Registration Authority and new colour is updated in RTO records and RC.

To answer this, I will refer to the judgement by Supreme Court for Sun-film ban - Writ Petition (Civil) No . 265 of 2011 [point no. 10]:

Quote:
the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 (for short Ďthe Actí) was enacted, inter alia, with the object and reason being, to provide for quality standards for pollution control devices, provisions for issuing fitness certificate of the vehicle and effective ways of tracking down traffic offenders.

Section 190 of the Act provides that any person who drives or causes or allows to be driven in any public place a motor vehicle or a trailer which has any defect, or violates the standards prescribed in relation to road safety, or violates the provisions of the Act or the Rules made therein, is punishable as per the provisions of the Act. In other words, alteration to the conditions of the vehicle in a manner contravening the Act is not permissible in law.

Section 52 of the Act declares that no owner of a motor vehicle shall so alter the vehicle that the particulars contained in the certificate of registration are at variance with those originally specified by the manufacturer. However, certain changes are permissible in terms of the proviso to this Section and that too with the approval of the Central Government/competent authority.

In terms of Section 53 of the Act, if any registering authority or other prescribed authority has reason to believe that any motor vehicle within its jurisdiction is in such a condition that its use in a public place would constitute a danger to the public, or that it fails to comply with the requirements of the Act or the Rules made thereunder, whether due to alteration of vehicle violative of Section 52 of the Act or otherwise, the Authority may, after giving opportunity of hearing, suspend the registration certificate for the period required for rectification of such defect, and if the defect is still not removed, for cancellation of registration.

It is illegal to alter the color without endorsing the same in the RC irrespective of the method (Paint/Wrap) adopted to change the color.

Damn! That looks hot. One of the best looking Harriers I have seen. I really wish Harrier was available in Black from the factory itself.

Hi All, Do we have our official Team-BHP review for Tata Harrier?
I searched our forum couple of times and couldn't find it.

Thanks

TataHARRIER Offroading on its Bhutan Drive organised by Tata Motors SOUL group(SUV Owners United League)

& It Says.. "Its the First Harrier to enter Bhutan from Indian soil.
I wanted to drive Harrier as I wanted to test its capabilities and the best way was to take it to the mountains and off-road in the rivers, which i did and was satisfied with its performance.
Tata Motors has really done a commendable job in making this vehicle not only by design but also mechanically, where it goes off-road with an ease, even being a 4x2, which was very impressive"

If you call that off-roading, sorry to say this, but even my Fabia would do that.

. Indeed, some of the streams I passed through in my Ford Figo, during my Ladakh trip, were deeper than that. I think Harrier is a capable vehicle, just that the reviewer chose a poor section to highlight it.

Is a Harrier JTP in the works? Saw a Harrier being tested near Coimbatore.

It should be the 6-speed auto variant (borrowed from Hyundai) of Harrier under testing
