That looks like a place to accommodate airbag.

His version of the H5X actually looks very good!

The Harrier (Tata should have given a unique name to it) will be one of the best looking vehicles on Indian roads is what I feel, specially in the two tone paint job.

Poor product life cycle management by Tata. Where does this leave Hexa owners?

How do you conclude that? Based on rumours or speculations by us bhpians?

Let us wait for things to happen before passing judgements or statements. We do not know how the company will position their products yet. It is all speculation.

Hyundai is planning on assembling its 6 speed gearbox in India, with in house requirement in adequate to sustain the assembly operation, they have to sell to others.
Punch powerglide which supplies transmission for Hexa, GM India and Isuzu MUX may not have an engine suitable for a engine with lesser torque.

A small clarification (with your permission Rahul Rao) is needed here I felt. Automotive diesels all come under the category of high speed diesel engines .
Diesel engine speeds are categorized under three headings -

a) Slow speed engines (from roughly 50 rpm to about 250 rpm) which are today used mainly as marine propulsion engines (as well as some shore-based power generators) and are usually 2-stroke in nature, with outputs ranging from about 1500 kw to 30,000 kw and even higher. They also have bore/stroke ratios upto 1: 4.3125 (bore=800 mm / stroke=3450 mm)
b) Medium speed engines , from roughly 500 rpm to 2000+ rpm and THESE are typically used as power generators on board, locomotive diesels and large earthmoving equipment.
c) High speed engines from app. 2500 rpm upto 5000+ rpm and these are principally used in automotive applications.

A bore/stroke ratio of 0.885 (as quoted) is a mildly under-square design (bore smaller than stroke) as are almost all automotive diesels. And this is the principal reason for their excellent torque characteristics as compared to gasoline engines.
Going into greater detail would be straying wildly OT – enough to say that diesel combustion characteristics (flame speed propagation & ignition characteristics etc. in the combustion chamber) limit diesel engine speeds to 5000rpm+. Whereas gasoline combustion doesn’t suffer from these restrictions & you routinely have gasoline performance engines (F1, e.g.) going upto 10000 rpm and beyond.

Spotted with 18-inch rims shod with Bridgestone Dueler tyres on the Pune-Solapur highway by an IAB reader.

The test mule is likely the base variant that misses out on some features. The Tata Harrier test mule is hoisted on 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels wrapped with Bridgestone Dueler tires. Tata Motors could offer bigger wheels on top variants, considering the Tata Hexa comes with 19-inch wheels.

Another thing to notice is that the test mule was the 5-seat (Tata H5X) model, and Tata engineers have cleverly cloaked the D-pillar to disguise the SUV's dimension. The Tata Harrier test mule had more than ample legroom (probably class leading) in the second row with quilted seats, while the space behind did not look enough to plant seats.

The Harrier test mule featured a 6-speed transmission along with Tata's Super Drive Modes.

You saw it first here folks!
Here are pictures of the production version Tata Harrier. Spotted near the Tata Motors Plant in Bhosari.

Nice that these posts were posted back to back, gives us an opportunity to compare. Judging by the looks (and aided by the comments in the quote), the one posted by RavenAvi appears to be the 7 seater H7X.

Can't wait to see the Harrier in all its glory.

Unconventional placement of headlights, eh?

Nice tail light set up. Looking forward to the full reveal.
Wish list: Array of safety features like 6 airbags, ESP, TC as standard across all trim levels. In the higher trims, adaptive LED headlights and larger navigation/ICE screen and a full digital instrument console. With the might of TCS behind them this cannot be that hard a deal. If only dreams could become real.

The front design now seems to be catching up with the Europeans/Koreans (Hyundai/Kia). The next gen Skoda eKodiaq might feature this type of a DRL on top and headlight set up.

This was done long ago by the Nissan Juke and currently used in Citroen Picasso. As long as the proportions are maintained, this could be a nice design language.

Akin to 18:9 or 19:9 screen ratios replacing the 16:9 Displays for mobile phones in 2018... this (headlamp) placement could be the new trend for 4 wheelers.

Where did the production version post disappear?
Guess some Tata officials keeping close eye on the forums.
