looks amazing! especially those alloys! looking forward to teambhp's detailed review!

Congratulations mate! Looking forward to your TD review. I'm sure you're going to enjoy your new car. Those rims look awesome! I'm hoping TATA will offer them as an accessory to existing Harrier owners. What color have you chosen?

No petrol option available at the moment. It is the diesel automatic version which I have booked. The one in red.

New ORVMs, Sunroof, Better looking alloys, Automatic & USB port location - this list just shows Tata Motors is taking feedback seriously. Another point for updating it now instead of holding off till midlife facelift. Low sales and serious competition would ensure they don't price it too high.

Congrats! You have added information and important one at that! And this is far more useful for potential buyers than people's opinions .

So with Tata confirming that the Harrier BS6 will indeed come with 17 inch wheels, the last of what I had predicted has turned out to be true.

Even though Tata had showcased the Harrier with 18 inch wheels at the Geneva Show back in March 2019, I had been repeatedly saying that the production version will still get the 17 inchers.

I sincerely hope to keep bringing such exclusive scoops to you fellow bhpians from time to time.

And heartiest congratulations to ihrishi for being probably the first bhpian to have booked the Harrier even before going for a TD or knowing the prices. Just goes on to show how Tata had messed up the original Harrier as far as features were concerned.

Isn't the autobox from the Tucson? I have driven the Tucson and i found the Autobox pretty decent. Nothing extraordinary, but it's nice. Atleast better than the 9 speed in the compass. Honestly, the 9 speed doesn't do justice to the awesome handling and engine combo that the Compass offers.

That scuff plate saying Land Rover pedigree... Cringe! Really hope it's an optional add on.

If we continue to be apprehensive about our home grown manufacturers, soon there will be a day when all our mobility needs will be in the hands of foreign brands. Yes, we do get to walk around with pompousness and pat ourselves on the back for having spent our 25L well but then we should not complain about the consequences in the form inflation etc. as the money just goes outside. Are we ready for it?

  1. I am all in for the homegrown manufacturers but then they have to match the quality levels of the competition. When I am spending my money what I want is the best I can get. I don't care whether it's Hyundai, Tata or VW.
  2. Just because it's an Indian manufacturer why should I buy a product that doesn't provide me the same value for money and peace of mind.
  3. There is a certain reason why I will not spend 25 lacs on this product. If I am spending 25 lacs then there are better options available and more important is the niggle free experience that tata motors lack.
  4. Price is a very important factor. At a certain price, you are comparing the product to Seltos, Creta etc. but when it is increased by 3-4 lacs then it hits the next segment of cars.
  5. It is not just the product but the overall experience that is required for a 25 lac rupee product to sell. I was just reading about a fellow bhpian's experience when he got a repaired harrier delivered. Compare to that of Hyundai which offers a near fuss-free experience.
  6. Another one was a hexa owners plight where the car was at the service center for more days than with the person who owned it.
  7. There is no GNCAP rating
  8. Products like Tucson, Jeep Compass are there in the 25 lac category where the fit and finish is much better.

Scuff plate is part of the accessories list, fortunately.

Is there some setting in your team-bhp account where you could read only about this one Hexa and not the 100 others that haven't had even a niggle? My 47k kms run XTA had only a change of tyre and a few punctures. You can find my posts on the hexa thread.

Please don't look at things from an already set mindset. Research the both sides and come to a conclusion. If this is not for you so be it. Buy something else. There are more niggles for the Innova compared to the Hexa. Does it make it any less? Its a great car.

This new Harrier is the most stunning car I have seen in the last 4-5 years. I am sure all the issues are sorted out and the greatest thing is that Tata is listening.

I am already ready to predict this as our Team-BHP Car of the Year 2020.

  4. when it is increased by 3-4 lacs then it hits the next segment of cars.
  5. It is - - fuss-free experience.
  6. Another - - it.
  7. There is no GNCAP rating
  8. Products - - better.
1. You should go for what suits you the most, when you are spending your hard earned money, no one is disputing that.
2. If TASS has a bad reputation in your area and you feel you wouldn't have peace of mind, then there's nothing wrong with you avoiding it. There are two dealers in my district and one of them has a good reputation, so i don't have much of an issue.
3. Again, that is subjective, isn't it? As i said before if TASS is not looking great in your area, then you have complete freedom to ignore them. The Compass also had a freezing touchscreen issue like the initial batch of Harriers but i don't see it being brought up as much.
4. Implying there is something wrong with that? The diesel harrier provides way more features than the creta and compared to the seltos, it has a bigger engine and also has a lot more space. Obviously i haven't TD the new Harrier, but on paper stats alone, provided on road for the automatic top end is below 25 lacs, i cant see a better car as far as i am concerned.
5. Having multiple Hyundais in my extended family, i am not too sure about the famed after sales reputation they enjoy, of course as i said about TASS above, hyundai service might be a lot better in your area
6. If you're referring to TROOPER's Hexa, then yes. Tata deserves complete blame for that. They are a lot more improved from maybe a decade ago, but it's uneven. Also, you are forming your opinion about their after sales based on one Hexa's issue and ignoring a 100 hexas that faced no problem, like a fellow member mentioned a couple of posts above. I could quote 10 or even more instances of hyundai after sales engaging in shady practices, would you change your view about hyundai based on that?
7. Completely justified, i hope it gets 5 stars and completes the safety family of Tata.
8. I could quote some areas where the cars you mentioned fall short. Also, how do you know the fit and finish of a car that hasn't even hit dealerships yet is inferior?
Besides, you mentioned having a fuss free experience, and i dont think jeep after sales is the first word that comes to the mind, is it?
