Tata Harrier: Land Rover-based off-roader teased


The upcoming Tata Harrier crossover has been teased ahead of its full debut next year.

In these latest teasers, we can see the production crossover will share many styling cues with the H5X concept, including its smooth body surfacing and window graphics with a blacked-out roof and pillars.

The Harrier will also incorporate a wide grille flanked by a set of thin LED driving lights. Like the setup in the Hyundai Kona and pre-facelift Jeep Cherokee, the main headlight units are disguised and reside further down the front fascia.

The Tata Harrier will use a version of Land Rover’s D8 platform, which was developed under Ford’s stewardship, and is itself a related to the EUCD architecture used by the previous generation Ford Mondeo, Volvo S60 and S80, amongst others.

For its use in the Harrier, it has been re-christened Optimal Modular Efficient Global Architecture, which is mouthful until you realise the backronym is Omega.

The D8/Omega architecture is currently in use in the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Jaguar E-Pace, as well as the current and next-generation versions of the Range Rover Evoque.
