Yesterday, the Indian carmaker Tata Motors unveiled the new XT+ variants of its flagship SUV Tata Harrier with a panoramic sunroof. It seems Tata Motors is on a mission to make premium features more accessible to customers. Just after introducing an electric sunroof in Tata Nexon, it’s the Harrier that is getting even more premium features.
The XT+ trim of Harrier is launched at an introductory price of Rs 16.99 lakh (ex-showroom). These prices are valid only for those customers who book Harrier in September and take deliveries before 31st December. The cost will increase from 1st October.
This is the second major update since the launch of Harrier’s BS6 version in February this year. Earlier, this feature was available in the top-spec variant XZ+, which costs Rs 18.90 lakh (ex-showroom). Now customers can get the same feature with a straight 1.91 lakh price cut.
