In comparison, the current 2.0L diesel engine produces 170PS of power and 350Nm of torque, and comes with either a 6-speed manual or a torque converter (TC) automatic transmission. The Tata Harrier and Safari’s closest homegrown rival – the Mahindra XUV700 – gets a larger 2.0L turbo petrol engine that churns out 200PS of power and 380Nm of torque. However, the XUV700 is 290kg heavier than the diesel Harrier and Safari. The petrol versions of the Tata SUV are likely to be ven lighter and thus, boast better power-to-weight ratios than the XUV700.
