Homegrown auto major Tata Motors launched the much awaited Harrier premium mid-sized SUV in the domestic car market of India in January this year, at a starting price of Rs. 12.69 lakhs. Now, within just 6 months after the Tata Harrier’s launch in this market, its prices have been hiked up.
The Harrier has gained great popularity in this short time and has now become dearer by Rs. 30,000 across all the variants in its lineup. The premium quality SUV’s price range now starts at Rs. 12.99 lakhs, which goes up to Rs. 16.55 lakhs (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).
The Tata Harrier continues to be available in four model trims, namely XE, XM, XT, and XZ. The Harrier is also currently the model with the longest waiting period in its own segment of mid-sized SUVs.
Take a look at the revised variant-wise prices against the old prices of the Tata Harrier below:
Rs. 12.69 Lakh
Rs. 12.99 Lakh
Rs. 13.75 Lakh
Rs. 14.05 Lakh
Rs. 14.95 Lakh
Rs. 15.25 Lakh
Rs. 16.25 Lakh
Rs. 16.55 Lakh
The Harrier does not get any updates. The price hike might seem to be a little out of place as the Indian auto industry is currently having a tough time in the light of plummeting sales. The Harrier’s sales have also taken a dip of 14 percent last month as compared against its April sales. However, it is to be understood that the price range during the Harrier’s launch time was introductory, and car makers usually hike up the prices soon afterward.
It is also to be noted that the Tata Harrier prices will be again increased within another 6 months, as and when it gets updated with the costlier BS6 compliant engines under its hood, which is likely by the end of 2019. So, if you wish to bring home a new Tata Harrier, it will be wise to do your bookings soon to avoid any further price hikes.
