Tata Harrier New vs Old - Key Changes

Tata Motors flagship SUV, the new Tata Harrier has graced the market since its debut in January 2019. However, this marks the first significant transformation for the vehicle since its initial release. The refreshed model boasts an updated exterior design, a thoroughly revamped interior, a selection of eye-catching colour choice and the incorporation of ADAS for added safety.

Let's delve into the notable changes that distinguish the 2023 Tata Harrier facelift from its predecessor, offering a closer look at the evolution of this popular SUV.

Revamped Exterior

The all-new Tata Harrier was already an imposing SUV, but with the latest update, the company has elevated its aggressive stance. The most noticeable change is the closed-off grille, now featuring connected LED DRLs with a welcome and goodbye function. The signature split headlamp setup continues, but now with upgraded LEDs and a strikingly shaped triangular housing. While the side profile remains largely unchanged, the new model boasts fresh wheel designs, larger 19-inch rims, and a prominent 'Harrier' badge on the front door. Moving to the rear, the facelifted Harrier showcases a redesigned set of connected LED tail lamps with a more distinct design element, elevating its overall aesthetics. A subtly tweaked rear bumper design completes the comprehensive design enhancements made to the Harrier.

Enhanced Interior

While the overall dashboard layout and design in the 2023 Harrier facelift remain consistent with its predecessor, it's the finer details that set it apart. The lines are now sharper, contributing to a sleeker and more upscale aesthetic. The vehicle now features a floating touchscreen infotainment system, which has received a substantial upgrade, growing from a 10.25-inch screen to a more expansive 12.3-inch unit. Additionally, notable adjustments have been implemented in the lower central console. Impressively, the introduction of a Land Rover-inspired gear lever in the Automatic variants, along with a display illustrating the chosen terrain mode, brings an intriguing blend of sophistication and functionality to the 2023 Harrier's interior.

Advance Safety

Up until now, Tata Motors had remained silent amidst questions regarding the GNCAP rating of the Harrier. However, with the latest iteration of this SUV, it has made a remarkable leap by securing a coveted 5-star safety rating in the Global NCAP Crash test. The vehicle now comes equipped with an impressive total of seven airbags, with six of them being standard, and a more comprehensive suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). This upgraded ADAS now encompasses features such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning. Further enhancing safety are additions like a 360-degree Camera, electronic stability program (ESP), hill-hold, traction control, roll-over mitigation, ABS with EBD, rear parking camera with sensors, and a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).


The Tata Harrier now incorporates dual-zone climate control, a powered tailgate, powered front seats (with 6-way adjustment for the driver and 4-way for the co-driver), multi-colour ambient lighting, a spacious 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a 10.25-inch digital driver's display. Notable additions include front parking sensors, a gesture-controlled powered tailgate, and a rapid 45W C-type fast charger. Furthermore, the Harrier retains its existing features such as ventilated front seats, push-button start/stop, a panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, steering-mounted controls, a shark-fin antenna, OTA updates, a rear wiper and washer, the iRA-connected car technology for seamless connectivity, and an impressive 10-speaker music system.

New Variant Names & Colours

The 2023 Harrier ushers in a new era with a fresh nomenclature approach, departing from the traditional XM, XT, and XZ designations. It now presents Smart, Pure, Adventure, and the top-of-the-line Fearless edition. Alongside this, the colour range has also been expanded, introducing four captivating new shades, offering a total of seven options, including the vibrant Sunlit Yellow, Pebble Grey, Seaweed Green, Ash Grey, Oberon Black, Lunar White, and Coral Red. This revitalized palette, with Sunlit Yellow, Pebble Grey, and Seaweed Green as newcomers, adds a dynamic twist to the Harrier's style.
