Tata Harrier, which got the dual tone offering, sunroof, Dark Edition last month and the PentaCare extended warranty package earlier this month as among its range of updates, has now been introduced with new software updates.
The new updates, which has already been installed by Harrier owner Utsav Sharma, has significantly brought down engine noise levels to such a low that one can hardly hear it. These updates are installed for free by Tata Motors authorized dealer.
The owner also states that even when revving the engine harder, the engine produces a smoother note. These software updates include ECU, BCM and CCM updates along with infotainment software updation. Below is the receipt the owner has shared after getting his Harrier updated to the new release on 11th September.
Speaking about the update, Utsav says, "Got my Harrier updated with the 2nd set of updates on 11th Sept and trust me engine noise has reduced to such a low that you hardly notice it now. Also if you rev harder the engine now produces a smoother note which is no more irritating. I saw few post where some owners said that nothing changed post these updates which is not at all correct. These new updates surely gonna increase the driving pleasure to a new level."
Since the launch of Harrier, Tata Motors has been regularly giving updates to their SUV. This is not the first time Harrier has received ECU and Infotainment update. Few weeks ago too, multiple updates for the Harrier had been rolled out. At that time, a total of 8 updates were delivered. This time around, 4 updates have been given.
Since the launch of MG Hector and Kia Seltos, sales of Tata Harrier have declined heavily. From selling almost 2500 units in March this year, Harrier sales are down to below 650 units in Aug 2019. These new updates, as well as launch of new editions / features are expected to bring in more sales for the company.
Along with these updates on the Tata Harrier already introduced, it will be interesting to note that the company is also planning to bring in more updates in the days ahead. These could include a more powerful 170 hp BS VI compliant engine, an automatic gearbox option along with a 3 row 7 seater variant, which was unveiled as Tata Buzzard in Geneva earlier this year.
