To come up with this price cut, the brand has excluded many premium features on the newcomer. The bash plate is now black in colour while the fog lamps and chrome surrounds for the grille are found missing, and no LED headlamps either on this entry variant.
W3 gets a set of 17-inch steel wheels without any hubcaps and the black accents on the pillars have also been removed. It also misses the wiper and washer at the back.
Looking inside, the new W3 variant gets all black interiors. It does not get soft-touch materials instead get black Jacquard fabric upholstery. The W3 doesn’t receive any audio system as well while there are provisions to add an audio system and speakers upon purchase. The rest of the cabin follows the same layout as all the other variants.
The features list on W3 includes front and rear power windows, air conditioning, electric ORMs, central locking etc..
There are no changes made to the engine. W3 continues to draw power from a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine that churns out a power of 155bhp and torque of 360Nm, while being mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The base variant of Tata Harrier was the best seller in this segment with a comparatively lower price. Looks like Mahindra has taken it very seriously and made a decision to compete better with its rival.
