Tata Harrier will get a single powertrain in the form of 2.0-litre Fiat-sourced diesel engine with 138 BHP of power.This unit will be paired to a 6-speed manual and automatic transmission with the option of both Front-wheel drive and All-Wheel drive.
Tata Harrier will rival the likes of Jeep Compass and Hyundai Creta.While Harrier competes directly with Compass 2.0-litre fiat sourced diesel engine, it will also rival with the Creta’s powerful 1.6-litre diesel engine.

The difference between the power output of Creta and Harrier is not that much with Creta making 126 BHP of power when compared to sightly more powerful 138 BHP power unit of Harrier.Both Creta and Harrier gets both 6-speed manual and automatic transmission for its diesel engine.
