2019 Geneva Motor Show confirmed that Tata Buzzard Sport is the European nameplate for the popular Harrier SUV being sold in India. The name even confirms that the Indian brand is following a familiar Discovery and Discovery Sport nomenclature from the Land Rover as the former is a full sized SUV and latter comes with seating for five passengers. Tata also unveiled the full sized Buzzard SUV that measures 62mm longer than the Sport version and features additional two seats. The most powerful engine tune is seen under the Buzzard as it is good for 170 HP of maximum power from the same 2.0L, the 4-cylinder diesel engine of the Buzzard Sport. The claimed entry of both these names also creates a state of confusion for the Indian market as Harrier nameplate being used for the smaller car could mean a different name for the Buzzard in the country. Also, Tata is already using different names for two products based on the same platform as seen with Tiago and Tigor. Buzzard Sport comes with exactly same interior as the Harrier while alloy wheel the size has been raised to 18-inches on the Euro-spec car. The popular shade that is seen on all Indian Tata Motors advertisement was kept intact on the European Buzzard Sport. The car measures 4598mm in length, 1894mm in width and 1706mm in height. The wheelbase measures 2741mm for both the models. However, the change in length is visible after the rear wheel only. Tata Motors is expected to keep the automatic option as standard on both the cars in Europe while the Indian market will get the new gearbox only in the 7-seat guise. The option of the sunroof is not available on any of them presently while 4x4 is yet to be announced for the newly developed products based on the OMEGA platform.
