Tata Safari 2021

Tata Motors has launched its flagship Safari 7-seat SUV on the 22nd February 2021. The new Safari ranges from Rs.14.69l to Rs.21.25l (ex showroom).

The new Safari will be available in 6 variants in total.

The Variants include:

XE, XM, XT, XT+, XZ, XZ+

The new gen Safari is essentially the 7 seat extended version of the Harrier 5 seat SUV based on the Land Rover derived OMEGA arc platform. Earlier this SUV was named the Buzzard at the Geneva auto expo, which was then changed to Gravitas for the Delhi auto expo last year. Now, Tata motors has finalized that it will be the successor to legendary and iconic Safari SUV.

Based on the Harrier, the Safari is around 60mm longer than the Harrier to accommodate the extra 2 seats while also being taller to provide better headroom for the 3rd row. Except for the larger dimensions and extra seats, the Safari is largely similar to the 5-seat Harrier. However, the front grille gets a slightly different treatment, featuring the signature Tri-arrow pattern finished in Chrome.

The tailgate is more upright, giving the Safari a more boxy appearance and the SUV also features long functional roof rails for lifestyle utility. The top spec variants receive 18” dual tone alloy wheels with the design similar to the Harrier's whereas the lower spec variants carry forward the exact same 16” Steel wheels seen on the Harrier’s lower variants. The higher variants are also offered with a Panoramic sunroof.

    Maruti has been subjected to a lot of speculation to launch the globally popular Jimny compact off road SUV to India. Maruti had showcased it at the Delhi Auto Expo earlier this year. But there has been no confirmed news until now.

    A youtuber (@KarDIY) has recently spotted a white-coloured Maruti Jimny Sierra prototype on the streets of Gurugram. It is the exact same 3 door model sold globally. This top spec Sierra variant also gets alloy wheels.

    The global sold Suzuki Jimny is 3550 mm in length, 1645 mm in width and has a height of 1730 mm. It also has

    a wheelbase of 2250 mm.

    We expect the India spec version to come with the same 105PS, 1.5-litre petrol engine as seen on the Brezza, S-Cross and Ciaz. The Jimny will also come as standard a part-time 4WD system.

    In terms of features, the Jimny is expected to get the following:

    • Flat bottom steering wheel

    • Projector headlamps

    • Fog lamps

    • 15” alloy wheels

    • Auto climate control

    • 7” touchscreen

    • Android auto & Apple carplay

    • Steering mounted audio controls

    • Power windows & mirrors

    • Rear defogger and wiper

    • 2 airbags

    • ABS with EBD

    • Brake assist

    • Smart key with Push button start

    There is also speculation that the compact SUV will be introduced in a new India-specific 5-door avatar by 2021.

    It remains to be seen whether the India spec version will retain the Jimny name or be renamed the Gypsy. Regarding pricing, Maruti Suzuki is expected to price the Jimny in the Rs.9L to Rs.15L range and will go up against the only other Off roader, the Mahindra Thar's petrol versions.

    Stay tuned for further updates on the Suzuki Jimny.
