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.

    hands off the steering wheel.

    The XT Variant gets a 2DIN audio system with 4 Harman speakers which sound impressive. The head unit offers reverse sensor monitor with NaviMaps & Juke car app compatibility as well. The steering mounted audio controls are now a part of standard equipment on this Variant with a price increase of just Rs.1000. The Tiago XT now is priced at Rs.5.34L ex showroom.

    Apart from the additional feature, the new range of Tata Tiagos manufactured since the month of August will receive a updated front door pad design. The armrest and grab handles receive a new and more premium design with changes made to the locking mechanism as well.

    Gone are the Maruti 800 style pop up door locks and that have made way to a conventional and more aesthetically pleasing design. The door lock lever is now integrated with the door handle, which itself is now sleeker and robust. The top spec XZ+ Variant is expected to receive a metal finish on the door handle with piano Black finish on the armrest.

    There is no price increase for this design change and the rest of the car and features remain the same.
