We got our first look at the new Tata Safari at the 2020 Auto Expo, and it created a lot of buzz when visitors saw it at the premier automotive event. The Safari has finally been launched and is now the flagship offering from the Tata Motors portfolio with the biggest, most tech-laden, and luxurious offering from the Indian marque.

The Safari is an all-new SUV. Well, the name is not new but the car’s underpinnings are borrowed from a familiar source. The car has been born out of combining Tata Motors Impact 2.0 design language with the OMEGARC platform, which is an architecture derived from the renowned D8 platform from Land Rover. In terms of dimensions, the Safari is around 63 mm longer and 80 mm taller than the Tata Harrier.

The Safari will feature Tata’s IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy. As we saw at the Expo, the Safari has a butch, aggressive aesthetic that is augmented by the LED lighting cues, massive headlamps, sharp chrome grille, and sleek DRLs. The Safari is sold with the option of a six-seater or a seven-seater as opposed to the Harrier that seats five, and its design has been crafted with the full-sized SUV stance in mind. Tata claim that the Safari’s build quality speaks volumes about its premium placing in their portfolio. In the cabin, the Safari is done up with an Oyster White theme paired with an Ash Wood dashboard to make it stand apart from the Harrier. The Tata Safari will be offered in 6 variants- XE, XM, XT, XT+, XZ, XZ+

The Tata Safari is powered by the brand’s BS6 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine– the same one you see in the Harrier putting out 170 hp and 350 Nm of peak torque. The transmission options are also carried forward from the Tata Harrier – either a six-speed MT or a six-speed AMT. Drivers can choose from three drive modes – Eco, City and Sport and there are also ESP based drive modes that include Normal, Tough, and Wet.

The Safari is going to be a premium SUV offering and will come with a price tag to match. We expect a sticker of Rs 18-20 lakh for the new Safari. Based on its size and its price-point the Safari has a few rivals – the upcoming revamped XUV500, extended-wheelbase Hyundai Creta, Toyota Innova Crysta, and seven-seater MG Hector Plus will all be going head-to-head in the same segment as the Safari. Bookings for the car open on 4 february
