Tata is one of the manufacturers that are still doing special editions of their cars. They have Dark Editions of their vehicles that are a hit in the Indian market. Tata has still not launched Safari’s Dark Edition and people have been waiting for it eagerly. Now, according to Team-BHP, Tata Motors is working on the Dark Edition of the Safari and it will be launched in the first quarter of 2022.
Just like other Dark Editions, the Safari will also come only with cosmetic changes. The exterior will get an all-black treatment with #Dark emblem on the side fenders. The alloy wheels will also be finished in a darker shade. We expect them to be the same ones that Tata offers on Harrier’s Dark Edition and they will measure 18-inches in size.
The interior will also get a dark theme and we expect the changes to be the same as the Harrier’s Dark Edition. So, the upholstery will be finished in Benecke Kaliko leatherette. There will be tri-arrow perforations and #Dark embroidery on the headrests of the seats. All the chrome elements on the exterior and the interior will be replaced with dark chrome.

Mechanically, it will stay the same, so there will only be a 2.0-litre Kyrotech diesel engine on offer. This engine produces 170 PS of max power and 350 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The engine is also doing duty on the MG Hector, Hector Plus and Jeep Compass.
Safari Special Editions
Tata already has two special editions of the Safari. There is the Gold Edition and Adventure Persona Edition. The Gold Editions were launched recently whereas the Adventure Persona Edition was launched with the regular Safari.
Adventure Persona Edition
The Adventure Persona Edition is offered in an exclusive colour scheme. It is called Tropical Mist and looks like a faded teal green paint shade. Tata Motors says that the colour is inspired by the rich and diverse flora present across the vibrant landscapes of our country.
The chrome trims in the exterior have been replaced with black. The upholstery is now finished in Earthy Brown colour instead of Ivory White colour. There is also piano black trim throughout the interior. The alloy wheels are finished in Charcoal Grey. The design and size stay the same as the regular Safari.
There are two Gold Editions of the Safari. There is Black Gold and White Gold. There are gold accents throughout the exterior as well as interior. There is also a black or white insert in the dashboard depending on the paint scheme you opt for.
Tata Motors also added some features to the Gold Editions. It comes with a wireless phone charger, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ventilated seats for the front and rear row, an air purifier and leather-wrapped upholstery.
