Tata bought back the Safari moniker to the market after a long pause. Based on the Tata Harrier, the all-new Safari is a seven-seater and there is a lot of demand for the car in the market. Here is the owner of Tata Safari who has transformed the base model of the Tata Safari to be loaded with a slew of features that makes it better loaded compared to the top-end trim.
The video shows the changes and lists out the details as well. The owner has installed a projector foglamp in the car as the base variant only gets halogen reflective lamps. Even the headlamp bulbs have been upgraded to new all-LED. All the chrome body parts are now piano black. The de-chrome of the vehicle sure makes it look much more aggressive.

The alloy wheels are new. The size of the alloy wheels is 16-inches and it also gets all-terrain tyres. The vehicle gets a dual-tone Nardo grey and black finish. Tata does not offer dual-tone options from the factory but this colour theme sure looks great.
The base colour of this Tata Safari was white but all of the panels are now wrapped in the new colour.
There are a few changes inside the car as well. It gets a new 9.0-inch infotainment system with a 360-degree camera view. Even the top-end of the Tata Safari does not offer a 360-degree camera. The seat upholstery is new in brown colour. The stock white coloured seats of the Safari tend to get dirty in the Indian conditions.
No mechanical changes
Tata Safari is powered by the 2.0-litre KRYOTEC diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 170 PS and peak torque of 350 Nm. There is a choice between a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. There is no petrol variant available with the all-new Tata Safari, however, Tata may launch the petrol variants at a later date if the demand arises.
The vehicle also gets a long list of safety features. It gets a 14-function ESP that gets various traction modes, terrain modes and more. All the four wheels of the Safari get disc brakes too. The vehicle gets six airbags with the top-end variant too. Tata is yet to get the Harrier or the Safari to the NCAP test so we are not sure about the ratings of the vehicle yet.
Currently, Tata is working on the petrol version of the Harrier and the Safari and we may get to see the new models on the Indian roads by the end of this year or sometime next year. Tata is yet to officially comment on the development.
