Ad

Tata Motors launched the all-new Safari in the market earlier this year. The manufacturer had announced at the beginning of this year that, they had announced they will be naming their new 7-seater SUV after the iconic SUV Safari that was discontinued years ago. The all-new Safari received an overwhelming response from customers across the country. The all-new Safari has already reached dealerships and deliveries for the same has also started. Many celebrities have already bought this SUV and we have featured the same on our website as well. Here we have video where elderly parents of a vlogger share what they feel about the captain seats on the all-new Safari.

The video has been uploaded by The Safari Traveller on his YouTube channel. The vlogger starts by showing his brand new Tata Safari SUV. The vlogger had not peeled of the plastics from any of the panels as he wanted his mother to do it. The vlogger then talks about the small road trip that they plan to do. His parents were sitting at the rear.

The vlogger has gone for the Adventure Persona Edition which looks different and extremely good in comparison to the normal Safari. The vlogger asks his parents on how they feel about the captain seats in Tata Safari. They were both very impressed with the overall comfort of the seat. His mother can be heard saying that, she can easily move her legs at the back and has enough headroom and legroom. Both of them agreed that, the armrest is a very handy feature.

Normally on cars with bench seats in second row, there is no space for people to rest their arms properly. They also mention that, they can individually recline the seats as per their comfort which is normally not possible in a car with bench seats. The vlogger then talks a bit about the driving seat. Safari gives him a commanding driving position and he really liked the panoramic sunroof. He felt that the AC was not cooling the cabin enough. Other than that, he had no other suggestions regarding the SUV.

The all-new Tata Safari is based on the same platform as Harrier. It is slightly longer and taller than Harrier but, there is no difference in wheelbase. The SUV is available with both 6 and 7 seater option. It comes with features like panoramic sunroof, touchscreen infotainment screen, multi-function steering wheel, leather wrapped seats, electrically adjustable driver seats, semi-digital instrument cluster and so on. Tata Safari is powered by the same engine as Tata Harrier.

It is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of torque. This engine is available with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Tata Safari competes with cars like MG Hector Plus and upcoming Hyundai Alcazar in the segment. Tata is also working on a new micro SUV based on the HBX concept showcased at Auto Expo last year. The production version of the same was spotted testing on the road under heavy camouflage recently. It is expected to be launched in the market soon.
