The interior of the forthcoming Safari is poised to embrace a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a panoramic sunroof, and ventilated seats, ensuring a luxurious driving experience. Safety, a paramount concern for Tata, will be addressed through six airbags, ESC, hill hold assist, and advanced driver assistance systems. It is believed that the upcoming Safari will also get a more advanced version of Tata’s ADAS.
For the Nexon Facelift, interior upgrades are anticipated to include the introduction of a 10.25-inch touchscreen system, wireless phone charging, and ventilated front seats to enhance comfort. It has also been reported that the new Nexon will feature an Avinya (Tata’s concept vehicle earlier showcased at the Auto Expo) styled steering wheel with a backlit display makes an appearance, elevating the Nexon’s interior aesthetic. In terms of the package of safety features the new Nexon facelift will also include six airbags, ISOFIX child seat mounts, and more.
With the Indian festive season on the horizon, Tata Motors is preparing to launch the Safari Facelift and Nexon Facelift, promising enhanced quality and features. The Safari Facelift will retain its existing 2.0-liter diesel engine while introducing a new 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine. This petrol powerplant generates an impressive 170PS of power and 280Nm of torque, offering spirited performance on the road.
The Nexon Facelift, on the other hand, will likely incorporate a revised 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, delivering a substantial power output of 125PS and a peak torque of 225Nm. This updated engine will continue to be paired with the current 6-speed manual transmission, but the conventional 6-speed AMT is expected to make way for a new 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This enhancement is poised to elevate the Nexon’s driving dynamics to new heights, catering to the demands of modern urban living.
