Tata recently announced that the launch of their all-new 7-seater SUV Safari in the market. They are bringing back the name of their iconic SUV in this upcoming model. Tata Motors will be launching the Safari SUV on 26 January 2021. The SUV is actually based on H7X which is basically an extended version of Harrier SUV. Tata recently released studio images and a short video of the upcoming SUV on the internet. Ever since then we have seen several render videos and images of Safari being re-imagined in different avatars. Here we have a new render image where the artist shows how Safari would look like, if Tata decides to CAMO edition (similar to Harrier) in Safari.
The Safari CAMO edition is based on the regular Safari that will be launched in the market later this month. No major modifications are done to the SUV in terms of design. The Camo edition is actually inspired from the Harrier CAMO edition that was launched in the market few months ago. Just like the Harrier CAMO edition, the Safari CAMO also gets a Camo Green paint job which looks extremely good on the SUV. The alloy wheels have also been blacked out but, there are no CAMO badges seen on the fender of the Safari. Another detail that differentiated Safri CAMO from Harrier CAMO edition is the presence of chrome elements.
In Harrier, all the chrome garnishes and inserts on the SUV were either blacked out or removed. In this Safari CAMO edition render, the chrome inserts in the grille, grille outline and door handles have been retained. The skid plate in Safari also gets the silver finish which is usually black in Harrier CAMO edition. Other than this, no major changes are seen in the render image. One thing that should be kept in mind here is that Tata has not said anything about launching a CAMO edition in Safari. There is a possibility that Tata might launch a Dark and CAMO edition of the SUV in future.
Coming back to Safari, as mentioned above, it is basically an extended version of the Harrier SUV. It is slightly longer and taller than regular Harrier and also has a different design at the rear. The Safari is exactly 63 mm longer and 80 mm taller than Harrier. It will be available with three row of seats with 6 and 7 seat options. On the inside, Safari is expected to get features that were already seen in Harrier. It will offer features like touchscreen infotainment screen, leather wrapped seats and steering, electrically adjustable seats, panoramic sunroof, auto-dimming IRVMs, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, JBL speaker system, drive modes and so on.
Tata Safari will be powered by the same 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine as Harrier. The engine generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. It will be available with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox option. Tata Safari will compete with SUVs like MG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV500 in the market. Once launched, Tata Safari will be the flagship SUV from the manufacturer.
