Tata launched the all-new Safari in the market earlier this year. It is actually a 7-seater SUV that is based on Tata’s popular Harrier SUV that got launched in market back in 2019. Tata named this SUV after their iconic SUV Safari and there was a mixed reaction from fans reagarding the name. The SUV however got launched and it looks like, it is doing pretty well in the market. Tata Safari competes with cars like MG Hector Plus, Mahindra XUV500 and Hyundai Alcazar. It is a front wheel drive SUV and here we have a render image that shows how the all-new Safari will look like, if it was a hardcore off-road SUV.
The render image has been shared by tatasafariownersclub on their Instagram page. The artist has completely changed the overall stance of the car and it now looks like an SUV that can handle any type of terrains. The artist has only made changes that would enhance its off-road capabilities. Starting with the paint job. It is actually a shade that is similar to the Tropical Mist paint job that is available with the Adventure Persona Edition of Safari. It is not the exact shade but, looks similar.
The front bumper on the SUV has been retained. All the chrome elements on the front grille and other parts of the car have been completely blacked out. A pair of auxiliary lamps have been installed on the front grille for better visibility during off-road sessions. A long LED light bar has also been installed on the roof.
Coming to the side profile, the SUV looks a lot more rugged and that is mainly because of the wheels. The stock dual tone alloy wheels on the Safari has been removed and replaced with all black off-road wheels and All-Terrain tyres. If you notice carefully, it can be seen that, this is not a regular Tata Safari. Artist has imagined it as 4×4 SUV. The ground clearance on this Safari is also increased that is probably because of a raised suspension setup. A metal foot step is also seen on the side of the car. Overall, the render looks pretty neat but, unfortunately we don’t think that Tata will be launching a 4×4 or an AWD version of Safari in the market.
It looks like, only the exteriors on this SUV were modified. Safari will continue to offer all the features that it generally offers. Tata Safari comes with features like electrically adjustable driver seat, touchscreen infotainment system, JBL speaker system, huge panoramic sunroof, leather wrapped seats, captain seats and bench seat options for second row passengers, multi function steering wheel, cruise control, automatic climate control and so on.
Tata Safari a mentioned above, is based on Harrier SUV. Safari is slightly taller and longer than Harrier and it gets a different design at the rear. It is powered by the same engine as Harrier. It gets a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox options.
