Tata Motors is one of the leading car manufacturers in India. Tata Safari is currently the flagship model from the manufacturer and it is also the only 7-seater SUV from Tata currently. There are several editions of Tata Safari available in the market and people like the SUV for its bold and dominating looks and sturdy build quality. By now, we all know that Tata Safari is a front wheel drive SUV and it is not suitable for extreme off-roading. We have seen people take Safari and Harrier off-road but, we do not recommend doing the same. We have also seen several render images where Safari is imagined as a hardcore off-road SUV. Here we have one such digitally rendered image of an off-road spec Safari that looks bold.
The image has been shared by bozzconcepts on their Instagram page. The artist has made minor changes to the stock Safari to convert it into an off-roader. The SUV is finished in Pearl White shade which looks good on the SUV, especially with blacked out roof. The Safari in its stock form has several chrome garnishes at many places. All of them have either been removed or blacked out. Starting with the front grille, the tri-arrow desing elements are still there but, it is now finished in black instead of chrome. The dual-function LED DRLs have been retained.

Coming down to the bumper, the design remains the same but, the silver coloured faux skid plate has been blacked out. The fog lamps on this SUV are aftermarket units too. Coming to the side profile, the Safari looks a lot more taller than standard Safari. That is because the SUV now rides on a set of chunky looking off-road spec tyres and metal rims. The thick black claddings along with the chunky tyres completely change the look of the SUV. There are marker lamps mounted on the roof of the Safari and the roof rails have been blacked out too. Coming to the rear, the tail gate has Safari badging finished in black and similarly the rear diffuser have also been blacked out.
It should be noted that this is just a digitally rendered image but, after seeing the image we would want someone to actually try these mods on a Tata Safari. Tata Safari is actually based on its 5 seater sibling Harrier and Tata is currently working on a facelift for Harrier. It expected to come with more features than before and would also sport some cosmetic changes. We expect Safari to get the same changes as Harrier in future. Safari comes with decent number of features like leather upholstery, ventilated front and second row seat (6-seater version), touchscreen infotainment system, panoramic sunroof, JBL audio system, automatic climate control and so on. It is powered by the same engine as Tata Harrier. It uses a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. The SUV is available with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
