Tata Motors just launched the 2021 Safari in the Indian market. The new SUV is already available for test drives and the bookings are also open. However, there are some people who were expecting the 2021 Safari to be more rugged and offer proper all-wheel-drive. This definitely has upset some pure Safari enthusiast. Due to which many artists have started imagining what the Safari would look like if it was made for proper off-roading. Here, we have a video by Yogi Sejwal Design who has imagined the 2021 Tata Safari as an off-roading camper. The video is uploaded on the YouTube channel and today we showcase to you how the off-roading camper version of the Safari looks like.
The artist says that the new Safari definitely looks much better than the previous iterations. However, it has lost that rough and tough look that the old Safari had as the new Safari is based more towards luxury instead of SUV. Due to which the artist himself decided to make a more SUV-ish Safari, which is also an off-roader camper.
We can see in the video that the artist has blacked-out the bonnet and the roof of the SUV. The matte-black bonnet will not let glare hurt the eyes of the driver while off-roading. He has then blacked-out all the chrome elements in the front of the Safari. So, the headlamp surrounds and the tri-arrow grille has been blacked out except the top-most tri-arrows. The Tata logo at the front and the body is finished in sandy dust which resembles a desert. The SUV continues to get a split headlamp design. However, the LED Daytime Running Lamp and the projector headlamps are finished in yellow to increase visibility.
Coming to the side profile, the SUV still come with factory alloy wheels, but the tyres are changed to off-roading ones. The side profile also gets a decal of mountains that are finished in brown and desert brown colour. The outside rearview mirrors and B & C pillars are also blacked-out. Above, there is a camper placed on the roof-top with three LED lights. The artist says, because of the camper that sits on the roof, the panoramic sunroof is no longer functional. Overall, the SUV looks decent. There are no changes being made to the interior by the artist.
Tata Motors offer the Safari in six variants, namely XE, XM, XT, XT+, XZ, and XZ+. Tata is also offering an Adventure Persona Edition with the top-end trim that comes with blacked-out exterior trim, Charcoal-Grey alloy wheels and Desert-Brown interior instead of Onyx White. Safari’s prices start from Rs. 14.69 lakhs ex-showroom and goes all the way up to Rs. 21.45 lakhs ex-showroom.
The Safari gets the same 2.0-litre Kyrotec diesel engine as the Harrier. The engine is capable of producing 170 PS of max power and 350 Nm of peak torque. It is offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The new flagship of Tata Motors will compete against the MG Hector Plus and the upcoming Mahindra XUV500.
