All-new Tata Safari’s waiting period extends to 2.5 months

Tata launched the all-new Safari in the Indian market earlier this year. Based on the OMEGA-Arc platform, Safari is the second vehicle after the Harrier to utilise the same platform. After the price announcement in February 2021, Tata started delivering the Safari to the customers. However, it seems like the new Safari is gaining quick popularity and because of that, there is a waiting period of over 2.5 months for buying the vehicle.

According to CarDekho, the waiting period depends on the variant and the city. The longest waiting period of about 2.5 months is from Ghaziabad, UP. The shortest waiting period is for one month and there are many cities where the buyers have to wait only for a month. Here is a list of major cities and their waiting period.

The price of the all-new Tata Safari starts at Rs 14.69 lakh and the top-end version goes up to Rs 21.45 lakh. The all-new Safari is powered only by the diesel engine option. It gets both manual and automatic variants. The Safari is available in 9 variants. Tata has also added a Safari Adventure edition that gets a unique colour and a different colour theme inspired by nature. The cabin gets a brown interior inspired by the sand dust of the desert. Also, the exterior gets a unique colour that is developed especially for the variant. Even the wheels of the Adventure Edition look different and are in black colour.

Tata Safari is a diesel-only

Tata Safari is powered by the 2.0-litre KRYOTEC diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 170 PS and peak torque of 350 Nm. There is a choice between a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. There is no petrol variant available with the all-new Tata Safari, however, Tata may launch the petrol variants at a later date if the demand arises.

The vehicle also gets a long list of safety features. It gets a 14-function ESP that gets various traction modes, terrain modes and more. All the four-wheels of the Safari get disc brake too. The vehicle gets six airbags with the top-end variant too. Tata is yet to get the Harrier or the Safari to the NCAP test so we are not sure about the ratings of the vehicle yet. However, we may get the Global NCAP ratings soon.

Tata will also launch the all-new production version of the HBX in the Indian market later this year. The all-new car will be an entry-level crossover for the brand that will take on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis and the Mahindra KUV100. In fact, the upcoming Hyundai AX, which is currently getting tested in South Korea will also appear in the market later this year and it will take on the Safari directly.
