All-new Tata Safari’s first owner Parmish Verma shares story behind buying it

Last month, popular actor and singer Parmish Verma from Punjab became the first owner of the latest-generation Tata Safari SUV. He shared a few pictures with the Safari and also revealed that he owned the Safari Dicor too. He has now made a video that tells his story and why he chose the Tata Safari over any other vehicle.

Parmish starts the video by sharing the story of the old Tata Safari Dicor. He tells the viewers that when he came from Australia, he saved money to buy the Tata Safari Dicor. It was his dream car back then and he also wanted to gift the vehicle to his younger brother who passed the matriculation with a good score. Parmish has been associated with Tata Harrier too. How? Well, he was in the Tata Harrier TVC and that’s when he found the all-new Harrier to be very interesting.

He also says that after spending time with the Harrier, he decided that whenever Tata announces the launch of the Safari he will get it. So when Tata did announce the launch of the all-new Safari, Parmish booked the vehicle and got the first delivery in the country.

The video shows Parmish going to take the delivery of the all-new Safari at night. He uses a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen to reach the Tata Motors Chandigarh dealership with his few friends. The dealership had arranged a grand event with music and dance events where the employees of the showroom danced to the songs sung by Parmish.

Later, he was called to unveil the car along with his friends. He unveiled the vehicle and took the delivery of the car. He also called his younger brother and showed him the car on video.

The all-new Tata Safari is the second vehicle based on the OMEGA-Arc platform that underpins the Harrier. It is the only seven-seater vehicle offered by Tata Motors at the moment. Parmish chose the fully-loaded top-end XZA+ variant and which comes with a long list of features. To start with, it gets Oyster White cabin with leatherette seats, an Ashwood grey themed dashboard, iRA connected technology, a massive panoramic sunroof, digital-analogue instrument cluster with a big 7.0-inch screen, six airbags, and more.

With the all-new Safari, Tata offers captain seats in the middle row that makes it much more premium and comfortable. There is even a 7-seater variant with the top-end trim that gets a bench seat in the middle for three.

Just like the Tata Harrier, the Safari gets a 2.0-litre KRYOTEC diesel engine that produces a maximum power of 170 PS and peak torque of 350 Nm. It gets both automatic and manual transmission. There is a 6-speed manual transmission as standard while customers can choose the 6-speed automatic transmission too.

There is no petrol engine available with the all-new Safari. Also, unlike the last-generation model, Tata does not offer a 4X4 system with the all-new model.
