Tata Motors is all set to launch their all-new seven seater SUV Safari in the market. We drove the SUV a couple of weeks ago and review for the same is available on our website and YouTube channel. The new Safari is actually different from the older version. It is actually based on the Harrier that was launched in market back in 2019. Tata has already started production of Safari and it has started reaching the dealerships too. The Safari will be officially launched in the market later this month. By now, we have seen several review and off-road videos of Safari on the internet. Here we have another video where a Tata Hexa owner shares his opinion about the new Safari after taking it for a drive.
The video has been uploaded by Ridiculously Amazing on their youtube channel. The video shows vlogger along with his friend who owns a Tata Hexa experiencing the new Safari SUV on city roads. The vlogger’s friend then shares his experience about the SUV. The video shows him driving the SUV and the moment he starts the vehicle, first thing that comes to his mind are the NVH levels. The cabin feels a lot more insulated than Harrier or any other Tata SUV.
There is enough punch packed in the engine and is refined too. The vlogger does not talk much about the way new Safari looks. He just concentrated on the way it drives how comfortable it is. Hexa owner after driving the Safari noticed certain things about the SUV. He felt like, the SUV does not offer much space on the inside, With all the three rows of seat up, there is literally no space for luggage. That was one of the main issue that Hexa owner felt. He feels Tata could have provided a bit more space on the inside. Hexa owner also mentioned that the steering was very light even at higher speeds and wanted it to be a bit more heavier.
Other than that, he also said that Safari was not giving him a commanding seating position. It felt a bit low in comparison to Harrier. He also mentioned that it does not feel like he is getting into an SUV. Other than that he liked the Safari very much specially the manual version. He said that the gearshifts felt pretty smooth. He like the manual more than the automatic version. The engine felt refined and he also said that the suspension felt a bit stiff.
He was impressed with the features like electronic parking brake, panoramic sunroof, JBL speakers, touchscreen infotainment screen etc that Tata is offering and said that he would definitely recommend it to anyone who is planning to buy an SUV for the first time. Tata Safari is available with both 6 and 7 seater options. It is available with a diesel engine option only. It is the same engine that powers Tata Harrier. The 2.0 litre turbo diesel engine generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm and comes with both manual and automatic transmission options.
