Tata Safari and Harrier facelifts: Price announcement next week
The new Tata Safari and Harrier facelift models get a similar design inside and out. The Safari, being the premium SUV, gets a more pronounced front grille. Both SUVs get C-shaped housings for the LED lights but the ones on Tata Safari are positioned a bit higher and have a more rectangular shape. A thin LED strip runs across the grille, serving as the DRLs on the two SUVs. At the rear, the tail lamps are now connected by a light bar.
Inside, the Tata Safari and Harrier facelifts get two size options for the freestanding touchscreen infotainment system – 10.25-inch and 12.3-inch. There is also a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster onboard. The key difference between the two facelifts is the finish on the dashboard. The two-spoke steering wheel is heavily inspired by the ‘Curvv’ concept. It has an illuminated Tata logo at the centre. Other features include a 10-speaker JBL sound system, paddle shifters, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof, a 360-degree camera, and an ADAS package.
The SUVs remain mechanically unchanged under the hood and continue to be powered by the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that was found on the outgoing models. This diesel engine can churn out a maximum power output of 170hp and 350Nm of torque. It can be paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Tata has also published the fuel economy numbers for the two SUVs. You can read about them here.
After the price announcement next week, Tata will start shipping deliveries of the Safari and Harrier facelifts by the end of this month. In India, the Tata Safari and Harrier rival Mahindra XUV700, Hyundai Alcazar, Jeep Compass, Mahindra Scorpio N, and MG Hector Plus.
