According to the reports, as new features, Advanced Driving Assessment System (ADAS) and 360-degree view camera can be included in it.
How will the design of the new Safari be?
The new Safari will be very similar to the current model. However, slight changes can be made to it. Updated grille and bumpers can be given in the SUV with silver finishing. The car seen during testing was seen with big round headlights. It can also be provided with new LED taillights with Daytime Running Lights (DRL).The company can also bring this vehicle in many new color options.
New Safari will come with 2.0 liter turbocharged diesel engine
No changes will be made to the powertrain of the new Tata Safari . It gets the same Kryotec 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine that powers the Harrier. This engine can generate 168bhp power and 350Nm torque. For transmission, the motor can be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox apart from a 6-speed automatic torque converter unit. However, it can also be given a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine, which is available in the Nexon.
Car cabin will be equipped with latest features
Since the Safari is currently the most powerful vehicle in the company’s line-up, it gets a panoramic sunroof, ventilated front and middle seats, an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 9-speaker sound from JBL. Features like system, wireless phone charger, six airbags, hill start/stop control and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) can be given. Currently, the cabin of the SUV comes with brown inserts and brownish-cream seat upholstery.
What will be its cost?
The price and availability of the new Safari in the Indian market will be informed at the time of its launch. However, it is being speculated that its price may start from around Rs 16 to 18 lakhs.
Tata Safari may also come in petrol engine
The Safari available in the Indian market is currently available only in diesel variants, while most of the cars in this range are also available in petrol variants. The demand for vehicles with petrol engines remains high in the country, but due to the absence of petrol variants, there is also a negative impact on the sales of Safari somewhere. Keeping this in mind, Tata may soon launch Safari in the petrol variant .
