HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Tata Motors has recently announced that it will come back with the Tata Safari soon.
  • Surprisingly, Tata Gravitas has been renamed as the all-new Tata Safari.
  • The company is all set to launch the upcoming Tata Safari this month.

What if I tell you that Tata Motors is all set to reintroduce the all-new Tata Safari in India? Indeed! Tata Motors has recently announced that the company is all set to bring the Tata Safari back. Meanwhile, it is the Tata Buzzard that was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show 2019 and also the Tata Gravitas that was recently showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 that will be rebranded as the all-new Tata Safari.

Expected Features

With a seven-seater layout, Tata Safari will get features that are similar to the Tata Harrier in terms of interior. However, sharing the OMEGA ARCH platform with Tata Harrier the all-new Tata Safari will come with a muscular front fascia, stepped up roof and stadium seating that is very similar to the outgoing version.

Expected Engine & Powertrain

Under the hood, the upcoming Tata Safari is expected to come with a 2.0L Kryotec turbocharged diesel engine. This engine also powers the current-generation Tata Harrier while generating 170BHP of power alongside 350Nm of torque. Further, the engine comes mated to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter. We expect the all-new Tata Safari to come with a similar tuning. There is also a possibility for Tata Motors to introduce a 4WD variant of the 2021 Tata Safari later.

When launched in India, Tata Safari will directly go against the likes of MG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV500. Meanwhile, even Hyundai is all set to introduce a 7-Seater variant of the Hyundai Creta. Further, Tata Motors is all set to launch the all-new Tata Safari this month and the company has announced that the same will reach the dealership soon.
