Tata Motors is getting a very positive response from its all-new Safari. In Delhi NCR, Tata Motors celebrated the success of the SUV by delivering 100 units in a single day. Tata Motors mentioned that a maximum of the customers opted for the XZA+ trim with Royal Blue and Orcus White as the top choice shade.
Tata Safari – Reclaim Your Life
The iconic Safari had all the Indians curious over it every time they spotted it on the road. With the new Safari, things are a little different in terms of the overall design which looks very much like an extended Harrier, which is not at all a bad thing but it has no resemblance with the old legendary Safari. The new Safari underpinned by the OMEGARC (Optimised Modular Efficient Global Advanced – Architecture) that derives itself from the Land Rover’s D8 platform. Powering the Safari is an FCA-sourced 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel motor that pushes out 170 HP of power and 350 Nm of torque. There are two gearbox options, a 6-speed manual and a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed automatic.
Old vs New
The older Safari built on a body-on-frame chassis was famous for its colossal stance and its highly capable off-road ability, but the current Safari now comes with a monocoque chassis and front-wheel-drive powertrain only which is not quite the best option for the ones looking for some off-road fun. But, Tata Motors is offering a terrain response mode that tweaks the SUV for mild off-roading. In terms of the wheelbase, the new Safari comes with a wheelbase of 2,741 mm whereas the old Safari was shorter by 91 mm at 2,650 mm.
Tata Motors is offering the new Safari with 6 variants – XE, XM/XMA, XT, XT+, XZ/XZA and XZ+/XZA+ and the price for the base starts at INR 14.70 and goes all the way up to INR 21.46 (ex-showroom) for the top-spec XZA+ Adventure. The SUV is available in two seating options, 6-seater which comes with 2nd-row captain seats and a 7-seater configuration with a 2nd-row bench seat.
