Tata Safari – The Icon Is Back
The iconic SUV made its return to the Indian market, albeit with a very different avatar from its predecessor. This new Safari has a lot of resemblance with the Harrier both in terms of the exteriors and interiors. Under the hood is a 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel motor that cranks out 170 HP of power and 350 Nm of torque. There are two gearbox options on offer, a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic. Tata chose to build the new Safari using a monocoque chassis and front-wheel-drive powertrain as opposed to the ladder-on frame and all-wheel-drive in the outgoing model which made it one of the most capable off-roaders in its segment. The SUV is available with 2 seating options, a 6-seater that comes with captain seats and a 7-seater with a bench in the middle seat.
