The New Tata Safari | Design
Well, getting the first glimpse of this SUV one can easily recognize that it shares the platform with its older but smaller cousin, Harrier.
- Nevertheless, the Safari is longer wider taller than the Harrier, which is to accommodate the third row of seats.
- Also, from the front, it looks the same, minus the new grille and slightly changed bumper.
- At the rear, the similarity with the Harrier continues. The taillights though a little different looks similar to a common man’s eye.
- On the inside, the theme of look-alike is still continuing. The change? Only the colour scheme and addition of 3rd-row seats.
What Powers This Behemoth?
Let’s wrap this up fast as this gets the same powertrain and drivetrain as the Harrier.
- To begin with, Safari gets a 2.0-litre Kryotec turbo diesel engine, that puts 170hp of max power and 350Nm of peak torque.
- Sending power to the front wheels is a 6-speed manual transmission but the car also gets an option of a 6-speed AT torque converter.
- Because the new Safari underpins the Land Rover’s Omega architecture, it is possible that Tata introduces a 4X4 drivetrain in the future.
