The 2021 Tata Safari three-row SUV will be offered in a 6-seat layout with a bench seat in the middle seats or a 7-seat configuration with captain seats in the second row. It gets a new black and beige interior theme with the same design as the Harrier. The new Safari gets a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster, 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with iRA Connected Car Tech. Apart from this, it is equipped with an electronic parking brake, 9-speaker JBL audio system, panoramic sunroof, terrain response mode. Along with this, 6 airbags have also been given for safety.
Commenting on this achievement of Tata Safari 2021, Shailesh Chandra, President, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Business Unit said, "We have achieved this milestone during one of the toughest phases in the long history of our country." Let us tell you that all the restrictions were imposed in the country given the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. He further added that the Safari in its new avatar has been built on the OMEGARC platform of Tata Motors' IMPACT 2.0 design language. Inspired by the architecture of Land Rover's famous D8 platform, he said that "the brand is already a segment leader".
Talking about the engine and power of the new 2021 Tata Safari, it will be powered by the same 2.0-liter Kryotec turbocharged diesel engine that is also seen in the Harrier. Which generates a peak power of 170bhp and torque output of 350Nm. Like the Harrier, this SUV also gets 6-speed manual and 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox options. The new Safari is inspired by Land Rover's Omega architecture, which comes with a 4WD (four-wheel-drive) system and an electric powertrain. However, for the time being, the new Tata 7-seater SUV is available with a 2WD drivetrain system. The model lineup may get a new 4×4 variant later.
