Tata Motors to launch Safari SUV on Republic Day
Tata Motors is all set to launch the new-generation Tata Safari on January 26 in the Indian markets. Earlier, the automobile manufacturer revealed photos of the exterior of this SUV, and now images of the interior are surfacing on the internet.
The new Tata SUV will come with updated alloy wheel design and three different colour options – Daytona Grey, Orcus White and Royale Blue. The estimated price is expected to be around Rs 15 lakh onwards. New Safari was showcased in Auto Expo 2020.
This new Tata Safari comes with a grey and white themed cabin with an ash wood trim on the dash giving it a premium look. The touchscreen infotainment system is expected to be of 8.8 inches although with e-parking brake and auto-hold function. This SUV resembles a lot like a three-row version of the Harrier and also has a lot of design details in common.
Focusing on the seating, Tata Safari will be available in both 6 and 7-seat configurations. The former will get a pair of captain chairs in the second row, while the latter will get a bench seat instead. The third row will get a bench seat regardless, with pillar-mounted AC vents for both passengers. The SUV is also expected to get electrically-operated tailgate with gesture control.
Other than that, the Safari will also offer a panoramic sunroof, a 9-speaker JBL audio system, and a 7-inch MID in the instrument console. Under the hood, the SUV will have a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine, which can generate a maximum power of 170 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm. Transmission choices will include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
This new SUV has created a lot of buzz amongst the automobile lovers and is set to rival the likes of MG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV500 upon launch.
