Auto Expo 2023: The Harrier EV, Sierra EV, Punch i-CNG, Altroz i-CNG, Altroz Racer, and the Avinya and Curvv concepts were all unveiled by Tata Motors at the Auto Expo 2023. The firm also introduced the facelifts of its well-known SUV combo, the Harrier and the Safari at the event. Tata showcased the Harrier Red Dark edition and the Safari Red Dark edition. The two SUVs already come in the Dark edition from the manufacturer, but the 'Red' prefix offers more than just visual upgrades. The Harrier and Safari models now have a larger, improved touchscreen, ADAS technology, and a preview of features that will probably be included in the standard models. Later this year, Tata intends to launch the Harrier and the Safari Red Dark versions.

The addition of an ADAS system, a 360-degree surround view camera, a new and enhanced touchscreen infotainment system, and a redesigned instrument cluster are the four most significant modifications in the new Tata Safari. The ADAS suite includes several active and passive safety technologies such as autonomous emergency braking, lane change alert, collision mitigation system, blind spot monitoring system, door open alert, driver monitoring system, high beam assist, and front collision warning.
