It's not hidden that Tata Motors is gearing up to give generation updates to the well-liked SUVs in its lineup, the Harrier and the Safari. We have already witnessed a couple of spy shots revealing both the interior and exterior of these models, but in a recent development, some freshly leaked images of the Safari interior have emerged online. As can be seen via spy shots, the interior of the updated Safari looks more enriched and premium than the current version. According to the leaked images, the modified 4-spoke steering wheel, which features a display-like screen from the Curvv concept between the mounted controls on each side, stands out as the most obvious change from the current model. Right now, there is no confirmation, however, it is expected that this display might offer a range of driving or travel information or it could show the lit Tata logo.
The infotainment system on the 2023 Safari also looks brand-new because it has sharp edges in contrast to the softened ones on the 10.25-inch screens available with the current Safari Red Dark Editions. Additionally, it seems bigger than before. Again, there is no official upgrade; nevertheless, the automaker might offer a new software interface for the new infotainment system. Here are more details regarding the upcoming SUV's interior, which is expected to arrive in the nation during the festive season or sometime in 2024.

In addition to the above-cited information, the spy photos also indicated a gloss black panel with two bands of haptic buttons and two toggle switches for temperature and blower settings, similar to the one Tata displayed with the Curvv and Sierra EV concepts.
A full-width, coloured, gloss dashboard insert was visible in place of the existing model's faux wood-like edge on the top half of the dashboard, while the bottom half looks to feature leatherette padding with distinct double-stitching. The interior of the SUV also hinted at a fully digital instrument cluster and an inverted, much sleeker design for the central AC vents, which still have a trapezoidal form.
