The facelifted Safari will be available in four variants: Smart, Pure, Adventure, and Accomplished. Interested customers can make their reservations for a token amount of Rs 25,000. Prospective buyers can book the same either through an offline or an online medium – any authorised dealership or the official website. Tata Motors will soon release pricing details, followed by deliveries.
Tata Safari Facelift: Design
The redesigned front fascia of the Safari is somewhat inspired by the Curvv Concept. Up front, it has a new grille, vertically split headlights, and integrated LED DRLs that run the length of the hood. The main headlamp units now have an upright position, and the SUV's alloy wheels have been redesigned. At the rear, the new Safari and Harrier feature a connected light bar design.
Tata Safari Facelift: Interior and features
Similar to the 2023 Nexon and Nexon EV, the 2023 Safari features a 12.3-inch infotainment display and a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster. There is ambient lighting in the cabin to generate a more vibrant atmosphere. The new Safari also has the two-spoke steering wheel that debuted in the refreshed Nexon and Nexon EV and features a backlit panel with the Tata Motors emblem and mounted controls. Other features include a power-operated tailboard, a 10-speaker JBL sound system with Harmon AudioworX, paddle controls, and a 360-degree camera.
Tata Safari Facelift: Safety features
In terms of safety, the facelifted Safari offers up to seven airbags, with six airbags being standard across all trim levels. The premium models will be equipped with a seventh airbag designed to safeguard the driver's knees. Additionally, the new Safari is equipped with Level-2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) technology, which includes at least eleven safety features.
Tata Safari Facelift: Engine
The Safari SUVs will retain Tata Motors' dependable 2.0-litre diesel engine, which will be paired with either a 6-speed automatic gearbox or a 6-speed manual gearbox. This engine generates 167bhp and 350Nm of peak torque. It provides three driving modes, including Eco, City, and Sport, as well as three traction modes, including Normal, Rough, and Wet.
