The ventilated rear seat is now offered with the standard model of the Safari, but, the buyers will have to opt for the top-spec variant i.e the XZ+ and the XZA+ variant.
Tata Tata Safari now gets ventilated seats in the second row as well, while this feature was earlier limited to the Gold and the Dark edition of the Safari, Tata has now announced that the XZ+ and the XZA+ variant will feature ventilated captain seats in the second row as well. However, the Adventure Persona variant which was introduced at the time of Safari’s debut still misses out on this feature.
More importantly, this new ventilated second row is only restricted to the 6-seater variant. The 7-seater Safari gets a bench in the middle-row, hence it is a little difficult to integrate a seat ventilation mechanism.
The addition of this new feature in the Safari has come at no extra cost. The retail price of the XZ+ and the XZA+ variant is still the same as before. The price of the new Safari starts from Rs 14.99 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes all the way up to the Rs 23.30 lakh (ex-showroom) mark.
Other features and the mechanicals of the Safari stay the same as before. The SUV gets the same 2.0-litre turbo-diesel mill and the gearbox options include a manual, as well as, a Hyundai sourced six-speed torque-converter.
