Tata Safari to make a comeback; bookings to open this month

Tata Safari is one of the most iconic SUVs the Indian carmaker has ever made. Obviously, the company’s decision to pull the plug on Safari last year had disappointed many fans across the country. But a few days ago, Tata motors shared a video on its social media handles, reminiscing Safari’s achievements in India and how it wished the SUV was still around. But little did we know that the carmaker had plans to resurrect the Safari brand. Tata Motors today announced that it will launch all-new Safari SUV this year. Now, just to clarify things, the company noted that it will revive the Safari brand with the SUV that has been codenamed Gravitas. Yes, what was revealed last year at the Auto Expo as Gravitas is now being christened Safari. As noted by Tata Motors, the new Safari will start reaching the showrooms this month and bookings too will commence soon.

Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors, said, “We are proud and elated to re-introduce our flagship SUV–Safari. The Safari, an iconic brand with a strong following, has been the most sought after SUV on Indian roads for well over two decades. In its new avatar, the Safari will appeal to the socially active, fun-loving customers who seek out unique experiences and adventure. Its design, performance, versatility, features, and long lasting build quality, reinforce the SUV lifestyle to provide unending pleasure. We are confident that the launch of the Safari will once again re-energise the market, amplifying its cult status.”

Wait for Tata Gravitas almost over; India launch in a few weeks

The all-new Safari is essentially a seven-seater Harrier and is based on the OMEGARC platform. It uses the company’s Impact 2.0 design language and looks quite similar to Harrier. However, it will get different design for the alloy wheels, a stepped-up roof to make adequate headroom for third-row passengers, faux scuff plate on the rear bumper, redesigned tail lights with different LED signature. An interesting thing to note is that Safari will be taller and longer than the Harrier although both the SUVs are likely to have the same wheelbase.
Tata Safari will be propelled by the same powerplant that powers Harrier. It is a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine that makes 168 bhp and 350 Nm of peak torque. This engine comes paired to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard but buyers can also opt for the six-speed automatic gearbox.
