Impact 2.0 design inspiration

The new Tata Safari comes based on Tata's Impact 2.0 design language.

It is basically a longer version of Harrier and gets a very familiar front fascia look. The headlamps look exactly the same as the Harrier's and so do the front main grille and sleek high mounted LED DRLs.
