Tata Safari is one of India's first SUVs featuring 4x4, a reasonable interior for reasonable people, and other amenities. The new Safari, which debuted earlier this year, is stylish, soft, and well-equipped, and it makes a strong case for itself with a genuinely usable third row.

The new Safari is clearly built on the 5-seat Harrier; much of the front end looks similar, but the split headlight arrangement is shared, and the only notable distinction is the Safari's grille's new, chrome-finished tri-arrow pattern. There's a higher ceiling with the kink that the old Safari was famous for. For the third row, there's a huge quarter-glass with an unusual design element buttressing it from the roof rails to the body panel. The new Safari is 80mm taller and 63mm longer than the Harrier, but the width and wheelbase remain the same. The 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels on the new Safari are a size larger than those on the Harrier.
Cabin comfort and interior:
The top model of Safari's interior is finished in Oyster White, with the dashboard maintaining Tata Motors' contemporary design language. With the installation of an electronic parking brake, there are a reasonable amount of buttons available. Because the Safari is a three-row SUV, it comes in 6- and 7-passenger versions, with the second row including two captain seats or a bench seat. The aisle between the two captain seats provides access to the third row in a 6-seat arrangement. The second row of the 7-seat variation is a bench that divides it in a 60:40 ratio. It can be folded, and allows kerbside access to the third row.
Engine and Speed:
Tata Safari 2021 has the Kryotec 2.0-litre in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, providing 170PS of maximum power and 350 Nm of peak torque. A 6-speed MT or 6-speed AT torque converter can be paired with the mill. Eco, City, and Sport are the available driving modes in Safari.
The new Safari features advanced ESP with 14 additional functions, an electronic parking brake with auto hold, six airbags, and all-disc brakes. Amongst its many safety features are Hill hold control, Hill descent control, TPMS, Auto dimming IRVM, child seat isofix anchor points, and perimetric alarm system.
