Tata has been building the hype for the new Safari SUV by releasing teasers and showing off different sections of the new flagship. Today they have revealed how the new LED taillights will look like.
Tata Motors is gearing up for the launch of the new-generation Safari SUV this month. Ahead of its launch, the automaker seems to be on a mission to share teasers of how it will look. Tata has already revealed how the new grille and the rear quarter window on the D pillar of the new Safari will look like and now they have revealed how the Safari’s rear section will look like.
The teaser image shows the new LED taillights, which have a passing resemblance to the Gravitas SUV when it was showcased at the Indian AutoExpo last year. Also, the taillights are likely to be integrated with a connecting strip across the boot lid, possibly in a shade of piano black and the Tata logo embossed in the middle.
Tata Motors has revealed that the production-spec Gravitas SUV will be named as the Safari in India. The Safari is quite possibly the most notable nameplates in the Indian automobile industry, and it will make a return as Tata's flagship SUV in India. The 7-seater rendition of the Harrier that was exhibited at the 2020 Indian AutoExpo was codenamed as the Gravitas. Tata Motors has been utilizing various monikers, calling the vehicle as to the Buzzard additionally during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. In any case, Tata says that the impending 7-seater SUV was always planned to be Tata Safari.
Other exterior features on the Tata Safari appear to be similar to that seen on the Harrier. There are some changes with the Safari getting a taller stance, running boards and new alloys. It also sports increased height and the rear gets a more upright arrangement leading to better interior space especially for third-row passengers. The interiors should be similar to the Harrier as well. It sports similar dashboard and interior layout with an 8.8- inch touchscreen infotainment system, electrically adjustable driver seat, sunroof, keyless entry, and cruise control. To be offered in 6 and 7 seater options, the Safari will get captain seats in its 6 seater version and bench type seats for the 7 seater variant.
The Tata Safari will be powered by the Harrier's Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 170 PS/350 Nm of peak power and torque. The engine will come mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Dimension wise, Tata has also added 63mm to the Harrier’s length and 80mm to the height to make way for a decent third row. And like the Harrier, the new Safari too will be based on the Land Rover-derived Omega architecture.
