Tata Safari is launched at the introductory price of Rs 14.74 lakh. Here is the specification comparison between Tata Safari and Harrier.
As we all know, Tata Motors has just launched the Safari as the seven-seater version of the Tata Harrier on 15th February 2021. Before launch, the Tata Safari was referred to as Tata Gravitas, which is the name of the concept version showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The three-row version of the Tata Harrier is expected to replicate the success of the existing five-seater model. Since the Tata Safari is finally here with full details, we now can put these two vehicles’ spec sheets side by side to compare between Safari and the outgoing Tata Harrier.
It comes as no surprise that the Tata Safari arrives with substantial dimensional changes. In order to accommodate the third row, Tata Safari is extended by 63 mm in length, measuring 4,661 mm against 4,598 mm on the Harrier. The height of the Safari also sees a growth of 80 mm compared to the Harrier. However, the width and the wheelbase of the Tata Safari remain identical to those of its predecessor.
These changes in size are predictable since the Harrier is a standard 5-seater SUV while the Safari comes with a three-row seating layout, be it a six-seater or seven-seater. For the six-seater configuration, the Tata Safari comes with two captain seats for the second row while the seven-seater version gets a bench-type seat instead.
When it comes to the mechanic part, the Tata Safari brought the powertrain setting right from the Tata Harrier without any modification. It is powered by the same 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine that churns out 170 PS and 350 Nm. Similar to the Tata Harrier, the Tata Safari gets two transmission options, a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
In terms of equipment, Tata Safari carries forward a similar list of features from the Harrier. Tata Safari is offered with the same 8.8-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple Carplay and Android Auto along with other connectivity technologies. In addition, it gets other highlight features like six-way electrically adjustable driver seat, 7-inch display instrument cluster, a 9-speaker JBL audio system, cruise control, auto-dimming IRVM, multiple drive modes, panoramic sunroof, Xenon HID projector headlights and more. Exteriorly, the Safari comes with 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels instead of 18-inch wheels as in the Harrier.
Similar to the Tata Harrier, the Tata Safari comes with six airbags, ABS with EBD, a hill hold control, hill hold descent, traction control, corner stability control, rollover mitigation, electronic stability program, ESP Terrain Response, rear parking sensors, reverse parking camera, and more. Other additional safety features of the Tata Safari include electronic parking brake with auto hold and rear disc brakes.
At launch, Tata Safari is offered at the starting price of Rs 14.74 lakh. The top-spec model is priced at Rs 21.25 lakh (ex-showroom). At this price range, it is more expensive than Tata Harrier which costs from Rs 13.99 lakh to Rs 20.45 lakh (ex-showroom).
