The 2021 Tata Safari is the first all-new model in two decades, and it looks nothing likes its predecessor. Today we came across this video to see if the new one is as practical as the old one used to be.
Tata Motors launched the all-new Safari in India last month. The Safari nameplate has been around for over two decades, with the previous model arguably one of the first Indian vehicles to be lifestyle-oriented. The new Safari is an all-new model and is based on the same platform that also underpins the smaller Harrier. The response has been positive for the SUV, with 3,000 bookings already taken place in under a month of being on sale. Today we came across this video that tests the practicality aspect of the new Safari.
The video has been uploaded by The Indian Explorer on YouTube in which we can see the new Tata Safari being tested if a person can sleep in it comfortably. The video starts with the reviewer folding all seats, followed by adjusting the front seats for his height which is 5 foot 7 inches. After folding the rear seats, there is still one hand span’s space available. The third-row seats lie flush with the floor, giving a flat surface that can be used as a bed when going for a camping trip with the Safari. Overall, space in the new Safari is more than adequate for two adults to sleep without any issues.
The 2021 Tata Safari comes loaded with features like auto projector headlights with LED DRLs with indicator function, LED taillights, an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, semi-digital instrument cluster, auto-dimming IRVM, cruise control, driving modes, rain-sensing wipers, height-adjustable driver’s seat, tilt and telescoping adjustable steering wheel, a tyre pressure monitoring system, an 8-speaker audio system and more. Safety features include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, Hill Hold Assist, roll-over mitigation, rear disc brakes and an Electronic Stability Program.
Prices for the Tata Safari start from Rs 14.69 lakh and goes up to Rs 21.45 lakh for the Adventure Persona Edition. Do note that all prices are ex-showroom. It is powered by the FCA-sourced 2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that produces 170 PS/350 Nm of peak power and torque figures. It can be paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.
