Wondering, how big is the new Tata Safari in comparison to its 5-seater counterpart? Check out our Tata Harrier VS Tata Safari Dimension Comparison for details
Tata Motors is preparing to launch the 2021 Safari in the country on coming January 26. The upcoming Tata Safari is an important product for the carmaker, as it will be reviving the 2-decade old nameplate in the Indian market again. The Safari was launched for the first time in the country in year 1998 and was on sale until 2019. Then, it met the sad fate of stringent emission and pedestrian safety norms. Now the Safari is all set to make a comeback, but as a 7-seat version of the Harrier. Both of these Tata SUVs are a cut from the same cloth, as they get similar underpinnings, powertrains and drivetrains. But how different are they in terms of dimensions? Let’s find out.
Tata Harrier is a 5-seater SUV, which measures 4,598 mm in length, 1,894 mm in width, and 1,706 mm in height. In comparison, the 7-seater Safari will be 4,661 mm long and 1,786 mm tall, which is an increment of 63 mm and 80 mm, respectively. The overall width of 1,894 mm, however, remains identical for both the SUVs.
Tata Harrier VS Tata Safari Dimensions
Moving over to the wheelbase, the Harrier’s front and rear wheels sit 2,741 mm away from each other, and this figure stays the same for the 7-seater Safari as well. However, the extra length, height, and seats lend the 2021 Safari with some extra weight. In contrast to the Harrier’s kerb weight that ranges from 1,650 to 1,675 kg, the 2021 Safari tips the scale at 1,785 kilos.
Talking of the powertrain options, the 2021 Safari will come with the same engine as the Harrier. The FCA-sourced 2.0L turbocharged diesel engine is capable of churning out a rated power output of 170 PS and max torque of 350 Nm. It will be available with a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed AT. Although, Tata Motors will likely be bumping-up the peak power and torque outputs in the Safari to lug around the extra weight. Once launched, the 2021 Tata Safari will be competing with the likes of MG Hector Plus and upcoming Mahindra XUV500.
