The Adventure Persona Edition is the flagship variant for the new Tata Safari, and comes loaded to the brim with features. Today we have this owner's review of the new flagship Safari.
The all-new Tata Safari is off to a positive start in the Indian auto market after being showcased as the Gravitas concept for a couple of years. The new Safari is based on Tata’s OMEGARC platform that also underpins the smaller Harrier. Both SUVs look very similar with the most distinct difference being the Safari is quite a bit longer than the Harrier to fit the third row of seats. There are a few differences between the two with the Safari getting a new chrome grille and headlight surrounds, roof rails, and redesigned taillights. Today we came across this owner review of the flagship Safari Adventure Persona Edition.
The video has been uploaded by The Safari Traveller on YouTube. The owner of this Safari Adventure Persona Edition is going for a short trip along with his parents, and the video is a short review of the SUV. The parents are sitting in the middle row, which gets captain seats in the Adventure Persona variant. They love the spacious legroom and headroom of the middle row, with the captain seats’ separate armrest and reclining function making it a very comfortable experience for them. The owner is impressed with the stable handling and great ride quality of the new Safari. It is pretty frugal as well, returning 12 kmpl in city conditions, rising to 16 kmpl on the highway. The engine is pretty refined as well, with the diesel clatter on par with its segment rivals. The owner did find the AC to be overwhelming as the cabin wasn’t cooling as much as desired. This is most probably due to the amount of sunlight coming into the cabin due to the panoramic sunroof, which the owner thinks is a worthy premium to pay for.
Prices for the Tata Safari start from Rs 14.69 lakh for the base XE trim level 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. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.
