When the all-new Tata Safari SUV was launched in 2021, it became a big hit in the country due to its design and premium appeal, even without any 4X4 option. After this, it also got several versions and colour updates. But now it is going to get a big update. Recently, the facelifted version of the Safari was spied testing on the roads. Tata Motors is expected to unveil the updated Safari at the 2023 Auto Expo.
As the new Safari was spied testing, it is difficult to give exact details about the design changes. Although the front silhouette looks similar to the current model and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) sensors can be found in its lower front bumper. The new Tata Safari will get ADAS features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Collision Assist, and Blind Spot Monitoring.
Its upright silhouette will be similar to the current model. It could get redesigned front and rear bumpers, a newly redesigned headlamp setup, updated tail lights and new alloy wheels. However, the current 18-inch alloy wheels were seen on the spied car.
Interior, the layout design of its cabin is expected to remain similar to the current model. Still, this SUV is expected to get significant updates like an extensive touchscreen infotainment system with connected car tech and a new operating system.
Also, it is expected to get many new features, including a 360-degree camera, a new LED headlamp, and a fully digital instrument cluster.
The 2023 Safari may get the option of a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel and a new 1.5-litre Revotron turbo petrol engine. It will get the option of a 6-speed MT and 6-speed torque converter automatic.
Right now, the ex-showroom price of the current model of Safari is between Rs 15.44 lakh to Rs 23.75 lakh, and it is expected that the new Safari can be expensive by Rs 1 lakh.
The new Safari will compete with the soon-to-be-launched MG Hector Plus facelift. A 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with mild-hybrid and non-mild-hybrid technology will power the car. There will also be an option of a 2.0-litre Fiat-sourced turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine.
