2021 Tata Safari (Gravitas) revealed
- Building on the Safari brand’s cult fan following, Tata has cunningly revealed the 2021 Safari, which is nothing but the 7-seat Harrier that was previously confirmed to wear the Tata Gravitas badge.
- From the front, the 2021 Safari doesn’t have much to differentiate itself from the Harrier save for that slightly flashier grille.
- However, the Safari is 63mm longer than the Harrier which allows the former to accommodate 2 extra seats. This , in turn, has resulted in a completely redesigned rear-end which is more upright and boxier when compared to the Harrier’s.
- Other than this, expect the Safari to be powered by the same 168bhp 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine from the updated Harrier. It will be offered with both manual and auto transmission options. However, 4WD will not be available at launch, which isn’t something you expect from a Tata Safari.
- Also noteworthy is the fact that this new 2021 model isn’t a utilitarian body-on-frame SUV like previous Safaris. It, instead, is based on a Land Rover-derived Omega architecture.
- Tata claims that this new SUV will hit showrooms this month itself, and therefore, its price reveal should be really close.
