2021 Tata Safari - Looks and Colour Options
From the front it surely looks like the Harrier, however, there are some key differences like the different skid plate design, chrome element on the headlight and also the tri-arrow design grille which gets chrome treatment. The side profile is where the changes are noticeable and you get bigger 18-inch alloy wheels, a larger overhang to accommodate the 3rd-row passenger which also increases the height of the SUV, functional roof rails (for non-panoramic sunroof variants), Safari badging and the rear profile gets a tweaked taillight and bumper design. The new Safari is available in three colour options - Royal Blue, Daytona Grey, Orcus White and Mist Blue.
