Just a few days ago, Tata Motors officially announced that the all-new 2021 Tata Safari will make its India debut on the occasion of the country's 72nd Republic Day. This means that the iconic Safari moniker will be back once again in India, but this time in an all-new avatar and this new seven-seater SUV will be unveiled on January 26, 2021. The new Tata Safari is essentially the seven-seater version of the Tata Harrier and it was earlier codenamed as the Tata Gravitas. Now ahead of its India premiere, the upcoming 2021 Tata Safari has been once again spied on video. This time around, the SUV was most likely undergoing night testing and this new YT video shows its humongous road presence alongside the Toyota Innova. Let's have a look.
So, as you have seen in this above-embedded YouTube video, the upcoming new 2021 Tata Safari has a humongous road presence. The new upcoming 2021 Tata Safari has been spied in India on several occasions but this time, this video highlights its beefy dimensions and new design elements. The test mule of the SUV has even shed its camouflage to a great extent and its Orcus White colour shade looks really good. We can also see some minute details of the interior of the SUV in this video, though the visuals aren't very much clear. One can clearly see the new white colour upholstery in the Safari and even the Gravitas showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 had white colour on the inside. The new white upholstery will offer good ambience inside the cabin.
The upcoming all-new Tata Safari will be the company's flagship SUV in the Indian market. As we have already mentioned before, it will be essentially an extended seven-seater version of the Tata Harrier but there will be a lot of changes made to differentiate these two SUVs from each other. Talking about the aesthetic appeal, so the front design of the new Tata Safari will resemble the Harrier to a great extent, save for some minor tweaking on the bumpers. The side profile will also sport subtle changes and the new Safari will be longer and taller than the Harrier. The new Tata Safari will measure 4,661 mm in length, 1,894 mm in width and 1,766 mm in height. The wheelbase, however, at 2741 mm will remain the same as the Harrier. The Safari will also feature a new design for the alloy wheels and new roof rails. However, the rear design of the Tata Safari will give it its own unique identity with a stepped roof layout.
The all-new upcoming Tata Safari will share its mechanicals with the Tata Harrier. This means that it will be powered by the same BS6-compliant 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine. This diesel motor will churn out 170 PS of maximum power and a whopping 350 Nm of peak torque. The oil-burner will come mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and it will get a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission too. A new turbo petrol motor might also follow at a later stage for the Harrier and Safari. What are your thoughts on the upcoming new Tata Safari?
