More Than 1700 Safari SUVs Rolled Out By Tata Motors In A Month
Homegrown carmaker Tata Motors launched the next generation of its Safari SUV on February 22, 2021. In its new avatar, the SUV has succeeded in winning the hearts of Indian car enthusiasts. According to media reports, the company started the delivery of the SUV four days after its launch and delivered 100 units of the Safari 2021 alone in Delhi and NCR in a single day, followed by more than 1700 units dispatched to the dealers within the country. It is also reported that there is a high demand for the top-end XZA+ trim.
Under the hood, the Tata Safari 2021 is empowered with a new 2.0-litre Kryotec turbocharged diesel engine outsourced from the Harrier. This engine generates a power of 170 bhp and a torque of 350Nm. The transmission duties are performed by a six-speed manual gearbox along with an option of a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission system. There are overall 11 versions of the SUV including the Adventure Editions XZ+ and XZA+ respectively.
Both these top-end variants are developed on the Omega platform and carry lots of similarities within them including the engine and various components. In its new looks, the Safari 2021 is bigger and enriched with premium features. This time the company has removed the bench seat for the rear passengers and offered with an option of six-seat and seven-seat layout.
Inside the cabin, it is offered with a Black and Beige interior combination and carries most of its cues from the Harrier. On the exterior front, it receives roof rails, a new tailgate, tweaked taillamps, large rear quarter glass with rear overhand, and a few more.
