All-New Tata Safari 2021 Launch in India Highlights: The new 2021 Tata Safari has been launched in India at an introductory starting price of Rs 14.69 lakh (ex-showroom). The legendary badge has made a comeback, however, the opinions are mixed among the petrolheads in terms of whether or not the new model does justice to the said moniker. After all, the Safari isn’t a small name and hence, the responsibilities on the shoulders of this nameplate are huge. The new 2021 Tata Safari was unveiled on Republic Day and has been positioned as the new flagship SUV in Tata Motors’ product portfolio for India. Many may see it as just the three-row version of the Harrier and the vehicle was earlier slated to come as the Gravitas. Tata Motors, however, say that it was a little name game from their side as they didn’t want the Safari name to be leaked too soon. Well played, Tata Motors, well played! Now keeping all this aside, the Safari did impress us during our first-drive review and while it misses out on some key bits like ladder-frame construction and 4×4 hardware, the new Safari certainly has its own set of USPs which we have listed in our first drive review.
