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.

    The Safari has come a really long way!

    The Tata Safari that was launched for the first time back in the year 1998, has come a long, really long way. The newest version of the Safari is based on the Harrier and while many may see it as an extended version of the Harrier, the new safari certainly has some USPs up its sleeve. The new model misses out on ladder frame construction and 4x4 hardware, something which the good old Safari had on offer.

    What's on the inside?

    Possibly the first thing that you will notice about the interiors of the new 2021 Tata Safari is a similar-looking dashboard as the Harrier. Moreover, the new Safari will go on sale with 6 and 7 seater options and the third-row occupants get separate air-conditioning vents along with two USB charging ports. The only downer here is that with all the rows up, the boot space is just 73 litres. 

    09:32 (IST)22 Feb 2021
    Looks do matter!

    Talking of the exteriors, the new 2021 Tata Safari certainly looks handsome and why not, after all, it has striking resemblance with the Harrier which in itself is a good-looking SUV. The front gets a similar treatment, however, the bits that make the Safari stand out are tri-arrow grille along with a silver skid plate and also, the bigger 18-inch alloy wheels. 

    09:28 (IST)22 Feb 2021
    New flagship for Tata Motors!

    The new 2021 Tata Gravitas, errr, Safari will be positioned as the new flagship in the company's product portfolio for India. The three-row SUV that may look like just an extended version of the Harrier has a lot in its hat to prove itself as a worthy contender in its segment.
