Tata Motors has revealed most of the juicy details about the all-new Tata Safari. We know that it will be powered by the same 170hp, 2.0-litre, turbo diesel motor as the Harrier. It will also come with the option of a 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission. At the official debut of the Tata Safari, the Indian automaker announced that the Safari will be offered in six variants. Although the list we have seems to be an abridged version. The Tata Safari will come in six variants – XE, XM, XT, XT+, XZ and XZ+. At the official launch, we expect the full extensive list to be revealed. But till then here is an idea of what the Tata Safari will offer in each variant.
The Safari XT+ and XZ+ models offer the same features as the XT and XZ respectively. Currently, the only feature we are aware of which the + models will offer is the large panoramic sunroof. We expect the automatic option to be available from the XM variant onwards. This would mean that it would add more variants — XMA, XTA, XTA+, XZA, XZA+ to the lineup.
The Tata Safari will have to rival the likes of the MG Hector Plus, Toyota Innova Crysta, but the segment will soon see the arrival of the new generation Mahindra XUV500, while Jeep is also working on a three-row SUV based on the Compass. We expect the Tata Safari to be priced between Rs 16 lakh to Rs 22 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
