Facelifted Tata Safari: Spy Shots Reveal New Details

Spy shots of the facelifted Tata Safari have emerged, showcasing two test mules draped in heavy camouflage. These images provide a closer look at the upcoming SUV, highlighting some key changes that have been made.

Exterior Updates

The spy shots reveal two different wheel designs on the test mules. One of them retains the existing 18-inch wheels found on the current model, while the other showcases a fresh, intricate 5-spoke design with 19-inch wheels. This will be the first time the Safari nameplate will feature 19-inch wheels.

The facelifted Safari is expected to receive vertically housed LED headlights with connected LED DRLs, giving it a modern and distinctive look. The side profile of the SUV is likely to remain largely unchanged, except for the updated alloy wheel design. At the rear, slimmer connected LED lights and a refreshed bumper can be observed. Additionally, the facelifted Safari will be equipped with dynamic turn indicators, a feature commonly found in newer cars.

Interior and Features

Based on previous updates, it is expected that the interior upgrades introduced in the recent Safari model will carry over to the facelifted version. These include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 7-inch digital driver’s display. Tata has consistently added new features to the Safari to compete with rivals like the Mahindra XUV700. Therefore, it is likely that the facelifted Safari will come with additional headline features.

The updated Safari is expected to offer features such as a 360-degree camera, wireless phone charging, a panoramic sunroof, and ventilated seats. In terms of safety, it should include up to six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), ISOFIX child seat anchorages, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Engine Options

The facelifted Tata Safari will likely retain the current 2.0-litre diesel engine, which produces 170PS of power and 350Nm of torque. This engine will be available with a choice of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, Tata will introduce a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine that was unveiled at the 2023 Auto Expo. This engine generates 170PS of power and 280Nm of torque.

Launch and Pricing

The launch of the facelifted Safari is expected to take place early next year. Prices for the updated model are anticipated to start from Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom). The Safari will continue to compete with rivals such as the Hyundai Alcazar, Mahindra XUV700, and MG Hector Plus.
