Sneak Peek of Upcoming Tata Safari Facelift: Spy Shots Reveal Striking New Look

Tata Motors has started testing the updated Safari that will come out later this year, and test mules with camouflage have been seen on our roads again. The upcoming redesign of the Tata Safari will be based on the Harrier EV concept, which was shown at Auto Expo earlier this year. A major redesign of the car’s interior and a new turbo-petrol engine under the hood are also likely.

Tata Safari facelift exterior design updates

With the facelift, the front of the Tata Safari will look very different. It will still have two separate LED headlights, but the upper LED DRL will be a full-width light bar that goes across the hood. The main cluster of headlights in the bumper below is now vertical and has a new trapezoidal shape. This means that the bumper itself has been completely redesigned, and the grille has been given new horizontal slats.

There aren’t any big changes to the side profile, but the Safari facelift can be seen with camouflaged wheels, which could mean that the alloys have a new look. At the back, the SUV will likely get LED taillights that are thinner and better connected, as well as a slightly changed bumper. The facelift for the ICE-powered Harrier, which is also coming later this year, will also include these design changes.

Interior and features of the new Tata Safari

Even though we haven’t seen the inside of the refreshed Safari yet, we expect a big change there as well. Tata has already put the new 10.25-inch touchscreen in the Harrier and Safari with the Red Dark Edition, but we expect a few more changes to the dashboard as well. Maybe the new two-spoke steering wheel that was recently seen on the test mule for the facelifted Nexon will also be added to the facelifted Safari.

Tata Safari engine upgrade

The updated Safari will still be powered by its 2.0-liter turbo-diesel engine, which makes 170hp and 350Nm of torque and is paired with either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. The updated Safari SUV could also get the new 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine, which has 170hp and 280Nm of torque.

Tata Safari facelift production, launch plan

Tata Motors will start making the Safari facelift at its Pimpri plant in September 2023, as we recently reported. The vehicle could hit the market in October 2023, just before Diwali. When it comes out, it will compete with cars like the Mahindra XUV700, which has room for seven people, and the Hyundai Alcazar.
