2021 Tata Safari shares the same diesel mill with its not-so-little brother, the Tata Harrier. Safari is powered by a Kryotec 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine that offers 170 PS of power and 350 Nm of torque. The 1956cc engine is paired to a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The SUV also gets the existing drive modes- Eco, City and Sport- and the ESP terrain modes remain the same too- Normal, Wet and Rough.
Tata Safari is a 7-seater SUV as standard but also offers a 6-seater seating arrangement with 2 captain seats in the middle row. Apart from this, the SUV also offers 9 seating modes in total which include a few like beach mode, weekend mode, jamming mode and family drive mode. The Tata Safari offers a comfortable knee room and headroom in all the 3 rows and the stadium effect seating ensures comfort for all the occupants.
On the inside, the Tata Safari offers an 8.8-inch floating island screen with iRA connected tech, a 9-speaker JBL audio system, ambient lighting, automatic climate control, 3rd-row ac vents, 6-way powered driver seat and much more.
