Today, Tata Motors announced that bookings for the redesigned Tata Safari and Tata Harrier are now open for a nominal fee of Rs 25,000. Bookings can be made on the automaker’s official Tata Motors website or at authorized dealerships.
The four types of the Tata Safari facelift are Smart, Pure, Adventure, and Accomplished. It has a 10.3-inch Harman infotainment system, Harman advanced AudioworX with 13 JBL modes, LED projector headlights, a gesture-controlled motorized tailgate, 19-inch alloy wheels, and a Harman infotainment system.
The four types of the Tata Harrier facelift are Smart, Pure, Adventure, and Fearless. Several market-first technologies are now added to the SUV, including ADAS with adaptive cruise control, seven airbags, smart e-shifter and paddle shifters, and dual-zone automatic temperature control.
The Curvv design idea served as inspiration for the 2023 Tata Safari makeover, which has an eye-catching revamp. Significant updates include a redesigned closed-off grille with embellishments that are colour-coded and LED DRLs that cover the whole front end. The new LED headlights and fog lamps are housed in rectangular casings that are located below the grille, adding to the SUV’s overall muscular and contemporary appearance.
The SUVs’ available powerplant options remain unchanged. They will keep using the 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine, which has a maximum output of 170PS and a maximum torque of 350Nm. Both 6-speed MT and 6-speed AT transmissions are available. Three driving modes—Eco, City, and Sport—as well as three different terrain response settings—Normal, Rough, and Wet—are available for SUVs.
The Mahindra XUV700, MG Hector Plus, and Hyundai Alcazar will all square off against the redesigned Tata Safari. The Mahindra Scorpio-N and MG Hector, among other vehicles, will compete with the Tata Harrier facelift.
“We are thrilled to start taking reservations for the new Harrier and Safari as of today. These legends may now usher in a new age of domination because of our dedication to quality and our reliance on the insightful feedback of our customers, according to the Director of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Shailesh Chandra.
‘Built on the capable OMEGARC, these SUVs retain their tradition of excellent design, cutting-edge features, luxurious interiors, and a sturdy powertrain, only redesigned to improve themselves on every front,’ the company said. The next wave of Tata Motors SUVs is something we are eager to introduce to you, and we are convinced that these two models will accurately reflect both the capabilities and goals of our consumers as well as those of our brand, he continued.
Cosmic Gold, Galactic Sapphire, Stardust Ash, Stellar Frost, Oberon Black, Supernova Copper, and Lunar Slate are just a few of the colour variations available.
You’ll be met with a revamped dashboard with cleaner lines and design elements as soon as you get inside the facelifted Safari. The floating infotainment system is still present, but it now has a bigger 12.3-inch screen that was taken from the Nexon EV. The newly introduced dual-zone temperature control system’s touch-sensitive controls and the streamlined air conditioning vents are just below this screen.
Additional cosmetic improvements for the automatic version include a redesigned 4-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated Tata emblem and a gear lever with Land Rover styling. Additionally altered is the drive mode selection, which now includes a display sandwiched between the buttons. The car still has a number of appealing features, such as ventilated front and second-row seats (available in the 6-seater configuration), connected car technology, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry with push-button start, electronic stability control, a 360-degree camera, and an Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) package.

It’s important to keep in mind that the Safari may cost more than the existing model, which begins at Rs. 15.84 lakh (ex-showroom). The Mahindra XUV700 7-seater versions, MG Hector Plus, Hyundai Alcazar, and the 2023 Tata Safari facelift are likely to be direct competitors in the market.
