Recently, Tata Motors had opened the pre-bookings for the Safari SUV in India at Rs 30,000 in India. Wraps on the car have already been dropped. While the 6-seater will get captain seats in the middle row, the seven-seater version will have bench-type seat with adjustable headrests.
From the front, it looks similar to the Harrier SUV, the only exception being a slightly redesigned bumper in the rear. However, there is a considerable change in the roofline and space inside the SUV — the height has been raised and the rear has a more upright position, creating more space. The rear also includes new-look tail-lamps. In terms of length, the Safari is longer and taller than the Harrier by 63mm and 80mm, respectively. To keep the look distinct and different from the Harrier, the Safari will have the option of new colours.
