2021 Tata Safari launched at Rs 14.69 lakh
Earlier today, Tata Motors announced that the prices of the 2021 Tata Safari will range from Rs 14.69 lakh for the base XE variant and will go up to Rs 21.45 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), for the fully loaded and rugged Adventure Persona variant. The starting price is a premium of Rs 70,000 over the Harrier’s base model and will be offered in a total of seven variants — XE, XM, XT, XT+, XZ, XZ+ and the ZX+ Adventure Persona Edition.
The XE variant is the entry level to the range, and gets basic features but includes the likes of disc brakes, 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome styling elements, projector headlamps and dual airbags. This is followed by the XM, XT, XT+, XZ and XZ+, getting progressively more loaded. The automatic transmission is only available on the XM, XZ and XZ+. Meanwhile, all variants except the XZ+ get the seven seat layout – the XZ+ is the only one that you can have with captain seats.
Tata has also announced the Adventure Persona, essentially based on the ZX+ with a special paint scheme and unique interior trims. On the outside, the Adventure Persona is offered in a 'Tropical Mist' paint scheme with a blacked out grille, grey colour 18-inch alloys and black badging and styling details all around. On the inside, the interiors are brown (as opposed to white on the other variants) and it gets an option of captain seats too. This variant is priced at a premium over the standard XZ+ variant.
The Tata Safari is powered by the same 2-litre diesel engine found in the Harrier and delivers 168bhp and 350Nm of torque. Like the Harrier, it gets an option of a six-speed manual and six-speed torque converter automatic transmissions. The driving modes are the same too — Sport and Eco along with ESP terrain response modes like Normal, Rough and Wet.
With a difference of just Rs 70,000 to Rs 1 lakh between the Harrier and the Safari, the latter seems like good value for money as it offers more space and can seat more people, and comes with minor refinements over the Harrier. Stay tuned for more information and a detailed break-down of the 2021 Safari and its variants.
