TATA Motors is all set to launch the New Tata Safari In India on 26 January, 2021. Some of the details have been leaked on the web before its official launch. According to the information, the new Tata SUV will come with updated alloy wheel design and three different color options - Daytona Grey, Orcus White and Royale Blue. New Safari was showcased in Auto Expo 2020.
The variants offered by Tata Motors will be XE, XM, XT and XZ with two seating configurations -- 6- and 7-seater.
According to the company, the Safari further builds on the legacy of prestige and outstanding performance by combining Tata Motors' award winning 'Impact 2.0' design language with the proven capability of 'OMEGARC', an architecture derived from the renowned 'D8' platform from Land Rover.
"This adaptive architecture allows for further drive train enhancements including all-wheel drive and possibilities of electrification in future," said Tata.
