The Indian market has enthusiastically received the new look and feel of the Tata Safari. Tata Safari’s practice at the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) for security demonstration during the 52nd CISF Raising Day parade is becoming a new sensation on social media as people book and wait for the new Safari. The parade was held on March 10, 2021, in Ghaziabad.
Five new Tata Safaris were used as part of the demonstration explaining the preparation of VIP security. The convoy includes 360-Diploma Monitoring and Defense for VIP Auto, and the drivers are Unique Protection Group (SSG) agents, skilled in the art of avoidable driving. Several mock drills were there with the vehicle that how a VIP in the car is secured during various dangerous situations.
The new generation of the Tata Safari was launched last month on Republic day. The new Safari is getting better bookings, and the vehicle is available in diesel automatic and manual variants; the starting price ranges from Rs 14.69 lakh to Rs 21.45 lakh. The booking of the Safari started on February 4. When it was launched in 1998, the Tata Safari was a wild beauty that was foreign to the Indian market. The Safari, one of Tata’s first SUVs, later became a symbol of strength in the Indian automotive world. The SUV has also made its presence in the Indian Army. Although it withdrew from the market, it was a vehicle that won the hearts of motorists. Tata Motors expects the popularity of the Safari name to be an asset to the new SUV. The new Safari is a larger variant of the Tata Harrier. Designed according to the Impact 2.0 design philosophy, the vehicle is 70mm longer than the Harrier. The vehicle’s other feature includes an 8.8-inch floating infotainment system; three spoke steering wheel, nine-speaker JBL music system, electric parking brake, and a panoramic sunroof. The Safari is available in six and seven-seater variants. Like the Harrier, the two-litre Kryotec diesel engine powers the Safari. The transmission is a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic gearbox combined with an engine capable of producing up to 168 bhp and 350 Nm of torque.
