2023 Tata Safari, Harrier Bookings Open: Now Get ADAS, Larger Touchscreen and more

Tata Motors is pulling all strings right to put big numbers with the Harrier and Safari. Well, the cars have been around in the Indian market for quite some time now. However, they fail to put chunky figures on monthly sales charts. The homegrown brand is, in fact, offering huge discounts on these models. Experts have said that they lack on feature list, in comparison to their rivals, and finally, Tata Motors have heard them. Bookings for updated Tata Safari and Harrier and now open for a token amount of Rs 30,000, and these models will come with a host of changes. And what all changes will it get? Well, read on to find out.

RDE-compliant Engine

Although the power plant will remain the same 2.0L FCA-sourced oil burner, which puts out 172 PS of peak power and 350 Nm of max torque, it will now be RDE-compliant. Also, the motor will continue to come with an existing set of gearbox choices – 6-speed MT and 6-speed AT. In the near future, the SUVs could come with a turbo-petrol motor as well. Questions on the availability of AWD systems remain unanswered as of now.

Larger Touchscreen Infotainment Unit

The demand for larger touchscreen was long raised by consumers and critics for the Tata Safari and Harrier. Now, the updated models will feature a 10.25-inch touchscreen unit with wireless connectivity options. As of now a small 8.8-inch screen does duties, which isn’t the best in the business. The new screen will further support wireless Android Auto & Apple CarPlay.

All-digital Instrument Console

Yes, now the Safari and Harrier will come with an all-digital instrument cluster. No needles at all, is what it means. A 7-inch display will sit in the centre, and two backlit displays will be flanked on either side. The new-age display will look modern and will offer a lot more information than the outgoing one. In the outgoing mode, a part-digital system is used with a blue theme, which feels monochromatic.

Increased Safety Features

The SUVs will now come with the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), 360-parking camera, and 6 airbags. These features will further raise the safety quotient of both Safari and Harrier. As standard these SUVs already are equipped with dual-front airbags, reverse parking camera, seat belt warning, ABS with EBD, ESP, traction control system, all disc brakes, brake disc wiping, corner stability control, roll-over mitigation, traction control and more.
