The Safari facelift brought about an imminent and radical change, which is now becoming a reality. Both the Tata Safari and Harrier facelifts have undergone significant changes, with production set to begin in the upcoming weeks. The latest images showcase the interiors of the Tata Safari Facelift in all its glory, without any camouflage, allowing us to easily identify the differences from the current model. Tata has taken a giant leap to offer a much richer and more premium interior.
The Upcoming Tata Safari Facelift
The interior of the Tata Safari facelift appears to be the most premium in its segment. Notably, the lower dash now features leatherette cladding with stitching, though it would have been better to extend this to the upper dashboard as well. The overall dashboard layout remains similar to the current model, but it now includes new central air vents and HVAC controls.
The middle panel has a glossy finish with a carbon fiber effect and houses touch-sensitive buttons and metallic toggles. Above it, there is a brand new infotainment screen, which appears to be slightly larger than the 10.25” unit in the Red Dark Edition, possibly around 12 inches. The instrument screen seems to be a single-piece unit, offering a more upscale appearance compared to the current triple-screen setup.
The new Tata Safari also boasts a redesigned steering wheel following Tata’s latest design language. The steering wheel includes toggles for audio and cruise control, and the center likely features an illuminated Tata logo. Previous spy shots revealed Tri-Arrow perforations on the door pad.
In terms of the center console, the layout is similar to the current model, but the gear selector is now smaller and more sophisticated. There is a larger dial ahead of it, possibly used for selecting different ESP modes and potentially AWD modes. It is hoped that Tata has made improvements to rear seat entertainment and ventilation as well.
Under the hood, the Tata Safari facelift is expected to feature Tata’s new 1.5L turbo petrol engine with 170 PS and 250 Nm, paired with a new DCT gearbox. The 2.0L Stellantis-sourced diesel engine will likely remain unchanged, delivering 170 PS and 350 Nm of torque with either a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed TC.
