Tata Safari Review: Your Ultimate SUV Adventure Partner

Picture this: You’re standing in your driveway, keys in hand, staring at the 2024 Tata Safari. This isn’t just any SUV; this is the top model Accomplished+ Dark, the superhero of the Tata family. This car screams “I’m here to conquer” with a design that could make even a rock blush. Let’s dive into this beast’s world with a sprinkle of adventure and a pinch of tech.

The Legend Returns

First things first, the Safari is not new to the scene. Launched back in 1998, it’s been the go-to name for Indian SUVs. Fast forward to 2023, and here we are with the third-generation facelift, looking slicker than ever. This baby comes in diesel only, starting at a cool INR 16.19 lakhs, and if you want to go all out, the top model will set you back INR 27.34 lakhs. Chump change for something this majestic, right?

A Seat for Everyone

Got a big family or just a lot of friends? No problem. The Safari comes in both 6 and 7-seater versions. If you’re feeling more minimalist, there’s the 5-seater Harrier, starting at INR 15.49 lakhs. Designed by Martin Uhlarik, the genius behind the Nexon and Harrier, this SUV is like a rolling piece of art. Plus, Tata gives you a 3-year, 1 lakh km warranty to keep those worries at bay.

Safety First, Adventure Second

Built on the Omega Arc steel platform, borrowed from Land Rover’s D8 platform, the Safari is as safe as a tank with 5-star ratings from Global and Bharat NCAP. This platform also supports the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque, so you know it’s got pedigree. And with the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) featuring 11 mind-boggling functions, it’s practically a robotic chauffeur.

Drive Modes Galore

Eco, City, Sport – these aren’t just modes, they’re your new best friends. And if the road gets rough (or wet), the Terrain Response Modes – Normal, Rough, and Wet – have got your back. It’s like having a multi-tool for your driving experience.

The Beauty and the Beast

From the air curtain to the front parking sensors, the Safari is decked out. The new precision-crafted parametric grill and connected LED DRLs make it look like it’s straight out of a sci-fi movie. Sequential turn indicators? Check. Automatic bi-LED projector headlamps with high beam assist and follow-me-home function? Double check. It’s like having a nightclub on wheels.

A Look That Kills

With a 4.7-meter length, 1.9-meter width, and 1.8-meter height, the Safari is massive. It’s got a ground clearance of 205 mm and a kerb weight of 1800 kg. It’s like a sumo wrestler that went to fashion school. And those 19-inch black alloy wheels with aero inserts are inspired by the Sierra concept, just in case you wanted to flaunt a bit. It also gets 245/55 R18 103V MRF Wanderer Ecotred radial tubeless tyres.

Colors and Comfort

Oberon Black, White, Grey, Silver, Copper, Gold, Blue – pick your poison. And if you’re feeling fancy, there’s a dual-tone option with a black roof. Inside, the upholstery is Blackstone Benecke Kaliko leatherette, with options for brown, white, and fabric. The ventilated, reclining 2nd-row seats and 50/50 split-folding 3rd-row seats make sure everyone rides in luxury.

Tech Heaven

The Safari is a tech junkie’s dream. The 12.3-inch Harman touchscreen infotainment supports wireless Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, WiFi, and over 250 native voice commands. Not to mention, Alexa voice command for car-to-home functionality. The driver gets a 10.25-inch digital TFT instrument cluster, and there’s a 10-speaker JBL sound system to keep the beats rolling.

Power and Performance

Under the hood, the 1956 cc, inline-4 cylinder, turbocharged, BS6 Phase 2 engine roars with 167 horsepower and 350 Nm torque. Whether you choose the 6-speed automatic or manual transmission, this beast promises an average of 14 km/l for the automatic and 16 km/l for the manual. It’s the same engine used in several big names like the Jeep Compass, MG Hector, and even the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. So, you know it’s got some serious vroom.

A Safe Haven

Safety is Tata’s middle name. With 7 airbags, off-road ABS, EBD, Hill Hold Control, Traction Control, Roll Over Mitigation, Corner Stability Control, Brake Disc Wiping, Rear Parking Sensors, panic brake alert, after impact braking, Perimetric Alarm System, seatbelt reminder, remote central locking, Hill Descent Control, ISOFIX child seat mounting and a plethora of other features, you can drive knowing you’re in good hands. The Safari even has a Gesture Controlled Powered Tailgate and a 360-degree surround-view camera to make parking a breeze.

Tata Safari is so stable, you’d think it’s been practicing yoga for years! With 17 functionalities packed into its Advanced Electronic Stability Program, this SUV could probably walk a tightrope if it had to. And for those times when the driver might be practicing their best impression of a sleeping panda, there’s a Driver Doze Off Alert. Tata Safari has got your back, or should we say, your nap?

Under the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System), the Safari transforms into your very own superhero sidekick. Think of Autonomous Emergency Braking as your invisible brake pedal-pushing buddy. Forward Collision Warning is like having a backseat driver with superpowers. Rear Collision Warning? It’s your car’s way of saying, “Hey, watch your rear!” And let’s not forget the other heroic features: rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot detection, traffic sign recognition, door open alert, lane departure warning, and lane change alert. It’s basically an ensemble cast of driving guardians.

Imagine having a genie in a bottle, but instead, it’s in your smartphone app. With 1 year of free iRA 2.0 connected car technology, you can do magical things like turning your car’s lights on/off remotely, locking/unlocking it from anywhere, and even honking the horn just to mess with your friends. Feeling like a spy? Check your vehicle security, track live vehicle diagnostics, and set geo-fencing and time fencing boundaries. Get over-the-air updates, monitor live car location, receive speed alerts, and even immobilize your car remotely if you need to pull a James Bond. With telematics ECU updates and a host of other features, the Tata Safari’s got more tricks than a magician at a kids’ party.

Final Verdict

The 2023 Tata Safari is not just an SUV; it’s a statement. It’s for those who want to ride in style, comfort, and safety while turning heads. Whether you’re conquering city roads or off-road trails, this car has got your back. So, if you’re looking for a ride that combines power, luxury, and tech, the Safari is calling your name. Just be ready to answer with a resounding “Yes, please!”
