All-New Tata Safari (Gravitas) Launched

Jan 16, 2016
New Tata Safari unveiled


Tata Motors has finally unveiled the new Safari and this will be positioned as the new flagship in the carmaker's portfolio. As we already know, the Safari is essentially the six or seven-seater version of the Harrier. It was earlier last year at the Auto Expo when we got the first glimpse of the Safari (named Gravitas). It was showcased at the Tata Buzzard for the first time in 2019 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Thanks @Nairrk for sharing. Looking like third row roominess seating comfort , non claustrphobic cabin, three mode ESP going to be its USP over competition.

Me feels the name of the beast should have been suffixed or prefixed to differentiate it from its ancestors like Safari 3G /5G or NexSafari.

Mixed opinion on the name Safari but like everything that has a history, this new refreshing approach for the Safari brand name is definitely interesting. Thankfully, the car looks very appealing.

I spotted a White Safari today @3:35PM near Golf Course crossing near Noida Sector 37 main road traffic signal & metro station. It had red plates with MH number. The White color made the design look quite plain. Maybe in darker shades the design comes out much better. However, the car has a great road presence I must say. I didn't click the pic as I thought it was a showroom display car. The side profile is a looker[cheers]

I was coming from Thane. Saw this beast parked on side on highway.
I stopped and had a small chat with driver. Got a chance to see the New safari inside out. It was captain seat top model just came from some advt or promotion.
It is a total B E A S T!! [thumbswink]
Looks far better than harrier in every side, even though its extended Harrier.
Loved the tri Arrow grille. Quality is Top Notch [cheers]

It has stance & Blue shade is [clap]. Tata did a great job for sure.

harrier vs. Safari


TATA Safari


Base variant features are bare basic, hope TATA prices it well. White interiors are more dust magnet in our country. Dimensions are different (Extended Harrier). Same Headlights and tail lights,same engine, same fuel tank, etc. It should have at least got a 60 L fuel tank like the earlier TATA Hexa for that extra mile crunching and lack of colour options Blue colour looks nice (only white and grey as other options). Even though it runs on 18 inchers it should have got a 19 inchers to give that big beefy look when compared to a Harrier. Keeping in mind that new Gen Mahindra Xuv 500 is about to launch TATA should have taken this test more seriously.
