All New Tata Safari: Everything you need to Know

Tata Safari
Tata Motors renamed the Gravitas as the Safari, it has a mixed reaction from media and Tata fans. The fact that it is an extended harrier with all similar specs and absence of 4WD,lets down the original Safari name. Let’s leave the name aside and talk about the car.

Design

Safari Tail light
The SUV has similar looks as the Harrier with more chrome in the front but it’s bigger and taller. While it is the extended version of the Harrier it still retains some of the safari elements. The Stepped roof held between the roof rails is one such design element.
