Tata Motors has offered a sneak peek of the upcoming 2023 Tata Safari facelift, which is set to be accompanied by the Harrier facelift. Official bookings for the 2023 Tata Safari will commence on October 6, 2023. The teaser reveals that the new Safari will showcase design changes and will be available in a striking new Bronze color with black accents.
The 2023 Tata Safari introduces a fresh front fascia, characterized by a revamped grille featuring a close-patterned design with vertical slats finished in bronze. It also features a redesigned front bumper that accommodates a split LED headlamp setup with LED daytime running lights (DRLs) positioned above and the main headlamp setup positioned lower on the bumper. Upon closer inspection, a front parking camera is visible, discreetly placed beneath the Tata logo.
The 2023 Tata Safari facelift introduces several notable changes to its design and features. At the front, it showcases a full-width LED light bar positioned just below the bonnet line, and it also comes equipped with front parking sensors for added convenience. While Tata Motors has yet to unveil the rear and side profiles, it’s anticipated that the updated Safari will sport a refreshed tailgate design and newly styled tail-lights. The SUV is also expected to feature newly designed alloy wheels.
While interior details have not been disclosed by Tata Motors, it is expected that the updated Safari will feature a mildly revised dashboard and a new all-digital instrument cluster. In terms of technology and convenience, the SUV is likely to include a spacious touchscreen infotainment system, a touch-based HVAC control panel, and a twin-spoke steering wheel adorned with an illuminated Tata logo. Additionally, the SUV is expected to offer a range of features such as wireless phone charging, automatic climate control, powered and ventilated front seats, a 360-degree surround camera system, a panoramic sunroof, and more.
One of the standout features of the 2023 Tata Safari will be the inclusion of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) technology. This technology is expected to offer functionalities like autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane assist, blind spot monitoring, and others to enhance safety and convenience for drivers.
Under the hood, the updated model will likely continue to be powered by the new 2.0-liter Kryotec diesel engine, generating 173 PS and 350 Nm of torque. Transmission options are expected to include a 6-speed manual and an automatic torque converter automatic gearbox. Additionally, there are rumors of a new 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2023, making its way into the Tata Safari facelift.
