Tata Motors is set to launch the modified versions of the Harrier and Safari on October 17, 2023. These SUVs have undergone a significant facelift, showcasing a fresh design and incorporating new features. The pricing details will be unveiled on its launch while interested buyers can currently secure their bookings for either of them with a nominal deposit of Rs 25,000.

Updated Design

Both SUVs share a series of similar design elements, featuring an updated grille, streamlined indicators, and vertically arranged split LED headlights similar to that of the Nexon and Nexon EV with an extended LED Daytime Running Light (DRL) strip spanning the width of the bonnet.

 

The rear profile of both SUVs gets a connected LED tail lamp arrangement with a welcome animation. Additionally, the font used for the Safari badge has been changed. The Harrier model features a Z-shaped light signature. Both vehicles also get a modified bumper and a more prominent skid plate.

 

The side profile of both SUVs now features a tidier side profile. The updated Safari gets brand-new 19-inch alloy wheels, while the Harrier is equipped with 18-inch black alloy wheels with aerodynamic inserts.

 

Redesigned Interiors

The redesigned cabins of both SUVs exhibit a similar aesthetic. The dashboard features layered designs with curves at the base. Also, the Harrier offers cabins with varied color schemes based on the exterior shade. These cabins feature a newly designed 4-spoke steering wheel, illuminated with a backlit Tata logo. Furthermore, there’s a bigger 12.3-inch touchscreen system, a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display, and an ambient lighting strip spanning the width of the dashboard.

 

It also gets a redesigned touch-based climate control panel with just two toggles. The central console has been updated to include a new dial for convenient access to drive modes and terrain modes, complete with an integrated display.

 

In terms of color schemes, Tata is set to provide a range of cabin themes, which will vary depending on the chosen variant and exterior color, as seen with the facelifted Nexon and Nexon EV models.

 

New Variants

 

Both SUVs now feature updated variant names, similar to the new Nexon and Nexon EV models. The 2023 Harrier is being offered to customers in four main variants: Smart, Pure, Fearless, and Adventure. Similarly, the Safari facelift now offers four primary variants: Smart, Pure, Adventure, and Accomplished. Both these SUVs come with exclusive dark edition options for exterior colors.

 

No change in Powertrain

 

Both SUVs retain the 2-liter diesel engine, delivering 170PS of power and 350Nm of torque with an option of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The automatic variant comes with paddle shifters and an electronic parking brake. However, it is still expected that Tata will soon introduce its 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine to these facelifted SUVs.

 

Safety

 

In terms of Safety, they can get up to seven airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control (ESC), a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), a 360-degree camera, and a comprehensive suite of ADAS features. The 2023 Harrier and Safari models now add the convenience of adaptive cruise control to the list of ADAS benefits.
