    Only problem in the safari is its infotainment system, the screen has got a very slow response and it doesn't suit the car 😕😕 it should match the fluidity of seltos and creta

  • JAY_beta3

    3rd row seats 👍

    I hope this car is going to bring a lot of sales for tata with it's 6 & 7 seater capacity bcoz harrier with a great suv look & so good features has entered into the market but, the sales are not as expected due to overprice for a 5 seater car. But when it comes to safari new addition it's coming with more amount of space & feel good features with almost same pricing of the harrier. So, it's really a good marketing by tata 👏👏👏

    Tata has spoilt the taste of Safari. Old design was much appropriated and practical. Somethings mustn't be touched. 👎👎👎👎👎👎

    Can you make a comparison between Tata Safari and Toyota Innvova? They seem to do the same job for me but want to know which car will be a better choice to live with over an ownership period of 10 years

    Just thinking that what maximum exchange price can I get for my 1 year old I20 active... At that time, I was not able to buy safari, now I can by the grace of God. Always seen Safari as my dream car, hopefully it will be mine within next 2 months. Great review dear❤️❤️❤️

    Isn't this a bit overhyped and overpointed topic......its just a swollen harrier....whats the need of so much hype of this safari....adjusting 2 extra seats at the back of harrier....thats all.....Instead i find the hexa more better designed and special than this swollen harrier

  • Jesse 11

    Disappointing they should’ve made safari a different vehicle based on a different design, this is just harrier 7 seater

  • Dinto Louis

    Will there be takers for a "5 captain seat version of safari" [captain seat in the middle of the third row] or a "4 captain seat" version of harrier..? Comfortable seating given priority over numbers..

    Everything is good but the steering is heavy & will it be able to handle full passengers load turning corners at high speed which can be scary

    Badge in steering should be updated...else it gives the feel of driving a commercial vehicle taking away all the feel of driving an SUV... irrespective of its advancements....😖

    I will buy it only if they can change their logo


    so you could pretty much make this the ultimate camping car (in the 7 seater variant) by folding both the 3rd and 2nd row seats

    IMO, Tata should have not used the Safari brand name for this vehicle. It does not look like the original's successor nor does it offer the same features of the original Safari. I feel the original Safari had a cult following and the fans would have been looking forward to a proper off roader in its latest avatar. This one may be a great vehicle on its own, but the name Safari carries some heritage and emotion which needs to be lived up to. I guess what I am trying to say is if you are going to introduce a successor to a legendary car you need to make sure it can fill those shoes and stir up those same emotions. I think Bajaj made the same mistake by over using Pulsar brand on so many of their bikes. Mahindra's Scorpio has been a successful car as they have stuck with the same boxy shape and offered improvements in the newer generations. That's my 2 cents.

  • Rajaprabu

    New I just like but old is gold ever

    XT + is an un necessary addition. Rather TATA should discontinue it and name it XTA (XT with automatic transmission) Sunroof in India is a useless accessory and all we need is an automatic transmission with good features. XT has it all but it does not have AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. People may refrain from buying SAFARI at this price point as the mid variant does not have AT. TATA... Are you listening?

    Safari means Bold , stunning , aggressive , tough , this new safari looks like small, style, and normal suv . Lights would have designed better . Instead of triangle lights ,tata would have considered something like new pajero head light. Convey this to TATA motors.

    Premium product plus very capable doesn't actually need 4wd or Rwd, I have seen tata nexon dune bashing better than other 4wd cars in Rajasthan with its traction control and good ground clearances.

    Automatic top model driving seat can't be adjusted to move more fwd as same has auto function for adjustment. People with height less than 5.7 will not be comfortable driving it.

    I've watched basically every manufacture on sale in the states. Guess I'll check out what India has been up. I really like this model. Captain's chairs + theater seating is an awesome combo.

    A top end variant would cost a whopping 25 lacs...!!! I wish TATA focused on gaining market share more than profit. If they gave Harrier within 15 lacs and Safari within 20 Lacs on road price story could have been different.
