Tata Safari will be launched with 6-seater and 7-seater

Tata Motors is all set to launch the second-gen Safari SUV in India; the new Safari will sit at the top of the brand’s SUV range.

Tata will market the new Safari SUV with not one but two seating configurations; sources tell us that the model will have a six and a seven-seat layout. As far as variants go, expect Tata to launch the Safari in three or four variants initially and as seen on the Harrier, expect more variants to be added/removed according to customer demand down the line. Under the hood, the Safari will come with a 170hp 2.0-liter diesel engine mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox.

The new Tata Safari will face strong competition from the likes of the recently updated MG Hector Plus and the upcoming second-gen Mahindra XUV500.
