2023 Tata Harrier and Safari Facelift
Tata Motors has tried to distinguish the two SUVs even though these are essentially the same. At the front, the Harrier gets a dual grille area divided by a horizontal black panel with stylish inserts, a full-width LED DRL bar, a rugged skid plate and vertically oriented bi-projector LED headlamps on the bumpers. On the other hand, the Safari also has these features but with slight distinctions. The most prominent difference lies in the fact that it gets the radiator grille with graphic inserts above the bumper while the lower section gets a much sportier skid plate with just a black grille element. The designs of the alloy wheels are also different.

Interior and Features
The interior of these SUVs is modern and tech-savvy as well. Tata Motors is offering something really interesting. Depending on the trim you purchase, there will be different colour combinations for the upholstery, cabin and dashboard. Hence, there are tons of new bits including a textured dashboard, a colossal 12.3-inch digital infotainment system, a 10.25-inch customizable driver’s instrument cluster, wireless charging, drive and terrain modes, ADAS, 360-degree camera, 10-speaker premium JBL sound system, 6-seat arrangement in Safari, powered tailgate, powered and ventilated front seats with memory function, navigation and more. Essentially, the top variants of both these SUVs are full of modern amenities.
Both the Harrier and Safari keep their previous models’ powertrains intact. Consequently, the SUVs continue to feature the well-known 2.0-litre Kryotec turbo diesel engine, delivering 170 PS of power and 350 Nm of peak torque. This engine can be paired with either a 6-speed manual or a torque converter automatic transmission. Additionally, there are terrain response and drive modes available. It’s worth noting that a turbo petrol engine option may become available in the future, with pricing details to be disclosed at the launch. In the market, the Harrier and Safari compete with rivals such as the Mahindra XUV700, MG Hector, Hector Plus, Hyundai Alcazar and Jeep Compass.
