Here is a video showcasing the water-wading capabilities of the Tata Safari. Being a tough SUV, a lot of the customers expect such strength and off-roading capabilities from the SUV even though it has a 4×2 drive system. The weather of monsoon brings with it flooded streets in various parts of our country. This video is recorded by a YouTuber who lives in Gurgoan. The water in his locality is well around 1.5-2 feet in depth. The sedans parked around the Safari owner’s house are almost submerged in water up to tyre levels. But Safari, boasting of high ground clearance, is still able to drive well. The owner takes the Safari for a ride around the neighbourhood. The SUV complies without breaking a sweat.
Tata Safari Wading Through Water
As we all know, Safari has always been a capable SUV. The YouTuber records his entire drive around his locality. Although the water is quite deep at certain points, it couldn’t impede the path of Tata Safari. Video also clearly shows the other cars stuck at their parking points. These cars include hatchbacks and sedans. Scenarios like these reflect the reasons for the growing popularity of SUVs in India. Our roads are not the best and a lot of people live in areas just outside the major cities. A tough build SUV is almost a necessity for a whole bunch of people. This video is simply one example of how effective and useful an SUV could be in situations like these.
