The new Tata Safari 2021 has been a great addition to the previous line-up of the carmaker as the car recorded some pretty amazing sales at the beginning of its launch and still now when the whole of the industry is suffering from the lockdown sales decline, safari has still managed to make positive MoM sales growth out of it. However, if looking at the bigger picture then the new Tata Safari is basically a 7/6-seater version of the previously selling Tata Harrier SUV. The new Tata Safari test mule was recently spotted with heavy camouflage in Maharashtra at a parking lot.

This Camouflaged Safari didn’t have any exterior change from the ongoing model, so now the question arises where are the changes in this new variant? There are two options the company would be choosing from fist is the AWD variant, which the carmaker talked about in their launch however the final product never came into reality, and the second most obvious answer to it is new engine variant, as we all know all the other rivals of the new Safari comes with two engine options to choose from, like the MG Hector Plus that comes in a variation of a 2.0-litre diesel engine and a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine and the upcoming Hyundai Alcazar which will be available in two powertrains – a 1.5-litre diesel engine and a 2.0-litre NA petrol engine. While looking at the current Safari which only comes in a single 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine producing power up to 168 bhp and max torque up to 350 Nm.

It should also be noted that the new Safari is built on the OMEGARC platform which was shared by the earlier Land Rover Discovery Sport, and this architecture perfectly supports the all-wheel drive as well as the electrified powertrain if the company decides to apply any of these features.
