From what is shown by Motoroids in the below link.

I am certainly not liking the Sumo Grande treatment to the Safari.

Its looking Yuck if this is the actual new Safari, in this case, the older Safari's will surely sell much better than the new one.

Terribly here too, but couldn't resist.
Please, which all were the hatches and SUVs there.Domestic models or international ones?
Could deduce the future models of Tata if we could find which are the benchmarks.

The new Safari will have features such as traction control with vehicle stability system equipped with multi-airbag in a new aerodynamic body. Automobile component industry officials however say the vehicle may still lack a monocoque chassis which is a standard norm for any modern SUV

Things like traction control will be quite an advance for Safari in its segment and at the price, if it is really true. However, we may see an price uprising again in the segment.

There was a news on the notes section while Zigwheels review of the Tata Aria that Tata is going to announce new price positioning for tata safari soon...

This is what i feared. So, it seems that the current Safari won't see any refresh after all. Not in near future, anyways.

Default News Confirmed

Hi Guys

Check out this news piece which talks about the Safari being modded for overseas markets with ABS and Airbags.

Only doubt which is still not clear is whether they've actually fitted the Safari on the hydroformed X2 or not(article is not clear on that count)

The sports utility vehicle (SUV), expected to be launched early next year, will comply with EuroNCAP safety crash norms. EuroNCAP is a voluntary vehicle safety rating system widely accepted in the European Union .

The new Safari will have features such as traction control with vehicle stability system equipped with multi-airbag in a new aerodynamic body.
.........................
The new Safari will borrow a host of technologies from Land Rover SUV. “We are looking at all possible synergies within the group for the new Safari. We will not phase out the current model and it would continue to complement the new vehicle very much like the Sumo does for its next generation Sumo Grande,” Mr Saksena added.

Just came across the Safari pictures in carwale. Though they are photoshopped, I like the effort. With some work in the rear this could do well. I do feel that it looks more like FJ Cruiser than Land Rover

Damn! it looks ugly! whats with those boxy square headlights & taillights?

Tata- if this is the new safari, please retain the current one.

Its an amateurish effort by just sticking the T logo in the front and rear of a land rover discovery 4.

Looks more Land Roverish and Ford F-series look alike.Though good would like to have some indigenous design.
But going by the Motoroid scoop, it's more likely to look like a widened Sumo Grande. Or maybe like the Lexus LX. The present one looks like the LC100, and the next gen(going strictly by the motoroid pic) looks a lot like a mixture of the LX and it's Lexus twin.

Moving the spare wheel beneath the belly.. Would it result in reduced GC and cramped interiors?
