Re: 2023 Tata Safari Facelift Review

Official Price announcement made. Harrier starts at 15.49 to 24.49 ex-showroom and Safari from 16.19 to 25.49 ex-showroom. I think this is a good price proposition - at par or slightly less than XUV700.

Re: 2023 Tata Safari Facelift Review

The brochure on the Tata motors site says automatic transmission starts from Adventure+.
However, the price reveal from today mentioned that the automatic starts from Pure+.

Anyone has any clue what is the actual starting trim for the automatic variant?

Re: 2023 Tata Safari Facelift Review

Safari has been priced extremely well. It's a lakh more than Harrier but offers so much more including better looks in my opinion. With the safest 5 star rating, genuinely desirable looks and interiors, I find it to be a much better proposition compared to XUV700. In fact unless all wheel drive is a strict requirement, Safari is all the car that you'd ever need. Way to go Tata.

Re: 2023 Tata Safari Facelift Review

Came across this video on YouTube. Since the pre-facelift version was never tested, what rating can we guess it has? The oil filter intrusion issue applies to face-lift version also?

But what is the difference between Pure, Pure + and (o) variants please?
PS: Ignore my query, the new updated brochure online answers my question.

Re: 2023 Tata Safari Facelift Review

Tata has nailed the variant spread with the Safari as compared to the XUV700.

Useful features like 360 degree camera, electronic parking brake with autohold, TPMS, wireless charging are all available in Adventure plus variant which are absent in the AX7 variant without luxury pack. XUV 700 AX5 doesn’t even have a power folding ORVM.

There are many other explained and covered features that were already existing in pre facelift versions - powered boss mode, seats - bit of a misrepresentation there. Having said that, there is a good bit of enhancement over all. Very very desirable car now barring the QC and TAS experience.
I second this, as the owner of the last pre-facelift version of Safari (bought earlier this year), much of the features are already present. I think the most glaring change (apart from the facelift of course) is the EPS - the illuminated and flat bottom steering wheel. The petrol head in me reasons that despite the obvious comfort of an EPS, it is really the HPS that truly gives the connected car feeling and would satisfy the enthusiast within.

Similarly while I am envious of how the facelift is taller, wider & longer (side by side pics tell a tale), I take solace in the fact that despite increased dimensions the bootspace has reduced a bit. The one feature that truly pinches me though is the automatic tail gate opening feature, I so wish it was there earlier.

All in all though good update and definitely enticing enough to pull more people towards it. Tata's service not withstanding, I truly feel that this is one 7-seater that has understood the sentiments of typical Indian buyers and is engineered to perfectly match our needs.

.
I completely agree with you on that powered tailgate bit. The other few I'd miss in no particular order - curtain air bag extending to 3rd row, 3 point seat belt for middle passenger and of course the EPS.

Now on the older HPS vs new EPS, yet again I feel the review and the comments are referring to 2021 or early examples. While I have only driven my July 2023 Safari I don't feel the steering being very hard in parking speeds. That has been last on my botheration list.
Also, at high speeds I have not felt any nervousness - I am talking 90-110 range and I don't intend to drive the car anything above that anywhere. With all the speed cams coming in and variable speed limits at different sections, driving at 100 is also becoming a challenge in India. The HPS is a pure joy on winding roads

The sour point to me around the HPS steering is the high amount of feedback it generates at every undulation, more so at slow speeds. It gets uncomfortable to manage and one just prays that they get to smooth tarmac soon and get rid of all the movements on their wrist.

Above combined with stiff ride on 18 inchers gives in lot of harshness and vibration which is unfitting of a 28 lacs car.

Re: 2023 Tata Safari Facelift Review

Was looking at the brochure, and If I have read it correctly,

Rear Wash Wipe - only in Pure (O) onwards,
Rear Defogger - only in Adventure onwards
Even Rear Fog lamps is available only in the higher variants ?

I would say these should be standard - even if the Rear Fog lamps are not LED.
