Tata Motors Unveils Revamped Harrier and Safari SUVs

After much anticipation and a series of teasers, Tata Motors has finally unveiled the facelifted versions of its popular Harrier and Safari SUVs. These revamped models sport a host of exciting updates, both inside and out, promising an even more captivating driving experience. Let’s dive into the details of what sets these SUVs apart and what you can expect from them.

A Fresh New Look

Harrier Facelift

The most striking changes in the Harrier facelift can be found in its front fascia. A redesigned bumper with distinct upper and lower sections, separated by a bold black band, instantly grabs your attention. The upper grille is wider and more angular, featuring a full-width LED light bar. The lower section showcases a prominent central air intake, complemented by robust plastic cladding. Both the grille and air intake flaunt contrasting inserts.


Moving to the sides, you’ll notice updated five-spoke alloy wheels, adding a touch of elegance. At the rear, the tail-lamp band has been revamped with new LED internals, giving it a sleeker appearance. The rear bumper now features new protrusions for reflectors, and a glossy black finish adorns the rear skid plate. Unlike the Nexon facelift, which underwent sheet metal changes, the Harrier’s updates are primarily focused on the soft plastic elements.

Interior Overhaul

The interior of the Harrier facelift has undergone a comprehensive transformation. The central touchscreen is now a freestanding unit, available in two sizes: 10.25-inch or 12.3-inch, depending on the trim. The faux wood trim on the dashboard has been replaced with a blend of materials, including a textured top panel, glossy black surfaces, and leatherette padding with contrasting stitching. These elements are beautifully accented by a slim LED ambient light strip.

Other notable interior updates include a touch-based HVAC control panel borrowed from the Nexon, a new four-spoke steering wheel with a backlit Tata logo, and a customizable 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster with navigation. The center console features a shorter gear lever for automatic variants and a new rotary dial for the drive mode selector with a digital display. Higher-spec models come with an electronic parking brake, while lower variants retain the aircraft-style handbrake lever.

Exciting Features

The Harrier facelift comes loaded with exciting features:

  • Welcome and goodbye animations by the LED DRLs
  • Up to 19-inch alloy wheels with aero inserts
  • Dual-zone automatic AC
  • 10-speaker JBL sound system
  • Paddle shifters for automatic variants
  • Rear window sunshades
  • Ventilated and powered front seats with memory function
  • Gesture-controlled powered tailgate
  • Bi-LED projector headlamps
  • 360-degree camera
  • Wireless charger
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • ADAS suite with up to 7 airbags (6 as standard)

Safari Facelift

The Safari facelift, although sharing many design elements with the Harrier, offers subtle differentiators. The grille is broader, and the central air intake features unique inserts. The headlamps are positioned slightly higher and adopt a rectangular shape. Both SUVs maintain the C-shaped headlamp housing and the connected LED light bar treatment.

On the side profile, there’s a fresh design for the 19-inch wheels, exclusive to the Safari. The rear features a new tail-lamp band with a connected LED bar, and the rear bumper boasts a cleaner design with rectangular protrusions at the edges, mirroring the front-end design.

Inside the Safari, you’ll find similarities with the Harrier, with the primary distinction being the finish of the central dashboard panel. Additionally, the Harrier offers a ventilation function for the second-row seats.

Trim Options and Personalization

Tata Motors has introduced new persona-based trim names for both the Harrier and Safari, similar to the new Nexon. The Harrier is available in Smart, Pure, Adventure, and Fearless trims, each offering unique color options, exterior accents, and interior touches. For example, the Harrier features a vibrant yellow paint option with matching interior accents.

The Safari, on the other hand, comes in Smart, Pure, Adventure, and Accomplished trims, with its own set of personalized elements. For a bold look, both the Harrier and Safari continue to offer the Dark Edition treatment across various trims.

Unchanged Powertrain

Mechanically, both the Harrier and Safari facelifts remain consistent with their predecessors. They are equipped with a robust 170hp, 350Nm, 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, powering the front wheels. These SUVs come with Terrain response modes (Normal, Rough & Wet) and multiple drive modes (Eco, City & Sports). Tata Motors claims that the suspension has been retuned to better suit diverse road conditions.

Stay tuned for pricing announcements, which are expected to arrive shortly. As before, the Harrier will continue to compete with formidable rivals like the MG Hector, Mahindra XUV700, and Jeep Compass, while the Safari takes on challengers like the Scorpio N, Hyundai Alcazar, and MG Hector Plus. Get ready for an enhanced driving experience with the new Tata Harrier and Safari facelifts.
