New Delhi: After being introduced in India last week, Tata Motors has finally released the Harrier and Safari facelifts to the public. Both SUVs are much improved over their forerunners in terms of features and overall appearance.
Both the Harrier and the Safari now have sleek-looking linked LED DRLs that stretch from the grille to the bonnet. Below the newly elongated grille and above the aggressively styled bumper sit the vertically stacked split headlamps. Safari comes standard with silver skid plates, whereas Harrier gets black ones.
The SUV’s previous steering wheel is replaced with a new, fancier one with twin spokes and an LED SUV emblem. Central air vents now fit in well with the new aesthetic of the dashboard. Modern SUVs have soft-touch materials on the dashboard, colour inlays, and touch controls in place of conventional buttons.
The SUVs’ lighting systems have been upgraded to include a welcome and farewell function in the headlights and taillights, respectively, and 19-inch alloy wheels. Connected LED taillights have been added to the Harrier and the Safari.

Tata Harrier and Safari facelift price announced
Considering the fact that these are introductory prices and they are yet to announce the complete pricing of the automatic variants, I feel the pricing is on the higher side, specially for the range topping trims

The cabins have also been updated significantly, with several features borrowed from the Tata Curvv prototype.
In comparison to its predecessor, the new car’s infotainment system has a larger 12.3-inch display, while the instrument console has been upgraded to a completely digital, user-configurable display.
Voice-activated dual-zone temperature control, more than 50 connected vehicle functions with iRA 2.0, more than 250 voice commands, emergency and breakdown call support, and Alexa car-to-home connection are just a few of the new Harrier and Safari’s segment-leading features.
Seven airbags, an electronic parking brake with Auto Hold, parking sensors in the front and back, an electronic stability programme, and much more are included in the Harrier and Safari’s standard safety kits. Autonomous Emergency Braking (with pedestrian and bicycle detection), Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go functionality (AT only), Forward Collision Warning, Rear Collision Warning, etc. are all available on the highest-end trims.

Both the Harrier and the Safari are still driven by the 2-litre diesel engine that produces 170 hp and 350 Nm of torque. A 6-speed manual or 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox may be paired with the engine. Both SUVs may be driven in one of three different modes: Eco, City, or Sport, and the traction control can be set to Normal, Rough, or Wet.
On October 6, a token deposit of Rs 25,000 was required to reserve any of the refreshed mid-size SUVs.
The new Tata Harrier’s starting price is Rs 15.49 lakh, with the normal versions costing up to Rs 24.49 lakh upon launch. The new Tata Safari, on the other hand, has starting costs of Rs 16.19 lakh for the base model and up to Rs 25.49 lakh for the top-of-the-line, standard variation.
