Having showcased the Harrier and Safari ADAS versions at the Auto Expo 2023, Tata Motors has now opened bookings for the updated models. Customers can book either SUVs for a token of Rs. 30,000. The 2023 Tata Safari and Harrier not only get ADAS but a host of other feature upgrades including a digital instrument console and a larger infotainment screen. Both models, the 2023 Tata Harrier & Safari are set to arrive in March this year.
The big upgrade on the 2023 Tata Harrier and Safari is the addition of the advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) that will bring features like forward and rear collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, high beam assist, blind spot and rear cross traffic monitoring, door open alert and lane departure warning. That said, features like adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist and Smart pilot (steering assist) have been given a miss.
The updated 2023 Tata Harrier & Safari also come with a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system that replaces the archaic 8-inch unit seen on the current version. It will come equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, iRA connected car tech as well as voice command that supports over 200 voice commands in six languages.
The new unit will also bring a 360-degree camera, electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function, ventilated front seats, auto headlamps and wipers and an air purifier. The Safari also gets mood lighting around the panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats in the second row, and the option to adjust the front passenger seat from the second row.
A full digital display will also replace the semi-digital unit and will come with turn-by-turn navigation. Both SUVs will also get six airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, electronic parking brake, auto hold, all disc brakes, cornering lights and more.
Engine options on the new 2023 Tata Harrier & Safari I’ll include the 2.0-litre diesel motor updated to the latest BS6 Stage 2 emission norms. The motor develops 170PS and 350Nm of peak torque, paired with a 6-speed manual and an automatic. Prices will see healthy jump with the latest version given the bulk of changes. The models though are now better equipped to take on rivals like the MG Hector and Hector Plus, and Mahindra XUV700.
