Tata Motors has recently launched the Red Dark Editions for its popular SUV models Nexon, Harrier, and Safari. The Nexon receives cosmetic upgrades, while the Harrier and Safari Red Dark Editions come with several new features, including ADAS technology and an improved 10.25-inch touchscreen. Tata has also introduced these new features in the regular trims of Harrier and Safari, but the update is accompanied by a price increase. The article will discuss these new features and their impact on the price of Harrier and Safari.
New Features of Tata Harrier and Safari
The new Harman-sourced 10.25-inch touchscreen has replaced the old 8.8-inch touchscreen. This new screen offers better graphics, an updated interface, and new functionalities. The screen displays climate control information, vehicle statistics, and acts as a display for the new 360-degree camera that comes in from the XZ+/XZA+ trims on both SUVs. The new system offers wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and voice commands in six different languages. The Harrier and Safari SUVs have a new 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster that comes in from the XZ/XZA trims.
The most important update is the ADAS suite available only on the newly introduced top-spec XZA+(O) trim. The suite packs in features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), forward collision alert, lane departure warning, lane change assist, and traffic sign recognition. The co-driver seat is now four-way power-adjustable, and the ambient lighting around the sunroof is now available on the Safari. Both SUVs have gained a memory function for their powered driver’s seat.
Tata Harrier and Safari: Variants Rejigged
Tata has discontinued several variants of both Harrier and Safari. The Harrier variants that have been discontinued include XT MT, XMA AT, all XZS/XZAS trims, and special Jet and Kaziranga editions. Tata has added a new XZA+(O) trim with ADAS, which is available in dual-tone, Dark, and Red Dark Editions. Prices for the Harrier have gone up in the range of Rs 5,000-7,000.
For the Safari, Tata has discontinued the XT MT, XMA AT, all Jet, Kaziranga, and Gold Edition models. The Safari has gained a new top-spec XZA+(O) trim with ADAS features that’s available in Adventure, Dark, and Red Dark editions. Prices for the Safari have increased by Rs 14,000-66,000.
Tata Motors has made significant upgrades to the Harrier and Safari SUVs, offering better features and improved performance. The new ADAS technology and 10.25-inch touchscreen are the highlights of the upgrade. While the regular trims of Harrier and Safari have also received these features, the price increase may deter some buyers. Nevertheless, the Harrier and Safari remain attractive options in the SUV segment with their impressive features and reliable performance.
