We have constantly been updating you on the upcoming additions that the Tata SUV twins have got now. We are talking about the Red Dark edition which has upped the ante with exciting new features and added safety tech. However, that’s not it because apart from these additions, Tata has plans to bring the new Harrier and Safari facelift. Surely it has become evident that Tata wants to stay second to none in terms of their flagship SUVs. So, in today’s article, we will discuss the differences between these updates.
Tata Harrier and Safari – Red Dark Edition
First, let’s talk about the most recently launched edition of which the bookings have started. The Red Dark edition has pioneered new features and safety into the Harrier and Safari. If we talk about the body design, no changes are made to the cars however cosmetic treatments like red dark badging on the grille, red brake callipers, and 18-inch black alloy wheels are seen. After getting inside the car, you are welcomed with the Carnelian red quilted leather seats, red grab handles, unique grey trim as well as piano black additions on the dashboard.
Tata had showcase the Harrier and Safari Red Dark editions at the Auto Expo 2023. However, the Nexon was absent as it has only got the cosmetic red-themed accents but no extra features as such. So, let’s talk about the flagship models – Harrier and Safari. The cars get a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch infotainment system, a 6-way electrically adjustable driver seat with memory, a 360-degree camera, ADAS, ESP with 17 functionalities and many more.
If you thought the Red Dark edition was a slew of upgrades, let’s unravel the facelift update. The model has been spotted in testing by Rushlane wherein we can identify that it’s the Safari facelift. While the Red Dark edition has bumped up the feature list so the facelift model would be more inclined towards the design update. The front of the spotted car has taken iterations from the Harrier EV. So, we could spot the updated grille, new bumpers and tweaked air dam. Coming to the sides, the overall silhouette of the car is the same but the car sits on newly designed alloys. The rear is also largely identical however we are expecting it to get the full-width LED taillamp on the update.
What about the engine? There are high chances that the facelift update could be imbibed with the 1.5-litre turbo petrol TGDi engine. This mill which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2023 is engineered to produce 168bhp and 280Nm of torque. This addition could make the facelift more accessible due to the economical costs of the petrol engine.
