Tata Motors is known for its safety-oriented cars in the Indian market. The brand has received 5-star ratings in Global NCAP crash tests for its models like Nexon, Punch and Altroz. However, the Harrier and Safari Facelift, which are based on the same OMEGARC platform, are yet to be tested by the global safety agency Like Crash Test.
Tata Safari Facelift Crash Test
According to a recent rumour, Tata Motors is planning to send both the SUVs for GNCAP testing this year. The company is also said to be making some changes to its production line ahead of the crash tests. This could mean that the existing Harrier and Safari might not meet the 5-star safety standards.
The Harrier and Safari are expected to receive a facelift soon, which could bring some cosmetic and feature updates. The SUVs have been spotted testing in India as well as in South Korea, where Tata has a design studio. The facelifted models could sport new LED headlamps, revised bumpers, new alloy wheels and a redesigned grille. The interiors could also get some tweaks, such as a larger touchscreen infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster and possibly some advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The engine and transmission options are likely to remain unchanged. Both the SUVs are powered by a 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 168 BHP and 350 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
