2023 Tata Harrier and Safari are expected to make their global debut at the 2023 Auto Expo in January before going on sale
Tata Motors appears to be testing the facelifted iteration of the Harrier and Safari on Indian soil. The test mules have been regularly spied in recent months and now we have a new spy picture showing the rear of both the SUVs. Caught on camera in Bengaluru, the 2023 Tata Harrier and Safari have been spotted together wearing full camouflage.
They are expected to make their global debut at the 2023 Auto Expo in January before going on sale. The facelifted versions will likely come with exterior and interior changes and ADAS based driver assistive and safety technologies are largely possible. Features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert could be made available.
In addition, the interior could gain a bigger touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The equipment list could comprise more in-car connected features, a panoramic sunroof, wireless charging facility, automatic climate control, an updated instrument cluster, steering wheel with mounted controls, powered tailgate, powered driver and front passenger seats, 360-degree camera, etc.
We can also expect new surface trims and materials to be part of the package as well. The exterior of the 2023 Tata Harrier and Safari could feature a redesigned front grille, tweaked headlamps and Daytime Running Lights, updated front bumper, mild updated rear profile, newly designed alloy wheels, etc.
However, the overall proportions will likely remain identical. The speculations surrounding an electrified Harrier have existed for a long time already and we could witness its arrival in the future. Currently, the Harrier five-seater and the Safari three-row SUVs are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine developing a maximum power output of 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak torque.
It is paired with a six-speed manual transmission as standard while a six-speed automatic unit is offered as an an option. The same powertrain will continue without any changes in performance. We do not expect any significant changes on the mechanical front as well.
