Tata is expected to launch the facelifted Harrier and Safari next year and they could be joined by a new electrified model

Tata Motors has consistently finished in the third position in the overall manufacturers’ monthly sales table over the course of this calendar year and it managed to beat Hyundai as well in May 2022. Buoyed by the success of its SUV range and the electric vehicles, the homegrown auto major is planning to bring new models in the next calendar year.

The brand has already been caught testing the facelifted versions of the Tata Harrier and Safari. They are expected to debut sometime in 2023 with exterior and interior revisions along with the addition of ADAS-based driver-assistive and safety features to spice things up in the midsize SUV segment. More specifically, they could get autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, etc.

The exterior could gain a revised front grille, an updated split headlight cluster and new LED Daytime Running Lights, redesigned front bumper, a mildly updated rear end, newly designed alloy wheels, and so on. The existing 2.0-litre four-cylinder Fiat-sourced turbocharged diesel engine producing a maximum power output of 170 PS and 350 Nm of peak torque will likely continue.

As for the transmission options, a six-speed manual transmission and a six-speed torque converter automatic unit could continue to be on offer. The interior is also expected to get a number of changes including an updated dashboard and centre console along with the use of more premium quality surface trims and materials.

The equipment list will likely boast a larger touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, more in-car connective tech, a large panoramic sunroof, a wireless smartphone charger, an automatic climate control system, an updated instrument console, a powered tailgate, a 360-degree camera, and so on.

Besides these SUVs, Tata could introduce a new electric vehicle that could be based on either the Punch or the Altroz towards the end of 2023. It could be positioned above the recently launched Tiago EV to further strengthen its zero-emission lineup. In the coming years, Tata will launch dedicated skateboard platform based EVs.
