Tata Motors is extensively testing its new lineup of SUVs, including the Facelifted Harrier, Safari, and Nexon. Spy shots of the 2023 Tata Harrier have been captured, revealing some details despite the full camouflage.


The rear taillights of the Harrier have been redesigned with linear LED bars and a connected treatment similar to the concept versions showcased at the Auto Expo 2023. The taillights will also feature sequential turn indicators, keeping the Harrier in line with competitors like the Mahindra XUV700 and Hector.

The rear bumpers of the Harrier are expected to receive updates in terms of styling and a more off-road-oriented appearance. Moving to the side profile of the new Safari, it retains a similar overall shape as the current generation but will sport 19-inch alloys, providing a more rugged look. The design of the alloys is reminiscent of the pre-facelifted Jeep Compass Limited Option, featuring a five-spoke finish that splits into two smaller spokes.



What changes?

The front of the new Safari can be observed in the spy shots, showcasing changes such as thinner connected taillights, smaller grille presence, and vertically arranged high beam and wide beam lights.

Regarding powertrain, the new Tata Safari is expected to offer the previously available 2.0L multi-jet diesel engine sourced from Fiat Chrysler Automotive, also found in the MG Hector and Jeep Compass. With some minor tuning, the engine might generate 400 Nm of torque. Additionally, Tata’s newly developed 1.5L turbocharged direct injection engine will likely be offered, producing approximately 170 horsepower.

As for the launch timeline, the new Tata SUVs are expected to be launched by the end of 2023. Considering the competition has already introduced facelifts of their SUVs, Tata is likely to release its updated lineup in the third quarter of 2023. Prices for the new Tata SUVs are anticipated to start around ₹14 lakhs.


Here are some of the key details about the new Tata Safari:

  • New connected taillights with sequential turn indicators
  • 19-inch alloy wheels
  • New front-end styling with a smaller grille and vertical headlights
  • 2.0L multi-jet diesel engine or 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine
  • Launch expected in Q3 2023, starting at ₹ 14 lakhs


We are particularly interested in the new turbocharged petrol engine. It will be interesting to see how it performs in the Safari. We are also curious how the new Safari compares to the Mahindra XUV700 and Hector, two of its main rivals.
