Tata Motors is gearing up to launch the facelifted versions of the Harrier and Safari SUVs soon in the market. The facelifts are expected to be launched in October 2023, with bookings commencing on October 6, 2023. 

Exterior changes

Both the Harrier and Safari facelifts will get major cosmetic updates inside out.

Front fascia: The most noticeable change will be the new front fascia, which will feature a single full-width LED light bar, a revised grille, and a new bumper. The new light bar will give the SUVs a more modern look, while the revised grille and bumper will give them a more aggressive stance.

Side profile: The side profile of the Harrier and Safari facelifts is expected to remain largely unchanged, but the SUVs will get new alloy wheels.

Rear fascia: The rear fascia of the Harrier and Safari facelifts will also get some changes, including new taillights and a slightly tweaked bumper. The new taillights are expected to be sharper in design and may also feature a connecting light bar.

Here are some additional details about the exterior changes:

Harrier: The Harrier facelift is expected to get a more pronounced front grille with new body-colored inserts. The headlights will also be redesigned, with a flared C-shaped housing for the main cluster and a full-width LED daytime running lamp at the top.

Safari: The Safari facelift is also expected to get a new front grille, but it will be slightly different from the Harrier's grille. The Safari will also retain its split headlamp setup, but the design will be more similar to the new Nexon facelift.

The side profile of both SUVs will remain largely unchanged, but there will be new alloy wheel designs on offer. The rear fascia will also get some minor updates, with new taillights and a revised bumper.

Interior changes

Tata Motors has released a teaser of the upcoming Harrier and Safari facelifts, which reveals some of the key interior changes. These include:

All-new digital instrument cluster: The teaser shows a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, which is a significant upgrade over the current semi-digital unit.

Larger central touchscreen infotainment system: The central touchscreen infotainment system has also been enlarged, likely to an 11.4-inch unit. It is expected to come with the latest software and features, including wireless connectivity and support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Backlit Tata logo on the steering wheel: The new steering wheel will have a backlit Tata logo, which adds a touch of premium-ness to the interior.

Ambient lighting strip: The dashboard will get an ambient lighting strip, which will further enhance the cabin ambience.

Updated materials and trims: The Harrier and Safari facelifts are also expected to get updated materials and trims, which will give the interior a more premium and upmarket feel.

Other possible interior changes include:

New touch-based HVAC controls: The Harrier and Safari facelifts could get the new touch-based HVAC controls from the Nexon facelift.

New rotary drive selector: The facelifted SUVs could also get a new rotary drive selector, similar to the one on the Curvv concept.

Redesigned centre console: The centre console could be redesigned with a new gear lever and storage spaces.

Overall, the interior of the Harrier and Safari facelifts is expected to be more premium, feature-rich, and comfortable than the current models.

Safety features 

The upcoming Tata Harrier and Safari facelifts are expected to receive a number of new safety features, including:

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS): These features use radar and cameras to monitor the vehicle's surroundings and warn the driver of potential hazards. Some of the ADAS features that are likely to be offered on the Harrier and Safari facelifts include:

Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Warns the driver if the vehicle is getting too close to the vehicle in front of it.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB): Can automatically apply the brakes to avoid a collision.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW): Warns the driver if the vehicle is drifting out of its lane.

Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM): Warns the driver if there is a vehicle in their blind spot.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA): Warns the driver if there is a vehicle approaching from the rear when reversing.

Automatic Headlamp Beam Control: Automatically switches the headlights from high to low beam and vice versa, depending on the presence of oncoming traffic.

360-degree Surround View Camera: Provides a panoramic view of the vehicle's surroundings, making it easier to park and maneuver in tight spaces.

In addition to these new features, the Harrier and Safari facelifts are expected to retain all of the existing safety features, such as:

6 airbags

ABS with EBD

Electronic Stability Program (ESP)

Hill Hold Control (HHC)

Hill Descent Control (HDC)

Traction Control

ISOFIX child seat anchor points

The official safety features list for the Harrier and Safari facelifts is yet to be announced, but we can expect it to be similar to the list above.

Engine and transmission options

The Harrier and Safari facelifts are expected to continue to be powered by the same 2.0-litre diesel engine that produces 168bhp and 350Nm of torque. This engine will be paired with a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

There are also rumors that Tata Motors is planning to introduce a petrol engine option for the Harrier and Safari facelifts. However, there is no official confirmation from Tata Motors on this yet.

Expected price

The facelifted Harrier and Safari are expected to be priced slightly higher than the current models. The prices are expected to start at around Rs. 15 lakh for the base variants and go up to Rs. 25 lakh for the top-end variants (ex-showroom).
