2021 Tata Safari Gold edition: what’s new?
Most notably, the Safari Gold edition has received a variety of cosmetic changes on the exterior and interior. For starters, it is available in two colour schemes – ‘White Gold’ which pairs the Frost White body colour with a contrast black roof, and ‘Black Gold’ which uses black as a base with a hint of gold that results in a very dark coffee brown colour. Both these versions get subtle gold accents on the grille, headlight surrounds, door handles, roof rails and badging. Completing the exterior looks are the 18-inch Charcoal black alloy wheels, similar to the ones seen on the Safari Adventure Persona.
On the inside, while both versions carry the oyster white colour scheme as on the standard Safari, the Gold Edition takes things a step further. The ‘Safari White Gold’ gets a unique white and gold marble finish to the dashboard that is accompanied by a gold insert below it which runs the width of the cabin. The ‘Safari Black Gold’ on the other hand sports a black and gold marble finish on the dashboard, though, here the full-width lower insert is gloss black instead of gold. Besides this, both versions also get gold accents on the badges, AC vents, instrument cluster and door handles.
Tata motors has also used this opportunity to add some new features to the Safari over and above what is available on the current top-spec XZA+ variant. These new features include diamond quilted-genuine leather seats with ventilation on both first and second rows, wireless charger, air purifier, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. The latter three features will also be offered on the Safari Adventure edition.
Tata will also be hosting a ‘Safari Gold Hit Challenge’ at the 2021 IPL, where every time a batsman hits a six and the ball lands on either the car, or the display podium or the Safari Gold commercial board, the carmaker will contribute an amount of Rs 2 lakh to The Akshaya Patra Foundation for COVID-19 relief.
2021 Tata Safari Gold edition: engine
Powering the new Safari Gold edition will be the same 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine, producing 170hp and 350Nm, as in the standard Safari. The engine is available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox option.
