    Tata Safari waiting period creeping up

    The Tata Safari moniker made a comeback as the brand’s flagship SUV last month. While the company officially started accepting bookings on February 4, most dealers had begun accepting orders for the new SUV right after its unveil on Republic Day.

    • Tata Safari bookings were open from January 26, unofficially
    • Price announcement for the Safari took place on February 22
    • Current waiting period stands at 45 days
    • Adventure Persona edition sees decent traction

    2021 Tata Safari: Which variants are in demand?

    The Safari’s customer order book is more or less a mixed bag. Quite a few customers selected higher variants like the XZA+, and some even went for the Adventure Persona special edition, which comes with a unique paint scheme and Earthy Brown leatherette upholstery, on top of the long list of features that the XZA+ already has.

    The XZA+ gets features like Oyster White leatherette upholstery, Xenon HID projector headlamps, Terrain Response Modes, 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a nine-speaker JBL audio system with Amplifier, six airbags, six-way electric adjust driver’s seat, electronic parking brake with auto hold, and a panoramic sunroof, to name a few.

    2021 Tata Safari: Pricing and rivals

    While prices for the Safari start at Rs 14.69 lakh, the “more in-demand” variants, like the XZA+ and the Adventure Persona, are priced at Rs 21.25 lakh and Rs 21.45 lakh, respectively. The Safari is powered by a sole 170hp 2.0-litre diesel engine. There is no petrol engine on offer, and the new Safari misses out on four-wheel-drive gear, too. It, however, is aces on generous cabin room, with good legroom in the second and third row, along with supportive seats. Key rivals to the Safari include the MG Hector Plus and the Mahindra XUV500. Hyundai will introduce the three-row Alcazar SUV in the coming months, and the next-gen Mahindra XUV500 is due as well; both these SUVs will be aimed at the Tata Safari when they hit the showrooms in the coming months.
