The first Tata Safari 2021 with aftermarket alloy wheels is here
Tata Motors has just launched the Safari 2021 in the Indian market. While the nameplate, which has a strong cult following among Indian audiences, has made a comeback, it’s basically a Harrier among them. The 2021 Tata Safari shows enough differences compared to the Harrier. It is given an upright silhouette with a stepped roof and larger 18-inch alloy wheels. However, the design of the alloy wheels remains the same as that of the Harrier. Even so, the alloy wheels can be swapped out via the aftermarket route, and that is exactly what this modified example of the 2021 Tata Safari does.
The Safari in the picture above is getting a set of larger 20-inch rims that have a multi-spoke design. These rims are from the collection of Velocity Tires from Ludhiana, Punjab. With the bigger rims the Safari looks great and the wheel arches are now completely filled with tires. These rims of the brand RPM are equipped with sonar tires. While the larger alloy wheels look cool, they have their own drawbacks. First and foremost is the reduced road comfort. Using low profile tires also increases the likelihood that the wheel will break if a pothole or speed limit is encountered at high speeds.
The Tata Safari 2021 managed to hit the headlines for the warm response from the Indian audience. It has a long list of features, including an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with Ple CarPlay and Android Auto, power-adjustable front seats, panoramic sunroof, 7-inch TFT for the instrument panel, Bose mode and much more .
Speaking of the powertrain: 2021 Safari will be powered by a 4-cylinder turbo-charged diesel engine. It is a cable with a peak power of 170 hp and a maximum torque of 350 Nm. The transmission options here include a 6-speed MT and a 6-speed AT. Unfortunately, Tata Motors only offers the Safari in an FWD layout. With prices starting at 14.69 lakh INR and 21.45 lakh INR, the 2021 Safari competes against the likes of the Mahindra XUV500 and MG Hector Plus.
