Tata Safari Car
Safari belongs to Tata's midsize SUV segment. The first generation of Safari was launched in 1998. It was a seven-seater with a foldable third row and spacious interior. Safari stood as a competitor to other brands based on its aggressive pricing.
It uses the same engine as used in the Tata Telcoline i.e a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel 1948 cc which is equipped with indirect injection and KKK turbocharger. It could deliver 92 horsepower. It had a five-speed manual gearbox with a 4WDA option. Relating to the off-road performance of the vehicle, the name Safari was adopted. It was built on Telcoline's TATA X2 platform.
In October 2012, Tata announced the Safari Storme at the 11th Auto Expo. The Storme had more than 100 changes than the Safari Decor. Storme serves the Indian Army and Border Security Force and it also has been exported to Seychelles for the Seychelles Police Force. The Safari second generation uses components of the Land Rovers D8 platform which Tata Cars has named OMEGARC.
