The Tata Safari seems to be a favorite among 3D illustrators. Last week we got a taste of the Safari GTS, which was a preview of what the Safari would look like if Tata decided to launch a sportier version of the SUV. Now we get to take the Safari Convertible – A Sexy Convertible SUV !. Designed by Instagram user @ nafi.designs, the Safari Convertible is a 4-door convertible SUV that can carry 4 passengers.
The Safari convertible appears to have taken its inspiration from the recently launched black edition Tata cars with blackened alloy rims and a black grille up front. The remainder unchanged for the most part with the right bonnet, the LED daytime running lights which also serve as turn signals and projector headlights. The side is where you notice the convertible design and the lack of B-pillars. The rear also gets a black treatment compared to the standard model. The convertible appears to use a soft top that would be electrically foldable. Interiors also follow a black theme, unlike the standard model which gets white interiors. The rear receives two captain’s seats to accommodate two passengers. Speaking of the standard Safari, it has features like the 8.8 inch touchscreen infotainment system with iRA that supports voice commands. It also has an electric parking brake, automatic climate control, a 9-speaker JBL system, terrain response modes, a driver’s seat powered by ambient lighting, and more.
Mechanically, the Safari is powered by the same Kyrotec 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine that develops 170hp of peak power and 350Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. It shares its platform and architecture with the Harrier and is 63mm taller and 80mm taller than the Harrier. The Tata Safari is available in 6 or 7 seat configurations like MG Hector Plus, Hyundai Alcazar and the upcoming Mahindra XUV700.
We had recently spotted the Tata Safari being tested, but we don’t know what Tata might cook. Tata could test an AWD powertrain or even a gasoline engine to make up for its lack compared to the competition.
