The 2021 Tata Safari draws its power from the Fiat-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine that makes out 170PS and 350Nm. The oil burner can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The same powertrain also powers the 5-seater Harrier, Jeep Compass, and MG Hector & Hector Plus SUVs. Unlike the previous generations of Safari, its 2021 iteration misses out on a four-wheel-drivetrain (4WD) system.
In the 7-seater mid-size SUV segment, the 2021 Tata Safari rivals the MG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV500.
