Tata Motors has teased the Safari Dark Edition on its social media, revealing that it will arrive on January 17, 2022.

Tata Safari Dark Edition – What’s Special?
Similar to the Harrier, Safari’s Dark Edition will wear a stealthier glossy-black paint, along with blacked-out treatment on the tri-arrow grille, fog lamp housing, lower bumpers, ‘SAFARI’ badging, and ORVMs. It will also get a dark chrome strip around the grille, dark grey alloys, and a ‘Dark’ inscription on the fenders, finishing its all-dark appearance.
Inside the cabin, it will boast a Gunmetal theme with gloss black applique and leatherette upholstery. As for features, the special edition variants will carry forward all the equipment of their corresponding regular trims. However, its range-topping trim could also get an air purifier, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and ventilated seats (standard for 1st row, optional for 2nd row in the 6-seater variants) that are currently exclusive to the Safari Gold Edition.
Powering the Safari Dark Editon will be the same 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, Kryotec turbocharged diesel engine as the regular variants that produce 170PS and 350Nm. It can be had with either a 6-speed manual or a Hyundai-sourced 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
Expected Variants and Price
If reports are to be believed, the Tata Safari Dark Edition will be available with XT+, XTA+, XZ+, and XZA+ variants. They will be demanding a significant premium over their standard counterparts which retail between Rs 18.86 lakh to Rs 19.81 lakh (ex-showroom).
