Tata Motors has launched the Safari Dark Edition at a price tag of ₹19.05 lakh. Just like the other siblings, the Safari Dark Edition will also receive numerous updates on the outside as well as the inside. The Safari Dark Edition will be offered in select few trims as we saw with the Harrier.
Tata Safari Dark Edition: What’s new?
The Safari Dark Edition will be the same design-wise on the outside. However, the chrome elements across the car will now sport a glossy black treatment (Oberon black). These include the grille, headlights, and rear window surrounds, along with the alloy wheels. The only chrome element we can see is the ‘Tata’, ‘Safari’ and the ‘Dark Edition’ badges on the car.
The Safari is offered in Gold and Adventure editions as well. They feature either a white or beige interior layout. Unlike them, the Dark Edition will feature a completely black interior layout.
The Dark Edition is only offered in the XT+, XTA+ XZ+ and XZA+ trims.

These variants offer 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment with JBL audio system, a 7.0-inch TFT colour display, panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging, multi-drive modes (Eco, City & Sport) and more.
These trims are also equipped with a good amount of safety features. Such as all-disc brakes, disc wiping, ABS with EBD, ESP, hill hold assist, hill descent control, perimetric alarm system, reverse parking camera, traction control, tyre pressure monitoring system, ISOFIX child seat mounts and more.
Mechanically there will be no updates on the Safari Dark Edition. The engine will be the same 2.0-litre Kryotec turbo diesel engine producing 170bhp and 350Nm of torque. It comes mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
Tata plans for future
Tata Motors has recently introduced TPEML, a division dedicated entirely to the design and development of EVs in the future. The new division will aim to accelerate the development of new flexible BEV platforms and technologies. The next EV from Tata will be the Tiago EV and followed by the Altroz EV. They are also working on a long-range version of the existing Nexon EV planned to come out this year.
