What Are The Pros And Cons Of Tata Safari Diesel?

The pros or advantages of Tata Safari diesel are:

  • Best-in-class ground clearance of 205mm
  • Respectable mileage numbers for diesel-manual and automatic powertrain
  • Offers ventilated 2nd row captain seats as segment-first feature for a negligible incremental cost over XZ Plus 7-seat variant
  • Automatic transmission is available in all variants but XT and XE variants
  • Choice of getting the fairly loaded XZ variant without the sunroof

The Tata Safari diesel has the following shortcomings or problems:

  • Too many variants (including 4 special editions, each with 6-seat and 7-seat layout) will confuse potential customers
  • No petrol engine option
  • Overpriced XM and XT variants and stripped XE and XM variants; in fact, over the base XE variant, most of the higher trims justify the incremental cost with features
  • No 4-wheel drive option
  • The value-for-money XMS variant doesn’t get several must-have features we expect from a car at this price point

What Is The Price Of Tata Safari Diesel Variants?

The Tata Safari is available in 7 main variants — XE, XM, XMS, XT, XT Plus, XZ and XZ Plus. All of these are available with a manual transmission while the automatic transmission is available in all but XE and XT variants.

The main Safari diesel-manual range costs between Rs. 15.35 lakh and Rs. 21.05 while the diesel-automatic variants start at Rs. 18.10 lakh and top out at Rs. 22.35 lakh.

If you also consider the special editions, then the prices go up to Rs. 22.26 lakh for the Gold 6S diesel-manual and Rs. 23.56 lakh for the Gold 6S diesel-automatic. Automatic transmission itself carries a flat premium of Rs. 1.30 lakh over the comparable manual variant across all variants.

Tata Safari Diesel XE - Base Model Features & Review

The base XE variant of the Tata Safari diesel costs Rs. 15.35 lakh (ex-showroom) and is only available with a manual transmission. The most notable features of the Safari XE are:

  • Halogen projector headlamps
  • All power windows
  • Dual-function DRLs
  • 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers
  • Tilt and telescopic steering
  • Front armrest
  • All disc brakes
  • Split folding 2nd and 3rd row seat backs
  • Reclining second row seat backs
  • Front passenger seat slide lever in 2nd row

For the price and segment of the Safari, the base variant is missing several must-have features like:

  • Touchscreen music system
  • Fog lamps
  • Steering-mounted controls
  • Power mirrors (must-have for a wide car)
  • Height-adjustable driver seat
  • Auto AC
  • Remote central locking

With so many features missing in the base XE variant of a car, we can’t recommend anyone to buy this variant. It’s even more disappointing to see that a car costing Rs. 15.35 lakh (ex-showroom) is missing these features.

Tata Safari Diesel XE vs XM Variant - Price, Feature Comparison

The XM variant costs Rs. 16.80 lakh and it’s Rs. 1.45 lakh more expensive than the base model. With the automatic, the XM costs Rs. 18.10 lakh (ex-showroom) and it’s Rs. 1.30 lakh pricier than the XM diesel-manual.

For the additional cost, it adds the following notable features:

  • Steering-mounted controls
  • Height-adjustable driver seat
  • Remote central locking
  • Drive modes
  • Follow me headlamps
  • Rear washer wiper
  • Power mirrors

While it offers some must-have and some good-to-have features, it still doesn't offer following features we expect from a Rs. 17.0 - 18.0 lakh SUV:

  • Android Auto
  • Apple Carplay
  • Cruise control
  • Alloy wheels
  • Rear armrest
  • Auto AC
  • Keyless entry with push-button start/stop
  • Rear camera
  • Small sunroof
  • Cruise control

Considering the Rs. 1.45 lakh price gap, the list of additional features is too short while also missing several features. It also offers the lowest value for money among all Safari variants. So, we can’t recommend the XM variant either for Safari manual as well as automatic buyers. This is the most affordable Safari variant with an automatic transmission. The XMA is Rs. 1.30 lakh more expensive than the XM diesel-manual powertrain. This price gap between the manual and automatic variants is consistent across all variants of the Safari and it’s a bit higher than the usual Rs. 1.0 lakh we have come to expect for TC, CVT and DCT automatics.

Because of a high-value feature like the sunroof, the XMS variant justifies the price gap over the lower variants. So, it’s worth buying if you don’t want to stretch your budget further.

Tata Safari Diesel XT Plus vs XZ, XZ Plus, XZ Plus 6S Variant - Price, Feature Comparison

The Safari XZ variant costs Rs. 90,000 more over the XT Plus. The XZ variant costs Rs. 20.0 lakh with the manual and Rs. 21.30 lakh with the automatic. The XZ Plus manual and automatic variants cost Rs. 21.05 lakh and Rs. 22.35 lakh, respectively. The XZ Plus is also available with optional 6-seat configuration for an additional Rs. 10,000.

Most of these features are good-to-have. But the asking price is reasonable for these features. It’s worth noting that the XZ variant doesn’t get the sunroof, which is available in the XT Plus variant. So, it’s our top recommendation for buyers who want the upmarket features but without the sunroof.

With the sunroof, it’s an even better value-for-money option. However, we’ll suggest XZ Plus buyers to consider the XZ Plus 6S as it not only offers separate seats for 2nd row occupants but also with the ventilation feature. The XZ Plus 6S more than justifies the Rs. 10,000 price jump over the XZ Plus 7-seater.

Among these, the Jet offers a better value while the Gold offers a poor value for money. Since these variants mostly get good-to-have features, we’ll suggest you make that decision based on your preferences. Here too, the 6-seat version is available for only Rs. 10,000 more. So, if you’re interested in the Safari Dark, Jet, Kaziranga or Gold, then you should consider it with the 6-seat configuration, which also gets 2nd row seat ventilation.

Which Variant Of The Tata Safari Diesel Should You Buy?

Among the Tata Safari’s variants, the base XE and XM variants are not even worth considering. The XMS justifies the cost over the lower variants because of the sunroof, which is a high-value feature. So, it’s suitable for buyers who don’t want to stretch the budget further.

Otherwise, the XT will give a much more balanced ownership experience although it offers a lower value for money. So, you can buy the XT Plus, which balances the value and feature scales.

Between the XZ and XZ Plus variants, the XZ is suitable for buyers who want the upmarket features of the Safari but without the sunroof. The XZ Plus is a good option, but you should instead consider buying it with the 6-seat layout as it also gets 2nd row seat ventilation and offers even better value for money. So, the XZ Plus 6S earns our top recommendation.

The 4 special edition variants mostly get cosmetic upgrades. So you’ll have to decide which one you should buy based on your preference. While all 4 offer a considerably lower value than the XZ Plus 6S, among these too, the 6-seat version is a better choice because of the 2nd row seat ventilation feature for a nominal incremental cost of Rs. 10,000.

The upgrade to XZA is a little expensive as it doesn't get sunroof. But the XZA Plus with the 6-seat layout is our top recommendation. The final 4 special edition variants offer lower value for money than the XZA Plus 6S. We’ll leave it up to you to decide if you should buy either of these 4 special edition variants. Among these too, the upgrade to 6-seat layout is highly recommended.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Tata Safari Diesel?

The Safari is a D-segment SUV with 3-row of seating. It offers optional captain seats in the second row with the XZ Plus variant. Alcazar and Hector Plus are the other 2 cars offering this feature but the 3-row XUV700 doesn’t have this option at all. The Hector Plus also has a 2.0L diesel engine, which makes the same power and torque output with similar mileage figures too, with the manual transmission. So, the Safari beats it with the option of an automatic transmission.

The Tata Safari’s other prime rival is the Mahindra XUV700, which has a 2.2L turbo diesel engine. The XUV700 diesel makes a higher 185PS of power and a considerably higher 420Nm of torque with the manual transmission. With the automatic, this engine makes an ever higher 450Nm of torque. While we don’t know the efficiency numbers of the XUV700 diesel, for a D-segment diesel SUV, it has considerably better performance.

Meanwhile, the Alcazar serves as a slightly affordable alternative to the larger SUVs with far better mileage figures from its smaller 1.5L turbo diesel engine.

What Are The Dimensions Of The Tata Safari?

The Tata Safari is shorter than the Hector Plus and XUV700 but considerably longer than the Alcazar and wider than the XUV700. While the Safari has a segment-best 205mm ground clearance it has the smallest fuel tank in its class, which can carry 10 litres less fuel than the Hector Plus and XUV700 5-seat.

Just like the mileage figures, Mahindra haven’t revealed the ground clearance and boot space numbers either. They could be less than stellar for this segment but until we get official figures, we can’t comment on them. With the information we have right now, it looks like the Safari has the credentials to offer an imposing road presence.
