  • Updated Tata Harrier and Safari Dark editions’ market launch by late March.

  • Exterior cosmetic addition will be limited to red accents on grille and brake callipers.

  • Cabin gets a new Carnelian Red-Steel Black theme.

  • Will feature ADAS and a bigger 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen.

  • Feature additions further include a 360-degree camera, digital instrument cluster and more.

  • The update should come at a premium over the existing model’s asking price.

Tata had one of the busiest Auto Expos with a host of showcases ranging from EV concepts to cleaner fuel alternatives. Concepts like the Sierra and Curvv lured all the eyeballs and rightfully so, but along the way stole the thunder from two existing models that were also on showcase – the updated Dark editions of the Harrier and Safari, which sported a new moniker: Red Dark edition. Nevertheless, the two have now been confirmed for market launch by late March and pack a host of additional features that up the ante on the premium quota of both SUVs.

What to expect?

The units showcased at the show sported no design revisions, although they did feature a red insert on the grille and red brake callipers. Don’t mistake it for a facelift, because it isn’t one, rather it is an update for the Dark Editions of the two SUVs. Where the real change occurs is inside the SUVs’ cabin. 

First and the most prominent thing is the red leatherette upholstery for the seats and grab handles that contrast the Steel Black dashboard theme. It's only when you shift your focus from the seats that you’ll notice that there’s a larger 10.25-inch infotainment screen resting in the middle. The new touchscreen will be accompanied by a fully digital seven-inch driver’s display, which will replace the semi-digital display on the current vehicle. 

Things that aren’t as striking as the loud red upholstery are the side cameras mounted in the ORVMs and the front camera in the grille. These will be used for the functionality of the 360-degree camera – something that’s missing from the existing Harrier and Safari Dark edition’s features suite. It’ll also get a six-way powered driver seat with memory function. 

Our previous papped images have revealed that Tata has been experimenting with ADAS for the Harrier and Safari, which will now bear fruit through this update. The displayed models housed a radar integrated into the front bumper along with a windshield-mounted camera. The ADAS suite will comprise auto-emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot detection, rear collision warning, high beam assist and lane-keep assist, but no adaptive cruise control. 

Both Tata SUVs will continue with their existing powertrain, which is a 170PS, 2-litre turbo-diesel engine paired to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. However, both are expected to receive a turbo-petrol option probably in 2024, more deets on which can be found here.

The Red Dark edition for the Harrier and Safari is likely to be launched by late March. The features and safety additions that it packs are likely to push the prices of the Dark editions of both the Harrier and Safari, which currently range from Rs 18.90 lakh to Rs 22.60 lakh and Rs 19.78 lakh to Rs 23.25 lakh (all prices ex-showroom), respectively, further up.
