Tata vehicles are available worldwide. But, the most buyers are coming from its homeland India. The company produces affordable and durable vehicles. Their success came with the versatility of the products. Tata produces buses, different types of trucks, and also passenger cars. It is obvious that the company won’t be so popular if there is no a crossover in the lineup. The Indian company is active in this area, and the 2018 Tata Safari will fill the spot in full-size segment.
This SUV found a way to hearts of its users right from its first edition. Now, it is a modern and attractive vehicle. However, look without performance doesn’t guarantee success. Tata Safari is capable of on- and off-road drive and its versatility is praised by all owners. Now, 2018 Safari will be even more attractive with revisit and tuning.

For 2018 Tata Safari engineers are preparing a brand-new engine. Nevertheless, a 2.0-l diesel is going to be optional to the current 2.2-l 4-cylinder drivetrain. The upcoming engine will have outputs of 150 horses and 320 Nm (235 lb-ft) of torque. This and other mills are using the 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
On the other hand, good-old 2.2-l can make 160 horses and 290 lb-ft of torque. It is a powerful and reliable solution in combination with 200 mm of ground clearance.
