Tata Safari Reviews
The Tata safari does not look too different when compared to the older/previous model. The earlier model was not a bad looking car, but the new version could have offered a little more of a change. The shape and size of the car is also the same as before. The chassis of the car is much lighter and it is also well developed. The same wheelbase is also maintained. There are a lot of changes made to the face of the car as well- since the square shaped headlights are now gone and been replaced with edgy and angular projectors. The bumper grille of the car is all black there is a chrome bar right on top of that. The fog lamps are rounder and the air dam is thin. There are lines on the front bumper that makes the car quite refined to look at. The wider door also adds to the looks of the car. There are changes in the door handles, side mirrors, indicators, etc. From the side of Safari, one can get a good look at the 16 inch alloy wheels with the silver colored rails, bulgy wheel arches etc.The earlier exterior landmark of the car was the spare wheel at the boot gate- this has actually gone missing from this car. The rear spoiler has changed, along with the stretched chrome bar. The color and the finish of the car has also changed quite a bit. The car comes in seven different colors- Urban Bronze, Astern Black, Sardinia Red, Pearl Champagne, Pearl White, Arctic White, Arctic Silver.
