Tata Motors is currently conducting extensive road tests of the upcoming Safari facelift, which is reportedly set to launch in October this year. Recently, a camouflaged test vehicle was spotted, providing the most detailed glimpse of the facelifted Safari's design features. Here are some of the anticipated details visible in the spy shots.

Tata Safari's latest spy images unveil an intriguing blacked-out design around the headlamp housing, featuring an integrated air vent within the cluster. The new headlamps exhibit a sleeker appearance compared to the current Safari's bulbous units, while the blacked-out treatment adds a distinct dual-tone element to the SUV's front fascia. The redesign includes a completely revamped bumper and an all-new grille with slender horizontal slats, contributing to the overall updated look of the vehicle.

Speaking of cosmetic changes, the profile of the Tata Safari facelift does not show significant changes, as observed in the recent spy shots. However, these images do provide a glimpse of the newly designed twin five-spoke alloy wheels with a blacked-out finish. Although the rear portion remains heavily camouflaged, it is expected that the Safari will receive updates such as slimmer and connected LED tail-lamps, as well as a slightly modified rear bumper. These design enhancements are also anticipated to be incorporated into the upcoming ICE-powered Harrier facelift, set to be launched later this year.

The Safari facelift test mules that were spotted earlier have already indicated a significant redesign of the front fascia. The upcoming model will maintain its split LED headlamp arrangement, with the upper LED daytime running light (DRL) forming a continuous light bar that spans the width of the bonnet. In contrast, the main headlamp cluster located in the lower bumper is now positioned vertically, showcasing a distinct visual change compared to the current model.

During testing on the outskirts of Bengaluru, a camouflaged Safari test mule caught attention due to its KA number plate. The forthcoming petrol powertrain, showcased in the Curvv ICE concept, is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine generating 170hp and 280Nm of torque. On the other hand, the existing 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine, which delivers 170hp and 350Nm of torque, will remain unchanged. Both engine options will be available with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic gearbox.
