Tata Motors has added two new variants to the Safari line-up, called XMS and XMAS. At Rs 17.96 lakh and Rs 19.26 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom), they are positioned between the respective XM and XT variants.
Compared to the XM variant, the Tata Safari XMS and XMAS variants gain additional features such as a panoramic sunroof, driving modes (Eco, City and Sport), a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four speakers and four speakers. Loud audio, steering wheel-mounted controls, rear parking camera, rain-sensing windshield wipers, height-adjustable driver's seat, automatic headlights, and power-folding ORVM hardware.
Under the hood, the Tata Safari is powered by the same 2.0-liter Kryotec diesel that develops 168 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a six-speed manual and automatic transmission. Earlier this month, Tata Motors introduced the Harrier XMS variant, with prices starting at Rs 17.20 lakh (ex-showroom).
