2023 Tata Safari and Harrier Undergo Bharat NCAP Crash Testing

Published on

Tata Motors, a prominent advocate for vehicle safety in India, has taken a significant step by nominating its flagship models, the 2023 Tata Safari and Harrier, for comprehensive crash testing under the Bharat New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). As one of the initial 30 cars selected for this testing, Tata Motors intends to demonstrate the enhanced safety features and improvements in these updated models.

Both the 2023 Tata Safari and Harrier have been equipped with essential safety measures as standard across all variants. This includes six airbags, three-point seatbelts, seatbelt reminders, and adaptive cruise control.

Elevated Safety Measures in the Tata Safari and Harrier Facelifts

The revamped Tata Safari offers an extensive array of safety features, right from the base model. These features include ISOFIX child seat mounts, four disc brakes, brake disc wiping, hill-hold assistance, traction control, electronic stability programming, rollover mitigation, corner stability control, anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), central locking, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

While many of these features are shared by the Harrier, it’s important to note that rear disc brakes are not included as standard in this model. Furthermore, the top-tier variants of both the Tata Safari and Harrier boast a driver’s knee airbag, bringing the total count of airbags to seven.

Challenging the Competition, Including the Mahindra XUV700

The Tata Safari and Harrier face fierce competition, notably from the Mahindra XUV700, which has already secured an impressive five-star rating in Global NCAP’s crash tests. Given Tata Motors’ unwavering commitment to prioritizing crash safety in its vehicles, it’s highly likely that these updated SUVs will also achieve commendable scores under the new Bharat NCAP crash testing protocols. This will further bolster Tata Motors’ reputation as a standard-bearer for vehicle safety in India.

Addressing Rumors About the Stellantis-Sourced 2.0-Liter Diesel Engine

The crash tests for the 2023 Tata Safari and Harrier will also address persistent rumors surrounding the Stellantis-sourced 2.0-liter MultiJet diesel engine utilized in these vehicles. It has been suggested that the engine’s oil filter is positioned in close proximity to the driver’s footwell, potentially posing a significant safety risk in the event of a collision. Up until now, no vehicles equipped with this engine have undergone crash tests, intensifying the speculation. The forthcoming tests will provide essential clarity on this matter, helping to assess the engine’s safety and addressing any associated concerns.
