Tata Motors is taking the safety features of its Harrier and Safari SUVs to the next level by introducing a lane-keep assist feature as a part of its Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) package. This innovative addition actively prevents unintentional lane departure, providing an extra layer of security even when the driver doesn’t provide input.
Previously, Tata Motors had introduced various ADAS features in the pre-facelift versions of the Harrier and Safari, including forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot detection, and lane departure warning. However, lane-keep assist was conspicuously absent from the suite. With the transition from a hydraulic power steering system to an electronic power steering system in the updated SUVs, it is now possible to incorporate this valuable feature.
Tata Motors has reassured early buyers of the Harrier and Safari that this feature will be included later via a software update, further enhancing the vehicles’ safety features. Both SUVs recently achieved a prestigious 5-star Global NCAP rating for adult and occupant protection, setting a new standard for safety. In fact, they achieved the highest scores ever recorded in the Safer Cars for India program.
In addition to the steering system software update, Tata Motors is planning to offer over-the-air (OTA) updates for the advanced infotainment system in the facelifted Harrier, Safari, and Nexon models. This proactive approach to feature enhancement ensures that customers can enjoy cutting-edge technology and safety features in their Tata vehicles.
Tata Motors’ commitment to improving safety and technology features in its SUV lineup demonstrates its dedication to providing customers with an outstanding driving experience. The introduction of lane-keep assist, combined with the existing ADAS package and OTA updates, makes the Harrier and Safari even more attractive to those seeking advanced safety and technology in their vehicles.
