ata Safari belongs to a time when the SUV segment in India was neither popular nor thriving. 14 years back, when the Tata Safari was first launched, it came up with MPV-styled looks and indigenous design qualities and only the true off-roader from the brand Tata. Mahindra seemed to rule the road and Tata Safari did not shake the earth nor increased the footfalls in the showrooms as soon as the SUV was launched.
However, the Safari slowly and gradually developed cult status as it started growing on the adventure-loving riders with the right array of off-road abilities, ride comfort and imposing stature. Tata Safari was termed as one of the best SUVs you could buy in India, a long time ago.
