It is powered by a Fiat-sourced BS6-compliant 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine that does duty on the Harrier. It produces 168hp of power and 350Nm of peak torque. It will come with the option of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
In the interiors, the new Safari will have Oyster White interiors and an ash wood finish on the dashboard. There will be a panoramic sunroof, leatherette seats, and automatic climate control, multiple airbags, along with touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and connected tech.
