We have to admit that Tata Motors has pulled off a great product with the new Safari. As such, we strongly suggest one opts for the automatic version as all the glitches associated with the manual can be avoided. Sure, the new Tata Safari doesn’t have the off-roading caliber that its predecessor flaunted, but even then, it’s not like the original was beating the Mahindra Thar at all the mud-plugging activities either. So the new Safari stacks up well by offering great comfort and style, a strong motor with decent dynamics, a long list of features, and a thoroughly usable third row. Considering this segment is going to get crowded soon, the company did well to plug it earlier on.
