Both SUVs are based on the OMEGARC architecture, derived from Land Rover’s D8 platform.
The Tata Harrier and Safari have become the first cars in India to receive a Bharat-NCAP 5-star rating for adult and child occupant protection.
The announcement was made by Nitin Gadkari, Minister for Road Transport and Highways. “Bharat-NCAP is India’s independent, atmanirbhar voice on vehicle safety. It is benchmarked to the best-in-class global standards and the Bharat-NCAP vehicle rating system is designed to advance road safety and vehicle safety standards beyond mandatory regulations,” Gadkari said.
“I’m delighted that the first ever vehicles being certified today with the highest achievable 5-star rating, are both from Tata Motors. I congratulate them on the award of this coveted certification with the highest possible ratings and for continuing to enrich their legacy of introducing the safest vehicles on Indian roads,” the minister added.
This year, Tata Motors introduced the updated versions of the Harrier and Safari. Both SUVs are based on the OMEGARC architecture, derived from Land Rover’s D8 platform.
The Harrier and Safari come equipped with 6 airbags and ESC as standard across all variants. The SUVs also get 3-point seat belts in all rows, seat belt reminders for all passengers, seat belts with retractors, pretensioners, load limiters and anchor pretensioners.
