Tata Motors has teased its Red Dark Edition line-up in a twitter post which simply said “Arriving Soon” and showed the silhouette of the Safari, Harrier and Nexon on a darkish-red background. The Red Dark editions of the Safari and the Harrier were first showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo but now it seems like the Nexon will also be included in the line-up. The line-up will likely be launched in March or April of this year and will come with a few cosmetic changes and could get some extra features over the normal line-up. We reached out to a few dealers who told us that the price will be around Rs. 1 to 1.5 lakhs over the normal line-up.
The cars will come with ADAS just like the top-spec 2023 Harrier and Safari. The ADAS suite will consist of many safety features like autonomous emergency braking, forward & rear collision warnings, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot assist, traffic sign recognition, lane departure warning, lane change alert, and high beam assist. It will also feature 6 airbags and an “enhanced electronic safety program with 17 functionalities”.
The cars showcased at the Auto Expo featured an All- Black exterior that included black rims with red brake calipers and a black grille overlaid with red accents. The interior came with Red upholstery that had a quilted pattern and carbon fiber like trims over a piano-black dashboard. The features list of the cars included a 10.25-inch touchscreen, 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and 360-degree cameras just like the top-spec versions of the 2023 Harrier and Safari get. The touchscreen will also get a new updated operating system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto which would be able to support 200 voice commands in 6+ languages. The cars also come with some other features like a panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats with memory function, and ambient lighting.
Under the hood, the cars are likely to feature no changes. Tata motors recently updated its line-up to comply with the BS6 phase 2 regulations. Therefore, the Harrier and Safari will probably feature the Kryotec 2.0-litre diesel engine that makes 168 bhp and 350 Nm of torque. The engine will either be mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox. The Nexon on the other hand could come with the 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine that makes around 109 bhp and 170 Nm of torque. The Nexon comes with both automatic and manual options.
