Spied and Rendered – Tata Safari Merlin
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
After Shoeb’s first attempt at visualizing the upcoming Safari didn’t meet with the expected response, he pulled up his socks and tried again.
From the spyshots that have appeared online, we understand the Safari Merlin’s front end is going end up being flatter. There will be a thick chrome plate placed right below the edge of the bonnet extending into the headlamp. The headlamps thus will resemble a chat bubble.
Interiors will receive minor touch ups in the form of a faux wood panel adjacent to the instrument panel. The AC vent are in line to the Vista and the Aria. The blue background lighting is similar to a i20 experience.
The mechanicals will undergo some changes. We hear the steering and suspension systems have been adjusted for better driving experience in city traffic. The 2.2-liter CRDI engine might benefit from a dual mass flywheel from the Aria. Overall NVH will be lower on the Merlin.
