Tata Motors launches Red Dark Editions of the Nexon, Harrier & Safari

In a bid to further rev up demand for its SUVs, Tata Motors has launched the Nexon, Harrier and Safari Red Dark Editions. Prices for the Nexon Red Dark Edition start at Rs 12.35 lakh, while the Harrier and Safari Red Dark start at Rs 21.77 lakh and Rs 22.61 lakh, respectively. February 22 also marked two years of the launch of the new Tata Safari in the Indian market. 

Like the previous special editions, the changes to the Red Dark edition models are mainly cosmetic. The Safari and the Harrier also get notable tech and safety upgrades as well. The prices for the Red Dark editions are detailed below.

All three Red Dark Edition models get ‘Carnelian’ red seat upholstery with a quilted pattern, red leatherette grab handles, grey trim on the dashboard and piano black inserts on the steering wheel.

Nexon, Harrier, Safari Red Dark: what's different?
Like the popular Safari, Nexon and Harrier Dark edition, the newly introduced Red Dark Edition gets an all-black exterior courtesy of the ‘Oberon Black’ colour scheme. The three special edition models also get red brake calipers and a subtle red insert on the front grille. 

When it comes to the interior, all three Red Dark Edition models get ‘Carnelian’ red seat upholstery with a quilted pattern, red leatherette grab handles, grey trim on the dashboard and piano black inserts on the steering wheel.

Nexon Red Dark: what's new?
Tata Motors had only showcased the Safari and Harrier Red Dark Editions at the Auto Expo 2023 in January, with the Nexon Red Dark Edition being added to the line-up now. With this, the Nexon is now available in three design iterations, including the regular Dark Edition and Kaziranga Edition.

Based on the top spec XZ+ Lux trim, the Nexon Red Dark gets features like tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), in-built air purifier, wireless charger, cruise control, ventilated seats and connected car tech.

Tata Harrier, Safari Red Dark: tech, safety upgrades
The biggest highlight on the Harrier and Safari Red Dark Editions are the addition of ADAS safety tech. This includes Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), forward collision alert, lane departure warning, lane change assist and traffic sign recognition. Both SUVs are based on their top variant  and get the new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment, a 7-inch digital driver's display, and a 360-degree camera. Both the SUVs also get memory function for the driver seat.

The Safari, additionally, gets ventilated seats for the second row, red ambient lighting near the door handles and around the panoramic sunroof, along with cushions on the head restraints for second-row passengers.

Some of the tech and safety updates seen on the Harrier and Safari Red Dark are expected to be introduced on the standard variants in the coming weeks.

Nexon, Safari, Harrier Red Dark: no mechanical changes
All three special editions of the SUVs carry forward the same RDE compliant powertrains that were recently introduced by Tata Motors. The Nexon comes with a 120hp, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and a 115hp, 1.5-litre diesel, with both the engines being paired to either a 6-speed manual or AMT gearbox. The Harrier and Safari also continue with the 170hp, 2.0-litre diesel engine that’s mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Tata Motors is offering a warranty of 3 years/ 1,00,000km on the Red Dark edition of the SUVs.
