Tata has stowed the new Safari’s spare wheel in an old-school location

Tata Safari Facelift Side

When the Tata Safari was first introduced in the Indian car market in 1998, it featured a rear tailgate-mounted spare wheel, which was easily accessible. This design remained unchanged until Tata launched the Safari Storme in 2012, and the spare wheel was relocated to the underside of the vehicle, below the boot. This design solution is present in the facelifted Tata Safari as well, and our CarDekho presenter has demonstrated how to access its spare wheel (hint: you don’t need to slide under the car for it).

As demonstrated, the spare wheel is still accessed from the boot area. You start by opening the flap located on the right side of the boot loading lip, using a flat and slim object. Once the flap is opened, retrieve the wrench provided in the vehicle's toolkit to loosen the bolt inside the flap. As you loosen the bolt, the spare wheel, attached to a cable, will come down from the underbody and onto the surface. You can unhook the cable from the wheel to free it from the mechanism and use it to replace the damaged or punctured wheel.
