Tata Motors has launched the Kaziranga Edition of its Punch, Nexon, Harrier and Safari SUVs, with prices starting at INR 8.59 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. The special editions pay homage to India’s national parks, especially the Kaziranga National Park in the state of Assam. Tata Motors is planning to auction off one example of the Punch Kaziranga Edition to IPL fans and donate all proceeds from the winning bid to conservation efforts at Kaziranga.

The Kaziranga special editions are based on the range-topping trims of the respective models, which means you can expect all the top-level features and a bit more. All models come with a Grassland Beige exterior body color complemented with a piano black roof and Granite Black roof rails for a dual-tone finish. The wheels are finished in black as well. A satin black Rhino mascot can also be found on the front fenders.
The Punch Kaziranga Edition is available on the range-topping Creative trim. Inside, it features Earthy Beige leatherette upholstery, piano black door accents, and Earthy Beige dashboard mid pad. Also, the front headrests feature a Rhino mascot outline.
The Nexon Kaziranga Edition is available on the XZ+ trims with either petrol or diesel powertrains. Inside, it features Earthy Beige leatherette upholstery, piano black door accents, and Tropical Wood finish dashboard mid pad.
It’s a similar exercise for the Harrier Kaziranga Edition. It is available on the range-topping XZ+ trims in both manual and automatic. Inside, you’ll find Earthy Beige leatherette upholstery, Earthy Beige leatherette door inserts, and Tropical Wood finish dashboard mid pad.
As for the flagship model, the Safari Kaziranga Edition, well, it is available on XZ+ trims in 6- and 7-seater configurations. Also, notice that this is the only model to get the Rhino mascot outline on the second-row headrests as well.
Alright then, a bit of friendly advice: None of these models offer AWD/4WD with a transfer case and are NOT intended for off-road use or any kind of adventure in the woods. So don’t be misled by fancy commercials and get stuck somewhere in the woods.
