If we are going to compare the safety features then both SUVs are capable of a safe highway and adventure journey because Tata Safari is built on the legendary futuristic Optimal Modular Efficient Global Architecture (OMEGARC) D8 based platform which has been used in the Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles offer the safest and superior build quality while Mahindra XUV 700 is loaded with world-class ADAS safety features.

Though Safari is not tested, it has been also built on the 5-Star safety rating standards.

Braking and traction also play an important role in safety. Suppose, if your braking and traction are perfect then probably you can survive an accident without any collision. Hence, we think braking and traction are the primary safety compared to external body safety after a collision. Both SUVs are enabled with ABS, ABD, ESP, Hill Hold Control, Traction Control and Tata Safari has additional Brake Assist and Hill Descent Control also.
