Although, the vehicle is mostly used for commercial purposes, there is less safety features for both the driver and the passengers. There is no airbags, fog lamps, anti-lock braking system (ABS), EBD and traction control devices. However, the body of the van is built strong and is of a quality of a standard MUV. So, the passengers can feel safe from any crash if it faces at all. However, with strong brakes, the chances of meeting up with an accident are rare.

The passenger version of TATA Ace, TATA Magic has not the option of any stereo system. However, the vehicle can be customized and the owners can easily add a standard quality music system with AM/FM radio and CD/MP3 player. The vehicle is not up to the mark in terms of other basic accessories too. However, the vehicle has got great popularity and thus the manufacturer of the vehicle has recently launched another upgraded version of TATA Magic with a new name TATA Magic Iris. With so many features and accessories missing in the van, there was a chance to lose the race in the auto market. However, since this was the only car made available when it was launched, it has managed to get hold of a certain percentage of the market share with ease.
