Yeah, it will be 190x2.68 = 509.2Nm or 0.248 will be the torque to weight ratio. I am assuming the weight to be 2050Kg.

FYI guys.. The TCIC safari (both 4wd and 2wd) and the Petrol Safari are still available with the new Dicor facelift. The TCIC safari 4wd is around 7.25L on road Chennai.

What exactly can we infer from this ratio? obviously GV has a higher ratio than Gypsy but so what?

Nope Buddy! I got a quote from VST Motors, Chennai for a 4x4 TCIC. Dunno about the trim though. The price list just showed TCIC (new facelift) 4x4.

Guys sorry about the previous post. Just called back the dealer again to confirm, it seems the 4wd TCIC is not available.

The Petrol Version is available with 4x4 it seems.

Apologies for the wrong info.

BTW, are you bothered about the Swift/SX4 quality interior as some say? What about the Swift steering wheel they have plonked?
To be very honest I never sit inside a swift so I do not know how that is, but Vitara interior are very practical and do have luxurious feel. I find the steering very sporty with soft feel and made of excellent material, if its same in Swift then its good for Swift. It is very responsive too. So there is no botheration rather its the opposite I feel safe as the spares won't be too expensive coz they are same. (Edit- and don't forget I got it at a price lesser then SX4, close to Swift.)

BTW, the GV steep climb video I showed before could belong to a GV with a more powerful engine, a 2.4L or DDiS engine. It is a video from Europe. The white one in the animation video is mine.
This is an excellent allround vehicle. Only drawback is FE and high price (new vehicle). If Maruti brings in diesel and localize its production and launch it close to 15L it will be a super big hit. It has sedan like comfort, more spacious, superb suspension, tough built, 4x4, all wheel drive and Suzuki backup what else would be needed. The handling of all wheel drive is different from the sedans, specially on turns.

Thanks Mandeep. One older price is available at cheaper price, but for me this is good.. Peace of mind and latest product. FE is a concern but on other hand the deal price gives initial advantage.

Now concentrating on its offroad abilities and enjoying its onroad manners till then.

Sure, how could I forget that.. (man me dusra laddu phuta!!). I will definitely be there, infact I would also like to participate in recces in and around Jaipur or any other work for 'SUV Explore' in this area.

This one is a forest land very close to our house known as Jhalana forest. I don't go deep inside but only till the point locals take their cattle.

Thanks Amar82.

I was going through specs of GV and Scorpio and found that GV has little better configuration than scorpio for offroad.

GV / Scorpio
Length- 4500 / 4430 (Scorpio advantage)
Width- 1810 / 1817 (GV advantage)
Height- 1695 / 1975 (GV advantage)
Wheel Base- 2640 / 2680 (GV advantage)
GC- 200 / 180 (GV advantage)

Can't find figures for front and back over hangs or approach and departure angles. (I guess Scorpio will score there)

Yogesh, these comparisons are rather superficial, won't matter that much in offroading.

While Scorpio and GV both have same power of 120bhp, the Scorpio has 290Nm at a very practical 1800-2000rpm while GV can only deliver 170Nm at 4000rpm. That clinches the victory for Scorpio.

Ofcourse it will redline higher than scorpio. Vitara has a gas motor.

^^ Seems to be another gypsy and jeep war, lets leave it.

The Vitara goes to river bed offroad and pass with flying colors on each front- comfort, ride, power, speed, safety and capability. The only drawback was FE. Anyways had great fun. Sorry folk only 4 pics.
