Thanks, it seems you are teasing us, releasing them one by one . So the EX does come with alloy wheels or am I mistaken.

Ever since I first saw this new grille I've been telling myself I've seen this before on some other vehicle. With the new pics the resemblence becomes clear:

Looks like the LX version also gets a 2.2L VVT engine as per the brochure.. so we may not have a LX 3.0 as assumed before. The warranty shows at 2Yrs/75000km* ... whats the current warranty on 3.0?

The brochure was definitely helpful. But it does not list the 3.0 Dicor atall ..

Wish Tata provides the ABS + EBD as an option on the EX.

Awesome neo_trace .. The brochure is quiet detailed and makes new 2.2 more desirable to own.(specially the power/torque characteristics).

Darn... Its time for the Italian Job..(Steer where are thou)

Wow - thanks for the brochure! Frankly, it doesnt look bad at all - was the spare always in the centre ?
Any firmed up pricing yet ? Sorry if I missed those somewhere on this rapidly growing thread.

Superb find Neotrace ( Mehul !! ) - A brochure before the Car is officially launched.

I think you deserve an Applause for all this Cheers !!!

It is a T-BHP First !!!

I am quite liking this whole new Safari !!!

Well the Wheel cover is Debatable - You can either love it or hate it ( I am in the former group )

Overall my conclusion - I think the new Safari will be a Success !!!

Aah! this is bliss man.

Limited Slip differential on the 4WD, that one is new, isn't it?

Alloys are there on EX 4WD, just like before. LX doesn't come with 4WD option, but curiously petrol Safari has 4WD option.
