I have seen the spy picture in the autocar magazine and very sad to notice single head unit for such a wonderful SUV. we see dual headlight even for a palio . I hope TATA's do something on this aspect.

I have to agree with you on this, since most corporate car purchase are also part of the employee package and how many of white collared middle management guys have you seen driving a safari ??? just how many ???, perhaps you can count them on your fingers.

Well, the Scorpio 2.2 will definitely be more peppier and comfortable to drive in the cities but unless M&M can come up with something to stablize the scorpio, I hope it doesnt get airborne with 2.2.

There are pros & cons for both, but with the DICOR 2.2 the safari will become more city drivable and it has already proven itself on the highway driving.

At least I felt so.

I don't think DICOR 3.0 engine posed any competition to the current 2.6 liter scorpio engine....so I am afraid Scorpio 2.2 will be way better than DICOR 2.2 and that will be sad as I am not a Mahindra fan at all....
Others are trusting this post, for you I suggest waiting for the formal announcement by TATA.

There is no other way to make believe.

Till then...
With this price hike (assuming its across the variants), Safari 2.2 will touch 10L for LX and 13L for VX On-Road, bangalore.

It will need some serious thinking from its buyers, before making the kill.

Price hike expected of about 1 lakh without further details.

Wait till the begining of Oct, there will be some price decrease from TATA + additional discount by dealer, it'll be a win-win situation for new buyers of 3.0

Sorry if I gave you the impression that I was comparing existing engines of these two vehicles.

I was talking about the new oncoming engines from both companies. Agreed that currently Scorpio engine is better than Safari's but Safari's comfort and ride are better than Scorpio's. So if TATA come out with a better engine or at least cater to the customer feedback there will be good fight between these two, provided Mahindra improves their seating and ride quality.

Got a call this morning from the dealer here in Kolkata, I was dilly-dallying on the 3 or 2.2 [ http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/what-c...dicor-now.html ]

The 2.2 he will be getting around 20th and he will let me know about the price structure within 3-4 days.

As anticipated there are offering the 3.0 at almost the ex-factory price; one does save quite a lot of money - everything depends now on the price point of 2.2.

Checked it from 'Joshi Autos' Chandigarh. To be launched around 25- 27th of this month - confirmed.

But was informed that 2.2L is being launched only in EX & VX Models - which implies that min cost shall be 9.5+ Lacs.
LX will still be 3L model.

Quite saddening - for all those who were expecting 2.2L LX < 8 Lacs.

What say??

Did you get the pricing from the dealer or were you just 'implying' aka speculating ??

So with increased pricing and no information about performance of new engine, I think its better to wait and watch for some more time. This way we will get dealer discounts and also know how the engine is doing.

Are there any other modifications on interiors as well as exteriors?

Apart from the information that its going to be launched end-sep, nothing else can be confirmed.

So lets keep the speculation out for now (enough has been done already) and lets wait for the formal launch

Why keep speculation out?
This thread is all about speculation

In fact if Ratan Tata reads this thread his heart will be overwhelmed and he will be all tears....

This thread was about speculation but is now slowly crawling towards reality, we got the tech specs of engine, we got the dates and perhaps we will get the pricing and variants before the actual launch, as some members have posted here.

This is a 2.2L thread to discuss about the 2.2 and not to discuss at what RPM the Safari or the Scorpio does 100 or so. Please continue discussion in the Safari vs Scoprio vs Innova thread (Innova Vs Safari Vs Scorpio)here

I hope Tata adds Climate Control and ABS optional on all models.

Naaa, not on all models but as an option pack or in the highest variant, since it will increase the price by a good amount and take safari beyond many's reach.
