Damn! I cant wait to get my hands on this - trouble is, I CANT! Not until the end of October, anyway.

Have fun guys - do testdrive BEFORE the launch and post a review!

4.) Rear spare will continue as removing it does not give a SUV look to the beast (as mentioned by TATAs)
5.) Interiors may or may not be beige. Nobody knows at the moment and all we have heard till now is hoax. However there is 99% possibility of this feature
6.) VXi top end now will come with front two electric seats

HOW DO I KNOW ALL THIS???

1.) Sales and dealer meeting will start today at 2:00 pm in Bangalore and will run till 8:00 pm for launch to dealers
2.) dealers will get to know details only after 2pm except that they already know of 143 BHP
3.) I will have the updated by 7 or 8 pm and will keep you guys posted...

The steering will be as vague as it is today?
Make it a direct steering please...
I would like the Safari to go where I point it to.
Else that 143 BHP is going to cause a nightmere....IMHO.

lets hope it lives up to the hype and there is no ususal outsourcing of RnD by TATA to its customers!

Hey Steeroid. Test drive may be available from 21st i guess as these guys will have stock on 20th or 21st. And my personal experience with tata dealers, they do not really wait till the launch. Ask the dealer from whom you took ur safari and i am sure he will at least arrange for you to have a look and then a TD after 25th

Well....kinda!

I had posted a thread about a month back for selling my baleno since I am getting a company car and dont have parking for 2 cars. Still to sell it since there is a logistic issue involved-the car has Bangy regn and I am in Hyd.

Sorry for going OT

Yep surely second that, i drove the dicor of some management guy in TATAs here in Pune. His driver was kind enough for me to try it out. The Steering was way out of alignment and it had lots of play. I hope they fix this and get it on the lines of the Scorpio's steering. This will really add to the driving pleasures of this beast cause as said by Anand with 143 bhp you wouldnt want to point in the wrong direction and step on the Gas, cause then it would be too late...with bumper to bumper traffic these days.

The civic was able to hold the lane at one point whereas the Safari had to cut across. May have been intentional, but I'm impressed nonetheless.
On the contrary civic was bumpy couple of times where as Safari was rock steady, could be because of weight.
