Hey Deepak - Nice Pics there Mate - all I can say is we saw it first only here on T-BHP !!!

BTW - This might sound silly - BUt why is there a Roof AC and also a Rear AC - I thought only one out of these would be there ?

Is the Roof AC For the 3rd Row or what ? Never seen anything like this ?

Default Right Zappo and Sauri

@ Zappo: My personal expectations are quite high, but then the need of new chassis is a necessity for this vehicle. But then its true that Tata has never promised more than a new engine. And you are right that as far as SUV goes, Safari gives more at a less price point. But I would maintain that a new vehicle can be and must be expected given that new Indigo and Indica are going to be here. So they could have done a new vehicle.

I also appreciate Safari for what it gives, i.e. 4X4. There are many people also looking at the vehicle in which they can carry more people and do some offroading. Here, of course Safari is the champ given its abilities and price point.


@Samurai: Yes you are also correct that safari is the best option avaliable to you and not the Innova. Here the safari is better than the competition, especially the Mahindra vehicles. And Safari is definitely a better handler than the Scorpio.

While would have been discussed before, a friend had a different experience. He found better FE with 4WD always engaged on his Jeep Liberty.

IMO it depends what sort of surface your travelling on and whether he went off road or not.

That is not correct. On hard tarmac (read zero-slip conditions) you should not have 4WD engaged. I'm sure the book would mention that.

Jeep Liberty doesnot have 4WD, it has AWD IMO.

It will lead to major damage, not advisable to drive in 4WD continously, infact not to exceed speeds more then 40kmph.

There is no such speed restriction PROVIDED you are on slippery roads.

Anup Sir, that was not pointed towards you at all. In General its noticed that people do end up fighting when talking about Fiat, Honda City vs Baleno, Safari vs Scorpio and now even Swift vs Getz

I read that the Tucson was electronically limited to 40 for 4WD applications. It wouldnot exceed 40kmph in 4WD mode.

I am not aware of this (highly undesirable) trait of the Tucson.
It certainly is not the case with my Scorpio.
