That is the evidence I have based on my trip log. I could match the company of a sonata on the maa-blr highway; the merc on mlr-goa highway and the lancer on the blr-maa return, until they realised it was not a Safari Diesel. This vehicle is for the guys with more heart and less head!
Safari is one of the best SUV's made in dia. Its only problem is it is a TATA product, and nothing else...
