They have new color options too. If this one looks as good in flesh as it does on the site, that's one slick Safari.

One thing i was wondering was 3.0 engine is gone but they are still offering older 2.0 TCIC engine for 6.46lakhs(ex-gurgaon).

The steal is LX 2.2 at 7.33lakhs(ex-gurgaon).The registration is just 1% of the vehicle price for vehicles in this price range in haryana.

PM me if you hear any concrete amounts for these "exchange" offers

You are not paying 2 lacs just for the safety features - there's quite a bit more which would probably add up - leather upholstery, alloy wheels, wooden center console & of course the safety features & the DVD

Is Tata seeing a mad rush for 2.2L Safaris. I think they will come to terms in 6 months and will have a price drop of at least 50-75K from current levels. Else the competition (Especially Scorpio) will take away some more of the market share in this segment.
totally agreed
as soon as scorpio 2.2 will be in market TATA will start discounts and low interest scemes from tata finance as like kotak mahindra at 7%

LET see how Scorpio EAGLE 2.2 Comes with

Smile I liket it

First time (for me) the front grille looks really nice. With the new engine and the new (front) looks, now Safari is a true SUV; exteranally and internally as well.

Don't forget about that 8% extra tax, govt is just waiting to put after the holidays - most probably.

Well LX 2.2 is what I want and that is what I get within 7 days, and I am off to north bengal on 18th oct for a 2000 km journey. Life does not getter better than this.

Is there really such a large difference from old VX prices? I doubt it.

The 13L you're talking about is VX 4x4. 4x4 costs about 95k more then 4x2, plus Vx costs about 1 lakh more than EX.

The best Safari variant is the EX (IMHO).

Tata has really pulled off a whammy with the pricing of the 2.2. My dealer still cant believe the pricing when i told him. He still maintains 30-40 K increase in ex showroom price for all versions (inc LX). when I told him about the website, he seemed to be totally unaware of the fact that it had been updated.

now, if I was a prospective customer, i would not look too kindly on the "knowledge" of the dealer!

P.S. the new colours look nice, BUT, it is still hard to beat a Black safari for road presence- call me biased

15 secs is what they claim. let some good mag test it and see. im pretty sure theyll find it 1 or 2 secs slower than what tata claim. and that isnt a rubber burner by any standards. the scorpio and innova are about as quick. anyway now why dosent someone put up a detailed td report???

I dont know if anyone else noticed or not but this engine release for india is stated to comply to BSIII i.e Euro III emission norms.

Its a very tricky statement since BS IV will come later and TATA is stating that they currently meet the existing norms (does not mean they cant meet BSIV as same engine meets EuroIV norms in Europe.)
