EX price quoted at around 8.6 lacs, exact will be told today.

Looks like Gurgaon is way behind from other cities

BTW, My Indica 2002 Model, well maintained, 89K KM driven was evaluated for 1.25 Lacs, sad. Anyways I am getting 1.5 Lacs from a travel agency, let see how it goes
Hey LX should be there in ware house, they must be trying to sell out 3liter LX stock first, before 2.2, its official & on TATA website too. Just ask TATA office in signature towers you will get help.

Dont sell your indica to dhingra evaluator, i am sure you must have met a sikh gentleman. He is an expert in underevaluating your car. If you offer to buy a secondhand car from him, he will overevaluate the same indica by 1.5 time, dont believe him.

Push them, 2.2 must be with them, its usual with dealers.

Let there be no doubt - LX is there and it is being made available to me in another 10 days or so.

Now anyone seen the mountain green colour in showroom - how does it compare with black?

The same is the fate of the passengers, especially in the second and third row. Not to mention the ride quality !!

Atmost, it is a bigger auto rickshaw

while I am no fan of the scorpio, and own a dicor myself, I feel your statement is a bit OTT on the scorp.

I have driven a scorpio (shared the driving with my friend who owned it) from Delhi to dharamsala and back non-stop (yes we did not halt overnight in dharamsala) and while there were a lot of things we did not like in the scorp (this was the 1st generation vehicle- in fact the first green colour scorpio sold in North india-per the MnM exec), one thing that was there was that the driver comfort was pretty good. also, remember that that punchy engine takes a lot of strain out of the high way drives. and we took out first pit halt after 400 kms, with no major aches!

so please be a bit more fair in your comments and do not trash another vehicle just for the heck of it. sure the Safari is way ahead in occupant comfort, but to call the scorp a bigger auto rick...hmmmmm!!

No offence meant here to the scorpion. Definitely it is peppy to drive. But the passenger comfort especially in the middle and last row is something not really desirable

Is anyone aware how much do they charge for the alloy wheels if you are exchanging with your stock (steel) rims, dashboard anti-skid mat and Reverse warning system as mentioned on their safari accessories page ??? .

No idea as to how much they charge. But my suggestion is to retain the original wheels as they are pretty good. My personal observation is that it is as good as alloys in terms of sturdiness and also heat dissipation. I am using tubeless tyres on my safari with the original wheels without any problem. Also, there is very little difference betweent the original wheels and the TATA alloys which come on VX from looks perspective.
Also, why waste money ?
Regarding the reverse guide system, I have installed RED SOUL which comes with a warranty and a decent one costing about 15 K

I've read that new safari comes with Express Power windows.

What's so special about Express Power windows ?

I assume that you talking about express down feature wherein you dont have to keep holding the switch for the window to roll down completely. This is useful in situations like paying toll when you dont have to wait for the window to unroll before you hand is free to pickup the money to be paid at the counter.

Agreed, I think the mention was because hardly any other car manufacturers mention this in features provided.

more-or-less yes, but not very immediately, have made up my mind unless the TD demotivates me.

The 4x4 version EX does come with 6.5J Alloys, but I might switch to 7J alloys. Now, we know Safari comes 235/70R16 tubeless tyres, but which make?
