Default Tata Safari 2.2VTT - Change in prices?

Hi,

Was just surfing the Safari Dicor website when I notced that the Price section says 'New prices will be declared soon'.

Anyone has any idea of this? Has any inkling been given in the Auto Expo 2008? Or is it to combat the Scorpio mHawk?

If anything, its the mHawk that would have to moderate itself to the 2.2L Dicor, not the other way round. This is most likely a price revision to mirror actual costs, over what could well have been an introductory price for the first few months of the new Safari's launch.

I tend to agree with theMAG unless it's a soft launch of a V2 of the 2.2 with styling cues from the Sumo Grande's interiors such as integrated roof-mounted AC vents etc. Too early for the latter I think!

I am sure the 16-odd 2.2 owners in TBHP (I think) are very anxious to know :-)

Suncity(prospective buyer), confirms the price rise by 9k on the Safari 2.2 EX model, OTR.

The VX put up for display at the Auto Expo had quite a few changes including motorized ORVMs with built-in clear lens indicators on them. When I asked about it they said "it will be available on 2008 models" and the additions will be available as spares for older vehicles if you want them.

I think he's talking about the indicators which are not available currently -

No, it does not have a fully collapsable motorised ORVM's but can be electrically adjusted from inside.

I think this is a normal increase, not related to any improvements.

Saar

The LX OTR is up by 9K. But the good part is that it comes now with "tubeless tyres"

Default Free Upgrade

They should not have made these changes and asking the owner's of the 2007 models to purchase is something which Tata should not have done.

If they have done these small changes in the 2008 models
Atleast they should have given free upgradation for the owners who had purchased last year in 2007, hardly there were a few 1000 cars sold.

What say TBHPians ?????

Every manufacture is increasing the price as their input cost have increased. Be it Maruti, Hyundai or any other.

So the TATA also increasing the price of safari. It has nothing to do with M hawk coming...Sumo Coming..

Can anyone please confirm whether after the price increase the LX comes factory-fitted with tubeless tyres?

The new Sumo has come and boy is it rocking.I don't think many customers will be bothering with a Safari anymore now that the Sumo Grande is here.
