they should come up with something smaller ..
like a whole new design (lower wider ),completely different engine ,better gearbox ..a real shift on the fly ...
i really dbout they can reduce weight on the current design ..
Quote:
powered by something close to 130+ BHP considering the weight it carries
that is probably being a bit too optimistic...40 bhp gain is quite a bit i dbout they can manage more than 120 bhp ..

AS it is the same engine. I dont think 140 is realistic. I think the max they can go from that old engine is 120bhp. Lets see what we get.

even i read the article about the safari in ACI- but did anybody look at the engine specs..?? they are quoting a 3.0 litre crdi with 115 bhp on tap...!!! c'mon ACI, that's the limit..... tatas have always given us some pretty good engines- you can say that by just looking at the indigo- 70 bhp from a 1.4 litre IDI...... (the accent crd-i produces 82 from a 1.5 litre crdi, which makes the 70 bhp 1.4 from tata look quite healthy- especially if you consider that it's an IDI- the fact that the intercooled version was launched recently is a different matter). methinks if it's a 3.0, then the safari would surely be producing 130 bhp+.....

but it's only a matter of time- we'll get to know the whole hog by the 2nd of aug, i guess....

but no matter what, one thing is for certain- the new safari crdi will surely kick the scorpio's and endeavour's rear-hard.... can't wait to get my hands on one.....

No doubt about that. Safari was always my favourite SUV minus the engine. The new CRDi should be atleast 120+..remember something in OD about this..


I just hope that they put a CRDI for the Indica soon.. That would make it a real hot mini! I still believe that the Indica has class leading space and looks in it's segmant.

yup...even i love the indica...great car... but i don't see a crdi happening for it anytime soon- there have been no indications from tata regarding this- but a turbo/intercooled indica is on the cards- and should hit the showrooms late this year....

so will I, and almost every bhpian.......

but at least some from your wishlist is already present on the going-to-be-launched safari... like the 16 inch alloys- there was a mention in OD regarding the new safari crdi going the scorpio (crde) way, and adorning 16 inchers, albeit alloys, in this case.....

and same for the airbags and abs- both are already present on the safari 2.1 petrol, and i see no reason why tatas wouldn't offer it in their latest baby... as for the sunroof, it could be offered as an optional accessory (guessing here). don't think the climate control would make it though.....

and regarding the engine, it never hurts to expect 140 bhp, if it's a 3.0 crdi; or the 2.2 mentioned by mr. ratan at detroit.... but, no matter what the power, we can safely expect axle-splitting torque, in the region of 280 nm+.......tatas will definitely deliver on that count..... and for most SUV owners, TORQUE MATTERS.....i for one, simply love that shove back in the seat from a torquey engine....
