Thanks Maggie Its being for last one week. I had tough time driving after I took delivery of her as it was after 7pm.

The front windscreen gets fogged fast in a rainy day. This is in comparison to the Santro I had.

No Mr.V for alloys They are on stock rims.


Driving impressions:

Manual says: till 1000- 1500Kms dont go more than 2000 rpm.

I did do once or twice though and hope its not going to be an issue.

Gears:

First gear hates being used, its short and its tough to put into first gear now and then. Same with reverse gear. Need to sort this when I go for service.

Its gallops from 1200 rpm and hence you cruise when it reaches 2000. Then you get into next higher gear which kills rpm by 500. Excellent as you are in the power band. You again go till 2000 and slot into next higher gear.

I was able to drive from 30kmph in 3rd gear @ 900rpm.

Yes, its a bit boomy between 1000-1200, then its goes off.

Maybe I am used to Santro higher seating position and its not so great handling. Safari didnt put a frown to my face at any time. It did take curves at decent speed than one said it cant. I can be squeezed like my old hatch and when you are in the power band, the way it pulls ahead is just awesome.

Tata, awesome engine!

Rest later...

Great. Congrats. Can you tell us price you paid and any discounts.
Also some photos of interiors. BTW the electronics display looks tempting. How do you make all the lights glow?

I may also jump to Safari from Santro (maybe limited bcos of moolah perspective...)

You mean, JK Paappaan (one who hordes the elephant, i.e: Mahout?)

@ J.K: How do you find the turning radius? That's the only thing i don't like about Safari

So, J.K when's the TREAT?
