Hi Pavan, very rare and nice to see a Red SUV. Seen many Safari's in the usual white, black and silver colors. Have you considered getting the grey body cladding painted to match the body color? Dont know how it might look though. Just curious.

Thanks Aditya,

Yes its one of the few Safari Dicors in Red.

This color was discontinued after a fire at the factory paint shop.

You hardly get to see this color on a Safari.

Gave a thought on getting the claddings painted red, but somehow this combi looks a killer and hence retained it.

Pavan, you're lucky to own a rare colour. And yes, in my opinion the contrast cladding is much more appealing than body coloured.
In Delhi I have not seen a single one in this red.
