But once you get used to it, its driving nirvana.. you are cool, relaxed, composed, collected, at 120+ kmph, engine turning over at 2K rpm, while everybody else is furiously revving and changing gears..

Bhag-san: arigato.

I'm moving Safari out the door for now, I'll mostly go for Aveo 1.6 ... but i'm checking stuff on Petra too. It looks a bit more attractive to my eye and the wallet.

Do itashi maashte..

For Petra - do ample research on the service and spares availibility in your area.. talk to the FIAT service incharge at Tata service stations where you will be going to.. I have posted my troubles in another thread..

Cool

hey,

The 'New' Safari range, starting at 6.4 lakhs, is the old 2.0L IDI 90 Ps engine in the new look body. Its out-dated and under-powered as compared to it's more powerful and modern 3.0L DICOR counterpart, which costs 6.99 lakhs.

Apart from that i feel that the comparison bw a sedan and a SUV is unfair at any level.
