Scorpio 2.2 in most probability is coming here next year and is going to be tuned to about 120bhp as per what i heard on the forum. Stick with the Safari.

Well! A what car thread on a car thats not yet officially announced? I think its difficult to predict anything at this stage. Only thing one can sensibly suggest is that if you are in no hurry and would like to check it out anyways then wait else at this price point Safari 2.2 is a good option to look into.

I have test drive safari 2.2 but I find some bad points
1. Gear was not too good as I was looking for
2. Engine power is good when I see on 140Bhp but when I drive it look like 115bhp or less.
But good point is look of safari.

yup safari 2.2vtt is better by far, looking at the specs and all the goodies youre getting with it.
Scorpio is a good vehicle too, but i feel its cramped, not a very good ride too, youll be bouncing in the cabin.

You have sorta answered your questions yourself. You don't have a problem with waiting time. So, wait till Scorpio 2.2 is released, compare the two and buy the one you like. Right now everyone can only speculate about what Scorpio 2.2 would be like.

with Zappo here, too early to predict and advise anyone on the choice.

The best time to ask this question is when both the cars are released and guys here have TD'd both the vehicles. Then this query of yours becomes more valuble. Right now we can do only the specualtion about this.

Rajismine thats bullseye there. I had driven the family Scorpio Goa to Pune and back and believe me it was scary after 100km/hr. I TD'd the 2.2L Dicor yesterday twice and believe me you cant even get scorpio in your thoughts after this. It is just Mind Blowing. Ask the Tuscon chap I wipped on my test drive he was wondering what flew past him at 100km/hr in the city

Did you feel the gear shift problems that the owner of this thread has mentioned?

Also, he says 2.2 is underpowered compared to it's spec on the paper...
Any clue?

Please keep this thread on its course. The thread owner has sought your view on which of the two cars to buy. I do not think there is much one can suggest at this stage but still...

And please, no nitty-gritty questions on the features of a Safari here. You already have a thread for that where people are posting their TD impressions and answering questions on these.

Well...one way to do this is to close this thread till Scorpio 2.2 is actually launched.

I suggest buy new Safari , no need to wait for Scorpio since not much changes done with new Safari, Same case will be with Scorpio.

Safari is far better than Scorpio in every department except for Scorpio is easy to drive in city.

The comment about new Scorpio is just prediction since its not launched yet
