Default In a budget of 10-15 Lacs which NEW SUV?

As all of my posts i want performance as top priority, but this car being for my dad needs to have goodies.
I had thought of the safari 3.0 but to my utter surprise its not for sale now(new).
Second hand are not in for consideration as dad wont agree to if.
His requirements are :-
Strong looks
Desiel
Confort for even sleeping.
I have gone out of touch with SUVs but would prefer no scorpios but im open to options.

I recommend Innova for that budget. Very few can match their overall experience.

My dad's first priority is the innova due to the toyota badge, but i personly dont like the looks, its not 'manly' enough for me. I would prefer a car like the safari, endevour, scorpio, some thing like a jeep.
Pajero and Fortuner are real nice but a little out of reach for now.

Unfortunately then Innova and Safari are the only options left out in this case.
I think Endy will be above the budget.
I will suggest Innova as its extremely comfortable and dependable vehicle.

If innova and safari would be my only options i would like to stick with the qualis as its almost as good as the innova and better than the qualis.
Are there no new SUVs comming in as it isnt so important to buy a new SUV but it is quite important to buy one which we would be satisfied for 5 years.

+1 on that. Innova matches one of the best performance on the road.

If you donot want to take it offroad, slush, mud etc. Then innova with good interiors will do a good job for you.

In the 10-15 Lakh budget you only have the Safari or the Scorpio. Safari has more leg space than the Scorpio. have a TD and decide for yourself.

BTW how much is the Grand Vitara new one?

This info was for a colleague of mine who wants a 4x4 SUV but is not able to justify his need.

go for Safari Dicor VX 2.2 VTT. If you have a good Tata dealer around who you can trust, go for it !!

I own one and the experience has been good.

IMHO Innova is not a SUV !!

If you are genuinely looking for the "SUV" badge : your only option is Safari (for the given price bracket)

Safari VX only seems to fit in bill. However, you may want to upgrade interiors a bit if it aren't upto your taste..

Though 4x4 will be an icing on cake, but as the car ain't meant to enter slush and mud anyhow you can opt for 2w drive.

the Scorpio meets your criteria perfectly except for the being able to sleep comfortably factor.

The Xylo has seats configured in a way where you can stretch your legs and lie down, however it's not very macho!(compared to the Scorpio anyway)

You could consider a Gypsy......I dont know if they manufacture those anymore.
