I am not sure still if the battle has been decided, I suggest if it is not why not retake the test drives in all new Safari & other as well. Others like Honda city, All new Scorpio etc.

I'm frankly amazed that people have 10 lac INR to spend and still don't know what they want/expect from their purchase........the cars you are considering have completely opposed personalities and are designed for contrasting conditions. I think you need to sit down, make a note of your type of usage, mileage, priorities etc. and decide if you need a sedan or an SUV.....

I think you are talking absolute garbage.....for your information, Honda sells in more Eurpoean countries than Tata and are hence likely to have a better understanding of structures & crashworthiness. A brand with such a great reputation, they are highly unlikely to "sacrifice safety". Please avoid such comments to avoid making a fool of yourself!

3. Safari I guess will be more secure than ANHC, depending on the type of crash. Safari can roll over easily as compare to ANHC. So basically you need to change the way you drive.
Good, valid point....totally agree. Safari susceptable to roll due to its inherrently high centre of gravity

In the end, a test drive is probably the best way to nail it.....

My dear friend, I would advice you to read the thread from the beginning. It is not that we don't know what to buy, but the fact that I wanted one where as my wifey wanted another car. I had my own reasons to arrive at my selection and my wifey had hers.
The whole point of the thread was to help me win this battle :-) and not to help me decide what car to buy.
