This feature is very much required for when youíve stopped for a couple of seconds, for instance to drop someone or load some shopping bags.
Isn't there a dedicated button even on the driver's console? If not that, shouldn't all the doors be unlocked if you just unlock the driver's door?

There is no dedicated button. Unlocking the driver side door does not unlock any other door.

Thank you. I wish something could be done about it though. Leaving the door open is not a comfortable thing to do in the long run.

This is what I could find in the manual.
Next time I drive, I would take extra notice of how the doors lock/unlock works for passenger doors.

The driver side switch acts as central locking/unlocking button. Also when the vehicle is turned off, all the doors are unlocked. This behavior is same as other Tata cars.

Had booked a top end safari from wasan motors chembur here in Mumbai,

Booked it on 5th april and eventually cancelled the booking yesterday, Pathetic response from the dealer in almost all aspects along with the waiting period,

Initially i was told the car would be delivered in 15 days but just got to know yesterday after a month that it would take another 15 days!

I had test driven the top end AT version and went ahead and booked it the same day.

Lovely AT Tranny and engine combo with interior quality much better than my 2015 XUV, Everyone loved the panoramic sunroof!

However omission of AWD was shocking!

Decided to drop the car itself only because of the waiting periods, Wanted a SUV urgently so went ahead with the used car route.

I can 100% confirm this is not correct. Driver's door lock/unlock does control the central lock, as expected. It's same as on My WagonR as well so it's quite a common design and nothing exotic.
If this is not how it's working on your Safari it should be looked at by SC.

Thank you everyone. I tried it again today and it worked. I will be checking on all the other doors too to make sure there isnít any issue.

Unsure if Mahindra has fixed the boat-like ride experience from the current-gen xuv500 too, no doubt it'll score a 4-5 star rating at launch but are you going to base your purchase decision on that factor alone? What about the ride quality and seating comfort for all passengers?
Boy, I read the XUV niggles thread and is slightly shaken, esp with the rusting issue. Though the thread was started in 2015 but some issues are still persistent. Can a XUV owner confirm that Mahindra has fixed most issues?

Despite paying close to 28L (Safari or upcoming XUV), one does not seem to get a world class car.

OT: It may not be a 28L car. Ofcourse, not to say that it should be any less reliable.

This post is ~2 yrs old but gives a good idea about how much the manufacturer gets out of 28L on-road cost.

So I earn Rs. 36lakhs, pay Rs.9 lakhs as IT, then I end up having Rs27 lakhs ro pay for my crysta. At this stage I've paid 30% tax.

Next the exshowroom price of this car is Rs.21 lakhs of which 50% is tax( sales tax, GST etc etc tax) ie Rs.10.5lakhs.

Road tax amounts to Rs 4.5lakhs.

So in the end for a vehicle with its On- road price being Rs.27lakhs.

Total taxes paid are- Income tax-Rs.9 lakhs + all other indirect taxes Rs.10.5 lakhs + Road tax Rs 4.5lakhs. Totally amounting to Rs 24 lakhs.................Please note this amount does not include taxes paid by the component suppliers and insurance GST( both together I guess they would contribute to 5% or more of the total cost of vehicle).

So in the end after earning Rs.36 lakhs I pay Rs.24lakhs in taxes and then buy a car whose actual worth is Rs.12Lakhs. We are paying taxes to the tune of anywhere between 66.66% to 72% .Shockked:

We are been looted in broad day light by the government.

Someone on my street picked up this stunner in white. I could only gawk at her beauty, early this morning. Inside, the seats are pristine white. That's a downer. If only they offered that elegant camel brown, (as an option), I'm sure there will be many more takers!

I remember Tata Harrier BS6 version having provision for Blue solution (urea) , which needs to be refilled every time.
Does Tata Safari which is also BS6 compliant, need this Blue solution.

All BS 6 diesel vehicles are equipped with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) that uses DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) additive commercially called AdBlue (32.5% urea, balance deionized water) to lower the concentration of NOx emissions.
