Tata Safari 4 x2 LX TCIC (Diesel) MUV Car

The Tata Safari is the first SUV indigenously developed in India. One might consider it a bit obese and massive, but the Safari is a model to reckon with, due to its symbolism with the indigenous effort. At the beginning, it had many features common with the Sumo and an earlier avatar Sierra, but it has come quite of age currently. Currently, the Tatas have introduced the Safari Dicor to replace the Safari, but this rugged SUV is still available in both versions currently.

The petrol version of the Tata Safari is built around the five gear manual transmission that offers 16 V DOHC 486 PL MPFI engine. It is a five door vehicle with a seating capacity of 7 people. Capable of delivering around 10.2 kmpl on the highway and around 6.9 kmpl on the highway, it offers a respectable fuel economy of around 7.6 kmpl.

The diesel version of the Tata Safari is built around a 483 DL turbo charged engine with five speed manual transmission. It offers a slightly higher fuel economy of 12.8 kmpl on the highway and 9.1 kmpl in city driving conditions, offering a respectable overall fuel economy of 9.8 kmpl. It is accompanied with a 65 litre fuel tank, thus reducing the need for frequent refuelling during long journeys.

At the heart of the Tata Safari Dicor is the 2.2 L 16-Valove DOCH VTT DICOR (Direct Injection Common Overhead Rail) which offers around 12.1 kmpl on the highway and around 9.1 kmpl in city driving conditions. Though the fuel economy may sound a bit perturbing, it offers awesome power of 140 PS at 4000 rpm and 320 kg-m at 1700 rpm.

The exteriors of the Safari/Safari Dicor present the great SUV look to this vehicle with chrome finish and long bonnet. The interiors are more refined and definitive that comes with comfy seats and a well-appointed cabin.

The Tata Safari comes with a range of top class features that includes an attractive clock with rear wash-wipe and defogger. Also included in the top end versions of the Safari are a MP3 and VCD player. The Safari is really a spacious car that comes with ample leg room for driver and occupants.

The Safari comes with foldable seats, thus freeing up vital space if you need so for longer journeys. Also come with the Safari height adjustable seat belts, which are really convenient. Furthermore, they can considerably reduce the risk of injury in even of an unfortunate crash. What's more, the seats are height adjustable as well.

The tilt adjustable steering is an added advantage for the sake of convenience and while taking the Safari out on long rides.

The dash seems pretty well designed, but the quality of plastics although improving need some more refinement. For 4WD models, there's a shift on the fly switch, which allows easier 4x4 engagements. Also, the headlamp levelling device allows better view of the roads and terrain in night-driving situations.

The Tata Safari Dicor is available in the following variants

Tata Safari Dicor LX 4x2 Diesel

Tata Safari Dicor EX 4x2 Petrol

Tata Safari Dicor LX 4x4 Petrol

Tata Safari Dicor EX 4x4 Petrol

Tata Safari Dicor VXi 4x2 Petrol

This basic diesel operated model of the Tata Safari SUV focuses on utility and optimizes features against price. It contains all essential features found in other Tata Safari variants including, size, looks, ground clearance, and maneuverability, but has a 483 DL Turbo Charged Inter Cooled engine that is less powerful than DiCOR engines. However, the TCIC engine performs at the same emission standards, and the lack of engine power is balanced out by 100 kg lesser body weight than other Tata Safari variants.

Some important features shared with other Tata Safari cars include electrically adjustable side Rearview mirrors; 3 Position Lumbar Support for front seats, 60:40 split and completely folding middle row seats; Rear wash and wiper; Adjustable light intensity on instrument panel; Digital Trip meter & Tachometer; New gear shift knob; Bumpers and side claddings; Rear Spoiler with brake-lamp, etc.

I live in USA and bought the SAFARI when I was in india for 5 months. I drive HUMMER H3 in US but SAFARI is better then H3. SAFARI's pickup is the only bad part !!!

By I. MURALIDHARAN, 2008-10-22 19:16:46.0

I'm a proud owner of Tata Safari Petrol VXi 4x4 Quartz Black that I bought in June 2007. Though Tata Motors stopped production of this particular model Safari Petrol VXi 4x4 in May 2007, with my special request for this particular model, they agreed and produced One Safari Petrol VXi 4x4 vehicle exclusively for me. I'm absolutely happy with its performance, I have not yet met any problems of any kind till date, no maintenance, no vibration, no sound from anywhere, engine is so quiet & smooth but really powerful. I don't care about fuel efficiency and count on its Kms/ltr. average & its cost, as its engine is 2100cc, 4 Cyls.16 Valves DOHC, MPFI, still it gives around 12 kms on highways is really fuel efficient. Even the 800cc Maruti Alto gives only 18 kms/ltr. compared to that Safari is high fuel efficient. Since the Engine is exclusively a TATA product, no problem for availability of its spares with its Authorized Service Centres. If anyone has any doubt about my version, let them drive a Safari Petrol (not Dicor) and feel its performance and driving pleasure.

If only looks seems to interest you, then go for it. My feeling is that the manufacturer should not have have wasted such a good design on such a vehicle. A closer look at it will reveal that it is made of low quality material.The safari has a 2000 cc turbocharged diesel engine that also powers the sumo turbo. It gives out a maximum power of just 90 bhp. For such a heavy SUV this is not at all sufficient. The engine is very sluggish. The safari may have a lot of luxury features fitted in but an SUV is not for luxury it is for off road driving. The safari has a top speed of about 140 kmph and gives a respectable fuel efficiency of 10-13 kmph per litre. If you think that I am a critic, you’re wrong. At 10 lakhs this SUV gives no value for money. For 6.5 lakhs you can get yourself a much more capable and powerful SUV which happens to be the scorpio from m&m.

Hey Guys I am just back from the WES...Was awesome and great driving the SUV's back there. Not that I am bragging but when I saw the TATA SAFARI, I was instantly transported back to my SUV days in the USA. The Tatas have done a great job of building this RAVE indigenous SUV and it is giving the PRADOs and the PAJEROs and VITARAS the jitters! For the heart of an Indian, this is the SUV that can give it complete satisfaction. Its'got great interiors and a great engine. Personally I feel that the SUV should not be rated for the mileage because they give always low mileage which is necessary looking at the weight and the performance that is expected from them. Personal feeling is that the Tata Safari needs a slightly powerful engine and more refined interiors. There's a lot more on the TATA Safari that will convert this review into an article, but friends, believe me it is a great presentation from the SAFARI team!
