Tata Safari DiCOR EX 4x2 (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

The Tata Safari Ex 4X2 (Diesel) is powered by the DiCOR engine that delivers peak power of 140 PS and a maximum torque of 320 NM at a lower emission and fuel consumption level than similarly powerful engines used earlier by Tata. This big and beautiful SUV has two-tone beige interiors with beige fabric seats matched by a cubic printed central console, a grey & chrome front grill, alloy wheel rims, stylized roof rails, and body colored bumpers & side claddings.

This 2040 kg juggernaut has extra features like electrically operated remote fuel flap, key-less entry, and a Parking car locator where the roof lights can be turned on by remote. Other features that set apart this model from lower-end Tata Safari models are height adjustable driver seat; electrical rear-glass demister, analog clock on center console, tubeless tyres, engine immobilizer, and clear lens fog lamps. An on-board CD MP3 player tops off the entire package.

Dear readers i have been driving safaris since last seven years and I have been a proud owner of 2 such beautiful and reliable vehicles.Contrary to the claims of many I have never faced any major maintainence problem with the veh. I am very fond of highway driving and I have driven to almost every corner of Gujarat, Maharashtra, MP and Rajasthan. The maximum distance I travelled in a day was 975 kms. I feel no fatigue or tiredness while driving my safari moreover the position of the driver is so commanding that it gives you a clear and nice view of the road, no other SUV can match this. This vehicle is basically a cruiser, you cannot expect it to be peppy and ideal for zipping past city traffic but once you hit a highway and you realise its worth. You drive it once and you become addicted, like me.
