Tata Safari DiCOR LX 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 DiCOR LX 4X2 (Diesel) has the DiCOR, i.e., Direct injection COmmon Rail engine with variable turbine technology that is way more powerful than the more common TCIC engines. This indigenously developed engine technology delivers a commendable 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 in Tata cars.

The Safari DiCOR LX 4X2 (Diesel) shares with other Tata Safaris an improved warranty of 2 years or 75, 000 km. Other features include Follow-me-Home headlights that come on when the car is locked with remote control, lumbar support for front seats, completely folding middle row seats, tilt-able and collapsible steering column, central locking and child safety lock, door-open warning, and other awesome improvements. This car has vacuum assisted independent hydraulic type brakes with a ventilated Disc brake at front and Drum brake at the rear. It weighs more than 2000 kg and enhances rider comfort with an independent double wishbone front suspension system with torsion bar, while the rear suspension is 5-link suspension with coil springs.

I wanted to gift my son a car having sturdy and sports looks and thought Tata Safari would be a better option. After giving him the car and getting his review on this car, I thought that I made a wrong decision. Though it can considerably reduce the risk of injury in even of an unfortunate crash due to its study body, then still is not preferable. According to my son ac makes a noise, even clutch makes a sound when changed. It gives fuel efficiency of 10-13 kmph per litre only, so from mileage point og view also its not advisable. There are several other problems which may vary from Safari to Safari.
