Pros : Spacious inside, tough exteriors, comfortable to drive

Cons : Mileage should be a bit more

I own a Tata Safari and it has been 5 years since I had bought this SUV. At that time there weren't many SUVs on road and Safari was the best. Even after so many years, when there has been a cluster of SUV's on road, my Tata safari has always had a niche for itself. There were times when I was planing to buy a new car but the performance and comfort of my Tata safari is unprecedented. The best part of this car is that you can enjoy your ride in any sort of driving conditions, be it mountains, plains, highways, deserts etc. Its extremely tough looking from outside and unbelievably spacious from inside. You would love going on long-drives after you own a Safari, I do. It is so comfortable to sit and drive that one doesn't feel the jerks and pit holes on the road. The inner cabin has some extra lights when compared to the other cars in the segment.I mean if you would go out to compare other cars in the segment, Tata safari would score the highest. Once I had made a trip to a hill-station and traveled all through my Tata Safari. Coincidentally, it rained all though the way, but, you won't believe I felt so safe in the car that I actually enjoyed the journey. The car remains very stable even at the speed of 120kmph. It is pretty interesting that cars on road seems to be scared of you while you are driving in your Tata Safari, that perhaps is a big reason that till date my car has not got a single scratch. Safari has got amazing road-clearance as the vehicle has not hit any projections on the road till date. If you guys are planning to buy a SUV, seriously trust me Tata Safari is absolutely awesome and makes you feel as if you are ruling the road.

    yadav |17 Jan,2011 01:38:33 AM

    JP Gupta |22 Apr,2011 10:32:43 PM

    Dont go just hearing.. speak to person who actually owns it.. I have an acquaintance who bought a Safari 5 years back. He is so happy with Safari that he bought another one for his office use 6 months back. I myself own a Safari and I m happy with it.

  • Shabeer |01 Jun,2010 02:22:10 AM

    Safari is simply the best SUV in India. Some people think as it is Indian made it is not the best. It is very good in perfomance, and finish.

  • milind |14 Aug,2010 05:26:04 PM

    well, this is the one of the model which can be compared to the international market. Unfortunately this was failed in Desert ?? 4X4 should do well in desert but it sinks soon mainly because of it tyres and rim size. power to weight ratio is not good. Approximate 3000 kg car has such small engine ?? it does not pull so much. It might be best in India compare to all other Indian manufactured cars. but I need to admit it??s not full 4X4 car. I am also planning to buy since I have no other choice. Mahindra cars is too bulky or low ground clearance. Diesel engines are more noisy compare to TATA but more reliable. Regards, Milind Coutinho.

  • N D SHARMA |28 Sep,2010 10:40:42 AM

    What is fuel consumption, what about maintanance and is there any noise from doors or anywhere else after 3 years?

    ashutosh |22 Feb,2013 12:22:25 PM

    fule consumption about 10kmpl noise starts afer 3 hrs of you buying it maintainence is highly costly

  • hira |09 Oct,2010 06:01:20 PM

  • hk patil |02 Dec,2010 12:10:51 PM

    pl. specify which one is best either new Tata safari or xylo

    ashutosh |22 Feb,2013 12:23:52 PM


    UTKARSH CHAUDHARY |01 Apr,2015 06:52:37 PM

    Bro xylo falls into the category of SUV segment

  • CarDekho Team |03 Dec,2010 10:18:48 AM

    The Xylo is a MUV while the Safari is a SUV, take your own pick as both are cars meant for different activities. Thanks, CarDekho Team

  • Ash |06 Jan,2011 09:13:47 PM

    Mate 5yrs is a long time ago and possibly without the dicor engine too so your review is a bit irrelevant to this page and im afraid utterly useless!

    The new Safari has much improved engine and the maintainability cost is much less as compared to old safari engine. My friend has 2.0 yrs old 2.2vtt engine. As per him the service is done after 15k KMS at 6k.

  • navneet sharma |28 May,2011 11:56:36 PM

  • venkatesan |01 Dec,2011 05:56:01 PM

    i am planning to buy a Safari Dicor. But these above impressions make little bit confused. Anyhow I like the look and other features of Safari. But some persons threatened me that Safari is only meant for Politicians and which may not be maintained by ordinary persons. It is also said service and spares for Safari is very hard all over India and very cost also.Please clear my doubts. I want detailed report about mileage, maintenance cost,etc., as early as possible. Can a salaried couple getting nearly 80000/-PM maintain Safari Dicor. Expecting your reply eagerly.

  • akshay |21 Jan,2012 09:58:00 AM

  • sunjay rana |20 Dec,2012 11:13:30 AM

    I have my own TATA Safari 2.2 vtt EX model 2008. It is fantastic SUV for indian roads. The maintenance cost of the SUV is zero . Just you have to assure that the service must be on time of your SUV and i am sure you will never get any problem in your Tata Safari. The pick up is very good then other SUV i.e Scorpio and innova or even fortuner. The body look of your SUV is dashing and if your SUV stands in front of innova, fortune r,bmw your musculus body will never get you down in front of all cars. Over all when you have handle the TATA SAFARI you can never think about another one in your life. if any one want to clarify any question of safari you may talk or write to me at any time i hope i will satisfied about your quarries.
