Hi Lakshmipathi. Moving from a hard core SUV to a small car will be troublesome. But then you will have a maintenance free new small car to deal with. While with this, you can expect mechanical repairs once a while. Here you need to stick to your Safari only for emotional reasons, while practicality says that you should go for new. You can even consider increasing you budget and opting for lesser driven SUVs instead.
