My Frind ! You are looking for too much as you cant mix weekend drive and city drive in a same SUV. Weekend driving nothing to match Safari 2.2 GX model at that price as this SUV is also called a poor man's Pajero or Landcruiser, it feels great when you drive one but as far as city driving is concerned turning radius a big problem in Safari as compared to Scorpio. But I would suggest you to go in for a Safari as scorpio is toy SUV you dont feel as you are driving an SUV when you are behind the wheels of a Scorpio. I have a 3ltr Dicor which cruises easily at 150- 160Km when required.

without dought the safari 2.2 it is far beyond competition when it comes to having the feel of a suv .for regular use i always use the safari. 72000 kms in 13 months without a single problem ,although i also use my Range Rover but the next best thing is my safari2.2 ive driven 1800 kms in two days going upto 160kmph on clear streches between Allahabad and varansi.

Hi,
In the budget range mentioned Tata Safari makes a good selection for its great combination of power,interior space and comfort.Mahindra Scorpio is also great performance SUV. To select one Safari makes a better selection on account of power and overall features.
