  1. I am not surprised at Skoda's actions. At the price point they were selling the Laura, the Civic was beating them hollow. Now that they have woken up, lets hope they price the Fabia correctly.
  2. Well to ans Jithesh I actually spoke to two Lady Scorpio drivers and this is what thay had to say. Macho image! Steering very light and very easy to handle in the city. High seating and better view of traffic ahead. Powerful and responsive engine. Lots of respect from other car goers. Attitude!
  3. Great Jithesh, nice knowing people who appreciate old school SUV's. Absolutely spot on with the Scorpio. Let's say its the suited softer version of the jeep.
  4. I dont think the Safari is much of a Offroader, for that matter neither is the Scorpio. For serious off roading u require something like a Gypsy or the more expensive Pajero.
  5. Hopefully the new Scorpio will be out soon and we can have a shootout betn the two in Autocar!
  6. The new Scorpio will have certain advantages over the new Safari with both engines being equal at 2.2L and churning out 140bhp. Scorpio-Smaller size, less wt, turning radius, build quality.
  7. Sierra was a model whose time has come. I think it was based on some Ford model? As usual it suffered from the normal Tata problems of underpowered engine,poor reliability, bad electricals and handling. Dont think u can improve much on such a platform.
  8. Options Ford Flair. Accent. The Esteem is an ex car, though it's slightly aged. 1.3L engine is a gem(same is in Swift).
  9. Both excel in certain areas. Pros Safari-Interior space, seats, ride. Scorpio-Engine performance, Butch looks, reliability. Cons Safari-Reliability, Lacklusture engine, poor interior, quality issues, goes bust after 70,000km. Scorpio-Poor interior space, poor handling, brakes. The new 2.2L Safari if it makes up for these Cons could prove to be a competetor to Scorpio. But the Scorpio Eagle is in the pipeline too.
  10. Right. The Scorpio rolls much more than a Safari. But fitted with 16''alloys and wider 245/70 R16 tyres , the roll was less pronounced.
  11. I've used MRF ZVTS R14 175/70 and Bridgestone on my Corsa. I found MRF ZVTS much better than Bridgestone.

    Lets hope the original Liana comes!
  13. It's too overpriced at the value it offers. Probably will see a price slash later on.
  14. I read on Indiatimes/Wheels that price of new safari is 6.4Lac-7.33Lac(Ex showroom Delhi) Is it?
