Tata Safari

Tata safari is one of the first Utility Vehicles which were introduced in the country long before the imported vehicles came to India. Few things which interested the buyers initially were the afFordable price tag which was associated with the vehicle along with the brand name of Tata. The cars evoked lot of interest initially as the car was a symbol of adventure and freedom however with the advent of superior Sport Utility Vehicles from outside and indigenously produced vehicles like the Scorpio among others, the safari seems to have fallen out of favour but with the launch of the safari Dicor the company hopes a turnaround of its fortunes.
