I am confused to choose between 2011 Scorpio (with 2.2 mHawk engine) and 2011 Safari (with 2.2 DiCOR 16 valve engine), please advice.

It depends on your need and preference, if your preference is for power then Tata Safari is better than Scorpio as its 2.2 liter 6 Valve DOHC VTT DiCOR engine discharges maximum power and torque of 138 bhp @ 4000 rpm and 320 Nm @ 7000 rpm respectively, compare to 120 bhp @ 4000 rpm and 280 Nm @ 1800 rpm of Mahindra Scorpio’s 2.2 liter mHawk engine. When it comes to acceleration, Safari is better than Scorpio. Talking about the dimensions, Safari is little lengthier and wider than Scorpio.
And if your preference is for mileage and handling then go for Scorpio as the ARAI certified mileage of Scorpio is 16.3 kmpl while of Safari is 13.9 kmpl. As per user reviews Scorpio handles better than the Safari.
So, I advise you to take a test drive of both and choose as per your need, preference and driving comfort.
