the last two years the Tata Safari has been undergoing strenuous tests and the
latest buzz we hear about the torture is to make the safari evolve into a new
suv re born as the Tata Merlin. The car
will be made from an improvised build of the Aria. The car is expected to be
donned with safety mechanisms like ESP (Electronic Stability Program), side
airbags and traction control. Working
under the Codename Safari18, the Tata Merlin is been the news for the last two
years and there just seems to be no stopping to the hype surrounding this
revamped suv. However the good news is that the car is now finally going to see
the light of the day and will be launched in a few days as you read this
On the nostalgic side however the Tata Safari will still be available in production and will still continue to enthrall off road enthusiasts. The company will run both the models along side. The Tata Merlin will come at a more premium price than the existing Safari. It is expected that Tata Merlin will come in both the drive options of 2WD and 4WD versions and the starting price can be expected to be priced around Rs. 12 lakh.
Tata Merlin is going to have a completely revamped novel head lamps, tail
lights and fog lamps. The bumpers at both the ends and the dual mass fly wheel
will also be a never seen before. The car will have the same gear transmission
as the Aria which will allow for a smoother drive and gear shifts. The
interiors are also going to completely revamped with humungous space inside the
cabin. The car will also leave the Safari behind in terms of the ride and
handling. Other comfort features include the advanced HVAC system (expected to
be a dual-zone climate control system). The safety front will be taken car by
the SRS airbags, ABS, EBD, ESP and BA. The car will be available in colors of
Mountain Green, Passion Red, Artic White, Pearl White, Light Gold, Cycus Grey,
Quartz Black, Artic Silver and Steel Blue. The wheels will be bigger and alloy
type for the new Merlin. The ORVMs will have in built indicators. The rear
looks of the car clearly seems a rip off the Land Rover Discovery.
The insides of the Tata Merlin will be generous on the cabin space and will be a beta version in terms of the interior quality and the type of materials put in them. The car will have a new central console with entertainment options like the music system and automatic climate control system etc all built in on the steering controls. Then there are the common features like power windows, power steering, remote central locking, defogger, rear wiper/washer, cruise control, GPS navigation system to make yourself totally indulged with the Merlin. However the Tata Merlin in order to keep the cost factor down will have a lot of options inspired from the Tata Aria.
