Tata Safari Storme [2015 - 2020] • Price, Variants & Specifications
Coming from the gang of classic Safaris, the Tata Safari Storme is the latest addition in the range. One of the best models to come out in the last 15 years or so, the 2012 Auto expo saw this SUV to get released. It is going head on with the Mahindra XUV 500, another of the similar models in the market. After the launch of the original Safari in 1998, it had set a new trend in the world of SUVs.

The Safari Storme focuses deeply on the details of the storme rather than the basic design principle. The bumper has been revamped on the front, providing the new safari with a sleeker and rounder look. The design of the grille also has evolved over the time to make it look more contemporary than ever before. The classic square headlamps of Tata have now given away to projector lights. The fog lamps come rounded in shape as here too, the square shape disappears. The storme, for the first time in the history of Safari, provides a smile rather than the humourless straight face of the previous Safaris. The front has a palpable flow across grille and lights. Overall, it reflects an evolution in the design language of Tata that was seen in the Geneva Motor Show in March. The twin-chrome exhausts generate a sporty essence of the car. The rear spoiler surely enhances that. Also, there is another twist in the design. The classic hinging of the rear wheel at the back has now been shifted. It resides under the boot. The side profile comes with a wider look; body cladding and door handles are made grab type. A heavy dose of chrome is induced to generate an upmarket look of the car.
Interiors have certain similarities with the Aria model from Tata. But, the color variants are different and the colour display is omitted. Black-and-cream interiors as a classic combination for SUV color design is here too. The panels come with wooden finish, a perfect choice for a hot country like India. The climate control is now available for the back two rows as new sets of vents are now introduced. They are placed on the roof above the row in the middle. With aids of power windows, steering adjustment and leather sets, the safety is also guaranteed with airbags for both drivers and passenger.
Engine and specifications
The engine comes with a capacity of 2.2 litres and runs on diesel. The Dicor turbo engine comes with a power rating of 140 HP and a torque of 320 Nm. With a four-wheel drive facility and on-the-fly toggle switch, the model looks towards a new comfort for the drivers. Also, disc brakes are now available too for all the wheels. With the incorporation of a revamped gearbox, shifting gears are seamless and fuel efficiency has increased convincingly.
