One of the first SUVs in the Indian market, the Tata Safari, just got a significant overhaul recently. The Safari Storme, as it's now called, is a completely new product from the ground up, it shares its chassis with the Tata Aria and looks surprisingly similar to the outgoing Safari model.
The Safari comes with a good bit of features and safety kit on board as well, with four-wheel ventilated disc brakes and ABS standard across the range and dual airbags on the top-of-the-line VX trim level.
The Storme comes with a 2.2-litre, 137 bhp engine under the hood, the same one you'll find under the Aria's hood, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission . Power goes to the rear wheels in all but the top-end VX trim level, which comes with the option of a 4x4 system with a shift-on-the-fly mechanism and a limited slip differential on board.
It's always been filled with features, the Safari, but this one adds more to an already long feature list. You get a bluetooth enabled autio system, reverse perking sensors with a display in the rear view mirror and enough power sockets to power your devices too.
Prices for the Storme are as follows:
4X2 LX- Rs 9.95 lakh
4X2 EX Rs 10.77 lakh
4X2 VX- Rs 12.37 lakh
4x4 VX Rs 13.66 lakh
