Added: (Tue Apr 03 2012)
India’s first Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), Tata Safari has always been amongst the top favourites of everyone since its first model, which was brought out in the year 1998. It has so far won million hearts with its masculine looks, off-road skills and impressive performance.
Stepping ahead with time, Tata Motors has recently introduced the generation next SUV called Tata Safari Storme at 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.
Tata Safari Storme is the facelift version of Tata Safari offering immense pleasure of smooth and practical drive on rough Indian roads. The true masculine design and powerful engine are the top advantages of this vehicle. Having owned both two wheel (2WD) and four wheel drive option (4WD), improvised inner and outer look and technological enhancement, the all new Safari Storme proves to be a perfect blend of style and performance. The given ESOF (Electronic shift on the fly) enables the vehicle to shift from 2WD to 4WD even on the move which is again a sign of its powerfulness.
Work on exterior has been done superbly, which has helped this version to be sportier than its siblings, an all new grill, chrome tipped twin exhausts, bonnet’s power bulge, projector headlamps, aerodynamic spoilers and better tailgate adds more to distinctness.
The Safari Storme comes powered with a 2.2 litre 16-valve DICOR (Direct Injection Common Rail) diesel engine matted with five speed manual transmission that develops maximum power of 140bhp at 4000rpm and torque of 320Nm at 1700rpm.
The dual mass fly-wheel of engine results in minimum vibration, noise and harshness. Its elder sibling ‘Tata Safari’ has been graced with a 2179cc, 2.0 litre diesel engine with VTT (Variable Turbine Technology) offering impressive power and torque value. The new Tata Safari Storme offers better performance than its predecessor with the mileage of 11kmpl on urban roads and 15kmpl on highway.
The fascinating & robust look of Tata Safari Storme has great resemblance to the Tata Safari but still there is a fresh visual essence creating distinction from the base model. The high-class attitude reflects from its projector headlamps powered with Xenon, fog lamps, sporty body colored bumper, turn indicators, new square tail lamps, panoramic roof, rear defogger & rear wiper, electric windows at both the sides, body colored door handles, tinted glasses, the new pair of alloy wheels, dual exhaust and other designing attributes.
It has more refined exterior measurement of 4650mm (length) x 1918mm (width) x 1925mm (height) with the kerb weight of 2650 kgs and ground clearance of 200mm along with turning radius of 5.4 meters. The interior of both the siblings provides ultimate sense of comfort but the extra high-tech sophistications of new Tata Safari Storme again lead in the race.
This new born baby has got climate control air conditioning unit with two AC vents, wide purposeful dashboard with plenty of faux wood, cup holders & various storage compartments, sporty new meter dials, two trip meter, electronic switches, tachometer with an arm rest for driver, white backlight dial, multimedia player, leather covered seats and elegant upholstery.
This seven-seater SUV has ample passenger and cargo space. However, the limited 981 litre boot space with lack of remote boot system may make you annoy. The advanced safety measure of the brand new Tata Safari Storme takeover its sibling that include Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Anti Lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), parking sensor, fog lamps, dual airbags, reverse guide system and more.
The superior technical sophistications, design and performance of all new Tata Safari Storme SUV makes it a great deal in comparison to its own sibling.
