About TATA SAFARI STORME

The Safari Storme is the new avatar of the Safari and this is technically the second generation of the Safari that was launched in India since 1998. The exterior styling is similar to the outgoing version and even the dimensions are the same. However, the chassis of the Safari is brand new as it is much lighter than the first generation Safari. This enhances the performance, ride quality and even the handling characteristics.

The interiors of the Tata Safari Storme do look similar to the older Safari, but all the panels are new. A massive difference in insulation can be felt, the moment you step inside the car and shut the door. Something that makes you feel insulated and secure from the outside world. The Safari has been one of the most spacious SUVs, and with no change in dimensions the Storme has ample of space in the front and the second row when you consider the headroom or kneeroom. Also, three people can sit in the second row abreast without any squeezing. One of the best USPs of the Safari has been its space, and Tata has retained that quality.

The 2.2 litre engine from the Aria also powers the new Storme. So, the VARiCOR engine has now replaced the DiCOR technology as this is far more refined. This engine is much more refined and has very low NVH levels. The power delivery is more linear and even the drivability is improved. Neither does the harass sound intrude into the cabin.

The biggest change on the Safari Storme is the new platform, which was developed for the Aria and it is known as the X2 platform. The hydroform chassis improves the rigidity and also cuts the extra flab. This has made a huge difference in the ride and handling characteristics of the Storme. Safari always had a good ride and the Storme is no different.

Our Verdict

With the Safari Storme, Tata has definitely taken the vehicle makeover in the best possible direction. The Safari was the first indigenously built SUVs in India and over time, it has gotten many facelifts. But with the JLR acquisition and Tata’s access to world-class R&D, the Safari Storme showcases the thoughtful updates very well. It’s a lighter, more fuel-efficient and EuroNCAP standardized vehicle. It comes with 2 drive trims and a load of safety features. The exteriors are dynamic and bold and interiors are nice and neat. This SUV is definitely an affordable, value for money off-roader and carries the strong backing of the Tata household.
