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.
