Expert Test Drive Review
Step inside and the changes are apparent quickly. The cabin is airy and the beige look helps no doubt. The beige seats are matched with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome highlighted gear knob, wood-accented dashboard and door trims, a new instrument cluster, chrome-lined speaker grills and inside door handles endow the interiors with opulence. The front seats are huge and spacious and dual AC with separate integrated roof-mounted blower keeps the entire cabin cool. The quality and feel of the cabin has imporved no doubt. The space though is the same as ever and it is massive and this is one area where the Safari Storme blows everything away. The rear seat is airy and the headroom and legroom are excellent. The front seats are great too and munching long distances behind the wheel will be easy.There are enough places around to keep your bottles, glasses, walltes and mobiles - practicality of the Safari Storme can hardly be matched in the segment.
The Safari Storme has a massive boot space of 981 litres with the last row seats folded
The instruments in the new Safari Storme are simple but easy to read
Safari Storme has a short gearlever with faux leather finish
Safari Storme has cup holders in all variants
The new generation Tata Safari Storme brings in some freshness and performance to the Safari, true to its 4WD pedigree, with a host of technologies and new exteriors and interiors. At the front is a new grill, new projector headlamps and a ‘power bulge’ on the bonnet. These changes certainly impart a feel of the Range Rover SUV offerings and hence works well. Side on, you also notice the new flared wheel arches which help in adding muscle to the design. New chrome-tipped twin exhausts(we simply love the design), the tailgate in an all-new guise and aerodynamic spoilers distinguish the rear, with the spare tyre placed under the vehicle.There are new color options as well and on the whole, the Storme is sold in seven color options. Alloy wheels are standard on the VX versions and all the trim levels come with 235/70 R16 tyres.

From the side the new Safari Storme looks butch and has presence
Safari Storme has very good ground Clearance of 200mm
The motor in the Safari Storme is a 2.2L 16-valve common rail (DiCOR, but Tata calls it VariCOR) engine (140 PS power; 320 Nm torque) with a variable geometry turbo, mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. Electronic shift-on-the-fly (ESOF) enables shifting from 2WD to 4WD even on the move. It has a turning circle radius of 5.4 metres, 200 mm ground clearance, electrically operated ORVMs and a reverse parking system. The 5-speed manual gearbox has certainly seen improvements and feels much better.Those used to the Aria or the old Safari will relate to this engine easily. It develops the same power and torque but feels a tad better in response. Above 1500rpm, there is a lot grunt on offer and you can easily keep pace with faster moving cars as well. Torque is the key factor and this one has loads of it. At high speeds of over 100km/h, the Storme feels pretty relaxed with another 50-60km/h in store. Infact, this engine makes it a very good highway cruiser as well.

The handling of the Safari Storme is much better now thanks to the Aria based chassis - there is body roll no doubt but not enough to scare you like the older version. The less weight means hurl one into corners and the control is much better and it feels planted.For safety, there are 4-channel ABS with EBD, disc brakes on all wheels, a new rack-and-pinion steering system, rigid ladder frame construction with hydro-formed long members, crumple zones, side intrusion beams on all doors, collapsible steering column, dual SRS airbags, inertia switch and an auto engine immobiliser. ESP is sorely missed here.
Handling Braking & Safety Details

In safety the Safari Storme has collapsible steering column, dual SRS airbags, inertia switch and an auto engine immobiliser
Safari Storme has ABS in all variants
Safari Storme has traction control
The front suspension has independent, double wishbone and coil springs while the rear has non-independent, 5-link with coil springs. The ride is one thing that we loved about the old one and we are glad to say that it remains that way. It is plush and soaks up bad roads with ease.A huge change is the use of Aria's chassis in the Storme - it completely transforms the way the vehicle handles and behaves at high speeds. We drove it in the hilly terrain of Lavasa city and found the vehicle to have a new nature. It doesnt really scare the driver or the occupants and once you get used to the initial body roll, you can drive this beast pretty fast.Tata has also left no stone un-turned to make sure the Storme is the most capable off-road in its segment. Be it wheel articulation or its ability to climb up the steepest of paths, the Storme is simply brilliant.
