The 2015 Safari Storme facelift comes across as a well rounded package with minor updates. Tata has not played around with the design at all and the only visible change is the new grille and this is a good thing because the Safari Storme has massive road presence and pure SUV looks.
Tata has taken customer and media feedback positively and this has resulted in multiple improvements in the cabin. Out goes the bigger old steering wheel that has been replaced by the one seen in the Zest and Bolt. The wheel also houses controls for the audio system. The higher versions also come with a new integrated audio system that looks and sounds better. This has resulted in minor updates to the central console.
Space and comfort is excellent in the first two rows but the Storme continues to suffer from a bad 3rd row - this is best suited for kids as there is lack of headroom and knee room for adults. The Storme also comes without some of the features that are seen in other Rs 10-14 lac products like the Aria and XUV.
The new Storme comes with the same 2.2-litre engine that is now being badged as Varicor. Mawimum power is up by 7% to 150PS though torque remains unchanged. Power delivery is slightly better but the SUV continues to suffer from turbo lag but once on the boil, the Storme can be a quick vehicle for its weight and size.
The VX version continues to come with optional 4x4. Inspite of its height and weight, the Storme is an excellent off-road vehicle. Wheel articulation is good and the low ratio transfer box can help you get out of tricky situations easily.
The new Safari Storme has a lower staring price of Rs 9.9 lac (about 40k less than older version) but the base model (LX) comes without safety aids like ABS and other features (no 3rd row seats too). Pricing for EX and VX remains unchanged.

Space and comfort have always been the high points of the Storme and these remain unchanged. Tata has increased the overall appeal by changing a few things in the new Storme. Step inside the cabin and you notice the new steering wheel that has been borrowed from the Bolt / Zest twins. This is a slightly smaller unit and its placement is also far better than the earlier version. Take your eyes to the central console and you notice the new integrated audio system that supports Bluetooth and sounds far better. However that said, with the Bolt and Zest getting touch screen infotainment systems, this one feels from the era gone by. Tata has improved the overall quality of interiors and the but practically, there are a few sore points - storage spaces arent enough and the Storme doesnt come with features like rear camera, cooled glovebox etc.
There is ample space in the first two rows but the last one is best for kids. The base LX version doesnt get the 3rd row jump seats. Worthy of a mention is that there are both roof mounted as well as floor mounted air-vents for the 2nd row passengers.
Thanks to the height of the car, visibility is excellent but passengers really need to climb inside this SUV.

What we like
Spacious interiors and comfortable seating for 5. Good visibility all around
What we don't like
Lack of features, tight 3rd row best for kid

Tata Safari Storme facelift Front Quarter

The Safari Storme is a big SUV and tremendous road presence. The new facelift version looks identical to the earlier version save for the new grille design.
In terms of numbers, the Storme measures 4655mm in length, 1965mm in width and 1922mm in height. The higher versions ride on 235/70 R16 tyres while the LX gets 15-inch rims.
The Storme is easily recognisable due to its design similarities with the original Safari, a product that was launched in 1998. But even 17 years down the line the design looks great and matches with the overall personality of the SUV

What we like
Looks great - typical SUV lines! Muscular design too.
What we don't like
None really - this is a proper SUV
