One of the most iconic SUVs in our country comes from Indian manufacturer Tata Motors with the name Safari. The Safari has a cult following in the country owing to an unmatchable feeling of sitting on top of the world. A successful product back in the past, the current generation Safari Storme has not been doing good in the SUV segment.

In order to make it an even compelling buy, Tata has decided to give the Safari Storme facelift more power and torque. Under the hood will be the same 2.2-litre diesel engine that will churn out 156PS of maximum power and a huge 400 Nm of twisting force. Power will be sent to the rear and all four wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission.

Tata may even equip the updated Safari Storme with better tyres for added levels of grip in addition to 17-inch alloy wheels. A limited slip differential might even be offered as standard on the SUV. One of the reasons for the SUV to lose out against its rivals is its lack-lusture interiors. As a result, Tata is expected to include a touchscreen infotainment system that will surely make it a sweeter deal. The upcoming Tata Safari Storme model should carry a special badging in order to differentiate the more powerful vehicle against its standard counterpart.

Tata has been losing out in the utility segment for a while now. The Safari Storme hasn't really been able to stick to its main rival, Mahindra Scorpio, in terms of sales. Hence, Tata has to come up with a concrete and improved strategy to make their sole SUV a much better product in the segment. At present, the Tata Safari Storme is available in 4 variants, in which one offers an AWD drivetrain. Prices (ex-showroom, Delhi) are as follows:

Safari Storme LX 4x2 : Rs. 9.99 lakh
Safari Storme EX 4x2 : Rs. 11.61 lakh
Safari Storme VX 4x2 : Rs. 13.02 lakh
Safari Storme VX 4x4 : Rs. 14.35 lakh
