San Motors is an Indian manufacturer trying to establish itself in the auto-sector across the globe. It mainly focuses on designing and developing two-seater sports cars (often termed as coupe) as a very few vehicles are available in this segment in Indian auto industry. San Motors has launched its latest venture in the form of San Storm, a two-seater sports car. It has raised quite an eyebrows with this launch and has received a big thumbs up from the auto-enthusiasts. San Storm is being offered with five premium colors which are Viper Red, Mellow Yellow, Star Silver, Nightfire Red, and Magic Black. All these colors add elegance to the dynamic exteriors, hence heating up the appearance quotient. Furthermore, body color bumpers and body color imported mirrors are like icing on the cake. Additionally, its appearance is also enhanced by the super sporty Alloy Wheels. San Storm comes equipped with a 1.2-litre Renault DF7 petrol engine which also has MPFI as fuel supply system. It has four cylinders and eight valves and it performs considerably well by generating a power output of 60bhp at 5250rpm and a peak torque of 95Nm at 2500rpm. It is coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission gear box in order to provide better performance. However, it may not accelerate as much but still it can run on high speeds without much hassle.
Braking and handling section has been provided special attention so that driveability cannot be affected in any way. Ventilated disc with piston sliding calipers front brakes and rear drum brakes have been incorporated in such a manner that even if applied suddenly, there is no crisis and vehicle stops immediately. Rack and Pinion, Semi Collapsible Steering Column grace this wonderful coupe and it turns very smoothly and effortlessly on the narrow turns. San Storm is coupled with good suspension system which works very well throughout the journey. Front suspension is Independent double wishbone, coil over shocks, anti roll bar whereas the rear suspension is Trailing link, coil over shocks, antiroll bar. Both these suspensions carry out their work efficiently and there is no scope of any kind of complaint. Aluminum alloy wheels of size 5J X 13 further consolidate the shade of sportiness. Seat belts with warning light are indulged as the primary safety features for both the occupants. Apart from this, Front Crash Protection beam & Integral FRP Body with metal reinforcements are there to protect the occupants in any case of mis happenings. As this is not much costlier, hence the premium safety features like ABS, EBD, and Airbags doesn't feature in it. San Storm comes with a fuel tank capacity of 36 litres which is adequate.
The interior cabin lacks a bit of plushness as there is not much to praise about. Air-Conditioner is attached but CD/DVD player is missing. Dashboard has been given a leather look and surprisingly, Tachometer is present. Presence of Remote Fuel Release and Remote Boot Release features is appreciable and they greatly helps in reducing the human efforts. There is enough space to put your small belongings in the car in the form of Moulded Door Pads with Magazine Pockets. So, basically the thing is that it may not be as plush or luxurious as some of the other coupes, but it surely is quite spacious and the execution of spacing is really outstanding. In all, San Storm is a decent two-seater sports car and its pricing makes it a interesting buy. It just lacks premium features which are, by any means, not expectable in such a budget-friendly car. Rest of the base necessary features are being offered with it, in order to stay up to the stature of Sports Car.
