Look and Style
I think the looks, style, fit and finish of the new Safari Storme is miles ahead of the previous Safari Dicor. I am really impressed with it and it's really huge when it comes to size. It is higher than the Fortuner, longer than the XUV and wider than the Pajero. I think when it comes to size, the Safari Strome gets full points. When it comes to style, I think the Land Rover-ish look has really made the Safari look a class above. Again, looks and styling are completely depend read more 222
If you want to have a stylish SUV at an affordable price, then you have Tata Safari Storme. Stands and moves like a stallion, the beast attracts everyone's eyes on the road due to its styling and nice exterior look. I bought the Storme in the end 2013, used in Coonoor till mid-2015 and using it in Bhubaneswar. My family with a little pug had all the comforts in travelling in this car and never felt road sickness on long travels and in fact, it was enjoyable all the time. Ride quality is on p read more 1
Though Safari Storme has a fine external appearance, it really doesn't look as good as its rivals such as the Scorpio or Xylo. The car is equipped with a fantastic engine which delivers power in an impressive way. The most impressive thing about the car is its suspension and ride quality. You won't really feel the bumps of the roads and this SUV really offers you a wonderful and comfortable ride. But, the interiors feels more outdated than other cars. It could have been equipped with a t read more 3
Carrying forward the Safari legacy isn’t exactly an easy task. Naturally, when Tata chose to refresh the brute, it opted for a safe ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix’ approach. The Storme is still easily recognizable as a Safari, but it gets a set of added features, a newer, more efficient engine and more. What’s the latest avatar of one of India’s most loved SUVs like? Let’s take a look -

No automatic transmission variant on offer

Stand Out Features
Road presence is practically unmatched. People make way for the Safari!
The Varicor400 motor generates a class-leading 400Nm of torque.
Tata’s workhorse is beginning to show its age. Yes, it does offer a healthy blend of performance, space and off-road ability. But, it also misses out on a lot of creature comforts.
"It misses out on a lot of creature comforts"
That said, there are better-specced alternatives, such as the Mahindra Scorpio or even compact SUVs such as the Renault Duster and the Hyundai Creta that are priced on par. Reasons to buy the Safari Storme includes its go-anywhere nature, its ability to command respect and its cult status among auto enthusiasts.
When Tata offered the Safari Storme for a long-term review, I was a little sceptical. The reasons were obvious – too big for a crowded city like Delhi, low fuel efficiency and some reliability doubts with the nameplate (thanks to my past experience). But after living with it for almost 800 kilometres in aroun...
The Safari moniker, is a bit of a legend, isn't it, India's first indigenously developed SUV has come a long way since it first debuted in 1998.
