Tata to introduce a more luxurious version of the Safari Storme- SCOOP

Tata has been testing the Safari Storme for a good three to four years and it is finally out in the market. Considering the fact, that it is a 4x4, everything on the car is designed to bear the off-roading that the vehicle does. At the moment, even the top-of-the line Safari Storme gets a single-DIN aftermarket music system.
Tata is working on the Safari Storme's new interior additions, which will include a new 2-DIN music system, and it also get a touchscreen system that will offer navigation as well. Tata is testing the reliability of these products, and we can expect these products to be offered on the Safari Storme by mid-2013, this will help Tata compete with something like the XUV500, on a vehicle that is a better off-roader too.
The Safari Storme is in its 2.2-litre 16-valve common rail (VariCOR) engine (138bhp power; 320Nm 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. With 5.4m of turning radius, Tata claims it to be best-in-class, 200 mm ground clearance, electrically operated ORVMs and a reverse parking system makes driving convenient.
