Pros : The whole package makes you smile

Cons : Engine noise is very audible when revved hard.


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 depended on an individual. But I personally think Tata has done a good job.

Comfort wide, I think there is no need to say anything. It has the best ride quality when compared to any car below 35 lakhs. The pickup is not bad, but not the best in its class, but SUVs are not made for racing. If you want to race, buy a sedan. 

Mileage - I have noted the following figures with AC on the full time.

Lowest mileage in the city = 11.5kmpl Highest in the city = 13.5kmpl Highway = up to 16.5kmpl The best part of this car is that it is raw and not made for the feature hungry. I think that the some of the best features are in it. The power windows and power folding mirrors work well, Bluetooth stereo acts perfectly for the handsfree phone. The keyless entry - the first click unlocks only the driver's door and the second click unlocks the other 3. One aspect that Tata needs to improve is the engine noise. It is very audible when revved hard. Rest is perfect for my liking.  I am a very lucky guy to have his dream come true so early. This car has completely changed my perception about Tata.

    Own a Safari from 1988 and is still in excellent condition. Once you have the comfort of a Safari, nothing like it. Still waiting impatiently for a 6 gear one (which will give atleast 15 kmpl on the highway putting the XUV 500 in the shade) with GPS, climate control, steering mounted audio controls (giving the SUV a million dollar look), You have the know how. Just think of it. No other SUV will be able to ever match the new Storme. Give this a thought. Every 2nd SUV will be the new Storme. Cheers! Viva!

    The first Tata Safari was produced in 1998 and great to learn that you owned one from 1988. KUDOS

    Thank you for displaying my comment above. As it is taking too long in coming out with the superb model, pls. make it an automatic with the gear shift on the dash board. This not only gives it comfort but also an ample space between driver and tulip. Design this area better than the XUV 500. Make sure the cup holders have the hardened rubber fitted an inch below the top surface to hold the water bottle, cup etc. (This is a very minor thing but secures the cup in the holder). Make sure of the cruise control too. The Toyota Sienna which has come out a couple of years ago has a 8 speed gear automatic and the price too is very reasonable with all the additional safety features. Just give all this a thought. People are willing to buy. Just give the value for money. Believe me. Only Tata's can do it. Cheers. VIVA.
