Tata Safari Storme launch on 17th October


     Finally Tata Motors has decided to launch then next generation Safari with a suffix ‘Storme’. Earlier this year at the Auto Expo 2012, Tata Motors had displayed the Safari Storme and couple of spy pictures taken during the TV shoot revealed that vehicle’s launch is around the corner. But Tata Motors has taken more time than expected to launch the much awaited Safari Storme.


     The Safari Storme has new front and rear ends. In the front the headlamps are upward sweeping wrap around type and the grill has been inspired from Land Rover. The spare wheel on the tail gate is removed and put under the vehicle like that in the Aria, for which Tata Motors had to work a bit on the Safari chassis. Apart from the exterior features, a host of interior changes reminds us of the Aria.

     Under the bonnet is the 2.2L ‘VERiCOR diesel engine with dual mass flywheel lifted from Aria which cuts the noise and vibrations. The power output though remains the same but the performance of the engine has been improved largely.

     The Safari Storme will be equipped with most of the latest features seen in the Aria. The Safari Storme will sell alongside the current Safari and will come in LX, EX and VX variants. The VX and ZX variants of the current Safari will be discontinued. The Safari Storme is likely to command a premium of over a lakh rupees than the current model.

     This is a desperate move from Tatas to push the Safari sales. Launched in 1998 along with the Indica, the Safari brand has bought laurels to the company and we feel its high time Tata Motors start thinking of making a truly next generation Safari.

  2. Yes, Safari now has more competitors in the form of Duster, XUV500 and Ertiga. The Safari Storme might not be the right answer from Tatas and that is why we have mentioned Tata should start working on the next generation of Safari....
