In profile, the car gets prominent lower body black plastic cladding and chrome finished wing mirrors with integrated turn signals. Other accessories include off-road tyres, window visors, plastic door handles and foot boards.

A rear tow hitch completes the customization. Save for the black fabric upholstery the interior pretty much continues in stock condition.

      3. I believe there is a lot riding on the facelifted Storme that’s coming next year.

      4. Govind A Nair says:

        Yes right.. A harmon Kardon sysytem is being fitted in,central captain seats,150 ps updated engine n improved interiors..

      5. Anand Reddy says:

        Yeap this might be a limited edition sale for this version. Or may be add up as a variatn along with upcoming facelift version with much refined interiors and increased power

      6. True. I don’t think the power has ever been a problem. The issue is with the features. Tata Motors has to bring something disruptive into this segment. I see the XUV500 Hybrid, currently under development, doing just that.
