Posted on: Apr 16, 2015 - 4:34pm IST
Launch expected in the coming weeks.
The Tata Safari Storme facelift is expected to have a market launch anytime now, as these images, likely snapped in a dealer yard, show.
Exterior changes on the Storme facelift are rather subtle as they’re reserved to a new Honeycomb grille and airdam. Further, the fenders of the SUV are expected to come with a ‘Varicor400’ badge, highlighting the improved torque of the 2.2-liter diesel engine.
Inside, the Storme facelift gets the new 3-spoke steering wheel seen on modern Tata vehicles like the Zest and Bolt. The steering unit also gets integrated controls for the new music system, which is reported to be a Harman-sourced unit.
The center console gets a silver finish, but more importantly, Tata has now included a 2-DIN music system capable of CD/MP3/Radio/Aux/USB and iPod connectivity.
Coming to the engine, the 2.2-liter four-cylinder unit is reportedly retuned to produce 160 PS and 400 Nm of torque, a 20 PS and 80 Nm increase over the current model. The transmission though continues to be a 5-speed manual unit.
Tata is expected to carry out a market launch in the coming weeks.
Rivals: Mahindra Scorpio, Renault Duster
