The first and obvious change is the new 3-spoke steering wheel of a similar design to the Zest and Bolt. Tata has ditched the oversized four-spoke steering wheel for a shorter diameter unit, which also gets integrated controls for the music system.

Up next is the center console which now gets a silver insert, and a new music system capable of Bluetooth, AUX-in and CD/MP3. Tata has also opted for light beige inserts for the dashboard, where the current model features a faux-wood finish. The same goes for the gearlever which is pasted with a silver insert.

    That was sarcasm my friend.

    They will be lucky if they sell dozens per month. Have you seen the numbers for the Tata Aria. What makes you think that Storme Mk II will be any better in the marketplace. Tata certainly does not want to do better.

    The 4 lakh rupee Bolt has a touch screen music system but someone in charge of the refresh though that including it in the Storme would cannibalize the Aria or upcoming Hexa. Who buys the Aria anyway.

    If there are no consequences to bad decisions and substandard work, then why should anyone improve. Has anyone been fired for the Nano debacle or the Vista/Manza sales failure or even the fact that someone greenlit a complete refresh of the internals/chassis/suspension of the Safari but kept the body panels exactly the same.

    Look at all Tata products after the original Indica, they look like something even a blind mother would have difficultly in expressing her love for. I don’t believe for a second that executives at Tata don’t have eyes or an aesthetic sense. It is just that there are no consequences to their actions so they are phoning it in. Go to their plants and you will see Hyundais, Hondas and Marutis till the eye can see. That is a fair indicator to the quality of their product.

    And you are correct, for some one who roots for these jokers to succeed, it has become farcical and a comedy of errors.

    Awesome Changes. I see Tata has turned things around.
    1. Plastic Aluminum trim instead of plastic Wood trim
    2. Steering wheel from Bolt instead of from Indica v2.
    I am sure Tata will now sell dozens of these every month.
