The engine powering the VX Storme is the same used on the EX, a 2.2-liter four-cylinder motor outputting 140 PS at 4,000 rpm and 320 Nm of torque between 1,700-2,700 rpm. The Storme VX will be positioned as a Safari which promotes comfort, according to Mr. Arora.
Additional features in the Storme VX compared to the EX variant include dual front airbags, ABS, steering mounted audio controls, foglights, alloy wheels, parking sensors, leather seats and an entertainment system with a Bluetooth compatibility.
