Engine is now retuned to make 10 PS more.

As reported earlier, cosmetic changes on the outside can easily go unnoticed as they come in the form of a honeycomb grille and airdam structure. Further, the fenders get a 'VariCOR' badge.
Changes on the inside are much more perceptible thanks to the small-diameter, Zest-borrowed three-spoke multifunction steering wheel. The dashboard of the Storme facelift gets Silver accents for a more grown up look, whereas the pre-facelift model gets a faux-wood finish.
Over to the center console, Tata has now equipped the Storme with a Harman-made music system capable of CD/MP3/AUX-in/Bluetooth, which also doubles up for the parking sensor display. New trim and seat fabrics, and repositioning of the 4WD dial from the center tunnel to the center console are other changes observed on the Storme facelift.
Under the hood, the Storme facelift continues to be powered by the 2.2-liter four-cylinder VariCOR diesel engine as its predecessor, but where the older model made 140 PS the facelift generates 150 PS owing to a different power map. The torque, at 320 Nm, remains unchanged.
