Tata Motors is all set to launch its Safari Storme 2012 in India as a prime competitor of Mahindra XUV 500. As per reports, this SUV will be introduced in a couple of weeks. Ever since the Safari Storme was showcased in the 11th Auto Expo, it has been one of the highly awaited models.
The company has decided to position this car above the Tata Safari SUV. Loaded with high off-roading capabilities, the new car will have 4x4 gearbox, which is not present in the XUV 500 of Mahindra. Compared to monocoque body of Mahindra XUV 500, the Tata Safari Storme has been built on a body-on-ladder frame.
The automobile giant has also provided a 2.2 litre of DiCOR common rail turbo diesel engine in the Safari Storme, which is capable of producing peak power of 140 bhp and torque of 320 Nm. For easy gear shift, the engine is mated with G76 Mark II five speed transmission. Interiors of this vehicle are extremely attractive and are designed to provide maximum comfort.
As per information revealed by the company, a relocated space wheel will be available in the 2012 Tata Safari Storme SUV, which will be fitted on the floorpan of the rear section. In spite of providing best off-roading capabilities in the car, the company has decided to keep the price of Tata Safari Storme SUV less than its competitor Mahindra XUV 500.
