2015 Tata Safari Storme facelift is the first update to the SUV in three years.

The flagship Tata SUV has undergone subtle cosmetic and functional changes, good enough to call it an upgrade. 2015 Tata Safari Storme is based on the same hydro-formed chassis that underpins the outgoing model as well as Tata Aria MPV. It has received no noteworthy change.

Among the few updates given to the new Safari Storme facelift, are new honeycomb grille and air-dam section, both inspired by Land Rover Freelander 2. Front fender gets Varicor badging, signifying the updated engine.

The power plant is mildly tweaked to produce a few PS extra (10 to be precise), for max power to be rated at 150 PS @ 4,000 rpm, while peak torque remains the same at 320 Nm between 1,700 and 2,700 rpm. Gearbox is also the same 5-speed transmission unit, with no offer of automatic unit. One thing what we didn’t expect, is the use of new self adjusting clutch, with 260 mm diameter fly wheel, which promises extended life. No improvement in handling and dynamics of the SUV seem to have been done, despite the bump in power.

There are a few key points to be covered in the interiors of 2015 Safari Storme. The steering wheel is unplugged and swapped for Zest/Bolt inspired unit, with embedded audio controls. It is said to offer better ergonomics, apart from styling inside the cockpit. Speaking of which, new trims, materials and colours are used inside the cabin, including dashboard, seats and door panels, to give a fresh aura inside the updated SUV.

Further, experience inside a Safari Storme is said to be largely improved, courtesy of new Harman entertainment unit replacing the older Kenwood set. It takes USB and AUX-in inputs through ports beneath the system on the centre console, Bluetooth as well. The clock unit on current Safari Storme has been removed, and the 4WD selector knob on VX 4×4 variant has been transferred from centre tunnel to centre console.
