Hillnrains that truly is a very interesting bit you have mentioned about MUV being altered to more of an SUV form.

But if it happens as said above what about the Storme,both in terms of pricing as well as positioning?

Why cant TATA copy Discovery (pre 2015) for the outside form? Will be a refreshing change for an Indian SUV and also make it a little wider.

@moralfibre: does it really make sense to go for a Safari rather than storme. The Safari is available only in 4x2 guise, but at mouth watering prices. In the real world, what are the differences? I read the comparisions on carwale.com, etc., but makes no real sense to me. Both look similar but storme is supposed to be legion ahead in ride and handling and a also fit and finish.

Last I heard, the launch was scheduled for mid-March. Will follow up again in a couple of days to check if things are still on track.

4.) Tata has upped the offer on the Existing Storme to Rs 1L now
5.) More pics from the Facelift grill storme are attached and the guy who saw this in person saw a complete black dashboard rather than the existing dual tone on the EX Model, besides a fully taped middle console on the dash Plus a new Steering similar to Zest

Besides, nothing wrong in keeping fingers crossed, though I did upgraded from a 3L to a Storme last month itself :-)
Looks like its getting hotter and closer to the launch. Fingers crossed. This photo has surfaced on a few other forums as well. I would say it should be around May/ June, not later than that. But I am indeed praying.

Oh Shucks. There should have been watermark. It's not right to take it straight from teambhp website.
So that means, the wait is continuing. :(

Scoop: Updated Tata Safari Storme in the offing? EDIT: Now launched-imag0224.jpg


Seen in a building I visited yesterday. There was a sticker on the rear glass that said " LET 320 NM with Mark II gearbox"

Is this info of any interest to all Storme fans??

Thanks John Doe, By any chance did you peek inside to see if third row seats are front facing?

Oops, I did not look inside properly. I am not too much into SUVs:-(

The more I think about it, I don't remember seeing a 3rd row at all. Maybe the seat s were folded up, like current Stormes.

BTW, what does LET 320 NM mean? I mean the LET part.

The new Tata Safari Storme does not have front facing third row seats, it has a new 6-speed gearbox and a new engine churning out 160BHP and the central console now has an integrated music system, note- it's not a 2DIN, it's just an integrated music system without touch screen display. The front grille has a new design, the STORME lettering on the chrome strip is now in Black.

You are right. You can see the grabhandle on the lefthand side near the tail gate. This is used to climb inside the SUV.

On the other hand, any pics of the new dashboard?

Have seen the new dashboard, only the centre console is changed to accommodate the new HU, its got a brushed metal trim all round, I did not like the look as much, even the clock is now missing.
