I am surprised at the last point above .. slot in to 1st, let go of the clutch, and the vehicle will pull .. doesnt need any CRDE / DiCor engine. A simple TD will do that.

Although the mhawk engine is only 120 people fine the Scorpio peppier only because of the shorter gearing. The draw back though is that at 120+ speeds, the Storme will run at a higher rpm than the older 2.2 VVTI safari.

I think the more important reason for the percieved peppiness is the lighter weight of the Scorp / XUV, as compared to the Safari twins.

No it won't. The 5th gear has been made taller(Check out the screenshot in the review)

Does anyone know if there is a hood deflector offered for the Storme - either by Tata Motors (as for the Safari Dicor) or by some aftermarket brand (like Carry Boy)? I tried looking but cannot find one anywhere.

@Avinash, TML gives either 3M or Weurth. Check prices outside at 3M outlets & decide. You could take the anti-rust.

Which T.AS.S ? and which location ?

Sun films are banned and cops are going after vehicles with the lightest of films. Hence I would suggest you refrain from installing those
If you need privacy or want to keep sun out, may I suggest roller curtains that roll with window glass. Many companies are making it, but I would suggest P8, probably is Korean, and set of four costs around 4200 in Jaipur.
