Eagerly awaiting the pricing details of the Storme !!
Rightly said. The seat design and finishing looks top class. Not sure if the GXp with 4x4 will be offered in India. or for that matter, if they will offer 4x4 in any version other than the VX model. For a customer like me, Tata should offer ABS and 4x4 on all models. I will get everything else installed in a phased manner

Hope the black interiors theme is offered atleast in the Lx because thats all i would be able to afford ( assuming the aggresive pricing theory )

Noticed the front facing 3rd row seats in the 'Italy' version. Why can't we have them here..even as an option.?!

Which picture are you referring to? The last one shows that there are no front facing seats, the arrangement is the same as that of what is offered in India.

Please check again, it has the same third row seats like the Indian one (seen clearly in one of the pics) and not front facing seats.

And yeah, the black interiors do look cool.

These are indeed front facing seats. Please note the large headrests. These have figured earlier on a related thread

This looks so much brute . The intake just above the drivers head , the instant diagnostic tool , to hear always hows the engine breathing. Just keep revving to hear the intake roar and complain of poor mileage

Front facing seats are welcome. I am really hoping Tata manages to give a good product and sell few of them especially after duds like Aria and Sumo grande.

Price it right Tata.

After looking at this picture I have feeling that base model (whatever it is LXa/p) will be available in gray cladding.

Thanks,

I doubt that. The picture also shows alloy wheels . If they are saving bucks on painting the cladding, they could have skipped the alloys as well. anyway I hope the Storme comes with alloys + body coloured cladding from the base model itself.

by the way - the Storme looks the least attractive from this angle !
