Tata Safari Storme Varicor 400 Launched at INR 13.25 lacs

5

Tata Safari Storme, the name that brings in a whole lot of cult followers under one single brand name. There have been loyalists who have bought all the generations of the Tata Safari just because they’ve loved the car dearly. The Storme was officially showcased at the Auto Expo 2012 and was expected to be launched in early 2012 but Tata wanted to be thorough with the car before it hit the roads and tested the car vigorously around the country. Later though, the Storme was launched in both 2 Wheel Drive (2WD) and 4 Wheel Drive (4WD) variants, and even gave it a minor nip and tuck in the first half of 2015. However, the Storme has been unable to emulate the success of the previous models. Not the one to give up on its legendary warhorse, Tata has now launched a more powerful version of the SUV and you can find all the details on the new Tata Safari Storme Varicor 400 in our rather comprehensive post here.

  1. We Safari lovers are just longing for one with a GPS, 7″ touch screen, cruise control, automatic drive, minimum 15 km/ltr, etc. etc. I have written you too many letters in the past few years. I still have the very 1st model of Tata Safari. People used to crowd round the Safari anywhere I parked it. It is stilll in an immaculate condition and am proud of it. There are 6 cars in my house and the Safari still reigns though some of them are new and automatic.

  2. This is Ceasar Fernandes back again. Take my advise. Th Varicor 400 looks really impressive. Equip it with the flwg: GPS, 7″ touch screen, cruise control, automatic drive – which is the bare minimum for 2016 and a SUV costing 15 Lakhs & above. Raise the price if you have to. Believe me. No other SUV in this price range will ever sell. Do not waste time. Just capture the market.
