Safari Storme Off-Roading
  • Now Tata Safari Storme was one of the most affordable SUVs in the Indian market.

  • And this engine is coupled with a 6-Speed manual gearbox.
  • Tata Safari Storme was available on 2 Wheel Drive and 4 Wheel Drive
  • My favorite was the 4WD version because of its off-road capability.
