Tata Motors, has launched the much awaited powerful version of Safari Storme , VARICOR 400 in India priced from INR 13.52 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Essentially a more powerful version of the standard Safari Storme and the re-tuned VARICOR engine offers increased power and 25% more power than the standard model and will be offered only with the top-of-the-line VX variant.
The new Safari Storme VARICOR 400, comes with the same 2.2-litre 16-valve DOHC VTT VARICOR diesel engine that has been tuned to produce a maximum power output of 156 PS and a peak torque of 400 Nm, which is the major highlight of the new SUV. The engine comes mated to an improved 6-speed manual transmission, instead of the standard 5-speed gearbox, with 4X2 configuration.
With the increased power and torque coupled with the new improved 6-speed transmission, the Tata Safari Storme can now do a 0-60 kmph sprint in mere 5.2 seconds and reach 100 kmph speed from standstill in 12.8 seconds. The increased agility now makes the new Safari Storme one of the most powerful SUVs in its class.
