Auto Industries Goa launched the new Safari Storme. The SUV is equipped with a 2.2L VariCOR, 16 valve diesel engine churming out up to 140PS at 4000rpm, along with 320Nm of maximum torque at 1700rpm.
The Safari Storme has been built on the highly fuel efficient DOHC platform. Its 4 wheel drive and ‘ shift- on- fly ’ feature engages it to cruise smoothly over any terrain, gravel, mud, water or snow and its ground clearance of 200mm and limited slip differential ensure enhanced driving ease. Its aggressive sporty looks are enhanced by twin spoke alloy wheels, sporty aerodynamic spoilers and premium clear glass projector headlamps.
The interiors are an electric mix of beige leather, wood and chrome. It has ventilated disc braking on all four wheels and an ABS with EBD to ensure precise braking. A crumple zone and dual SRS airbags are included in the safety features. In case of a collision, the inertia switch automatically cuts off the fuel supply, unlocks all the doors and switches the hazard light on.
The in- car entertainment console features bluetooth and aux- in interfaces which make sure that you stay connected always. A dual AC with intergrated roof- mounted ducts, a centrally- mounted analog clock, a digital odometer and electrical parking assist gives you the extra eyes that you need. [H]
