Just wondering if the facelift that is being rumored about the Storme is going to be called the ZX or something else? Does anyone have an idea of its launch date or month of launch? Initially it was rumored to be in the market during the festival season, but dint see it coming.
From a gear ratio, I hope they tune the 2nd and the 3rd gear so that the future Storme gives the ooomh feeling while moving out of traffic. Just a wish, since I currently drive a Vento Diesel highline and the way the car takes of from an idle position is remarkable; there is no comparison in this area within the same segment. As I am looking forward to have an SUV, I liked the ruggedness of the Storme and the commanding position it gives. During the test drive, I felt that the vehicle is underpowered and may require some more power. Can anyone tell why the Storme is so heavy “2 TONS “? Are they using cast iron or some thing to build this tank? Hope they make the 160PS engine . Another area I felt it could be improved is the Steering. Too tight and when I took it over some of the potholes, the steering was jerking into the hands. I believe it can be made lighter but not as light as an electronic one. With the engine refinement they have done so far, they can start focusing on steering refinement.
At the end of the day, if I have to shell out 15L and above I better have all the gizmos that are even available in the lower end cars and also TATA should ensure that it is rattle free.
