So it seems that you've driven Storme.Since you are a current Safari owner and also have driven Aria,please answer these questions of mine:
1. How is the bottom end torque of Storme vis-a-vis Dicor and Aria?
2. Which out of these three feel the fastest throughout the rev range?
3. Which has better NVH levels Aria or Storme?
4. Which car handles well at high speeds?
Thanks in advance for your future answers.
Hi Xover, thanks for your interest,
Since you asked me to compare Storme,Dicor and Aria. Aria is a class apart im afraid to compare Aria with other safaris but still Ill try.
Ill merge your 1st and 2nd question, Out of these three STORME looks very Dynamic in character apart from this Both ARIA n STORME are quite smooth when they start pulling, gradually takes command on road, For me ARIA feels quite steady n Storme looks sporty.
When it comes to DICOR its a different story, the key here is time of gear switching, A perfect shift can take you any where,
turbo lag is common in all Diesels but the way it cancels is in the hands of Driver and the chemistry he has with vehicle.
Dicor feels so Sporty until i drove STORME
, Engines turbo roar Noise is reduced in STORME this is also the reason why STORME doesn't look tired.
Both ARIA and STORME seems equally good throughout rev range.
For me ultimately STORME seems more sensible.
3rd Question is only between ARIA n STORME.
When I drove aria at 1st time i was not even aware of the fact that Im cruising at around 130kmph plus mark, I was thinking Im going below 80kmph,
At the halt I Stopped aria and I almost walked out of it without turning off the engine. ARIA was miles away from DICOR n i was very happy, But when i drove STORME it was also a surprise that the turbo roar noise is also nicely canceled from outside(though Aria is not turbo charged (CIIW)).
STORME feels class above no doubt.
4th question is about handling at high speed....
a fully loaded ARIA no doubt, since it equipped with ESP along with ABS
EDB and scoop body, But STORME has unique character here, I was surprised that STORME takes corners very easily and also lane change at high speed.
for given money STORME is a winner.
buddy sorry i couldn't elaborate much, since its almost 12:30 night n Im very much sleepy, we can continue this based on your response.
