Since now all the first drive reports about Storme's performance is out,let me compare Storme with rest of competition. NOTE:
My comparision is based upon first drive report of Storme like these: Tata Safari Storme SUV Review – 2012 Road Test Drive | IndianCarsBikes.in
and others like Autocar and motorbeam review etc.This is not final verdict as no one from TAI
moderators had driven it yet,and only they are good enough to call the final verdict about Storme.
Now lets begin our comparo: RIDE QUALITY
According to all the test drive reports of Storme mentioned above,Storme's ride quality is awesome.It smothers all the rough surfaces and gives the much desired carpet ride.
XUV500's ride is little stiff and Scoprio and Fortuner little bouncy.
So Winner of this round= Storme( hands down victor). HANDLING
Now we all know that when it comes to handling unibody cars have a big advantage over Ladder chassis based vehicles as their frame is welded for extra rigidity.
So winner of this round should be XUV5OO,RIGHT!!
Wrong.According to the reviews above,its surprisingly the STORME that trumps all the Mahindras which include Scorpio,Xylo,Bolero,Quanto and surprise surprise it even trumps the soft-roader cheetah
in XUV500.Don't believe me,yes I absolutely understand,well then read this:
| However, the Safari Storme is still a top heavy SUV that does exhibit body roll when pushed hard around corners although this is very well controlled and light years ahead of Mahindra vehicles like the Scorpio or the Xylo and even for that matter, the XUV500. |

So winner of second round= Storme Space
For the first two rows its Storme all the way. Interiors
For the quality according to reviews its Storme. Features
XUV500 is the winner. Looks
It's subjective. Value For Money
It's subjective,but those who want features XUV5OO is perfect vfm
while those want a true blue 4x4 SUV Storme is absolutely perfect.
