Sure, the Storme is not that identical to the older one.
A new cheese-grater grille and headlamps bring about the biggest change (but I wonder what happens to the Tata family grille?).
A power bulge on the hood conveys that there is a more powerful motor inside.
At the back, the spare wheel has disappeared below the vehicle, while twin tail-pipes hint at more power on offer.
The bigger changes are on the inside which has been thoroughly cleaned up. It is less cluttered now - so much so that it almost looks bare, but it's not.
The quality of the materials used has gone several notches up, while the promise of the Safari interior room has not been compromised.
The seats are comfortable, but some additional under-thigh support would be welcome.
To borrow from the Safari's British SUV siblings, the Storme offers a 'command' driving position. This makes it easy for you to know where you are headed and where you are placing your front wheels - it's of unparalleled help while off-roading.
Yes, it comes with shift-on-the-fly 4x4 capability.
