TATA Safari Storme

Tata Safari has been a symbol of masculinity in terms of looks. In the new generation of the SUV, that character trait is still maintained. The competition has intensified, with favorites like the Mahindra XUV500 & Renault Duster recording over 4,000 monthly shipments. But yet, The Storme captures the market with a wide margin.
