It does not look a million miles from the Tata safari First Drive: Tata Safari Storme - CarWale


Confession - a lot of times I will read the opinions of my peers before voting, 73GTVJim usually has his screwed on the right way, Keithboy has 'odd' days and in general terms Shant is a good indicator of the wrong way to vote. In the case of this particular fridge white fright however, it was straight to the 'Seriously Uncool' button.

It is awful and pointless.

The styling makes it look like a posh Kia.

'odd days'?

It has to be said I rarely disagree with Jim and frequently disagree with just about everyone else. This particular vehicle is just another megabuck 4x4 with nothing to separate it from all the other megabuck 4x4s. It'll be a far worse road car than a big Merc saloon and is a lot more vulgar and flashy but people will buy it because it's the most expensive one they do in the same way as they buy convertibles but never take the top down on them. Uncool.

This abomination is based on the Jeep Compass and looks like its made from mdf. I did not realise there was potential to do worse than that Jeep. But they've pulled it out of the box !

It isn't. It is a wood effect foil laminated into clear plastic, usually made by a German co called Kurz, possibly out of their Malaysian or Chinese plant rather than Germany. Same tech as we used to make 50 years ago for the foil laminate on TV sets. My employer exited that market way back, probably a mistake. They've got better, but its still mass produced and fake.

You sure? it's based on the C-class as far as I know.
It wasn't engineered for RHD so it's not on the UKs list; whether one likes it or not, that's a massive oversight by MB when that market is getting so big.

I could be wrong. But I certainly believed it when told they were related. Interesting if its not . This thing just goes to show the power of that 3pointed star!
