Speaking of upgrades, the Astor Black Storm offers a few cosmetic changes over the regular Astor, both inside and out. The Astor Black Storm gets a blacked out front grille and black treatment for the alloy wheels, roof rails, side door cladding and Astor emblem. Furthermore, it offers red brake callipers and ‘Black Storm’ badging on the front fenders.
On the inside, the Astor Black Storm offers an all-black dashboard. The AC vent surrounds are finished in red and the stitching on the dashboard and door cards are also finished in red. Furthermore, it offers dark grey seats with red stitching. In terms of features, the Astor Black Storm offers a full-colour LCD instrument cluster, heated outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs), 4 JBL speakers, panoramic sunroof and Bluetooth-enabled digital key. Since the Black Storm edition is based on the Astor Smart variant, it doesn’t offer the Level-2 ADAS features the Astor Savvy is popular for.
