Few days back when I was looking for something that would fit perfectly in the category of 'rough and tough', Tata Sumo Grande caught my attention. One look at this muscular SUV, and I had eyes for nothing else. It just doesn't seem to be contained in any one segment. Grande has the grand features that one usually expects in a luxury vehicle. It has extremely roomy and comfy interiors that can easily accommodate 7 people. And if you are willing to adjust a bit, even 9 of you can be seated quite comfortably in its 3 rows. There's no way that anyone can complain about not having ample space to stretch their legs or getting their heads bumped whenever they try to shift around. Plus, its got this amazing Alpine music system with this classy wood-work for the console that comes in very handy when the city traffic is driving me mad. Luxury on the inside and sturdy on the outside. The tough curves and mighty build of Sumo Grande is all what an SUV fan wants. A good ground clearance and the typical sports utility traits like the front grille, the massive tyres and the straight and bold cuts, everything about it gives off a strong sporty feel. As far as the performance is concerned, Tata Sumo Grande has a brilliant suspension and as I have been ensured by my dealer, it is going to give me a mileage of 12kmpl on the highways. As for the city roads, my experience with it marks the mileage at 9kmpl. Now, pickup for Grande is not so impressive and the speed maniacs are not going to be much satisfied with it. But it works decently for the easy drivers like myself taking about 20 seconds to go from a 0-100 kmph. Another little problem that needs to be worked upon is the engine noise. It might seem trivial to some but it can be really annoying to others (sometimes).
Yes i agree with you, i also bought Grande in July 12 its GX fully loaded. Music system offered is a basic without any AUX can't connect USB. Gear Shift is also little trouble some specially between 1-3 at times it gets jammed and gear lever reverses to neutral on its own while shifting. Engine noise yes started but after my first service... and service centre people have no answer/ solution Sad part. Let's see i am going to write to T.M and see if they can help which will not happen i am sure.
