Look and Style
Recently I got a chance to undergo the test drive of new Tata Sumo Gold MUV. Though the exteriors of Tata Sumo Gold are not that interesting but still its design catches the eye with its masculine and tough stance. I got attracted with its simple looks and I believe that it always remains on the top list for those who believe that beauty lies in simplicity.

I am a huge fan of the Tata Sumo and also a proud owner of the top end model Tata Sumo Gold GX. This SUV has one of the sturdiest body structures in comparison with any other vehicle in its competition and it can take you over any road in the country, effortlessly. I travel a lot on the highways and also into many villages, where generally the roads are not proper. But, Tata Sumo Gold has not given me any kind of trouble till date and has always been dependable. The best part of this vehicle is read more 17
Look and Style, medium Comfort, poor Pickup, very good Mileage, Best Features. CR4 engine is its heart Needs to improve comfort, every tata sumo has poor built quality, you can observe door gaps at every door, more at driver side, even you fingers upto palm insert from out side, air and dust, noise comes in running Overall Experience not bad.
Tata’s age-old workhorse, the Sumo has been soldiering on for close to two and half decades. Begs the question, is the good old SUV still a relevant buy in today's day and age? Let’s take a quick look -
Things We Like in Sumo
Big 182mm ground clearance gives you the flexibility of taking it off-road.
Power steering makes it easier to maneuver inside the city.
Rugged chassis can take years of abuse. Makes it value for money in the long run.
Things We Don't Like in Sumo
Bouncy ride at triple digit speeds. Rear seat occupants will feel uneasy over long distances.
Third row is cramped for adults. Best suited to kids.
Stand Out Features
Roof-mounted second row AC vents are unique to the Sumo in its class.
The Sumo does have its share of rough edges which become even more apparent when you consider it in the same breath as modern compact SUVs.
"If you need a reliable workhorse for the farmhouse and occasionally ferry people around, the big Tata will function without a hiccup."
Sumo has been one of the oldest SUVs in the country and it is still going strong. Born in the early 90s and still on sale, the Sumo has seen several avatars, and there was even the second-generation Grande, which didn?t do that well. But the original Sumo is doing some good numbers and recently it saw an upgrade under the HorizoNext campaign. We share our experience of this SUV with you.
