                                                  • Tata Sumo Gold Expert Review

                                                    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.
