Tata Motors has launched a refresh version of its popular MUV Sumo, called Sumo Gold. The Sumo Gold gets a slightly updated look and new powertrains. The company unveiled the facelift of the Sumo in Pune and has offered the utility vehicle with two engines – the CR4 diesel and the TCIC diesel.
The two engine options are a BS-4 compliant CR4 Turbo motor that churns out 84bhp and 25.5kgm of torque and, according to Tata, delivers a fuel economy of 14.7kpl. The second engine option is a BS-3 compliant 3-litre DI motor that is good for 69bhp at 3,000rpm and 23kgm of torque at 1000 to 2000rpm.
Exterior styling tweaks include a mildly tweaked front grille, headlamps and fog-lamps while the interior gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel and updated switches for HVAC and power windows. Tata also claims plenty of work having being done to the suspension for a more pliant ride quality even though the suspension set up remains the same, coil springs at front and leaf springs at the rear. On the rear, the bumper is new and so are reflectors on the bumper.
The Tata Sumo comes with an outstanding 36 month, 100,000 kilometer warranty for non commercial buyers while cabbies get a 2 year, 75,000 km warranty. The new Sumo Gold is available in four variants – GX, EX, LX and CX. This model will compete with the recently launched facelifted Bolero in the entry level SUV segment.
