Facelifted Sumo Grande to be called Movus?

Facelifted Sumo Grande to be called Movus?

Post Tata Motors’ HorizonNext event in July, we knew what was coming from the Tata stable. But cars like the Sumo Grande and the Aria were omitted from the list. Later, a facelifted Sumo Grande was spotted testing in Pimpri in September and now, an automobile website reports that the name of this facelifted version will be the ‘Movus’.

The name, if it becomes a reality, will mean that it will move from being looked upon as a more premium variant of Sumo and will be vying for an independent slot in the line-up. 

The facelifted car gets significant styling updates and seems to be longer but retains the same overall design. Changes to the SUV include a revised grille, a front bumper applique, blacked out window lines running the length of the vehicle and new reflectors on the tail lamps.

Previously, there was no information available on the oily bits, but now speculation is that the facilifted car will use the engine carried over from the Grande, albeit, with a few tweaks to the output. The motor is a 2.2-litre four-cylinder DICOR unit, producing 118bhp of power and 250Nm of torque in the current Grande and it comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. 

Apart from this, the Tata Movus will come with improved handling in the form of better clutch and brakes leading the car to have a better life. Tata is focussed on reducing the weight of the MUV which will in turn increase the efficiency. The steering feel and turning radius will also be improved.

Currently, the Sumo Grande retails at around Rs 8 lakh for the entry-level BS 4 variant and the top-of-the-line GX trim comes for above Rs 9 lakh. We can expect the ‘Movus’ to come with a slight price hike. Also as stated by the website,  the company is looking to reveal the car at the upcoming Auto Expo 2014, but there is no official confirmation as yet.
