Sumo Gold Verdict
The Sumo Gold is Tata’s trusty workhorse that doesn’t really cut it in this day and age. It’s high-riding, big on the inside and has seating
The Sumo Gold is Tata’s trusty workhorse that doesn’t really cut it in this day and age. It’s high-riding, big on the inside and has seating for up to nine occupants but that’s about it. It’s old, outdated and you will find better alternatives for the price.
Sumo Gold Review
There were few changes made to the Sumo and nothing drastic that created a stir. Overall, it still looks boxy with a sturdy build. Right now the Spacio and the Victa platforms that are on offer differ only in terms of load-carrying capacity and the grille whereas the other changes cannot be viewed with the naked eye. The Spacio is a 10-seater, and has a 3.0l engine that churns out 68bhp at 2800rpm whereas the Victa with its many variants has a 2.0l engine pumping out 90bhp at 2800rpm. Both run on diesel.
The ride quality is good and so is the handling but the considerable amount of body roll limits the handling. The stability and poise at high speeds is excellent. The interior space has been the strongest quality in the Sumo since its inception. The interiors have been revamped and standards have been upped a notch to match up with the interiors. The mileage figures are 10kpl on average.
