After looking at the buzz that Safari Storme has created in the net world and how well it has been accepted by both its customers as well as auto media,I think Tata should do something similar to Grande.
Here are some of things they can do in order to make it successful in our market:
1.X2 PLatform:Just like Storme,move the body to much more modern X2 chassis: We have seen how much wonders this move has done to make Storme a competent handler both on and off road.
2. New interiors: The current interiors of Grande absolutely suck and look pathetic.Also they don't gel too well with the stylish exteriors.
All new simple yet elegant Storme like interiors will do it alot of good,me thinks.
3. Safety features: Current Grande has got literally no safety features,which is truly unacceptable in this age and time.So inclusion of a'bags and ABS
is a must.
4. New coil spring suspension: Tata should get rid of obsolete leaf spring suspension from Grande ASAP
and introduce Storme like coil springs at the rear and dual wishbones at the front.
5. A new BRAND: Drop the name Sumo/Grande for good and name it something different and sporty like "Thunder' or 'hurricane',lol.
So folks do you agree with my above assumptions?
