Re: Revamped Tata Sumo Victa in Pipeline (Sumo Gold)

Better to stop Grande and sell this vehicle instead,It will do more of wonders in cab world as its preferred by them especially for good space and roomier to accommodate more of passengers
Vishwas buddy have you ever taken a ride in Grande, it is one heck of a car and much better than Victa/gold, slowly but surely Indians would appreciate Grande because of its presence, improved ride on all rows, shortest turning radius and good fuel efficiency,taxi market be damned.

1)Vishwas buddy have you ever taken a ride in Grande, it is one heck of a car and much better than Victa/gold, slowly but surely Indians would 2)appreciate Grande because of its presence, improved ride on all rows, shortest turning radius and good fuel efficiency,taxi market be damned.
1)No,I don't want to ride that crap-looking steel box.Xylo is way better than this thing.

2)Regarding the interior space i think Xylo is better as the length is more than Grande

3)People appreciating Road presence? Never,instead they would omit it if they hear or have a first look at it.

The Victa was better looking and this model will sell more IMO.
And Taxi Market is growing well in our city,so there will be a demand for these type of cars.

Re: Revamped Tata Sumo Victa in Pipeline (Sumo Gold)

A fresh info about Sumo Gold guys, it uses 3.0 lt cr4 engine which produces 80 bhp of power and 250 nm of torque, Mahindra Bolero better watch out this time around, Gold looks like a serious threat to its crown.

Can you please tell me the source? And this engine you say 3.0lt is a new one? or the same engine which came with the sumo spacio(guess im right)without cr4.

Price of Sumo Gold GX=6,86,000

Price of top end Bolero=6,82,000

Now i think Sumo will be taken mostly by taxi markets and Bolero for Personal use because Sumo can squeeze 10-12 ppl but Bolero ony 7 ppl,but the Real SUV looks are in Bolero and not this Sumo,it feels dated.

Re: Revamped Tata Sumo Victa in Pipeline (Sumo Gold)

Not worth creating a new thread, therefore posting the news here. Tata Motors is running a free service camp exclusively for Sumo owners.

Re: Revamped Tata Sumo Victa in Pipeline (Sumo Gold)

According to a Tata insider Grande and Victa's production has been stopped by tata.They are completely concentrating on GOLD which according to them has sold around 10,000 units till launch and being received quite well by the market.They expect demand of GOLD to even increase in future.Now Grande/Victa are only built to order.

Xylo's front may not be the best but it is certainly better than Grande's rear!

2)Regarding the interior space i think Xylo is better as the length is more than Grande
i cant agree with you more. It is lesser and also cramped than Xylo. Thats a main reason why my dad went for Xylo.

3)People appreciating Road presence? Never,instead they would omit it if they hear or have a first look at it.
Yup, not much of road presence even though its a big vehicle.

The Victa was better looking and this model will sell more IMO.
And Taxi Market is growing well in our city,so there will be a demand for these type of cars.
my replies in bold.
even i saw a lot of Sumo Gold during my stay in India. Probably its doing well.

Re: Revamped Tata Sumo Victa in Pipeline (Sumo Gold)

Just coming back from Bokaro Steel City, it seems that Sumo Gold has taken over entire Jharkhand.Saw around 100 Gold mostly maroon colour.Also talked to a Gold owner during our lunch in a Punjabi dhaba.The guy had bought top end GOLD GX Di and was just returning from famous Rajrappa temple after doing mandatory puja of his car.He was really impressed with this Sumo in terms of initial performance.Couldn't give me any idea about mileage as the vehicle had done only 200 odd kms.According to him he bought it over Bolero for personal use.Lets see what happens in future!

Re: Revamped Tata Sumo Victa in Pipeline (Sumo Gold)

Sumo's biggest rival the bolero has constantly evolved with time, whereas the sumo has had nothing but loads of variants with different Body graphics!!

The Grande might have been successful initially if Tata had not named it "SUMO" grande.

If i was in the UV market with around 7 lakhs in my pocket, then the bolero would surely have been my pick.

Yes i am standing for Xylo,i didn't mention Xylo was bad.

Guess it's the typo error.

Yep agree with that.

That would also be a reason with people(white board) omitting it for the SUMO badge
