Tata motors today announced the commencement of sales of its latest
passenger vehicle offering, the Sumo Grande, in the domestic market.
Sumo Grande, unveiled at the Auto Expo in January this year, will be
commercially available from dealerships located in metros and select
large cities from February 22, 2008, and progressively across the
country in a phased manner.
The new Sumo Grande combines the
looks of an SUV with the comforts of a family car. It has been
specifically designed to satisfy the needs of city customers in the
areas of driveability, maneuverability and fuel efficiency. The Sumo
Grande sports an all new styling with clean chiselled looks mating with
flowing contours. The tall aggressive stance is complimented by large
clear headlamps, and a cutaway air dam in the front. The clean rear
look, with the spare wheel tucked under the body, is accentuated by
attractive tail lights and a chrome overlay.
Designed with a
longer wheelbase of 2550 mm (existing 2400 mm), the Sumo Grande sports
comfortable 3 row seating with best in class third row seats. Beige
interiors are complimented by fire and stain resistant fabric
upholstery. Dual HVAC with roof integrated louvers ensures personalised
climate adjustment for the occupants in each row. Power steering, power
windows, motorised ORVMs, height adjustable driver’s seat and a state
of the art CD/MP3 music system further add to the comforts and
convenience of a family traveling in the Sumo Grande. The vehicle is
powered by the new generation 2.2 L direct injection common rail
(DICOR) engine, fitted with a variable geometry turbocharger creating a
perfect blend of performance and fuel efficiency. Maximum power and
torque of 120 PS and 250 Nm, coupled with high torque levels over a
wide RPM band enhance driveability in stop start city traffic. For a
vehicle its size, the Sumo Grande is extremely maneuverable with the
turning circle radius of 5.25 m, similar to a small car.
Sumo Grande will be available in 3 variants – Lx, Ex and Gx -- all of
which have two seating configurations – 6 1 and 7 1. The vehicle will
be available in 7 colours, including 4 new shades, Sunset Orange,
Zephyr Green, Mineral Red and Marine Blue. The Sumo Grande range is
