Tata Motors today announced the launch of Grande MK II, an upgraded
version of its premium Sumo offering in the domestic market. The Grande
MK II seeks to deliver added value to customers through substantial
changes in the exteriors and interiors combined with improvements in
drivability, ride and handling and comfort.
The exteriors have
been accentuated by a new chrome lined grill, side rub rails with
chrome inserts and indicators on ORVMs. The interiors have been
refreshed to give the vehicle a completely new, contemporary look with
a two tone theme complemented by a new faux wood centre console and new
The changed drive ratio in the Grande MK II
gives a boost to low speed performance in city driving conditions.
While a modified suspension ensures a comfortable ride, particularly
for second and third row occupants, optimised anti-roll bars reduce
body roll to a minimum during cornering. The existing low NVH levels
have been further refined.
Several ergonomic improvements have
been made in the Grande MK II -- significant among these are a smaller
steering wheel with floating horns, a grab handle on the ‘C’ pillar to
aid egress of third row passengers, and new inner door handles.
Grande MK II carries forward the class leading features of the earlier
version such as best in class third row seats and lowest turning circle
radius of 5.25 m in the category, in addition to having one of the best
fuel efficiencies in its class. Dual HVAC with roof integrated louvers,
motorised ORVMs, height adjustable driver’s seat and a state of the art
CD/MP3 music system are some of the other features Grande MK II
continues to sport. The vehicle is powered by the new generation 2.2
litre DICOR engine fitted with a variable geometry turbocharger which
delivers maximum power and torque of 120 PS and 250 Nm respectively.
Grande MK II will be available in 3 variants – top of the line Gx, Ex
