TATA Sumo Gold

Tata Motors, today, launched the all new Tata Sumo  Gold, the most powerful SUV in its category, which will redefine the market  with its sheer power & reliability.

The Tata Sumo Gold has been conceived and designed keeping  in mind the needs of the young & progressive customer, who is looking for a  stylish, new-age vehicle that is powerful and takes on any terrain with ease.

Launching the Tata Sumo Gold, Mr. R. Ramakrishnan, Vice  President, Commercial - PCBU, Tata Motors said, "The Tata Sumo  Gold is a result of extensive consumer studies and field tests. The product has  been designed to fulfil various requirements, long-awaited by the new  generation customer."

At  the heart of every Tata Sumo Gold, lies a growling engine that thumps out  vicious power. The Tata Sumo Gold goes a step ahead in putting the reins of  power in the customer's hands, by letting him choose from two powerhouses, that  suits his driving experience, delivering the best-in-class acceleration, power  and an excellent torque aided pick-up & pull power.

CR4 Turbo - BS4: Symbolising a new elevated state of automobile  engineering, the all-new CR4 Turbo engine brings fresh blood to a lineage of  powerful engines. This 2956cc determined powerhouse delivers an output of 85Ps  @ 3000rpm and a torque of 250Nm @ 1000 to 2000rpm. With a stunning mileage of  14.7 kmpl, this engine is one giant leap ahead of the rest, in its league.

Di Turbo BS3: Bringing years of know-how to a lineage of power is  the Di Turbo engine. This 2956cc engine is all-muscle, generating an output of  70PS @ 3000rpm and a torque of 225Nm @ 1600 to 2000rpm. Its sheer size and heft  makes the Di Turbo the largest sized diesel engine. This engine delivers an  impressive mileage of 14.3kmpl.

The  Tata Sumo Gold has an imposing poise, broad stable stance and a visual  blitzkrieg of stylish body graphics. A new headlight design works in tandem  with a prominent tail lamp cluster, high power forward and rear fog lamps, to  light up the path. A renewed front grill, wide rear with a clean back and a  spare wheel below the cabin, add not only to its dominant presence but also to  its functionality. Large 15'/ 16' wheels with wide 215 mm / 185 mm radial tyres  and a high ground clearance of 190 mm completes the Tata Sumo Gold's aggressive  looks.

The  Tata Sumo Gold is as refined on the inside as it is muscular on the outside. A  leather wrapped steering wheel, with hydraulic power assistance, puts the  driver in absolute control. A stylish centre silver console and a dashboard are  thoughtfully located so that reaching out for them is almost instinctive. Plush  fabrics add a touch of sophistication, to the spacious interiors, as excellent  head, leg and shoulder space makes room for all passengers.

The  modern HVAC, with easy to reach controls, latest music system, power windows  and an engine immobiliser with a key, makes every drive comfortable, secure and  entertained. Switching gears will be easier with a smooth short throw gear  lever. A full featured instrument panel informs you regarding every necessary  detail, about the Tata Sumo Gold.

The new  Tata Sumo Gold is being launched in 4 variants - GX, EX, LX & CX - along with  a warranty of 3 years or 1,00,000 kms, whichever is earlier. The Tata  Sumo Gold range will be available from Rs. 5.23 lakh onwards (ex-showroom, Pune).
