Editorial Test Drive Review of Tata Sumo Gold

 The Sumo is an old name in the Tata portfolio and in 2011, Tata gave some upgrades and called it Sumo Gold. Now again in 2013 the Sumo Gold has been given a refresh with new features. On the outside the new Sumo Gold gets  new colours, graphics and full wheel covers. The looks are still overly boxy and not much has changed. The new Sumo Gold also gets a new chrome grille which we must say looks classy! On the inside the new Sumo Gold gets new features like Dual AC cooling and Bluetooth/USB connectivity. The centre console in order to get more premium gets a faux wood trim. The seats can be folded to enhance boot space. The back rest of the second row, however, is not collapsible. The seats are slightly stiffer and come with adjustable lumbar support for the bucket ones. The instrument console has analogue speedometer and tachometer dials and a small digital display in the centre for the odometer, two trip meters and a clock. Door-ajar and seat-belt indicators also find place on the console. These are accompanied by acoustic warning. Tata Motors had earlier upgraded with engine when it got its last facelift and that engine remains. The three-litre turbocharged engine to meet the stricter Bharat Stage (BS) IV norms has 85 PS at 3,000 RPM and torque from 223 to 250 Nm at 1,600-2,000 RPM. Transmission is five-speed with an overdrive.The Sumo has a 85 PS engine and efficiency is important for customers in this class. Tata claims a fuel-efficiency of 15.3 km per litre which is good considering the size of the Sumo.The Gold has an independent suspension system in the front and leaf springs at the rear, with the result that the front absorbs the bumps and potholes well, but the rear bounces up and down and upset the ride. The Gold’s NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) levels are not a cause for complaint either. The new Sumo Gold gets tubeless tyres too! Anti-roll bars have been installed to reduce body roll. They do a fair job, but won’t stop your breakfast and lunch getting mixed while driving on a zigzag stretch.  The braking system has ventilated disc brakes in the front and drum ones at the rear. Vibrations through the seat, pedals and steering are negligible. The new Sumo Gold is more attractive than earlier and has a price of Rs 5.83 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).

Sumo design is outdated and most important is that New Sumo Gold is very much noisy,Vibration, engine is not smooth at
all. Tata motors is not intended for improvement though having resources... totally foolish in comparison to mahindra if

I owned a TATA SUMO GOLD Refresh model and NVH level is very good as compare to Mahindra Bolero

for what it is designed for the design is adequate. 3 liter engine has vibrations but it is a low rpm engine by design. it is not a race car but a rock solid transport. if they produce it for 100 more yrs i will still buy it on its merits.
