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).
