The perfect car

Overall rating: 4 Reviewed By: Jaspreet Singh on 14 May 2015
I‘m an avid traveler and I wanted a car, which has an incredible performance and utility. Without thinking much, Tata Sumo was my final choice. It has an amazing power steering, which is better than its rivals. It gives a mileage of around 18kmpl. I have travelled a lot with this vehicle on rough and...  Read More »

Solid Car

Overall rating: 3.5 Reviewed By: Utkarsh on 17 June 2016
My sumo gives me great service. Since I travel for long distances often, it gives me great fuel efficiency and mileage. It is spacious so my family is comfortable during the ride. But then, the engine sound is too noisy to be tolerated. Extensive safety features could have been incorporated.  Read More »

Tata Sumo Gold Overview

One of the first few vehicles to have tapped success in the utility vehicle segment, the Tata Sumo has been around for quite some time. Gone are the rectangular headlamps and in are the new design lights that first made appearance in the Sumo Victa.
On the whole, it's still recognizable but works well as a utility vehicle for the present day. Comes with two engine options, one for BSIII and the other for BSIV markets. On the inside, it has come a long way from the original Sumo, and that helps indeed. Available in a total of five trims for the BSIV version, and three for BSIII version, the Sumo sits in the not so dense UV market. But with the increasing shift towards compact SUVs and MPVs, the segment doesn't look as strong, especially in Tier-1 cities.

Tata Sumo Gold Exterior

Although it might have not completely lost its boxy styling, the Sumo looks well proportioned in the current avatar, the Sumo Gold. The styling isn't outright muscular, but thanks to additions like the flared fenders, high ground clearance, and an upright stance, it is presentable.
The spare wheel is tucked underneath the body, which gives the vehicle a cleaner look. Also, the added graphics might not be of everyone's liking, they save the rather plain design from being too monotonous.

Tata Sumo Gold Interior

It might not be a plush lounge inside, but the Sumo Gold's interiors offer an overall comfortable and airy cabin. There would be no concerns regarding the headroom or passenger space, because there is plenty!
The lowermost variants can seat 5, while the higher versions can accommodate up to 9 people aboard. Plastic quality is just about okay and equipment level isn't generous either. The top-spec GX variant gets a couple of extras too, like a CD-player with USB, Bluetooth, and MP3 support.

Tata Sumo Gold Engine & Transmission

The Sumo Gold is available with two engine options, a BS-IV version and a BS-III variant. There's a small bump in power and torque figures in the BS-IV version. The BS-IV 3-litre CR4 engine makes about 84PS of power and 250Nm of torque, while the BS-III variant makes a maximum of 70PS and 223Nm of torque.
A five-speed gearbox is available with both the engines, sending power to the rear wheels (RWD) only.

Tata Sumo Gold Mileage

ARAI claimed figure for the average fuel consumption stand at 15.3kmpl for the BS-IV version, and 14.3kmpl for BS-III variant. That, in conjunction with a 65-litre fuel tank should give the vehicle a good overall range.
Given the vehicle alone weighs a hundred kilos or so less than 2 tonnes, the average fuel economy is quite decent.

Tata Sumo Gold Braking and Safety

The braking setup on the Sumo Gold includes disc brakes on the front runners and drum brakes on the rear wheels. All doors get side intrusion beam. ABS or airbags aren't available. There's engine immobilizer on the top-spec GX variant, and so is central locking and keyless entry.
Door ajar and seatbelt warning, both are present on GX only.

Tata Sumo Gold Performance and Handling

The Sumo Gold gets bigger wheels, a tough suspension, and a torquey engine. That gives it a good off-road performance, as long as you don't sink the rear wheels into mud. Because being a rear wheel drive vehicle, the Sumo Gold can't do anything if the wheels that are being powered get stuck.
Being an UV, and a good one at that, the main purpose of the vehicle is to travel on and sometimes off road, which the Sumo Gold does well. Its on-road manners are acceptable, and so are its abilities in tackling bad road conditions. The soft suspension and high profile 15-inch wheels adorn the vehicle with a comfortable ride. But it still suffers from body roll and is better off when not driven aggressively around corners.

What do we think about Tata Sumo Gold?

The Sumo Gold is placed in a market segment that has never seen much of glamour. It's either the MPVs and compact SUVs, midsize sedans or the full blown SUVs that are generally more glorified, and portrayed as the desirable vehicles. Blame it on the positioning but UVs aren't seen as the most luxurious vehicles. They have a purpose and that's to ferry people, above everything else.
Amidst all that, the Sumo Gold tries to make its presence in the market. So, if your commute requires traveling on bad roads, and you need ample space inside the vehicle, the Sumo Gold is a good option. The top-spec GX is recommended.

Tata Sumo Gold Competitors

The market's preference has shifted to the MPV segment (Mahindra Xylo, Chevrolet Enjoy, Maruti Ertiga) when looking for people movers. The UV segment still has Chevrolet Tavera and Mahindra Bolero as strong competitors.
