Tata Sumo Gold


Car Owner Rating

New Tata Sumo Gold Description

The original Sumo became the Sumo Victa which is now known as the Sumo Gold. Once upon a time the Sumo was the largest selling 'car' in the country, even beating the Maruti 800. Now, it just seems like an anachronism. A midly altered grille and headlights don't seem like enough to keep it going. Tata ought to revitalise its ageing warhorse.

Ex-Showroom Price     Rs. 5.8 Lacs. - Rs. 7.7 Lacs.

5.0/10 by Shyam Gupta, 2013-01-10
We have been using Sumo in our taxi fleet since 2001 and are happy with it. Initially, we had a mix of Sumo and other vehicles. But since the introduction of the Sumo Gold, we stopped buying other vehicles and today our fleet only has the Sumo Gold. The new get up of the Sumo Gold is really nice and is definitely a better choice. Everyone here in Bengal loves it. From our drivers to all our passengers, all want to travel in the Sumo Gold for the comfort and convenience. At times, a family of 14 accommodates in the same vehicle, as they cannot afford the cost of only one. Despite this, the Sumo Gold’s CR4 engine soldiers on. It doesn’t hesitate or show any signs of struggle with such a load. People who have sat in the Sumo Gold have loved it and also compliment the space and comfort it offers. Those who haven’t sat inside won’t have any comments. So if anyone says Sumo Gold is a bad place to be in, then maybe the person hasn’t sat inside the car. I really like the interiors of the Gold and it is definitely a good buy. The Sumo Gold’s interiors have space and good styling also. I like the new steering wheel and even the AC vents and other buttons and controls. It is so new and fresh that even our drivers are happy to drive the vehicle. It is a breeze to drive it, and the drivers have never complained about it. We always wanted a vehicle that a driver will be willing to drive even after he has driven it for a good 500-1000km. Tata Sumo Gold is the vehicle that has met our exact needs. The drivers are happy to drive it and even the customers are. It is a win-win situation for both, which means more business for us. The power of the engine is good and even the performance is decent. We do not need cars that will race on the street, but are easy to drive and comfortable for the driver and also the passengers. At the same time, they should be fuel-efficient also, after all it is business that we are running. The mileage of Sumo Gold is really good and we love the fact that we can save so much money with such good fuel efficiency. If you consider the base variant or even the range-topping version of the Sumo Gold, it is the best in class when it comes to value for all the money that you have invested on the vehicle. The features, the quality of materials, the comfort and the fuel efficiency. Everything is very good for the cost it comes for and I’m really happy with the returns I have got and will be getting in the near future. It brings a smile on our faces, when we get so much for so little that we put in. I’m confident about the product, as we are using Sumos now, for over a decade and our business is also prospering because of the Tata Sumo Gold. Our existing customers demand for Sumo Gold, when they come back to us. The other good thing of the Sumo Gold is that it is sturdy and doesn’t breakdown easily. We driven it in various terrains like highways, mountains, jungle. But never faced any issues or problems with it. The engine also doesn’t show any signs of stress or struggle in difficult conditions. The other good bit about the car is its service. The Sumo Gold can be repaired on the road in case of a breakdown. This makes it easy for our drivers also to do simple repairs in case of an emergency. This is the reason why it is famous in the taxi business. People like it, we like it, drivers like it. We have had other vehicles, but nothing can come close to the Sumo Gold, that’s why we bought only this vehicle for our fleet. Whenever you come to Durgapur again, you can hire our Sumo Gold vehicles to travel long distances. You can contact me, as I’m famous in Durgapur in the taxi business.

5.0/10 by Rajeshwar Singh, 2013-01-10
I have always been a fan of Sumo and I have adored the looks of it. This is one reason why I bought the Sumo Gold over the Scorpio. This also has better seats and it is more comfortable than a Scorpio. The Scorpio seats aren’t that cosy and even the space for a person like me are tight. I live in Hyderabad and I have a daily running of about 300kms. So, I wanted something that is spacious, comfortable, smooth, and easy to drive and does not break down. The Tata Sumo Gold was the best option for me, and I bought it for my personal use. I take it everyday to my petrol pump and I like the Sumo Gold. It doesn’t just look good but also feels nice when you are inside the vehicle. Even getting in and out of the Sumo Gold is easy because of the space it offers, in Scorpio the second row has less space, which means one has to cramp him to move in. The Sumo Gold is a real gold vehicle. I love the way it feels when you sit inside. It is like sitting on top of a lion. That is where generally a king sits and that is a speciality of the Sumo Gold. The seats are comfortable and aren’t tiring. I like to take it for long drives also, and my work gets done in lesser budget because of the mileage of the Sumo Gold. Even the people travelling like it because of the leg room and the head room. Also, even folks sitting behind can see the road, which makes it more fun for the kids as they like to see what is happening outside. I can also see my bonnet. This makes it easier for me to judge the width of my car in tight turning spots. My petrol pump, commonly known as Rajeshwar Singh’s pump, has been famous for the last 14 years and now even my Sumo Gold is a part of the same fame. The Sumo Gold with its manly looks is great and stands out in the crowd. The massive grille with all the chrome shine is what I love about the looks. Interiors look so good and even the seats are nice and big. I like the second row seats also, because there is so much space and people sitting behind do not complain. The Sumo Gold is a good budget SUV with nice mileage. The utility vehicle is good to drive. The suspension is also nice. It doesn’t feel anything when you drive on bad roads. It takes all the shocks from the road. I have driven it several times on bad roads and still there is a lot of comfort and even the suspension is intact. No issues faced ever on the suspension. When I drive my Sumo Gold on the highway, it is a lot of fun. The engine is very responsive and I like the turbo on the engine. The CR4 engine is nice and fun to drive. Even if I go fast on the highway, the road grip of the Sumo Gold is phenomenal and I love to push it if I can get an empty stretch of road. Even when I drive it in Hyderabad city, I like it. No one messes around and tries to come in front of me. I like the Sumo Gold, because of its power when the red light turns green, even after its shear size. Despite being so large, it has good and small turning radius. This makes it easy for me to drive in small street lanes of the old Hyderabad city. The Sumo Gold is amazing to drive even on these tight and very busy lanes in Hyderabad. A new Mercedes SUV has come that looks similar to the Sumo Gold. My neighbours were telling me about it, and I liked this fact. The Sumo Gold now makes me more proud and I generally tell people about this same Mercedes SUV that looks like my very own Sumo Gold, if any one asks me. Even the styling of the Scorpio doesn’t really impress me. The Sumo Gold competes with the Scorpio and is still more spacious and more affordable also. I’m happy and lucky that I bought the Sumo Gold instead of the Scorpio and like the way the Sumo Gold drives. I have also saved a lot of money by buying the Sumo Gold instead of the Scorpio. My savings are still growing because of the average of the Sumo Gold, when compared to the Scorpio.

5.0/10 by Gurvinder Singh Sodhi , 2013-01-10
Tata Sumo has been on sale in India since 1994 and several million of customers have used this vehicle. I, Gurvinder Singh Sodhi from Punjab am a proud owner of the Sumo Gold. I always wanted to buy a big car and I have grown up, seeing the Sumo. I like to travel and always needed a car that is comfortable as well, with sufficient power from the engine. Also, as my family is large my requirement has always been for a big car, maybe an SUV. I have been using Tata cars for a long time and finally six months ago I got myself the Tata Sumo Gold. People in Punjab like big cars and SUVs. Sumo Gold is one of the most loved one in our state. It isn’t just massive, but even the looks are macho and very rugged. The Sumo Gold is carrying forward the heritage of the Sumo, and it is doing it really well. We all like this car and even my family and friends are happy with it. I bought the Sumo Gold about six months ago and since then there has been no looking back. I have taken this car to many places in my hometown Ropar, and even across my state, Punjab. I have also taken it to various other states like Shimla and Manali in Himachal Pradesh, Jaipur in Rajasthan and even to Agra in Uttar Pradesh. These trips are not tiring as the vehicle is very comfortable and even easy to drive. Even my family has been very comfortable on these large and spacious seats. So, long trips with family are fun. The height at which you sit is good and you even get a clear view of the road. The masculine looks of the front, means people move aside when they see me coming in their rear view mirror. It also feels like an SUV while driving and it is very comfortable also. I really like the engine on the Sumo Gold. It is powerful and easy to drive and overtake also. The Sumo Gold’s new CR4 engine does feel potent and it is a joy to use it on the highway and in the city. Even the gearshifts are nice and easy. Even the mileage is good and I haven’t had any issues with it. I’m very happy with this car and the space it offers. It feels so comfortable and easy to drive. Also, the good bit is even the people sitting behind can sit comfortably. There is so much space and so comfortable it is. People think that the Sumo Gold has bad interiors, but when they sit inside their thoughts change. The Sumo Gold has very nice and modern interiors. Another thing that I like in the Sumo Gold are the seats. They are so large and comfortable that you can relax while driving. The Sumo Gold is a very modern car and even the styling is good. I really like the air conditioning of the car because it cools so easily without any issues. We didn’t face a problem even in the Rajasthan heat. Even maintenance hasn’t been a problem for the last six months. I have been sending it for regular service to the dealership. Other than this, there has been no complaints or any issues with the car. The Sumo Gold is running strong without any kind of issues or hindrances. I even like the service, as it is affordable and not very hard on my pocket. I have always been a happy Tata customer for years. I have owned other Tata vehicles like Indica and Indigo and I still own them, but the space offered on the Sumo Gold is far superior. Anyone who has sat in my car has always praised it for the space and the interiors. They tell me not to sell this car ever, for its space and comfort. I really like the Sumo Gold and what to take it to many more destinations with my family. I don’t think I can get any other SUV at this price with so many features and space like the Tata Sumo Gold. I really like to take it to places and the car never complains. I have not used the old Sumo, but I now know why people really like the Sumo Gold. The engine, the power, the space, the interiors, the seats and not to forget the space for the luggage. The Sumo Gold is definitely a winner from Tata Motors, and I have been recommending it to several people.
