With sales dropping close to 1500 units each month, The Sumo brand needs a much needed upgrade to impress the buyers.

What we have here is a Sumo Grande which we assume will lose the “Sumo” branding which has been serving Tata for years. Also missing are the ‘Mark II’ badges. The Sumo brand is mainly associated with the Taxi crowd, and seems like Tata wants to shun that image off the Grande with its plan to drop the ‘Sumo’ brand name. This leaves the Sumo brand with just the BS3 versions of Victa and Spacio which are still sold in the older shape.
The minor upgrades we spotted were the vertical acrylic appliqués on either side of the rear windshield, Body graphics and mirror finished inserts instead of body coloured parts on either side of the front grill.
On the interiors, we noticed updates interiors with changes made in the form of darker wooden trim as in the new Indica eV2.
The MUV looks production ready and we expect it to be on sale by the festive season later this year.
