Yup, the site for the Sumo Grande in not up as yet. Have been searching for the same. The tata motors site still has the Sumo Victa micro-site.

Guess they have not 'really' launched it. The dealers also don't have the Sumo Grande on display.

The last I saw, they were still testing the Sumo Grande and the Xenon in and around Pimpri. I guess they are nowhere near launching it yet.

IMO, it should perform better than the safari, engine is same 2.2l, Power-to-weight ratio should be good and Sumo gearbox is a proven one.(Unless they de-tweak it)

I agree with dadu the Sumo gearbox is a proven gearbox and I don't think tata would do anything to jeopardize that one feature.The looks car looks more Suv than it's predecessor.

PTW Ratio - @ 1.9x Ton's i dont think the grande will have better performance characteristics than a safari (remember rear Coil's with Multilink vs Leaf Spring), It would be safe to assume that the performance would be better than the earlier Sumo in all respects.

I quite like the looks of the Grande. Way better than the new Scorpio for sure.

Default Webiste Link for Sumo Grande

Hi Everyone,

This sure looks like the web site url for the new Sumo Grande.

New Domain

I also checked the domain owners and it is indeed Tata Motors.

Hope they bring it online soon.
