Those are rear fog's. The stop lights are in the indicator cluster and at the top-center of the windshield.

why two rear fog lamps?

rear fog lamp is suppose to be only one lamp, otherwise they could be mistaken for brake lights when both are switched on!!

yaar, When Maruti provides a single, center-mounted rear fog, people crib. People also crib when some other car has a single reverse lamp. But why complain when Tata is giving us two rear-fogs ?

The brake lamps are in the tail-lamp cluster, and when the Sumo in front of you applies brakes, then you will clearly understand he is applying brakes.

I think that is just reflectors no lamps. I dont think a product like sumo will have rear fogs.The reverse light is in the rectangular cluster i suppose.

No , didn't. As i understand you own a victa and i dont, i can't say authentically say than an owner. I also checked the Victa site and it says 'Front and Rear fog lamps'.

@Parm, not the Gold, but a Victa GX for almost 6 yrs now.

The pics seen here are of the GX model, which have front & rear fogs. The lower models (mostly all non-GX) do not have the rear fogs, and not even reflectors there.

Rear fog lights are always red coloured and are usually as bright or brighter than the rear brake lights. A lot of idiots turn them on even when there's no fog, causing annoyance to drivers of vehicles behind them.

Though Tata has liberally used Mercedes G series for Sumo's general exterior including the bonnet, Now The new Sumo's rear wind shield glass shape resembles '99 model Land Rover Discovery.

Only TATA can inspire its designs from Merc and JLR as an Indian company.

Reduction in Kerb weight by 10% to be around 1700kgs with Good Quality interiors/ new generation infotainment features with 4x4 option on 90HP TCIC engine Can revive the model's sales at around 7.5L to take on the Bolero.

I like the gold colour of the Sumo Gold in the picture.

Good Luck TATA for good Sales of Sumo

No, there is no change in the shape or size of the rear windshield.

Most Lifely Reflectors at max fog definately not rear stop lights they come in the cluster above. The safari 2.2 had fogs in the bumpers but they made way for relectors for the base models - which is what the sumo is.
