Spacio is the Rural Sumo. Sumo comes with even more bells and whistles including the TCIC 90bhp engine. But if anybody is looking for a vehicle in that segment, spacio is more reliable and can take much more abuse.

Tata is upgrading the Spacio so that the Sumo Victa can be phased out. The Victa will be then replaced by the new Sumo. After Victa phaseout, expect more goodies from the Victa to come into the Spacio.
Analytically, the old-gen sumo (Spacio to be precise) will compete with the Bolero and the new-gen Sumo (to be launched soon) will compete with the likes of the Scorpio in the premium end of the MUV segment albeit a notch below the Safari.

Spacio has a direct injection engine, whereas the Victa has indirect injection engine. It is the Victa that has TCIC and generates 90 bhp.
The earlier Spacios used to generate only around 65 bhp despite the direction injection engine.

The only thing good about the Spacio is its time tested 407 engine that comes with a 4 ,00,000 Kms warranty. The Spare wheel has been pushed under the rear portion while the rear foot rest still juts out by about 200 mm. The seat height has also been increased which gives a clear view of the front tip of the Bonnet. The seats are mediocre and a huge cavity between the the driver's and the co-passenger's seat is unutilized.
Over all I feel Tatas are on the back foot with the launch of this variant and its very apparent that their engineers have run out of ideas.

The A/C is always on.
My TASC says older Safaris were known to return much lower figures.

All this is good, but my idea of an upgraded spacio is totally different.
Buy an old spacio throw the engine out and plonk in the 410 trucks engine then wear a helmet and drive. Well the Helmet is not for physical protection but that of Identity.
