Spied – Tata Sumo Grande Facelift begins testing
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Tata is working on a facelift for the Sumo Grande and the first set of spy images revealing a prototype have just emerged. Thanks to Team BHP, we are able to show you exactly how the Tata Sumo Grande facelift would look like. The car was spotted at Pimpri, near the Tata Motors plant.
Indian Autos Blog informed you back in June about a Sumo Grande facelift being in the works. Inside sources told us that we could expect to see a facelift being rolled out in the next six months. Our source mentioned that “specific consumer segments are identified for which the Grande will be made and marketed to”.
The Grande refresh gets a darker grille and an additional bull-bar. We don’t observe changes to the headlights or the front bumper. Tata has blackened out the pillars and used what we think are matte-black stickers surrounding the windows.
At the rear, the Grande gets an additional set of reflectors above the taillights. There are bound to be a few interior revisions, while the engine is expected to continue unchanged.
With the Sumo Gold facelift (launched in June at the Horizonext), we saw certain feature additions to the cabin such as a mobile phone holder and plastic covers for a more complete look. Alongside these changes, could the more premium Sumo receive the Vista-platform LCD infotainment touchscreen to complement navigation and Bluetooth audio functions?
