Tata Motors will launch the upgraded Sumo Grande on the 14th of this month. Renamed Mk2, the Sumo Grande gets vital upgrades to achieve better sales. Few years ago, Tata Motors carried out a similar procedure on the Indica hatchback (Indica V2) which worked wonders for the company.
Tata will not switch engines or gearboxes. Instead they have focused on getting the NVH levels right. The vehicle, according to reports online, is more refined. Interiors also feature minor changes - the steering wheel for example is taken from the Indica Vista, and the seats are more upmarket.
