A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.

Tata Motors will fit the Movus with a set of both newly developed and improved parts in order to make it compete against the Mahindra Xylo and Chevrolet Tavera. The Tata Movus (Move-Us) is the rebranded Sumo Grande that will start a new innings in the commercial market.

Motorbeam.com says that the Movus will use Tata’s 2.2-liter VariCOR engine that is doing duty on the Safari Storme, returning a fuel economy of 15.2 kmpl (up from the current 13.55 kmpl). The launch of the Movus, it is speculated by the site, will mark the end of the Tata Sumo Grande moniker altogether.

IAB readers were asked to expect a repositioned Sumo Grande in 6 months in June last year.

According to the site, the Movus will get a new clutch assembly that promises an elongated life of 100,000 km. The MUV retains the Grande’s suspension setup – double wishbone system at the front and cost-effective leaf spring at the rear. It will come in four seating configurations (seven, eight and nine seater variants), one of which would be captain seats for the middle row, says the site.

The Movus gets thicker brake linings that will improve the life of the brake discs and reduced NVH capabilities thanks to redesigned body mounts. It also gets a cable type door latch, which the auto industry worldwide has been adopting for ages, to effect better door closing and reduced noise penetration.

Other notable improvements are a clutch pedal with reduced operating effort, longer lasting fuel filter, timing belt with extra durability and an improved rack and pinion steering system.
