Tata launched their popular MUV Sumo in the market back in 1994. It became popular among customers in a very short span of time. In three years time, Tata was able to sell 1 lakh units of Sumo in the market. Over the years, competition increased in this segment and in 2019, Tata officially discontinued Sumo. There are still some well kept examples of Sumo in the country. Here we have a video where a 15 year old Tata Sumo has been beautifully restored and modified both on the outside and inside.
The video has been uploaded by Rohit Mehta Sai Auto Accessories on their YouTube channel. The video starts with the vlogger showing all the modifications and customisation done on this 15 year old Tata Sumo. Starting with the front, the MUV gets stock headlamps with ring type LED DRLs in it. The front bumper on the Sumo actually gets a gloss black finish to it. A set of fog lamps are also installed on the bumper. The bonnet on this Sumo gets black and red decals on it. The headlights are actually HID units instead of regular halogen bulbs.
