Next-generation Tata Sumo: Like it like this? [Video]

Tata Sumo is an iconic car was in production for 25 years before it was taken off the market due to the stringent safety and emission rules. While Tata has not revealed any plan to re-launch the Sumo in an all-new avatar in the future, given the popularity of the MUV, it sure will attract a lot of customers. What would a modern-day Tata Sumo look like? Well, here is a rendering video that shows what the current-day Tata Sumo will look like if designed according to the latest design language of Tata Motors.

The rendering image has been made by SRK Designs shows the way the design of the car has been made and it is based on the Tata Sumo itself. The rendering image shows all the changes that Tata might use in the modern-day Sumo.

To start with, the front-end of the Tata Sumo gets a new face. It now has the slim LED lamps at the front just like we see on the Harrier. However, since the Sumo has a boxy design, the DRLs are straightforward. The main headlamp cluster sits just below the DRL and they now have projector lamps too. Even the bumper of the Sumo has been updated to look much more futuristic and modern. It changes the whole look of the car.

This render shows the Tata Sumo more like an SUV with tough-looking bumper and integrated skid plate. There are even lamps mounted to the roof of the vehicle that will ensure proper illumination of the dark roads.

Other changes in this rendering image show aftermarket tyres, which are much bigger than the stock and even flared wheel arches that add a wide look to the vehicle. Even the side of the vehicle has been updated and now it gets additional protectors that also add a tough look to the car.

Tata discontinued the Sumo last year after the new safety norms were implemented to the market. First introduced in 1994, the Sumo did not see much of a design change all through its life. The MUV based on a ladder frame chassis became very popular in the Tier-II and Tier-III cities where the customers wanted vehicles that can last for years without spending too much on the maintenance.

The Sumo takes on the likes of Mahindra Bolero in the market but Tata has not commented officially on the return of the vehicle to the Indian market in the near future.
