I had the opportunity to take the new Tata Sum Gold CX for a test drive

Recently I had the opportunity to take the new Tata Sumo Gold CX for a test drive. I was pleasantly surprised by the performance of this low cost Multi Utility Vehicle (MUV). The best qualities of the car rests with its classic yet redefined exterior, improved fuel economy and comfort based interior.

Talking strictly about the engine and its performance, I was very impressed by the 3-litre, 2596cc, CR4 diesel engine that comes with a capacity of delivering maximum power of 85 bhp along with optimum torque of 250 Nm. In terms of mileage, the car has optimum city fuel economy of 12 kmpl that expectedly goes up to 15 kmpl on highways.

The aspect I like best about the MUV is its improved features towards the interior. Maintaining the spacious cabin capacity of 7-8 passengers with comfort, the cabin has additional features like air-conditioning system with climate control, power steering, power windows and music system with CD and MP3 player.

However, on the downside there is always room for improvements in terms of safety and security equipment. Features like Anti-lock System with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and airbags are not available in the car. Overall, the car gives quite a satisfactory package for a Multi Utility Vehicle perfect for Indian terrains.
