Sumo grande is much better than the older one.if you like it then go for it....or I will suggest you the Chevy Tavera or Maruti SX4
Thanks Vibhor, the tavera will not come in the budget my company has. At least not variant with power steering and a/c. SX4 well great car but my heart is in for an SUV.
If tavera is not in compay's budget, the another car in your budget is bolero slx and if you dont like it, then simply go for sumo grande, though m not being a tata car user i dont no abt its after sales service..but i think grande is nominally priced..
Wait For M&M Indigero its coming in a month it would be an MPV (like Innova types).
Hey Thanks! any idea about the price range where Indigero is expected to be launched in????? My sense is it is expected to be just a shade lower that innova's price band.
It's not Indigero. It's Ingenio and wont come until after September. Price will be around Rs 6.5 to 7.5 lakh
i dont think ingenio wil be here anytime soon...will be great if it comes in a month...it will surely undercut the innova...but then autocar india carried a news article that the ingenio's interior quality is crap(compared to innova) and that mahindra has asked its suppliers to beef up the quality...thats why i had the suspicion that it wont be launched soon
Thanks! May not be able to wait till then, specially when not sure about the price range and the quality of the vehicle to be launched.
The core question now? Is Tata really worth trusting in terms of value for money, quality of the vehicles and service???
Ok so you have a budget of ex-showroom 65.lakhs =7.5lakhs onroad so you can consider the base Tata Safari .It is good for long drives and the suspension is way better than the Sumo Grande.
Tata safari ex showroom in Del is around Rs 7.4lakhs. That was the first set of wheels I checked.
The Ingenio is worth waiting for.Also the Bolero as such, is a fantastic and tough SUV in the lower end. It has sold around 5700 in number last month going by AC India figures.Thats more than the Maruti 800.But they have a CRDe engine in the offing I believe.325i can elaborate.
Well then with space and 5+ people the Grande suits you .Try to look for a good used Safari 3.0lt
yeah! Have tried that as well. With the new facelift it looks and feels good. However, found handling a bit tough. The grande feels a lot more comfortable that bolero also, the handling of grande is far superior.
Bolera is bouncy thing it is a rugged and the engine noise will make you realise that its a pick up truck .
Sumit from the posts i feel that your heart is already set on the Grande.. but your mind is worried about the small issues u mentioned...
Rajeev u have read my heart correctly, have heard a few bad things about tata and the attitude of their sales team at one of the best dealerships in delhi has made me a bit jittery. Being a new untested vehicle the apprehensions are only compounded.
Dont touch Tata products! they are junk. poor reliability, poor service and disastrous resale. dont get taken in by the attractive price. you will end up with a lemon.
The grande is overall good car at this price but ya even i had a bad experience with tata dealers when i asked for test drive of Grande
