Tata Motors launches a new, more fuel efficient Sumo Victa Turbo DI range

The new range is fitted with a 3-litre Turbocharged DI engine, which delivers improved fuel economy and higher power and torque. The new engine develops maximum power and torque of 70 PS (at 3000 rpm) and 223 Nm (at 2200 rpm) respectively, which translates into considerable improvements in overall performance and driveability.

The new Sumo Victa Turbo DI delivers 15 kmpl, albeit under test conditions, which would further enhance its appeal to the commercial fleet operations segment, for which fuel consumption is an important input cost.

Other attributes of the Sumo Victa IDI range''s include a turning radius of 4.9 mts that is comparable to the radius of small cars. The vehicle''s spare wheel is stowed under the body.

The new range comprises 4 trim levels, Cx, Lx, Ex and Gx, available in both BSII and BSIII emission compliance levels. The Sumo Victa comes in a range of seating configurations, from 7 to 10 seats.

The airconditioning in the vehicle has been improved as well, with HVAC (heating, ventilation and airconditioning) being part of standard equipment on Lx, Ex and Gx variants.

The top end variant (Gx) is equipped with power steering, power windows, central locking, keyless entry, CD/MP3 music system and internally adjustable side view mirrors.
