This imaginative rendering of next-gen Tata Sumo will show you how the new-gen MUV would look like in its new avatar.
Tata Sumo used to be one of the most rugged MUVs in India. The reliable, tough-looking could ferry many people through the most difficult driving conditions in the country, which is something that gave the Sumo an immense popularity among those planning to buy a people mover. Although Tata Motors discontinued the Sumo after 25 years of its service, many people still long for the Sumo’s comeback to the Indian land. A digital illustrator has worked on a speculative rendering of the Tata Sumo that predicts how the new MUV could look like if it makes a comeback in a new avatar.

The rendering of the next-gen Tata Sumo previews the car’s futuristic look which stays in line with the straightforward boxy appearance of the old vehicle. However, the new-gen Tata Sumo may boast of many modern touches, following the new-age design philosophy of the newer Tata cars.
The front end of the new-gen Sumo looks good, thanks to the heavy inspirations from the Tata Harrier. Even other body bits of the new Sumo look similar to that of the Evoque while the rear-end is inspired by that of the Ford Endeavour. All these bits make the new-gen Tata Sumo look so good that we tend to forget that the car in these pictures is just a figment of someone's imagination.
The present-day Tata cars are doing very well at garnering a huge band of fan-followers due to their modern design language. At the Auto Expo 2020 held in Delhi recently, Tata unveiled the Tats Sierra concept, which also managed to grab a lot of attention from the auto enthusiasts. Tata hinted that the Sierra nameplate might return to the Indian market in times to come but they didn’t have any immediate plan on the Sierra’s comeback yet.
Back to the now-defunct Tata models, the company has some iconic yet discontinued vehicles in the market including the Tata Safari, Tata Sumo and Tata Sierra. While the company has revealed no plans of resurrecting the Sumo moniker, the Sierra might actually see the light of the day in an all-new avatar. Tata also showcased the Hexa Safari Edition at the Auto Expo 2020 and the car will be launched in the domestic market. The 'Safari' suffix will be added to all future 4x4-equipped Tata models to pay homage to the legendary SUV.
