The Tata Sumo Gold hasn’t lost its complete boxy styling but looks more presentable now thanks to its flared fenders and an upright stance. Its styling is still not outright muscular but is more proportionate now and hence looks more presentable now. The spare wheel is tucked under the body which provides the rear a very clean look, however, the added graphics do add a bit of flair into the otherwise monotonous look.

The seats are made out of fabric and the dashboard out of plastic which is just about okay.
