An updated version called Tata Sumo Spacio was launched in 2000. The Sumo Spacio introduced a new 2956 cc direct injection naturally aspirated diesel engine (known as Tata 4SP with 65 horsepower) which was sourced from the light commercial vehicle Tata 407. The major changes to Sumo were in the power-train. Riding on a longer wheelbase as compared to earlier version, the Spacio used a different transmission, rear axle and tyres specifically to get better fuel economy. Apart from being a ‘No-Frills’ version, the prominent visual difference between Sumo Spacio and the old Sumo was the presence of round headlamps instead of the rectangular ones.
A soft top version of the Spacio called the Spacio ST was also introduced for rural markets. The Spacio ST was also available in 4WD version.

In early 2007 Tata Motors launched the Spacio Gold Plus. This version received the 3.0 turbocharged engine of the 4SP family and offered increased power.
