Tata’s 207DI EX2, single cab workhorse one-ton bakkie has been upgraded with several visual and practical improvements. But it still retains its dropside loadbox which has a flat floor.
Brian Joss – The exterior has been spruced up with some decals along the side and on the bonnet, as well as new-look wheel covers. A practical cab protector is another addition to the specification.
The big improvement in the cab is the fitment of comfortable, cloth-trimmed bucket seats.
“We have managed to retain the selling price at R169 995 despite the added specification, as part of our aim to offer value-for-money to buyers of Tata vehicles,” explained Larry Da Costa, General Manager Sales and Operations of Accordian Investments, a subsidiary of Imperial, which markets and distributes Tata passenger cars and light commercial vehicles in South Africa.
This workhorse has been a mainstay in the Tata LCV line-up for years and is aimed squarely at the business community with no pretences about being a transport alternative to a passenger car.
The Tata workhorse is powered by a 3-litre turbocharged diesel engine producing 52kW of power and 225N.m of torque. It drives the live rear axle through a five-speed manual gearbox.
