Ford's Bantam half-tonner has been revised with a new "face" and a number of specification upgrades but retains the proven 1.3 and 1.6-litre RoCam engines made in Port Elizabeth.
It has a new grille with a wider and deeper mesh pattern and new headlights with transparent multi-reflector lens elements; the range-topping 1.6i XLE also gets new fog lights.
The base model 1.3i Bantam has a new rear "bumperette" and interior cloth trim; it also gets a sliding rear window.
Most of the exterior changes, however, are to the 1.3XL, i.6i XLT and 1.6iXLE variants; The 1.3i XL gets a body-colour front bumper and all three have reshaped rear step bumpers, new body side protection mouldings and new wheel arch mouldings to go with their updated 14" rims.
All variants except the entry-level 1.3i and 1.6i now also come with mud flaps, new cloth seat upholstery and door panels.
