Tata has expanded its Xenon one-tonner bakkie range in South Africa with four new XT-badged models boasting added features and safety.
They offer a somewhat more palatable alternative to Tata buyers willing to pay a few more rands.
Available in single- and double-cab variants, the XT range comes in four derivatives that sell side-by-side with the existing and more budget-oriented Xenon range.
The Indian-built bakkies at last join the 21st century with inflatable crash safety, and all four XT variants have dual front airbags. ABS anti-lock brakes are standard across both the Xenon and Xenon XT line-ups.
The XTs are sold with a choice of 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains, all sharing a five-speed manual transmission. For enhanced offroad traction the double-cab versions are equipped with diff locks while the single cabs have limited-slip differentials.
