Tata’s 207DI EX2, single cab workhorse one-ton bakkie has been refined with several visual and practical improvements. Good news is that it still retains its renounced load-capable dropside loadbox which has a flat floor.
The exterior has been spruced up with some bold decals along the side and on the bonnet, as well as new-look wheel covers. A very 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 a very competitive 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 a no-nonsense bakkie that is rugged, durable and reliable. It 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.
The Tata workhorse bakkie is covered by a 3-year/100 000km factory warranty plus road side assistance.
Tata products in South Africa have the backing of the Imperial Group to ensure peace of mind for the owner as it means top class dealerships with excellent after-sales service. There is a wide spread of dealerships in Southern Africa, with 59 servicing facilities and 42 sales outlets.
