TATA TARTS UP UTE FEA­TURES, SAFETY

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

TATA has added a host of new fea­tures - and dou­bled the safety rat­ing - to its range of Xenon utes.

All new Xenons now get elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol, trac­tion con­trol, hill hold con­trol, drag torque con­trol, hy­draulic brake as­sist, and elec­tronic brake­force dis­tri­bu­tion, and the sta­bil­ity unit alone has booted the hand­some ute's safety rat­ing to four stars.

It's all due to Tata Mo­tors Tough Cover, an own­er­ship pro­gram unique to light com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles under $30,000 and in­cludes a four-year/100,000km war­ranty, capped-price ser­vic­ing and road­side as­sis­tance.

All Xenons are pow­ered by a Euro 5 emis­sion com­pli­ant 2.2 litre twin-cam 16 valve turbo diesel pro­duc­ing 110kW/320Nm that av­er­ages 7.4litres/100km.

It has a 1080kg pay­load and a 2500kg tow­ing ca­pac­ity.

In­side, the Xenon fea­tures cloth trim, air­con, Blue­tooth, power win­dows, USB in­put with iPod con­nec­tiv­ity, re­mote cen­tral lock­ing with dual cab mod­els also have sat­nav and a re­vers­ing cam­era as stan­dard.

Tata Mo­tors is the world's fourth largest bus and fifth largest truck maker.

Xenon prices start from $22,990 drive away for the 4x2 sin­gle cab chas­sis with al­loy tray.

The dual cab is one of Tata's high-spec Xenon utes, with a range of new fea­tures.
