Xenon XT
The new Xenon XT has an impressive list of features that gives it a competitive edge over other lifestyle bakkies. It’s a perfect blend of looks, safety, comfort, convenience and performance, thanks to European styling. Its features include navigation, bluetooth, dual air bags, ABS, differential lock (double cabs) and limited slip differential (single cabs). A common rail diesel engine delivers high power and torque with the performance of an efficient workhorse.

The Xenon XT is powered by a new generation 2.2L VTT DiCOR engine controlled by a 32-bit electronic control unit and state-of-the-art technology. The engine keeps customer needs in mind and provides higher torque, power and fuel-efficiency with low emissions and peak power of 110 kW at 4 000 rpm, and peak torque of 320 Nm over 1500–3000 rpm. Xenon XT has one of the flattest torque curves, providing engine elasticity.

Also in the range is the Xenon XT DC 4×4, an adventure bakkie that confidently yearns for the challenge of the roughest 4×4 terrain. It has a maximum gradeability of 78% and restartability of 60% and conquers almost any steep slope. With 320 Nm torque from 1 500 rpm over a wide range (1500–3000 rpm), it can tackle challenging 4×4 trails. The shift-on-the-fly feature allows the driver to change into 4×2 or 4×4 drive without stopping.

An automatic differential lock enhances off-road capability. It kicks in once an rpm difference of 100 or more between the two rear wheels is detected, allowing the driver to navigate tricky situations.

Xenon XT single cab has a limited slip differential, which helps on slippery surfaces. It ensures increased driver and passenger safety during a collision. Standard dual air bags and seat belts with retractors, pre-tensioners and load limiters provide improved safety. The strongest chassis in its class, made from the best steel, helps carry any load on any road. The steering column collapses on frontal impact, and a body made of 0.8–1.5 mm, three-layered galvanised steel provides further safety.

The latest technology and advanced computer aided engineering systems ensure maximum strength. Brakes come with standard ABS, preventing locking and skidding over a short distance, with a twin-circuit braking system for emergency. Front and rear fog lamps enhance visibility. The Xenon XT has been designed for extreme performance and comfortable driving experience with low noise, vibration and harshness.

European styling gives it a pleasant feel. The signature Tata chrome grill and attractive clear lens headlamps are complimented by flared wheel arches.

Alloy wheels, stylish pull-type door handles, indicators on side rear view mirrors, attractive colours and stylish interiors add oomph.

With original high-raised suspension and a wide track coupled with a high kerb weight, the centre of gravity is low, giving good stability balance to the vehicle. Its suspension ensures firm road grip, excellent balance and good high speed control even when heavily loaded and allows it to climb steep slopes and negotiate difficult terrain.

Customised accessories include a nudge guard, bull bar, roll bar, tow bar, rear nudge guard and canopy. The Xenon XT range comes in a single cab 4×2, double cab 4X2 and double cab 4×4. With all these remarkable features it is ideal for family, leisure activities, farming, mining, construction, small businesses and municipalities and is a 4×4 enthusiast’s dream.
