Tata revises super-sized mini truck


Indian auto giant Tata has introduced a number of revisions for its Super Ace one-ton pick-up, with the most notable being a new trim level and addition of a second model.

Compared to its predecessor lunched somewhat quietly two years, the newcomer, now known as the EX2, remains externally and mechanically unchanged with the most of the changes being on the inside.

Now available in base DLS and revised DLE specs, both feature an oddment tray with two cupholders, rubber mats, black interior trim as opposed to the previous grey fabric, Turbo badges at the base of the doors and a chrome grille lip on the latter. Measuring 1.5 m wide and 2.63 m in length, Tata claims a total load bay area of 3.8 m² while the dropside body has a claimed deck height of 60 cm.

Sitting underneath the cab, the Super Ace makes use of a 1.4-litre turbodiesel engine that produces 52 kW and 135 N.m of torque. A five-speed manual gearbox sends power to the rear wheels with Tata claiming a top speed of 125 km/h, and a combined fuel consumption of 7.2 L/100 km.

Standard spec for both models includes central locking, power steering, radio prep, height adjustable seats and headlights, 12v power socket and side impact beams, while the DLE adds colour coded door handles and bumopers, air-conditioning, electric windows, wheel covers and foglights.

A three year / 100 000 km warranty and three year / 60 000 km service plan in standard on both models.
