New 2018 Mahindra PikUp launched
The updated 2018 Mahindra PikUp has been launched boasting a tweaked exterior, interior and engine.
THE MAHINDRA PIKUP has been on-sale in Australia since 2007 and has copped its first major update. Still recognizable as the rugged looking original, the new PikUp gets a new grille, bumper, bonnet and fog-lights.
The interior too has been updated, the most obvious being to the upholstery and the new six-inch full colour touch screen display on the S10 Double Cab variants. This top-spec variant also offers remote central locking, cruise control, satellite navigation, reversing camera, climate control, and rain-sensing wipers, and a multifunction steering wheel.
In terms of safety, the PikUp offers Hill Descent Control, ESC, ABS, EBD, Roll-over mitigation, Airbags, and a Collapsible steering column standard across the range. There are now rear seat head rests and 3-point lap sash seat belts for all seats along with two ISOFIX anchors in the rear seat with three top tether points for all Double Cab models.
The engine is an updated version of the original, a 2.2-litre four-cylinder mHawk turbo-diesel engine which makes 103kW and 330Nm of torque at 1600rpm.
The turbo-diesel engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels, with 4×4 transmission with low range. The entire range of the Next Generation Mahindra PikUp is fitted with an Eaton MLD (Mechanical Locking Differential)
