Whether you love work or weekends away, the Mahindra Pik Up single and double cab offer just the right features to make it all so much easier.
The single cab has been designed to be strong and practical with all the power needed to get the job done. Built in India to withstand the harsh conditions of the subcontinent it delivers strength and tenacity with reliability to rely on.
A large load box with a maximum payload of 1 200 kg and a braked towing capacity of 2 500 kg make it the hard working, dependable team player you have always wanted. All this comes with a contemporary new look that includes a restyled signature Mahindra front grille with chrome inserts, dual projector headlamps, an integrated air-scoop in the bonnet and tough new wrap-around bumpers.
The Pik Up single cab also has a variety of standard comfort features such as power steering, central locking, USB port and a manual air conditioner to help you keep cool. Other advances include the introduction of Micro-hybrid technology that enables the engine to intelligently switch into standby mode when not in use, saving both on fuel and the environment.
New cushion suspension and anti-roll technology provide unparalleled stability and road holding while Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) keep you in control in hazardous situations.
The double cab was designed without compromise to be practical, strong and to deliver at every level. Generous on power and with superb reliability, its 1 000 kg maximum payload and 2 500 kg braked towing capacity provide the double cab with impeccable working credentials.
It has all the essential comforts and technological advances you would expect, from a four-speaker touchscreen infotainment centre with Bluetooth connectivity for your phone, through to static bending headlamps that help you to see around dark corners. This comes with a contemporary new look that includes a restyled signature Mahindra front grille with chrome inserts, dual projector headlamps with ‘eyebrow’ LED running lamps, an integrated air-scoop in the bonnet and tough new wrap-around bumpers.
Both the single and double cab are powered by Mahindra’s legendary 2,2 litre, four cylinder mHawk turbo diesel engine. The new six speed transmission delivers an impressive 103 kW of power and 320 Nm of torque, providing effortless acceleration and all the muscle you need. The updated engineering is more fuel efficient too and low on CO2 emissions – a hallmark of Mahindra’s cutting-edge technology.
Both models features Mechanical Locking Differential (MLD) which were manufactured by the world renowned Eaton Corporation with its ‘shift-on-the-fly’ functionality further enhancing its off-road capabilities. It provides full axle lock automatically when needed without any annual intervention, providing the optimum traction for any situation.
