Mahindra Australia has given the budget-friendly Pik-Up ute a significant multimedia upgrade for MY21.
Specifically, the Pik-Up’s two 4x4 dual-cab pick-up variants, the S10+ and S10+ Black Edition, are now fitted with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support as standard.
For reference, this change to 7.0-inch central touchscreen was made from May 2021 production and does not apply to the Indian ute’s three single-cab variants.

However, it is worth noting the 4x2 and 4x4 versions of the S6+ single-cab chassis did have their driveaway pricing increased by $1000 in January, to $24,990 and $28,990 respectively, due to higher shipping costs.
The 4x4 S6+ Pastoral Pack single-cab pick-up ($35,990) is unchanged on all fronts, while the aforementioned S10+ and S10+ Black Edition versions of 4x4 dual-cab pick-up are also priced the same as before, at $32,990 and $39,990, despite their more recent update.
Of course, no matter the variant, the Pik-Up is powered by a 103kW/320Nm 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine, which is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
As with the wider Mahindra Australia model line-up, the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger alternative is covered by a five-year/100,000km warranty. It also comes with five years of roadside assistance and a four-year/55,000km capped-price servicing plan.
