Mahindra Pik-Up 2018 pricing and spec confirmed

The model's front-end design has been overhauled.

Spanning across five variants, options for the manual-only Pik-Up include single- or dual-cab, 4x2 or 4x4, S6 or S10 grades, and cab chassis or well-side tub, with all featuring driveaway pricing.

The entry-level single-cab S6 4x2 cab chassis will join the range next year from $21,990, while the single-cab S6 4x4 cab chassis currently opens proceedings at $26,990.

Stepping up to the dual-cab S6 4x4 cab chassis costs $29,490, while dual-cab S6 4x4 well-side tub checks in from $29,990, with the flagship S10 4x4 dual-cab well-side tub attracting a $31,990 charge.

All are powered by an updated 2.2-litre 'mHawk' turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine which produces 103kW of power and 330Nm of torque from 1600rpm to 2800rpm, up 14kW and 60Nm.

Inside, significant changes are limited to new upholstery, as well as a 6.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system in the S10 grade.

Head rests and three-point lap sash seatbelts now feature on all seats, while dual-cabs are enhanced with two ISOFIX anchorages and three top tether points for the second row.

Moving up to the S10 further adds 16-inch alloy wheels, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, satellite navigation, a reversing camera, Bluetooth connectivity, remote central locking, an alloy sports bar, running board-style side steps, front-row arm rests, a height-adjustable driver seat, side projection lights, climate control and rain-sensing wipers.

A suspension upgrade with lift kit and stainless steel nudge bar with bash plate will be available next year.
