The S10 is the best-equipped of the Mahindra PikUp family, sitting above only the S6 in the two-model range.

Unlike the S6, the S10 is only available as a dual-cab with four-wheel drive and a 'well-side' (or pick-up style) tub, and is yours for $31,990 drive-away. It builds on the basic spec of the S6, too, adding 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, sat-nav and reversing camera, along with climate control and rain-sensing wipers.

Its turbocharged 2.2-litre diesel engine is good for 103kW/330Nm, and is paired only with a six-speed manual gearbox, sending power to all four wheels. The 4x4 system includes low-range and rear diff lock.

The PikUp is covered by a five-year/100,000km warranty (though two of the five cover the drivetrain only), with service intervals just increased to 12 months and 15,000km.
