The S6 is the cheapest way into a Mahindra PikUp, sitting below the better-equipped S10 in the two-tier line-up.
Like most utes, it’s available in a dizzying array of styles, but it starts with a single-cab, cab-chassis in manual for $21,990. You can have the same car with four-wheel drive for $26,990, or step up to a dual-cab version for $29,490. Finally, a dual-cab S6 with four-wheel drive and a 'well-side tub' (or pick-up style) is $29,990. All those are drive-away prices, too.
The S6 serves up steel wheels, air-conditioning, an old-school letterbox stereo and fabric seats. There’s just the one engine on offer here; a turbocharged 2.2-litre diesel good for 103kW/330Nm. It is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox that will power the rear wheels, or all four, should you spring for four-wheel drive. If you do, you'll find a manual 4x4 system with low-range and rear diff lock.
Safety is a basic package, I'm afraid. Driver and passenger airbags, ABS brakes and traction control are joined by hill-descent control and… that’s about it.
