The Mahindra Pik Up S6 Double Cab range has gained four automatic transmission specifications, starting from R378,999 for the rear-wheel-drive, S6 Standard trim.
Mahindra claims this price makes its new Pik Up the “most affordable automatic bakkie in South Africa.”
All four new additions are fitted with the same engine and automatic gearbox, said the manufacturer.
The Mahindra S6 trim is the second-cheapest specification-grade offered by the company, bringing more features than the S4, but less than the S10 and S11.
These bakkies are equipped with manual air-conditioning, a radio with an Aux port, a multifunction steering wheel with cruise control, central locking, electric windows, a height-adjustable driver seat, auto-locking doors, front fog lamps, and fabric upholstery.
Four-wheel drive models are also fitted with a knob-selector in the cabin to shift between two-wheel and four-wheel-drive modes, as well as to low-range
Powering these S6 models is then a 2.2-litre, turbo-diesel engine connected to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The setup delivers 103kW and 320Nm, with power sent to either the rear, or all four wheels. Combined fuel consumption is pegged at 9.3l/100km.
Maximum payload capacity for the 4×2 models comes in at 1,095kg – 995kg for the 4×4 – with maximum braked towing capacity for the whole range rated at 2,500kg.
Each version is fitted with Mahindra’s “MLD” self-locking differential, too.
S6 Karoo Edition
For buyers who want a more visually impressive look, Mahindra also introduced two “Karoo Edition” options to the S6 automatic line-up.
The Karoo models swop the standard wheels with “off-road ready” alloys, and feature a unique nudge bar, rear styling bar, tonneau cover, colour-coded rear wheel arch mouldings, and rain deflectors.
