Our S11 PikUp test vehicle is available only with a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and new Aisin-sourced six-speed automatic, for a list price of $38,500, drive-away.
Our example is also equipped with a Mahindra genuine accessory winch-compatible steel bull-bar which adds $3500 (fitted).
The S11 comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels and 245/75 R16 tyres with a matching spare.
There’s also LED daytime running lights and dusk-sensing halogen headlights with static bending (which automatically illuminates inside kerbs when cornering at night), front fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, side-steps, rear sports bar, load tub-liner, automatic rear diff-lock, reversing camera and more.
There’s fabric-trimmed seating for up to five occupants, with the front bucket seats equipped with unusual but welcome fold-down inboard armrests.
There’s also a USB port, two 12-volt outlets, centre console air-vents for rear passengers and a multimedia system controlled by a 7.0-inch touchscreen with multiple connectivity options, including links for Apple and Android devices.
Mahindra also offers a genuine accessories range, from towbars, nudge bars and bullbars to engine snorkels, wheel options and lots more.
