MAHIN­DRA PIK UP 2,2 CRDE DC 4x4 S10

Car (South Africa) - - TEST -

The first thing I do af­ter start­ing up the Mahin­dra is switch the start/ stop off. I leave the auto wipers on, how­ever, as well as the auto-lights but­ton. The only prob­lem with this func­tion is that you can­not use high beam. Strangely, the auto lights must be de­ac­ti­vated in or­der to do this. That aside, it’s tes­ta­ment to how well equipped this Mahin­dra is.

The Pik Up stands tall and has high-mounted seat­ing, which gives great vis­i­bil­ity. Al­lied to that, cruise con­trol pro­vides a re­lax­ing drive, al­though there is slight hunting as the sys­tem main­tains a steady speed. If only park­ing the Pik Up was so easy … the lack of park­ing sen­sors or a cam­era means cau­tious ma­noeu­ver­ing is nec­es­sary. – Peter Palm
