• Mahindra adds style and specification upgrades to the S6 and S10 DC model.

Mahindra is adding specification and style upgrades to its S6 and S10 double cab models, completing the upgrade of its Pik Up range.
The duo receive a new front-end design, with its wide, seven-slat grille, large, chromed logo, clear headlamps, and round fog lights in a redesigned lower bumper.
New front grille, bumper design
The grille was first seen on the S11 Automatic, which was introduced earlier this year and has since found its way to the upgraded Scorpio, the Indian carmaker says. This bumper design, with its integrated round fog lights, was also recently added to the range-topping S6 single cab.
The S6 in both single and double cab models feature silver painted highlights on the grille and round fog light surrounds. On S10 and S11 Automatic models, these same highlights are in chrome.
"The Pik Up range is making new fans every month, and our South African assembly facility can barely keep up with the demand. With the upgrades now added, we believe that we have the perfect bakkie for customers looking for reliable and capable, but always affordable, double cab to fit their lifestyle," says Rajesh Gupta, CEO of Mahindra South Africa.
Inside the cabin, all single- and double-cab models from the S6 specification level upwards now feature cruise control and electrically adjustable outside rear-view mirrors as standard.
A nifty addition to all double cab models and the S6 single cab is a remote fuel-flap release system that can be operated from the key fob.
In addition to the new look and upgraded cab protector, the S10 Double Cab received the same 17cm infotainment system with capacitive touch screen and integrated reverse camera that is available on the S11 model. This system has been upgraded to the most recent set of navigation maps and language pack for South Africa.
