Mahindra Black Edition mHawk: best value 4X4 on the market?

Mahindra Black Edition mHawk

The Mahindra Black Edition mHawk was released as a special edition last year, it’s now a permanent fixture in the lineup and we’re wondering if it might be the best value fourby on the market.

The Mahindra Black Edition mHawk might not be the first vehicle you think of when it comes to a ‘premium’ four-wheel drive. But at $39,990 driveaway it makes a hell of a case for itself, don’t you think.

Based on the top-spec S10+ variant, the Black Edition mHawk adds:

  • Black Steel Bull Bar;
  • Black Side Steps;
  • Black Alloy Sports Bar;
  • Black Flares;
  • Black Custom Decal Kit;
  • Black 17-inch Rims; and
  • Black Tub Liner.

Other standard features, as included on S10+ models are a new seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav and Android connectivity. You get a reversing camera and rear seat vents,one-touch lane indicator, remote fuel release, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, hill descent control, and hill hold function. Not bad for less than $40k.

Sure, the PikUp range isn’t the quickest in the segment, running a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine making 103kW and 320Nm of torque. This is mated to a six-speed manual transmission with Dana Spicer axles and Eaton self-locking differential.

The Mahindra PikUp comes with a five-year 100,000km limited warranty, five-year roadside assist and four year, 55,000km capped price service program. It’s available now.
