THERE’S NO hindrance in the latest and muscular looking Mahindra Scorpio PIK-UP design.
Suffice to say only two or three bloody agents having a go at it (for reasons best known to their conscience) the public fell in love this bakkie or a Van -as English prefer calling it.
Yours truly was handed over this revolutionary and Micro Hybrid technology 4×4 for month, as it clocked kilos wandering from one province to another.
Yes, from the face value one can challenge its features that’s until you sit behind the wheels and experience the innovation it boast.
Don’t be fooled-its interior has comfortable and appropriate seats. It’s incredibly spacious with enough places for luggage, headroom, and legroom and comfortable with cosy seats ideal for a long enjoyable ride. It provides also a number of facilities such as centre armrest on second row seats middle row sliding seats, tiltable steering and heating, rear wash and wipe, rear demister and illuminated footboards.
It offers technological facilities incorporating with, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, view mirrors, stereo that is MP3-compatible with USB and SD card inputs debut. In addition, among basic features are electric windows, air-conditioning, power steering and electrically adjustable rear. What are more striking are the sufficient storage spaces ideal for people with “active lifestyles”. Dare I said it…
On the safety aspect it has gone beyond to make sure the customer enjoys the Mahindra Scorpio PIK UP without any hesitation, such as ABS, standard dual front airbags, as well as pre-tensioning seatbelts.
It has integral alarm and immobiliser, and offers keyless entry, and is packed with both active and passive safety features giving the highest protection to its occupants or my Gran in this instance, who at times was against its height level feature. It has auto locking doors for kids safety as well.
Clocking at 120km/per hour on a steep it might sound its struggling a bit, but immediately when you play with the gears, it takes off without any hindrance. It packed heavy decorative wedding materials to dumping waste, amongst others.
Yes, it weathered the storm, rains and everything that was hurled at it- ask Durbanites, North Westernians, Limpopweans, Sowetans, Joburgers, et al… My better half rounded it so delicately “I love this unique Van”.
