PRETORIA, South Africa – Mahindra SA is celebrating the post-Covid re-opening of its dealer network with the launch of a refreshed Pik Up S6 flagship single-cab.
The units have a choice of 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrains, slotting above the workhorse S4 – a model also available with either drivetrain option but the option of a heavy-duty dropside load bed.
Rajesh Gupta, CEO of Mahindra SA, told The Corner in a media release: “The upgraded S6 is one of the first models to benefit from our internal working group which is investigating further improvements to our reputation for producing reliable, capable, yet affordable vehicles.”
Viewed from outside, the S6 single cab benefits from design changes first seen on the S11 auto double-cab but have trickled down to the S10 double and S6 single-cabs. A new chromed seven-slot corporate grille features with a large Mahindra badge similar to those now on double-cab and Scorpio units.

All models in the S6 range have rain-sensitive wipers, automatic self-levelling headlights and a fuel-saving start-stop system, audio with auxiliary port, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, two front crash-mitigation nitrogen bags, central locking, a 12V charging port, anti-lock brakes, and aircon.
