Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au —15 New gloss on workhorse M AHINDRA’S progress in the Australian market to date might have been slow and steady, but it says it is here for the long term and its revised Pik-Up is proof positive of its commitment. Key among the changes the Indian car- maker has made to its tough workhorse are those aimed at lifting its safety rating to an anticipated three stars once it is tested by ANCAP. With dual front airbags and antiskid ABS brakes standard across the Pik-Up range Mahindra is confident it will achieve a threestar ANCAP rating. While some Pik-Up customers, notably farmers might not appreciate the addition of airbags as they prevent them from using their vehicles to push and shove gates, equipment and stock around their farms, but the extra safety features are sure to appeal to city slickers. Towndwellers are also likely to be attracted to the new grille, headlights, fog lamps, bumperandbonnet scoop thatcombine to give the Pik-Up a fresh new face and make it more appealing. Add to the external makeover new ergonomically designed seats for improved comfort, a sporty gear knob and park brake lever, tilt-adjustable steering column, new fabric trim, a new CD sound system with MP3 compatibility and steering wheel controls, and powered mirrors, and you get the impression Mahindra is trying to reach out to buyers wanting more from their utes than the rugged reliability Mahindra has been relying on to win over sceptical Australians. As it was in the first generation of the Pik- Up the range consists of single and dual-cab utes and cab-chassis models, with either two or four-wheel drive, and powered by a 2.5-litre common rail turbo diesel engine boasting 79kWat 3800 revsand247Nmat 1800-2200 revs. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard, there is no auto available, and the four-wheel drive transfer case has electric selection. The suspension is a proven tough combina- tion of front torsion bars and rear leaf springs, the steering is power assisted and the brakes Co-Op Toyota THE all new third generation Prius is now at Co-op Toyota. Powered by Toyota’s hybrid synergy drive technology and containing many world firsts, it is Toyota’s most dynamic, technologically advanced Prius yet. The vehicle has also gained a five-star rating from the Government Green Vehicle Guide for its combination of fuel economy (3.9 litres per 100km) and its low CO2 emissions (89 grams per km). Lexus of Hobart THE newly released Lexus RX 450h has arrived at Lexus of Hobart. With a 3.5-litre VVT-i V6 engine employing the Atkinson, or high expansion, cycle to optimize efficiency, the Lexus luxury SUV takes another great leap forward. This petrol-electric hybrid will use 6.4 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres and emit 150 grams of CO2—a figure never before achieved in any SUV in Australia.

All models boast a payload of at least 1 tonne — the single-cab two-wheel-drive is the highest at 1160kg, and all will tow up to 2.5-tonne. Mahindra’s warranty is for three years or 100,000km and there’s also 24-hour roadside assistance for three years. Mahindra launched in the Australian mar- ket with the Pik-Up two years ago as partner in a joint venture with Tynan Motor Industries, but has since taken control of the operation by acquiring an 80 per cent share and renaming the company Mahindra Automotive Australia. the Mahindra cause in Australia, said Pravin Shah, Mahindra executive vice president of international operation in the automotive sector. Shah said he was satisfied with the progress the company had made, and reconfirmed its commitment to stay in Australia for the long term. When asked about sales, Shah refused to elaborate, saying he preferred not to speak about sales as they simply provided a yardstick for others outside the Mahindra to measure his company’s success. All he would say is that they were in the thousands. The number has four figures, was all he would say — between 1000 and 9999. He was keen to talk up the future. Shah said Mahindra was likely to release an SUV in the coming months, and had plans for all-new SUV and Pik-Up models for 2011. The new global models are currently being developed on all-new platforms with the intention of selling them throughout the world. SLICKER:Newfeatures take the Pik-Up beyond rugged reliability.
