The tested model of Mahindra Pik-up was introduced in Australia during 2007.

The Mahindra Pik-up scored 3.44 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well, except for steering column, footwell and pedal intrusion. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver. Chest protection was weak for the driver and passenger. Driver head protection was also weak.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. However, the low offset score meant that the vehicle was limited to a 2 star rating and an overall score of 16.49 (the maximum available for a 2 star rating).


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

The Pik-up has minimal safety features. ABS brakes are optional. The Australian distributor advises that driver and passenger airbags will become available during 2008.

There are no top tether anchorages for child restraints so this vehicle is unsuitable for transporting children under the age of four (it is recommended that these children be in an approved child seat or infant capsule - both of which need a top tether anchorage). The distributor advises that this will be addressed during 2009.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 3.44 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 1 pts
Chest 0.44 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. However, the brake pedal moved rearwards by 223mm and upwards 107mm. The steering wheel hub moved 53mm rearward, 141mm upward and 23mm sideways. The front ("A") pillar moved 84mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash the driver’s door could be opened with high manual effort.

The driver's head hit the hub of the steering wheel. Steering column and dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The dash was a hazard for the passenger's right knee.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Pik-up. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

1-Star Pedestrian Rating

Pedestrian Summary

A separate pedestrian impact test is conducted. This test estimates injuries to pedestrians struck by a vehicle travelling at 40 km/h. The more stars the better (maximum 4 stars).

Like many vehicles of this type, a poor result for the Pik-up. The child zones scored particularly poorly, and the leg results were uniformly poor. The adult zones scored well in the middle of the bonnet but the top edge of the bonnet received partial points only.
