The Mahindra Pikup was introduced in Australia during 2007. This 3-star rating applies dual cab 4x4 Pikups built from January 2012, when several production changes were introduced. Dual cab vehicles built prior to this date have a 2-star ANCAP rating (see separate ratings).

The Pikup scored 6.6 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well, except for footwell and firewall intrusion. Protection from serious leg injury was poor for the driver. Chest protection was marginal for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test.


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.

Dual front airbags, antilock brakes (ABS) and electronic brake distribution (EBD) are standard. Electronic stability control (ESC) is not available.

Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. There are no top tether anchorages for child restraints so this vehicle is unsuitable for transporting children under the age of four.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 6.6 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 3 pts
Chest 1.6 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. The dash structure partially separated from the a-pillar and the road wheel caused substantial footwell intrusion. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 160mm and upwards 55mm. The steering wheel hub moved 35mm rearward, 89mm upward and 31mm sideways. The a-pillar moved 50mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash the driver’s door could be opened with high manual effort. The tailshaft moved sideways and contacted the fuel tank.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column and dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag. The edge of the centre console was a potential 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. Experience shows that large vehicles like the Pikup can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award a full score of 16 for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.
