JOHANNESBURG, Gauteng - Mahindra South Africa extended its range of Bolero bakkies with the launch of the new Maxitruck Plus – a single-cab workhorse, the automaker says, focussed on providing "high payload, low running costs and reliability".

Mahindra says: "The new Maxitruck Plus is recognisable as a member of the Bolero family due to its bold front styling, emphasised by the vertical grille, square headlights, extended bonnet and pronounced wheel arches."

LOW-COST BAKKIE

Powering the new Bolero Maxitruck Plus is Mahindra’s M2DICR 2.5 litre four-cylinder turbodiesel capable of 46kW/195Nm mated to a five-speed manual driving power to the rear-wheels. Fuel consumption is rated at 7 litres/100km. Its revised steering sees a reduction in turning circle to 11m.

The Maxitruck Plus has a ground clearance of 170mm, an extended wheelbase of 3150mm (from 3014mm compared to standard Bolero) and a load bay rated at 1.13 cubic metres of space with a payload of 1150kg.  It's fitted with 195/80 R15 tyres with 15" steel rims.

Inside it's equipped with immobiliser, cloth seats, dual-tone dashboard and Aux connectivity.

The new Mahindra Bolero Maxitruck Plus is priced at R127 995 and is sold with a two-year or 50 000km warranty. Services are at 10 000km intervals.
