Mahindra Imperio is a double cabin pickup truck that comes very useful both in business and personal commutation needs. Indian market for SUVs and smaller commercial vehicles has been mostly occupied by Mahindra, and the Imperio makes the market a lot more competitive. There are different options that offers luxury and usefulness in a single package. Depending on the variant, one may be able to pull out all power they need while delivering inventories to a rough territory while the inside of the cabin feels like an expensive vehicle. The design language is much more 21st century-like, and there is sufficient space inside and out. On an overall judgment, we’d surely vouch for the Mahindra Imperio.
Pricing for Mahindra Imperio starts at 6.5 lac Rupees and depending on the variant and options, it could go to a higher range. To avail an EMI, one has to pay 130,000 Rupees as a down payment and monthly EMI for a 36 months tenure would be Rs. 17,289. An interest rate of 12% would be applied.
Engine on the Mahindra Imperio is a 4-cylinder Common Rail DI engine, 2.5 liter in displacement. Not a very big engine for a truck but a higher torque of 227 Nm at 1,400 – 2,200 rpm can certainly move things through rough terrains at ease. Maximum power this truck’s engine can pull off is 81 bhp at 3,200 rpm. The transmission unit is 5 speed manual.
With a 55 liter fuel tank, Mahindra Imperio can go a pretty long distance. Be it city traffic or highway riding, average mileage on diesel retains a pretty decent figure. Even with 5 person fully loaded and a tail full of business inventory, the Imperio can go some hundreds of kilometers. Also the turning radius stays within a smaller figure, thus maneuvering in city traffic is easy too.
To keep the pricing affordable, some useful features like cruise control, navigation system and driver information display had to be taken away. However, a super chilled air conditioning system makes long road trips comfortable even in the most humid days and an adjustable driver’s seat can provide the highest comfort to the driver.
