Have a look at the comparison between the two best selling Mini Trucks in the market: Mahindra Supro Minitruck vs. Tata Ace Gold.
The Mahindra Supro Minitruck is a great light duty truck and falls below the Maxitruck sibling. It comes with a payload capacity of 850 kilograms, which is good enough for transporting the goods within the city. The cabin is good enough for just the driver and co-driver and does not have air-conditioning too. Tiltable power steering and adjustable driver seat are the notable interior features. The braking system is handled by the hydraulic brakes.
The Tata Ace Gold is a perfect replica of all the goodness of the standard Ace. It has a very compact body that is very convenient to handle. The Tata Ace Gold is powered by a 0.7-litre IDI two-cylinder engine which is compliant with the BS-IV emission norms. The engine can generate up to 16 bhp of power at 3,200 rpm along with a peak torque of 39 Nm, which comes at 2,000 rpm. The produced power is channelled to the wheels via a manual gearbox, which is assisted by a single-plate dry-friction diaphragm clutch.
