2017 Mahindra Scorpio Getaway pick up spied as the company plans to launch it soon and export it to various markets in the world
Mahindra has come up with a Getaway version for their popular SUV the Scorpio. Recently a camouflaged test mule of the new Getaway was spotted testing on the Mumbai-Pune expressway which looks almost production ready. The new Getaway pick-up will be based on the new-gen Scorpio. The latest Getaway will get similar exterior styling and cabin design. The front of the car is identical to its predecessor which has been on sale since 2014. The C pillar of the car carries some plastic on it just to make it look a bit sportier.
The alloy wheels are the same ones we get in the outgoing Scorpio Getaway. The Body colour ORVMs and door handles now have been replaced with black ones. The rear portion of the latest Getaway comes with the same cargo deck from the outgoing getaway and the tail lights have been carried out from the original Scorpio which was launched earlier in 2002.
The cabin is said to be similar to the Scorpio’s SUV model with same features like the dashboard layout, a new steering wheel, information display in the instrument cluster and superior quality upholstery.
Scorpio fans out there will have to wait a bit more as there are still no such reports about when the 2017 Scorpio Getaway will be launched, but it is expected to come later this year. The new model’s prices will be pushed up as it comes with new features and some cosmetic changes on the exterior.
The engine will be the same 2.2 litre diesel which is shared with the outgoing Scorpio SUV model. The powertrain churns out around 120 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 280 Nm of peak torque at 1,800-2,800 rpm. Transmission duties are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Getaway will also come with a 4WD, which will be for the export market mainly.
The 2017 Scorpio Getaway will be available in two different body styles, which is a five seater double door cab and two seater two door single cab. The Getaway will have to go up against the very premium looking pickup Isuzu D-Max Cross and the TATA Xenon Yodha pickup.
