2nd generation Mahindra Scorpio Getaway launched in Qatar

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


The Mahindra Scorpio Getaway has been launched in Qatar. It is offered in 4X2 and 4X4 all-wheel versions with prices starting at QR. 58,000 (Rs.10.20 lakh) and QR. 64,000 (Rs.11.25 lakh) respectively. The new Scorpio Getaway is accessible in single or double cab body styles and in three trims – S6, S4 and S10. It measures 1,820 mm in width, 5,175 mm in length and 1,860 mm in height. The Getaway pick-up has a ground clearance of 210 mm. The approach angle is 34-degrees, departure angle is 15-degrees and it has a break over angle of 18-degrees. The payload capacity ranges from 995 kg to 1,195 kg depending on the drivetrain and body style. Its gross vehicle weight (GVW) is 3,150 kg.

While the Getaway has been spotted in India before, the latest set of images disclose the new pick-up in more detail. The old front fascia has been replaced with the front end from the 2014 Scorpio, minus the chrome fangs. The single-pod headlights make way for twin-pod units with joined LED DRLs. The grille has a chrome strip on top and the hood scoop now fits flush into the bonnet cavity. The front bumper has a black air dam and houses a set of fog lamps.

Moving to the side, new faux air vents have been added to the front fenders. These house the side turn signals and the ‘mHawk D140’ badge, which can only be found on the driver’s side (note that this is a left-hand drive model). This particular vehicle has a side step and is riding on 16-inch steel wheels shod with 245/75 R16 tyres. At the rear, the Scorpio Getaway gets a chunkier bumper with an integrated step and rear reflectors. The loading bay door appears to have been carried over from the previous model and has the ‘S6’ variant designation. The tail lights look similar to the outgoing model as well.
