This is the vehicle which I saw on Sunday. Just wondering why they are using the tail lights from the old gen scorpio and not the new one. Its making the rear look way out of place. Even the alloys are not from the current gen.

It seems like this is MIX & MATCH of various Mahindra vehicles.

Till the tub, it is identical to the present Scorpio - both interior and exterior. I guess it was the only logical thing to do, to increase parts sharing.

Things that remain the same - ugly tub and the alloys.

Maybe, they have smelled blood with the V-Cross sales but I doubt it will be even a patch on the handsome looking V-Cross. Getaway always appears to be an after thought, especially with the industrial looking tub and that "dummy" arch on the rear door, why don't they straighten it out!

The 2016 Scorpio Getaway was spotted testing on the Mumbai-Pune expressway by Motor World India spies, who also noted that the logo on the rear of the test mule read "Mahindra Pik-Up".

Are those reclineable Captain seats at the back ? against the bench seats normally available in pickups.
Tail lamps look like the first gen Scorpio. Somehow the rear (loading bay) doesn't sync with the front half of the vehicle

Mahindra Pik-up(or Getaway as we know it) is not a good selling vehicle for India. It is mainly exported to markets in Africa and Australia, there it is positioned as low cost no frills, base level utility vehicle. How else could it compete with likes of Ford Ranger or Toyota Hilux. I guess that is the reason Mahindra has decided to retain the basic appearance.

This vehicle is not relevant to our market, even if the private Pick-up truck popularity goes up due to the Isuzu V-Cross, which at the similar price point is much more superior product.
