Sorry some OT Question:-

kindly excuse me for my less knowledge on these trucks.

Is the Getaway more specious then current Scorpio?
I mean to say middle row leg space is better then Scorpio?
Getaway is more comfortable ( consider long drive, more then 2K KM ) then Scorpio?

the getaway is only a pickup truck version of the Scorpio (also called a "double cab" version) - the load bed at the back serves perfectly for hauling things. I personally find the legroom in the standard scorpio middle row a little better than in the getaway. the front 2 seats and driving position is the same in the regular scorpio and in the getaway.

I have driven few pickups including the Nissan.The legroom in the middle-row is always less in pickups compared to the regular versions.Same is the case with Hilux and Fortuner.

Thanks everyone for the wishes!

I have driven about 150 Kms today including a very little bit of engaging 4H and 4L. Will start my ownership review soon.


Mods: Please lock this thread.

P.S: Just came to know that its not a Oct 2010 vehicle. Its Dec 2010
