The Mahindra Scorpio Getaway pick-up has been launched in Qatar. It is available in 4X2 and 4X4 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 offered in single or double cab body styles and in 3 trims - S4, S6 and S10. It measures 5,175 mm in length, 1,820 mm in width 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 breakover 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 reveal 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 headlamps make way for twin-pod units with integrated 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.

On the inside, Mahindra has swapped the old dashboard for a new one borrowed from the Scorpio SUV. It gets a new multi-functional steering wheel (only on S10 trim) and instrument cluster while the updated centre console houses a 2-DIN audio system and the air-conditioning module. The top-spec S10 trim gets automatic climate control and a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation. The power window switches are located beside the handbrake. The spy images suggest that the S6 trim will be offered with airbags, ESP that can be switched off, hill-descent control and ISOFIX child seat anchors, at least in Qatar.

Moving to the engine bay, the 'mHawk D140' badge indicates that this particular vehicle has Mahindra's new 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder, mHawk diesel engine equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger. This engine recently made its debut on the Scorpio. It produces 140 BHP @ 3,750 rpm and 320 Nm @ 1,500-2,800 rpm and is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. It also gets gas struts that hold up the bonnet. 

The next-gen Scorpio Getaway pick-up has been spotted multiple times in India in the past. However, there has been no word regarding its launch yet.
