New Generation Mahindra Scorpio Getaway to likely get 2.2-litre mHawk engine from standard Scorpio; will compete with Isuzu D-Max V-Cross and Tata Xenon XT
Mahindra is working on the new generation Scorpio Getaway and before the vehicle officially launches, a single cab and a dual cab test mule were spied testing in different places last month. The dual cab model was captured in Maharashtra while a single cab model was spotted in Australia. But now the two-door, single-cab version has been snapped in India courtesy of TeamBHP. The new generation model appears much more aggressive compared to the current model and it takes design cues from the current Scorpio.
Upon arrival, it will challenge the Tata Xenon XT and Isuzu D-Max V-Cross as well. Now speaking about design, new generation Scorpio Getaway gets a bold radiator grille with vertically slated look with plenty of chrome garnishing and the dual-beam headlamps sport projector units along with integrated LED daytime running lights. The front bumper gets a chunky and muscular appearance with two neatly positioned rectangular fog lamps at both ends.
New sporty alloy wheels are visible, while the muscular stance is also prominent. The car gets flared wheel arches, body coloured door handles, metal footplate. Rear gets compact and vertically positioned taillights same as the present model and a black bumper. So far, the test mules spotted in India and Australia are exactly same as the model displayed at Automobile Barcelona in May.
Interior of the new generation Mahindra Scorpio Getaway also dons several updates and become more attractive compared to its predecessor. Expect some additional features to be introduced in order to make it more appealing. Meanwhile, Mahindra is unlikely to bring the single-cab variant in India as it needs to be registered as a commercial vehicle in the country.

Speaking about powertrain, new generation Mahindra Scorpio Getaway is likely to get the same 2.2-litre mHawk turbocharged diesel engine under the hood that works in the current Mahindra Scorpio as well. This engine is capable of churning out 120 PS of peak power and 280 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duty will be done by a 5-speed manual gearbox. While the Australian market-spec model gets AWD, it is not sure if the India-spec model will get the same or not.
