The very aggressive looking Getaway is Mahindra & Mahindra’s first of its kind pick up style SUV built on the Scorpio platform. The array of features has been designed specifically for comfort, style and safety. It looks like the Scorpio when seen from the front with a high and imposing deportment. The bonnet sports an air scoop that looks classy and the clear lens headlights are good looking as well. The loading space is ample at 1125 mm and a big load tray with roll bars.
It is currently between at Rs 8.80 L and Rs 9.80 L (Ex-Showroom Price, New Delhi) but the price will vary according to the place.
The high ground clearance of 180 mm makes going off the road look simple. There is also the option of a 4WD for the dirt tracks. The suspension setup at the front and rear provide adequate cushioning on those rough patches. The safety features include SRS air bags, ABS and fortified crumple zones. The disc brakes in front and the drum brakes at the rear work efficiently and the tubeless tyres provide a good grip on all surfaces in all conditions. The car while built to perform duties in an urban setup is equally adept when taken outside its comfort zone.
The Scorpio Getaway is powered by a turbocharged 2.6 litre CRDe diesel engine that churns out 277 Nm of torque at 1700 rpm and 115 bhp at 3800 rpm. The engine is mated to a five speed manual transmission setup that has short ratios but long throws and compliments the torque speed well. The rated fuel efficiency of the Getaway is 12.8 kmpl.
The interiors of the Scorpio Getaway are designed elegantly with a wood finish console and leather upholstery. The electrically operated ORVM’s and adjustable steering add to the driving comforts. The side steps make ingress and egress easy while the illumination inside the passenger cabin is theatre styled to give it that contemporary feel.
