The "muscular" Scorpio looks does not pertain only to the Scorpio anymore. Mahindra has launched the 2009 edition of the Pik-Up (Scorpio Getaway) in Australia with the saw tooth and essential safety features.
The cosmetic changes see a new front bumper design, headlight and foglamp housings, bonnet scoop and pull-type door handles from the new Scorpio.
In the cabin, better suited seats, longer seatbelts, new electrically-adjustable rear-view mirrors and stereo which is MP3-compatible with USB and SD card inputs debut. Steering wheel-mounted audio controls are now a standard feature on the Pik-Up.
Essential safety features like ABS and standard dual front airbags, as well as pre-tensioning seatbelts sourced from local supplier Autoliv receive appreciation.
The engine and the gearbox is the same, mechanically, the updated Pik-Up is no different to the previous model. The 2.5 litre turbodiesel and five-speed manual transmission with a 4×4 and 4×2 drivetrain continues to live on.
The Mahindra Pik-Up range is available either as a single or dual-cab layout, with cab/chassis and ute variant.
