The cabin, especially of the double cab model, will be largely similar to the current Scorpio's interior.

Now, the new-gen Mahindra Scorpio has been spotted testing in India a few times now. While initially, it led us to believe it will be launched in India, but last year Mahindra told us that the company will be making the new-gen model only for the export markets. Having said that seeing how Mahindra has been updating its line-up, the carmaker might launch the new-gen Scorpio Getaway in India as well, later this year.
