The PARS SCOUT 6x6 armored vehicle differs from other members of the PARS wheeled armored family with its two-seat cabin at the front of the vehicle, featuring transparent armour (ballistic glass) and a 230° horizontal viewing angle. This cabin ensures high driving safety and situational awareness for the personnel on-board.

The PARS 6X6 SCOUT has a power-to-weight ratio of 25-30 Hp/ton, powered by a diesel engine. The PARS 6X6 SCOUT Powerpack consists of a diesel engine, coupled with a fully automatic transmission which generates a maximum road speed of up to 100 km/h and is capable of maneuvering on 60% vertical and 30% horizontal gradients, climbing 60 cm-high obstacles and crossing 120 cm-wide trenches. The vehicle has 6x6 and 6x4 driving characteristics, and all of its axles can be locked when necessary. When used in amphibious mode, the PARS SCOUT 6x6 can reach speeds of up to 8 km/s.

The PARS 6X6 SCOUT hull can be brought to the level of protection required by the user thanks to its modular designed armor system. The hull shape, underbelly structure, base plates and specially developed mine-resistant seats are all designed to protect personnel against high-level mine threats. The PARS 6x6 SCOUT offers the protection level of mine-resistant vehicles produced for personnel transport, while also possessing the capabilities expected of a modern armoured combat vehicle.
