Scorpio’s all-new model lineup is said to be introduced to the world in 25th September 2014, which is just a couple of days away. The new Scorpio is the third major facelift, and one last facelift of the current Mahindra Scorpio that has been for almost 11 years now. The majority of changes for the Scorpio would be reserved for the next-generation model which is slated to launch sometime in 2017-18.
The new Scorpio borrows its steering wheel from the XUV500
Couple of days earlier, we reported the new Scorpio facelift spotted without any camouflage in an unknown location. And now our good friends at MotorBeam, have snapped an undisguised pictures of the interiors of the new Scorpio.
The interior is heavily borrowed from the Cheetah-inspired XUV500, while steering wheel and the controls on it are a straight away lifted from the flagship Mahindra. The cabin does look much better than before, the dashboard design is all-new and gone is the grey and beige theme which has been now replaced by black and beige theme. Chrome inserts around the rectangular air-con vents too add a premium touch.
The dashboard of the new Scorpio looks more modern and upmarket than the current model
The faux wood trim is now replaced by a gloss black finish on the centre console, housing the 6” inch touch-screen infotainment system and the climate control air-con knobs. As speculated, the controls for the power windows are moved from the centre console to the door panels. All the buttons seem to be of L size, befitting the SUVs macho character. The rear air-con vent console is re-designed and now comes with a useful storage area.
The new-gen Scorpio (as Mahindra likes to call it that) will be available in six trims (S2, S4, S6, S6+, S8 and S10) with two engine options and 7, 8 and 9 seater configurations. All variants come in five colours – Mist Silver, Diamond White, Fiery Black, Molten Red & Regal Blue – the last two being new colours. Prices and other details of the new Scorpio would be revealed during its launch.
