Coming to the spy pictures, the front might look acceptable to many – but the rear seems a bit overly done. The front gets double barrel headlamps (projector in the top-end variant) with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), restyled grille and bumper design. Changes to the sheet metal include on a bonnet, fenders and trunk lid. The new Scorpio also gets a revised wheel arches and 5-spoke alloy wheels that make the vehicle look macho.
The interesting part of the new Scorpio is at the rear, Mahindra has replaced the X’mas tree like tail lights with the regular ones, but what’s that blue colouring in the tail light? The black finish in the trunk lid has been incorporated well, than again what’s the handle doing above the tail lights? Is new Scorpio the 11-seater vehicle 😉 !
On the inside, the new Scorpio gets a refreshed dashboard with chrome-lined air conditioning vents and buttons for the automatic climate control. The 6” inch touch-screen infotainment system has also been carried over from the XUV5oo featuring navigation system and the rear view camera display. Additionally, the controls for the power windows are likely to be moved from the centre console to the door panels.
As said above, the new Scorpio will use the same 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine from the outgoing model, similarly the base variant too will still come with the 2.5-litre m2Dicr engine. All variants will be rear wheel driven and will use 5-speed manual transmissions. The four-wheel-drive and automatic transmission equipped Scorpio facelift variants will launched in due course of time.
