Mahindra has launched the automatic variant of the new Scorpio in two trims – S10 2WD AT at Rs 13,13,701 (ex-showroom Delhi) and the S10 4WD AT at Rs 14,32,976 (both prices ex-showroom, Delhi), approximately Rs 1.5 lakh more than the equivalent manual trim. The Scorpio AT is the only SUV with 4WD to feature an 6-speed automatic transmission.
As said above the automatic variant will be available on the top-end S10 trim level of the SUV in both – two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. Powering the Scorpio AT is the same 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder mHawk diesel engine as the manual transmission version. This engine develops 120 BHP of power and 280 Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
This top-end S10 trim is equipped with static bending projector headlamps, LED eyebrows, a 6-inch touchscreen infotainment system Bluetooth, CD, DVD, USB and Aux-in connectivity and navigation, height-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic climate control, rain and light sensors, tyre pressure monitoring system and dual front airbags. The four-wheel drive version gets a Shift-on-Fly feature.
Design-wise, the Scorpio AT carries the same look as present in existing top S10 version of Scorpio, except the automatic badge placed across the body. The launch comes just a week after the launch of the new Hyundai Creta.
