Facelift Mahindra Scorpio base variant spied on test
Mahindra Scorpio is not a new car, but it still continues to stir excitement in the minds of car buyers. Imagine how much more excited buyers will be to note that the company is working on a facelift variant of Mahindra Scorpio which should be launched later this year. Caught on test recently, the new Scorpio will come in a more stylish format with better interior comforts.
New Mahindra Scorpio was spotted on test on Indian roads in complete camouflage state. But, it could be easily recognizable as having a front end inspired by that of Mahindra XUV500 along with a signature 5 bar grille. At the rear was seen a side hinged door for lodging of spare wheel while its differential indicated that the upcoming Scorpio will have a 4×4 version.
Engine details are likely to remain same in the form of a 2.2 liter engine with advanced mHawk technology offering 120 bhp peak power and 290 Nm torque while being mated to a five speed manual gearbox, a 2.5 L m2DiCR engine producing 75 BHP of power will also be offered with the new Scorpio.
Launched over 10 years ago, the Mahindra Scorpio has been an iconic car, generating average sales of 4,000 units every month. Apart from this, Mahindra is also working on a new generation Scorpio, which will be launched in 2017. It will be based on a monocoque chassis leading to better road handling conditions.
