2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift spied testing in Nashik
2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift has been spotted testing on a number of occasions in the recent past. Recently, we managed to catch the car in Nashik. Sporting a new front fascia with projector headlamps and revised grille and bumper along with LED tail lamps, the basic body shell remains much the same as seen on its present counterpart.
Interiors of the 2014 Scorpio facelift receives a better design with use of quality material thus giving the interiors a premium finish and relating to better value for money.
2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift takes its steering wheel design from the current XUV 500 with better controls. A new instrument cluster is also evident on the models on test while air conditioning vents have been upgraded to a better design. A new multimedia system sits on the centre console while the company aims to position the new Scorpio facelift as a more up market SUV.
Mostly, there will be no changes made to engine specs as 2014 Mahindra Scorpio continues to be powered by same 2.2 mHawk engine offering 120 PS power and a 2.5 liter m2DiCR engine offering 75PS mated to a five speed manual. A five speed automatic is also in the works. However, a tuned up version may be possible so as to deliver better power and higher level of efficiency.
Mahindra Scorpio reclaimed its position as the best selling SUV in India from Renault Duster. However, with the Ford EcoSport, Nissan Terrano an mini SUVs from Hyundai and Maruti, the ageing Scorpio was in need of some urgent reconstructive surgery, something it has not received in the past five years.
