2022 Mahindra Scorpio N will grow in dimensions making it both longer and wider as compared to the current gen Scorpion
2022 Mahindra Scorpio N is set to make a strong statement on its arrival. It is slated to be launched on 27th June 2022 and unofficial bookings have commenced at dealership level. Official teasers and leaks have drawn our attention to much of its exterior and interior feature updates that it will receive over its current counterpart.
Boasting of a bold design language with some features borrowed from the XUV700, the 2022 Scorpio N will get LED lighting at the front and rear, a new grille with the company’s brand new Twin Peaks logo in the center, and new alloy wheel design. Even as the new Mahindra Scorpio N sees these exterior updates to differentiate itself from the older model, it is in the interiors that get more attention.
