New gen Mahindra Scorpio (facelift) spied with no camouflage
Front fascia of soon-to-launch Mahindra Scorpio facelift is new, with a redesigned front grille, bumpers, headlamps and fog lamps. Front grille is shorter, and vertical slats are blacked out, to look aggressive. Chrome ornament surrounding Mahindra badge is removed. Another prominent enhancement is sleek looking smoked headlamps, which now house two headlights each, one for low, and other for high beam. New headlamps on 2014 Scorpio feature LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL). Subtle streak on top of grille complimenting DRLs on either side is an appreciable touch. Front bumper is muscular with new fog lamp enclosures aligning with headlamp design. Bonnet lines on new gen Scorpio are more flamboyant, and air scoop is redesigned. Outside Rear View Mirror (ORVM) looks similar to earlier model.
Rear guise of new generation Scorpio receives substantial changes not in terms of basic structure or silhouette, but trims/accents look new. Rear glass area is notably reduced by new rear door design that incorporates new matte black motif that surrounds number plate recess, and runs widthwise. There is also a new silver-esque surround for licence plate region. On either side of rear windshield, there are sizeable handles that will aid in entering/exiting, or to reach overhead. Another conspicuous mod in new Mahindra Scorpio is clear lensed rear lamp assembly which houses crescent or D shaped tail lights bordering orange and blue lights. Centre stop lamp which used to be mounted on rear lip spoiler is moved to lower position, above rear wind screen. New five spoke alloy wheels look trendy and does justice to overall car appearance.
Booking for new Mahindra Scorpio facelift is open at all dealerships as well as on Snapdeal for Rs. 20,000. Delivery/waiting period is approximately 4 to 6 weeks from launch date. Mahindra plans to sell more than usual 50,000 units per year, and gears up for an auspicious start this festive season.
