The refreshed Mahindra Scorpio was launched today in India. We informed you earlier about the same- Read here. The pricing for the new Mahindra Scorpio starts at Rs 9.97 lakh (ex-showroom), making it around Rs 4000 dearer than the outgoing model.

Here is the variant-wise pricing:

S7 2WD (140PS) Rs 12.99
S11 2WD Rs 14.79
S11 4WD Rs 16.01


Engine

As suspected earlier, the new Scorpio gets the same 2.2-litre mHawk diesel motor but in a different state of tune. This engine now makes 140PS of power and 320Nm of torque (20PS and 40Nm more that outgoing model). The engine comes mated to a 6-Speed manual gearbox. The all-wheel-drive variant also comes with a shift on fly feature that allows the driver to switch between 2WD and 4WD at the flick of a button.
The base variant is still powered by the 2.5-litre m2DICR diesel motor and the 1.99-litre diesel motor is still offered for Delhi NCR region. Here are the variant-wise power figures-

  • S3 – 75PS
  • S5, S7 – 120PS / 280Nm
  • S7 & S11 – 140PS / 320Nm (optional 4WD on S11)

Design

The design of the car has received minor changes. This includes a new front grille and headlamps with projector lamps. The front bumper now has larger air scoops and more effective foglamps. From the sides, one can notice that there is a modified body cladding and 17-inch alloys. The rear tailgate is redesigned to look more subtle, and the plastic cladding from the middle is removed now.

Interiors & Features

The interiors of the new Scorpio remains unchanged, having a two-tone theme. The new update is the faux leather seats, steering and gear lever. An infotainment system is a 6-inch unit with phone connectivity via Bluetooth. However, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have been given a miss. This seems like a missed opportunity for Mahindra. The Scorpio does get other new-age features like tyre pressure monitoring system, cruise control, projector headlamps, and rain sensing wipers. The safety features include ABS, EBD, digital immobiliser, and reverse parking assist.
