Spied – Mahindra Scorpio facelift continues its testing program

Posted on: Sep 25, 2013 - 1:54pm IST

The refreshed Mahindra Scorpio continues to test in India, with these latest spy images coming from Team BHP member Vineeth T. The test mule was spotted on the highways near Bangalore.

The test mule sports dummy headlights while the bonnet has been kept under camouflage.

While earlier spy images showed a Scorpio with camouflaged front and rear ends, these pictures reveal something different. The bootlid seen here is uncamouflaged and is the same as that of the current Scorpio. Mahindra is testing multiple prototypes and we’re still unsure about the cosmetic changes that would eventually find its way to this part of the facelifted Scorpio.

The prototype caught here has its front fascia fully camouflaged and sports dummy headlights, as seen in previous images. The Scorpio seen here also does not feature a rear wiper or alloy wheels, indicating that it could be a base variant on test.

Mahindra will not introduce any mechanical changes when the Scorpio goes under the knife. Speaking of going on sale, reports indicate that the Scorpio facelift could only be launched by late 2014, which is still over a year away.

The Scorpio has been a breadwinner for Mahindra and the company recently sold the 400,000th example since its launch 11 years ago. As the Scorpio aged, sales have only increased with the company managing 50,000 units/annum in the last two years.

    Hi Anjan, Have you test driven the Mahindra Scorpio with the latest auto box from BOSCH. Please let me know. The Scorpio with the Auto box from AVL Australia earlier had lot of issues and it was not tuned properly.

    Thanks in advance.

      Hello Mr. Raja,

      We haven’t driven the Automatic Scorpio yet. However, there are speculations about Mahindra discontinuing that variant.
