Spied – Mahindra Scorpio facelift spotted testing, again

Posted on: Oct 16, 2013 - 5:38pm IST

The Mahindra Scorpio facelift has been caught testing once again, and this image comes from our friends at Motorbeam who spotted the mule in Karjat, Maharashtra. While we have shown you plenty of spy images of the refreshed Scorpio testing, this spyshot is a bit weird.

As you would have figured out by now, this Scorpio is sporting the front bumper from the Mahindra Xylo! No, we don’t think Mahindra are really considering launching a Scorpio with a Xylo’s bumper and calling it a ‘facelift’. The Xylo bumper is a donor part or organ used on the prototype. You may see it until the design of the facelift’s bumper is finalized and is ready for tests.

What continues to be consistent though is the camouflage on the bonnet and the lack of the headlight cluster. This leads us to believe that Mahindra is still working on the design of these components. In certain Scoprio test mules, we have also seen the bootlid completely camouflaged and this could be another difference in the refresh.

The renewed Scorpio is expected to launch next year. As recent sales figures suggest, Mahindra need not necessarily update the Scorpio given that 4,345 units were sold in the month of September and an average of 4,135 units were sold every month in the period of January to September 2013.

Mahindra also launched the Scoprio special edition recently priced at INR 11.88 lakhs.

    My suggestion is that with the same sheet, perhaps the vehicles could be made more sleek looking. Taper the roofline towards the back, redesign the taillamp which looks outdate, straighten the layout lines of front door, back door and luggage compartment, etc… Make it more smooth but rugged..

    Thats a old scorpio with Xylo’s front right?? The bumper and grill? No? Grill could be from Bolero…

    Looks better when camouflaged. Don’t know how will it look in real.

    The scorpio needs to do away with what I call Monsoon drains on the roof line and have integrated water drains as in all other modern cars/suv s.

      Akhil, I totally second that. You just cannot drive when the it rains heavily. The wiper is just not able to its job.

    The headlamp cluster might be a swept back ones similar to New Ssanyong Korando…could feature Projector units…
