Mahindra Scorpio facelift spied inside out, bearing a finished design
Posted on: Dec 16, 2013 - 2:09pm IST
Eagle-eyed readers of Tamil motoring magazine Motor Vikatan have caught the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio facelift on camera. The heavily-camouflaged test mule was spotted near Coimbatore.
The spied mule suggests that from our previous sightings, the Scorpio has been given new headlamps. Given how camouflaged the front fascia is, it is likely that the Scorpio is being handed a refreshed front grille, tinted headlamps and bumpers. The camouflage material makes the Scorpio appear wider and longer, but it’s unlikely to happen.
On the interior, the test mule looks to have a different dashboard compared to the current Scorpio. While the current model has round dials for the cluster, the test mule has a flatter instrument cluster. The centre console has changed as well, with what looks like a screen – or space allocated for a screen – moving north parallel to the air conditioner vent rather than stay below the vents. The test mule also has a slit above the glovebox.
Given the comprehensive changes between the spotted test mules, it’s likely that the design has been signed off on, which is a further indication that the model is up for launch.
Over the last three months, the Scorpio has sold 13,169 units, beating the Renault Duster which did 12,254 units.
