Here is a spy video of the 2014 Mahindra Scorpio while it was caught testing in Nashik, Maharashtra. The video was captured by Neil Murali, a Team BHP member.
As the video reveals, Mahindra has redesigned the front fascia of the Scorpio, and based on previous spyshots, it appears that projector headlights have found their way onto the car. The hood scoop of the Scorpio has also faced a redesign to sync better with the looks of the SUV.

At the rear, designers are reported to have changed the vertical taillight arrangement to a rectangularly-shaped layout, while the bumpers and alloy wheels will also get a thorough redesign.
Inside, the refreshed Scorpio will now share its steering wheel with the XUV500, while the circularly-shaped aircon vents are replaced with rectangular vents featuring chrome surrounds. The entertainment system is also believed to be upgraded to a more modern touchscreen unit.
Mechanically, the Scorpio facelift will use the same 2.2-liter mHawk diesel engine which comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
Mahindra is expected to unveil the Scorpio facelift at the upcoming Auto Expo next month, and sales of the refreshed SUV would commence by June this year.
