Spied – Mahindra Scorpio facelift & mildly updated Bolero caught on test


Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The Mahindra Scorpio facelift has been spotted on test near Surat, Gujarat, recently. Along with the Scorpio facelift, a mildly camouflaged Bolero was also seen.

The Bolero was last updated in August 2011. Sales of the SUV have shown no signs of slowing down though.

Speaking about the Bolero facelift first, we notice a thin layer of camouflage on the bumpers and wheel arches of the SUV. The Bolero was last updated in August 2011 which saw the addition of a digital dashboard, a new engine and minor cosmetic changes. Mahindra might want to freshen up the Bolero to hide its age, but clearly sales have shown no signs of lag.

On the contrary, sales of the Bolero have increased with its age with Mahindra selling in excess of 100,000 units/annum in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Coming to the Scorpio facelift, various spyshots have revealed new details about the SUV. In our previous update, the Scorpio facelift was snapped wearing LED taillights, a feature which is not seen in these images. The front fascia of this test mule sports tinted headlights, and it is believed that on the top-end variant, projector headlights would come standard.

Inside, the refreshed Scorpio has been caught with a new steering wheel (inspired by that of the XUV500’s), a revised center console and redesigned AC vents.

While there could be minor mechanical improvements to the car, we expect the engine, a 2.2-liter 120 bhp unit, to be carried unchanged.
