Spied – 2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift snapped up close

Posted on: Jun 4, 2014 - 11:46am IST

Ahead of its introduction prior to the festival season, the 2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift was snapped up close, with what seems like a cardboard box covering its rear. At the front, the camouflage points to a new front fascia with redesigned headlights, grille, bumper and a repositioned hood scoop.

The Mahindra Scorpio facelift is expected to launch before Diwali.

The taillights of the refreshed Scorpio would feature LED elements, as our previous spy images have shown. Mahindra would also extend newly designed alloy wheels to the SUV.

Inside, spyshots have revealed that the refreshed Scorpio will get a comprehensive makeover to its dashboard and instruments. The steering wheel will come from the Mahindra XUV500, while other soft components like the AC vents and center console, which look a bit old-school in the current car, have been freshened for an upscale appearance.

Cosmetic changes on the outside and a major interior makeover should help the Scorpio sustain volumes.

Under the hood, we don’t expect to see any changes to the 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine powering the current car. This engine is good for 120 bhp at 4,000 rpm and 290 Nm of torque between 1,800-2,800 rpm. Transmission options, a 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic, will be carried over as well.

The Scorpio is a volume spinner for Mahindra, and despite its age, manages to sell about 4,650 units/month (January-April 2014 period).

    Hi Anjan, kindly request Mahindra engineers to must do certain things with new facelift ie. retractable mirrors are must as Scorpio is mainly used in rural or Hilly regions both places in India have narrow roads or lanes . Second ally I May be late but they can design headlamp something what JLR have done with Discovery or Freelander headlamps , Smart key if possible will add premium to its class & fourth they should approach to Toyata suppliers for dashboard soft material as they have recently done Crolla as it’s made in India . Hope Mahindra may be listening ! Waiting for reply ?
