The facelift will bring about a new front fascia for the Scorpio which will see the inclusions of redesigned headlights with projector elements, a new grille and a new bumper. New alloy wheel patterns and LED taillights should complete the visual changes on the SUV.

Inside, Mahindra have redone the design of the dashboard also giving the Scorpio the XUV500’s steering wheel and a new instrument cluster. Mechanical changes, sources tell Indian Autos Blog, will come in the form of a better suspension system and improved NVH levels. The 2.2-liter diesel engine will continue unchanged.
