Spied – New Mahindra Scorpio fully revealed ahead of September 25 launch
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Second major intervention for the SUV since its launch.
Here are the first images revealing the new Mahindra Scorpio sans camouflage, courtesy of Team BHP.
The front fascia of the SUV is redone with rectangular headlight elements with integrated LED daytime running lights and projector beams. Designers have retained the vertical grille arrangement of the car and the bonnet is redesigned to house a less pronounced hood scoop. On top-end variants, the grille will get chrome elements.
Over to the rear, the new Scorpio does not boast any drastic changes. Grab handles have been provided above the taillights for easier ingress. The taillight elements are new and feature LEDs, and the tailgate sees a redesign for the windscreen. A black plastic applique, which seems a bit unnecessary, is on the tailgate carrying a silver enclosure for the registration plate.
An interior image reveals a new center console with a large touchscreen music system, automatic climate control and revised plastic and colors for the dashboard.
The new Scorpio has its market launch on September 25. It will continue with existing engines, though the gearbox and the suspension system, we hear, have been improved.
Competitors: Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano, Tata Safari Storme
Expected Price: INR 8.5-13 lakhs, ex-showroom
