IAB Picks – 8 SUVs launching in India in the next 3 years
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Forget the sub-4 meter SUVs/crossovers we covered a few weeks ago. The cars listed here, in comparison to the compact SUVs, can be considered full-sized. These cars have a more rugged appeal, get seven seats, and some have the 4×4 option.
1. Mahindra Scorpio Facelift
The Mahindra Scorpio facelift has been testing for over a year now and we should see the car launch by the middle of the year. We can confirm that the refreshed Scorpio gets a redone interior inspired by the XUV500, while the design of the front fascia is thoroughly revised with inclusion of projector headlights. At the back, the test cars sport LED taillights.
Do not expect any drastic mechanical changes as the current 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine would continue doing duty on the updated Scorpio. The engine could be tweaked for better emissions and fuel efficiency.
