The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio, judging by the camouflage, gets redesigned grille, bumpers, hood, foglamp, taillight and alloy wheel designs.

The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio will feature a new grille with chrome inserts similar in design to the Mahindra Imperio, as well as restyled bumper with horizontal slats for the intake. Camouflage around the posterior hints at a new bumper, reflective strips and tail lamp graphics. Dimensions are expected to match the current model, which is 4,456 mm in length, 1,820 mm in width and 1,930 mm/1,995 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,680 mm.

The interior is yet to be photographed, but expect freshness through a new colour theme, upholstery and trim, as well as 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, EcoSense and Connected Apps downloaded from the 2017 Mahindra XUV500. Like the current model, a set of jump seats for the third row is likely.
