Spy pictures of the Mahindra Scorpio facelift continue to pour in as its launch nears. CarToq has shared an image of a lightly camouflaged test unit. Enhancements to the features and powertrain will accompany cosmetic updates.
The Mahindra Scorpio facelift will get an updated tail lamp cluster ditching the clear lens design of the current model. The rear wiper in these spy shots appears to be identical to the current model, but previous spy shots have revealed the switch to the premium beam type unit. The 'Intelli-Hybrid' badge remains as this could be an old prototype. After GST, Mahindra has decided to give the technology a miss.
The presence of wheel covers indicates that this particular unit is a lower level trim of the Scorpio. Up front, the Scorpio facelift will gain a new bumper with round fog lamp units and an Imperio-like toothed grille. New alloy wheels will also be a part of the updates to the Scorpio.
The Scorpio is likely to gain connectivity apps introduced on the XUV500 including the Connected Apps suite, Ecosense, and Emergency Call function. Android Auto will find its way to the Scorpio as well, but at a later stage according to report published in August.
Under the hood, the 2.2 L mHawk diesel will be re-tuned for more power and torque. The power figure is likely to be bumped up to 140 hp. Automatic variants will be reintroduced armed with an Aisin-sourced 6-speed transmission.
