Previous spy pictures of the 2018 Mahindra Scorpio have revealed a revised tail lamp cluster with red tint stop lamp glass replacing the clear lens glass present currently.

Unconfirmed media reports point towards an increase of 20 bhp in the power output of the 2.2 L mHawk diesel that does duty on the Scorpio. The Scorpio facelift is also expected to reintroduce automatic variants armed with an Aisin-sourced 6-speed automatic transmission. 4WD will continue to be offered.

The Scorpio will also gain a new 7-inch touchscreen with Connected Apps and Ecosense. All Mahindra products will receive Android Auto within September 2018 as confirmed by a report that emerged last month. However, the same report adds that the Scorpio facelift will not get the feature at the time of its launch.
