The S3, S5 and S7 (120 bhp) trims will have a 5-speed manual transmission, whereas the S7 (140 bhp) variant will receive a new 6-speed manual transmission. Today as we launch the New All Powerful Scorpio, we have further enhanced its on road presence while retaining its core DNA of power, thrill and adventure. The facelift offers a maximum power of 140 BHP along with a peak torque of 330 Nm.
The updated Mahindra Scorpio is powered by the same tried and tested 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine, but the oil burner now comes in two states of tune - the existing 120 bhp version and a tuned 138 bhp version.
The variant line-up has been revised as well, and power and torque will now vary variant-wise. The engine is linked to an all-new easy shift 6-Speed manual transmission. The S3 is the base variant and will use Mahindra 2.5-litre, four-cylinder m2DICR engine producing 75PS and 200Nm. Mahindra claims that it has also improved the NVH levels on the Scorpio and the SUV now comes with new 6th generation Borg Warner Turbo Charger and 9.1 Bosch ABS.
Visually, the design of the 2017 Mahindra Scorpio largely remains unchanged, but, the SUV does come with a bunch of styling updates, mainly to the front and rear section.
Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd (M&M) on Tuesday launched an updated version of its popular Scorpio.
As per the spy shots, it gets a new Jeep-inspired grille with seven slats and subtly redesigned front bumper. Also, the bumpers are new and so are the fog lights. The new model of Scorpio facelift comes with five options in color, which includes, Molten Red, D Sat Silver, Pearl White (Only on S11), Diamond White (Except S11), and Napoli Black. The taillamps get a red-tint and the rear door misses out on the black plastic cladding. In addition, there is a roof mounted sunglass holder and mobile holder spot.
Coming to the interior, the cabin gets an upholstery change. The most significant improvement comes in the form of a more powerful engine. Tech on the top-spec Scorpio includes cruise control, a tyre pressure monitoring system, automatic headlamps and wipers, automatic climate control and Mahindra's Blue Sense app that allows for control of the infotainment system. The new 2018 Mahindra Scorpio goes on sale at an ex-showroom price of Rs 9.97 lakh. Currently, its biggest rival is the Tata Safari Storme but it also competes with 5-seater SUVs like the Renault Duster, the newly launched Captur and the Hyundai Creta.
