Mahindra XUV500

The New Scorpio will be available in multiple seating options of 7, 8 & 9. The new SUV gets some cosmetic updates to its exterior along with new features on the inside. At the sides, the indicators have now moved to the outside rearview mirrors from the front fenders and it now rides on a set of new five-spoke alloy wheels. It comes packed with features like 2-Din audio system with CD, USB and Aux-in, tweeters and speakers, electrically adjusting ORVM, driver's seat height adjust, front centre armrest, chrome-finished AC vents, silver-finished grille inserts, projector headlamps, puddle lamps, remote central locking, rear parking sensors, rear washer, wiper and defogger, rear spoiler and an option of seven-seat with side facing last row and eight-seat with front facing last row. The tail gate has been redesigned, which now features a chrome number plate garnish. Mahindra Scorpio had been one of the top sellers from the Mahindra stable and the newly launched Scorpio facelift will further strengthen Scorpio's position in the segment. It comes loaded with many advanced technology features like projector headlamps with static bending technology, 6-inch touch-screen infotainment with Global Positioning System, fully automatic temperature control, etc. The twin-pod instrument cluster has been carried over from the outgoing model.

While the base model of the new Scorpio facelift - S3 will get Mahindra's older m2DICR engine, rest of the trims S5, S7 and S11 will carry the tried and tested 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. The update that has come after a gap of three years will not only offer a fresh new appeal to the new Mahindra Scorpio but will also boost its place in the segment. While the base variant will churn out a 120 bhp and 280 Nm of peak torque the powerful version of the new Scorpio facelift will produce 140 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The S11 variant also comes with optional four-wheel drive.
