The next-generation Mahindra Scorpio will go on sale in India in 2020.
It is no secret that Mahindra is working on a range of new models for the Indian market. The company will also introduce the next-generation versions of the XUV500, Scorpio and Thar. Testing of the next-gen Scorpio and Thar has already been started. Both these models are expected to be launched in the market in 2020. A new rendering based on the spy images preview the 2020 Mahindra Scorpio.
While the test images didn’t reveal much about the design, it is visible that the new Mahindra Scorpio has grown in size. The Scorpio SUV has been on sale for the past 2 decade and is currently one of the most popular models currently on sale in our market. The next-generation Mahindra Scorpio will be bigger, more spacious, premium and feature loaded than the current model.
The next-generation Mahindra Scorpio is expected to be unveiled at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo. It is likely to go on sale in the second half of 2020. To be based on the thoroughly updated version of the current GEN3 platform, the 2020 Mahindra Scorpio will be longer than the existing car. The rendering also suggests that the next model will have extended rear overhang. The rendering has strong beltline runs across the length, while the bigger wheel arches with new alloys give it a muscular design.
The front fascia of the next-generation Mahindra Scorpio is likely to get newly developed grille with similarities with Mahindra XUV300 and new headlamp unit with LED daytime running lights. At the back, the SUV will have newly designed LED taillights, roof integrated spoiler, and new bumper with skid plates. The cabin will be all-new, benefitted with modern day features like touchscreen, automatic AC and others. The vehicle will also get forward facing third row of seats.
The next Mahindra Scorpio will receive the new 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine, which will also power the next Thar and XUV500 in different states of tunes. For Scorpio, this powertrain could be tuned to produce around 160bhp and 350Nm of torque. Both manual and automatic versions are likely to be on offer, while the all-wheel-drive system will be restricted to the top variant. The SUV is also likely to receive a turbocharged petrol engine.
