It has been a while since Mahindra has been testing the 2014 Scorpio facelift on Indian roads. If media reports are to be believed, the Mahindra Scorpio facelift will go on sale in the Indian car market in October 2014. This could be the move to capitalize on the festive mood of Indian buyers.
The 2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift gets changes to both exteriors and interiors. It is equipped with an all-new layered and angular shaped dual-tone dashboard, 7-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation and a rear view camera display. Moreover, this model also has automatic climate control and charging slots for all the three rows, while the power windows switches are placed on the doors. The all-new steering wheel is directly sourced from the XUV500 with buttons on each side for cruise control and audio controls. It also gets all-new instrument cluster with twin dials and new multi-info display which also include tyre pressure monitoring control.
The exterior styling of the Mahindra Scorpio facelift gets a new bumper, grille and headlamps. The side profile remains identical to the current model; however, it will get newly formulated alloys. At the back, the Scorpio facelift SUV features LED tail lamps and restyled bumper.
Under the hood, the Mahindra Scorpio facelift will remain unchanged. It will be propelled by the same 2.2-litre mHawk engine that produces 120bhp and 2.5-litre m2DiCR engine producing 75bhp. Both the engines are paired to a five-speed manual transmission gearbox. The company has also tweaked the suspension and steering mechanism to provide improved driveability.
