Mahindra has been extensively testing the Scorpio facelift in the country. The vehicle is likely to go on sale by the festive season. This time the vehicle has been spied again with fresh images giving us the important information of the vehicle. The spotted vehicle was covered; it features a new hood scoop, newly designed headlamps, HID/Projector headlamps instead of the regular bulbs.
The Scorpio facelift gets newly designed bumper and grille, which on closer look resembles the bigger XUV500. The side profile of the SUV looks similar to the current model. Along with the refreshed front fascia, the new Scorpio gets a slightly revised rear bumper, tailgate and new LED tail lamps. The spotted vehicle also features automatic headlamps and wipers, and independent headlamp for high and low beam.
For the first time, the interiors of the updated Scorpio are fully revealed. The vehicle seems to be heavily inspired from the XUV500 and several features including steering wheel are directly lifted from the bigger sibling. Inside the cabin, the SUV gets an all-new dashboard and new instrument cluster. Also visible is the 7-inch touchscreen with Built in Navigation system. The other features on offer includes tiretronics, reverse assist, automatic climate control, driver information system, charging slots on all 3 rows and lounge lights.
The vehicle also gets rear AC vents; however, the rear seat space is still not spacious enough. Powering the vehicle is the same 2.2-litre mHawk engine producing 120PS and a 2.5-litre m2DiCR engine that produces 75PS. Both the engines will be paired to either six-speed automatic or five-speed manual gearbox. It is equipped with cruise control and hill hold/hill descent function.
Mr. Charan Kumar has spotted this vehicle near Devanhalli NH-7. According to him, the updated Scorpio remains stable on high speed and driver managed to touch 150kmph without any sign of instability. He further added that the clutch, steering and gearbox are on the lighter side and precise. The company has reportedly worked upon the NVH levels, and there are no vibrations and engine noise inside the cabin.
