Mahindra & Mahindra is gearing up to launch the 2014 Scorpio facelift in the country by the festive season. The SUV has been spotted several times during its test rounds on Indian roads, and the latest test mule of the updated Scorpio gives us the detailed information about the interiors of the SUV. It is the first time that Mahindra Scorpio is receiving a facelift since its arrival in the country way back in 2002.
The 2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift features an all-new layered and angular shaped dual-tone dashboard. The test mule appears of be the top-spec model and is equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation and a rear view camera display. This model also features automatic climate control, while the power-window switches are now moved from the dash to the doors. Adding to it, the Scorpio will get charging slots for all the three rows.
The all-new steering wheel is directly sourced from the XUV500 with evenly poised buttons on each side for cruise control and audio controls. Behind the steering, the all-new instrument cluster features twin dials in futuristic design and new multi-info display which also include tyre pressure monitoring control. The AC vents gets square shape; however, the rear AC lack blower control. Also, visible are the premium dual-tone seat upholstery.
Mahindra has also tweaked the exterior styling of the Scorpio SUV. The vehicle now features a new bumper, grille and headlamps. At the back, the vehicle is likely to get LED tail-lamps and redesigned bumper. The side profile remains unchanged; however, it will get newly designed alloy wheels.
Under the hood, the Mahindra Scorpio facelift will remain unchanged. It will be powered by the same 2.2-litre mHawk engine producing 120bhp and 2.5-litre m2DiCR engine that develops 75bhp. Both the engines are paired to a five-speed manual transmission gearbox.
