With all the official trailers by Mahindra about the new Scorpio N, it is possible to draft a comparison between the new and the old Scorpio.
The new Mahindra Scorpio N has been teased in the official videos by the carmaker and we compare the design and specs with the current-gen model. In its current version, the Scorpio is a rugged SUV that is immensely capable of taking on abuse. This could be in terms of making it to remote areas with little to no roads or packing it with a ton of people and used as a commercial vehicle. It has proven its mettle over the 2 decades of its lifetime in our market. However, Mahindra wants to introduce the new-gen model as a more premium offering placed in a segment above. Our 2022 Mahindra Scorpio N vs Old Scorpio comparison will help you with the details as well as the difference between the new and the old SUV.

2022 Mahindra Scorpio N vs Old Scorpio – Design Comparison
While the old version is quite good-looking and has an upright stance, the new model will be a bit more elongated with the third quarter being reminiscent of the erstwhile XUV500. The window line, wheel arches and roof are designed to make it look like a premium mid-size SUV rather than a utilitarian product. The front end will feature the vertical slats finished in chrome, the headlamps will be LED units with C-shaped LED DRLs surrounding the fog lamp housing on the bumper below, the indicators are visible in the video to be integrated into the headlamp cluster, the alloy wheels sport a modern design, and the tail-end will carry vertically mounted LED taillamps.
