Mahindra Scorpio Interiors Spied – Launch In Early 2022?

Mahindra is busy with the launches of a plethora of SUVs for the Indian market planned for the next couple of years. The calendar of the homegrown carmaker seems to be booked with SUVs across various segments. We had earlier reported the testing of the TUV300 as Bolero Neo which might launch in late 2021. Now, there have been spy images of the interiors of the upcoming iconic Scorpio on the internet. The images are quite clear and the entire cabin of the Scorpio is visible. Mahindra will introduce the veteran ladder-frame SUV in a modern avatar sometime late this year or early 2022. Let us take a look at what Scorpio promises to be once it is launched.

Mahindra Scorpio – Spy Images

The interiors and design of the centre console are visible in the spy images quite clearly. It seems that the Scorpio will get a large Touchscreen Infotainment Display, plenty of physical buttons for climate and audio controls, Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control, Upright Air-Con Vents, Multi-Purpose Steering Wheels with Control, Digital/Part-Digital Driver’s Instrument Cluster, Traditional Parking Brake Lever. We expect that the Infotainment System will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth Connectivity, Connected Car Tech, Voice Commands, Sturdy Interiors, Spacious Cabin, Off-Roading Capabilities, Multiple Drive Modes and much more. This will be a clear departure from the relatively utilitarian cabin of the existing model on sale and will ensure a modern approach.

Mahindra Scorpio – Expected Exteriors

The exteriors are also likely to be significantly different in comparison to the current Scorpio with plenty of modern bits. The new Scorpio will be based on a new platform that will impact changes in the overall dimensions of the SUV. According to a teaser seen earlier, there has been a glimpse of DLRs in the sand and we expect the Scorpio to come with features like alloy wheels, all-four disc brakes, typical slated front grille, overall tall silhouette, sideways opening rear door, side-step to facilitate easier ingress, projector headlamp unit, sporty bumper with skid plates and fog lamp unit on the edges of the bumper. We know that this will continue to be a body-on-frame SUV like the previous generation Scorpio and be based on the same platform as the Mahindra Thar. The Scorpio might be offered in 6, 7 or 8-seat configurations since it is catered to the semi-urban market particularly. The priority will be on enhancing and maximizing the practicality aspect of the vehicle.

Mahindra Scorpio – Expected Powertrains and Prices

The next-gen Mahindra Scorpio will share the engines with the Thar. That means it will likely get a 2.2-litre diesel engine making 132 hp and a 2.0-litre direct-injection turbo petrol (from the Mahindra’s own mStallion family), making a decent 152 hp. Like the Thar, the Scorpio will likely come with 6-speed manual or automatic transmission options for both engines. Not to mention, the 4×4 setup will also be available with some variants like before. This being a body-on-frame SUV, might not have any direct rivals but there will be rivals according to the price point. We expect the all-new Scorpio to range between Rs 13 lakh and Rs 18 lakh, ex-showroom making it compete against the likes of MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari, Hyundai Alcazar and the likes.
