Mahindra Scorpio N Z2 Base Model Features
From the outside, there are a few distinctions between the base and the top variant. To begin with, the front grille in the base trim is blacked-out, while in the top trim it is garnished with chrome. The dual-barrel headlamps are halogen units in the base trim and LEDs on the top trim. The C-shaped LED DRLs around the fog lamp housing is missing on the base version. On the sides, the biggest difference lies in the 17-inch steel wheels without wheel covers. The higher variants get 18-inch alloy wheels. At the rear, you won’t find much of a difference save the rear wiper and defogger.

On the inside, you will be greeted by a part-digital instrument cluster with an MID at the centre with a monotone display where the information will be displayed. In addition to that, there will be no AdrenoX infotainment system and no Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, there are steering-mounted controls and fabric upholstery which makes this base trim not too bad to consider.

One major downside to the base model in the diesel version is the detuned engine. The base model comes with the same 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine but it produces only 132 PS and 300 Nm of peak power and torque. In the higher variants, the same engine makes a healthy 175 PS and 400 Nm with an automatic transmission. Also, there is hydraulic steering on offer with the base diesel variant compared to electric power steering in the higher trims. Until the first 25,000 bookings, the prices of the Scorpio N range from Rs 11.99 lakh to Rs 19.49 lakh, ex-showroom excluding the 4×4 and automatic trims.
