The next-gen Mahindra Scorpio will be larger in dimensions and will look much more urban than now. The interiors will also get a major overhaul.
Mahindra seems to be gearing up rather well for Auto Expo 2020 with a slew of next-generation models of their SUVs. The Mahindra Thar has been spotted on numerous occasions since the beginning of this current month, and this time around another set of spy shots of Mahindra’s another SUV have surfaced on the web. Its the 2020 Mahindra Scorpio which is planned to get one of the greatest overhauls of its life cycle to confirm to forthcoming regulations and safety standards.
Going by the pictures, expect that the 2020 Scorpio should get refreshed measurements. The lower roofline and bigger extents on the SUV with an upstanding front makes it look somewhat more urban. However, the hood scoop seems to have gone away. The slated Mahindra grille will make its appearance on the Scorpio for the first time. The test vehicle further uncovers flared wheel curves, and a marginally raked windshield.
Inside, the new Mahindra Scorpio is relied upon to get a total update. It will have better materials and better fit and finish too alongside Pininfarina design elements. There will also be a bigger touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, multi-function steering wheel and other connectivity features among others.
The next-gen Mahindra Scorpio will keep on with the ladder-on-frame chassis, in any case, Mahindra is attempting to upgrade its body control. The SUV is likewise expected to be fueled by the BS6 compliant 2.0-liter diesel motor that will knock the power yield to 158 bhp, from the current 138 bhp on offer. Transmission options will include a six-speed manual transmission and an automatic will also be on offer alongside All-Wheel Drive. The next-gen Mahindra Scorpio can also be expected to get a petrol engine directly from the beginning, given the stringent emission norms of the future.
Mahindra is expected to exhibit the all-new Scorpio at the 2020 Auto Expo, before it advances toward showrooms. When it finally comes to the market, the Mahindra Scorpio will equal the up and coming seven-seater form of the MG Hector and Tata Harrier (displayed as the Buzzard at the 2019 Geneva engine appear), alongside different SUVs like the up and coming Ford and Maruti Suzuki models.
