Mahindra Scorpio Facelift



The Mahindra Scorpio facelift will be launched today and its prices are likely to remain more or less the same since it’s a mid-cycle update. The Tata Safari Storme remains its arch-rival as before, along with other compact SUVs such as the Renault Duster, Captur and the Hyundai Creta.  



Mahindra Scorpio Facelift: Highlights 




  • As per the spy shots, it gets a new Jeep-inspired grille with seven slats and subtly redesigned front bumper 

  • At the sides, the indicators have now moved to the outside rearview mirrors from the front fenders and it now rides on a set of new five-spoke alloy wheels 

  • At the rear, it gets a subtly redesigned license plate housing and bumper, while the pre-facelift model's clear-lense tail lamps have been ditched

  • The interior continues to feature the same light and dark theme. There’s a new upholstery on offer, along with a bigger 7-inch infotainment system compared to the previous 6.5-inch unit

  • The updated Scorpio will be powered by the 140PS version of the 2.2-litre mHawk, which is found under the hood of the XUV500. There’s a decent 20PS power boost, while the overall torque sees a healthy 50Nm boost. It will continue to feature the Mahindra Micro-Hybrid tech as before
