In terms of design, the new Mahindra Scorpio remains largely same, except that the SUV now comes with a host of styling updates, primarily to the front and rear profile. The facelift Scorpio features a new radiator grille which gets a seven-slot unit similar to the Mahindra Imperio's grille.
Along with the revised bumper design, the Scorpio facelift's headlamp cluster has been tweaked to give it a premium touch. Additionally, with the larger fog lamp, housed on the bumper, wider air dam, and a lot more plastic cladding, the new Scorpio looks wider at the front.
Mahindra has even added new faux skid plate at the front and rear bumper. The Scorpio facelift now comes in five different colour options: New premium Pearl White (S11), Diamond White (except S11), Napoli Black, D Sat Silver and Molten Red.
At the side, Mahindra has not disturbed the design language of the Scorpio but has added new alloy wheels and new ORVMs. However, at the rear, the company has revised the design extensively. The tailgate has been redesigned and has traded the stylish black element for a chrome slat at the centre.
While the previous model features clear lens for the taillight, the facelifted Scorpio now gets red units. A revised rear bumper and a more prominent roof-mounted spoiler is also part of the facelift.
Inside the cabin, Mahindra has made some noteworthy changes, and now instead of the side facing jump seats, the new Scorpio facelift features a proper bench seat for the third row along with armrest.
The interiors of the Scorpio facelift now comes with matching faux leather upholstery and revised dashboard that looks a lot more modern now with a 6-inch touchscreen infotainment system with GPS navigation.
Mahindra has also added a host of new features such as reverse parking camera with dynamic assist, 1-touch lane change indicator, auto window roll-up, GPS navigation in 10 languages among others.
Engine Specifications & Gearbox
The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio facelift continues to draw power from the same tried and tested 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine, but the unit now comes in two states of tune: the existing 120bhp version and a tuned 140bhp version.
While the 120bhp unit churns out 280Nm of torque, the more powerful version produces 320Nm of torque. The base variant S3, on the other hand, receives the older m2DICR diesel engine that develops 75bhp. Gearbox duties are carried out by a 5-speed manual gearbox in the S3, S5, and S7 (120bhp) and a new 6-speed manual gearbox for the S7 variant (140bhp) and the S11.
The company also claims the new Scorpio has better NVH levels and the SUV now comes with new 6th generation Borg Warner Turbo Charger and 9.1 Bosch ABS.
The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio is now more powerful and well equipped to compete with the likes of Tata Safari Storme, Renault Duster & Captur, and the Hyundai Creta.
