Mahindra has introduced a new variant of the Scorpio in the Indian market. The new S9 variant sits just below the top-spec S11 trim and comes with a host of new features and equipment, borrowed from the top-end model.
The new Mahindra Scorpio S9 variant is priced at Rs 13.99 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). The new variant will be available across all Mahindra dealerships around India, with immediate effect.
Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales and Marketing, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. stated, "Scorpio changed the landscape of the Indian Auto Industry & continues to be a dominant force in the SUV segment."
"The new Scorpio S9 offers a great feature package at an attractive price point making it a compelling buy for customers looking for a true-blue SUV while retaining Scorpio's core DNA of Power, Driving Thrill & Adventure."
The new S9 variant introduced in the lineup comes feature-packed. Some of the new features on the Mahindra Scorpio S9: static-bending projector headlamps, front fog lamps, LED guide lights, hydraulic-assisted bonnet, Intellipark and ORVMs with integrated turn indicators.
Moving to the interiors, the Mahindra Scorpio comes with additional equipment such as a new 5.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, GPS navigation in 10 languages, voice-assist system, fully automatic temperature control, along with audio and cruise control on the steering wheel.
The Mahindra Scorpio S9 variant, however, carries forward the same engine as on the other trims. This includes a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel mHawk engine producing 140bhp and 320Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission sending power to a four-wheel-drive system.
Safety features on the new Mahindra Scorpio S9 variant: dual-front airbags, ABS, Anti-theft warning, panic-brake indication and engine immobiliser. The SUV also comes with cushion suspension and anti-roll technologies.
