Mahindra Scorpio Facelift: Highlights
-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 new set of five-spoke alloy wheels
-At the rear, it gets a subtly redesigned license plate housing and bumper. The outgoing model's clear-lense tail lamps have been ditched for a red lense setup
-The interior continues to feature the same light and dark theme. Sadly, Mahindra has retained the existing 6-inch touchscreen unit with the Scorpio facelift, despite the XUV500, KUV100 and the TUV300 featuring a bigger 7-inch unit. The XUV500’s unit also comes with Android Auto support. However, now, rear parking camera support is available with the touchscreen unit
-There’s a new faux leather upholstery on offer
-The updated Scorpio is powered by the 140PS version of the 2.2-litre mHawk, which also powers the XUV500. There’s a decent 20PS power boost, while the overall torque sees a healthy 40Nm boost (10Nm less than the XUV500’s). The 140PS 2.2-litre mHawk is mated to a 6-speed manual same as the XUV500
-The lower variants get the same 120PS version of the 2.2-litre mHawk, while the base trim gets the 2.5-litre m2DICR engine as before
-It will continue to feature the Mahindra Micro-Hybrid tech as before
-The updated Scorpio comes in six variants: S3, S5, S7 (two variants) and S11 (two variants)
