New Mahindra Scorpio Latest Updates

Mahindra and Mahindra has started working on the next-generation Mahindra Scorpio SUV. First introduced in 2002, India has already seen three generations of the popular Sports Utility Vehicle, and now the fourth one is on its way. The next-gen Mahindra Scorpio is expected to be introduced in 2020 and will possibly receive the highest amount of upgrades seen so far. The new-gen model will comply with both, the new stringent safety norms, as well as, the Bharat Stage VI (BS6) emission norms.

Several prototype models of the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio have already been spotted testing in India and is internally codenamed Z101. Judging by the test mules seen so far, the new-gen Scorpio will be a lot bigger in terms of size, and will possibly take a new design route as well. The new generation model appears to be dramatically different from the outgoing Scorpio. Expect to see a lower roofline and larger proportions on the SUV with an upright front. The hood scoop seems to have been given a miss. The slated Mahindra grille though will make an appearance on the all-new version. The test mule further reveals flared wheel arches and a slightly raked windshield.

The new generation Mahindra Scorpio will continue to be based on a ladder-on-frame chassis, albeit of more rigid and sturdier construction, in line with the new crash norms. It’s also expected to be lights and induce lesser body roll and better stability than its predecessors. The SUV is also expected to draw power from a 2.0-litre diesel engine that will bump the power output to 158 bhp, from the current 138 bhp on offer. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual transmission while an automatic will also be on offer along with All-Wheel Drive. The new generation Scorpio can also be expected with a petrol motor right from the start given the stringent emission norms of the future.

On the inside, the new Mahindra Scorpio is expected to get a complete overhaul. Expect improved material quality and fit and finish as well along with Pininfarina design elements. Expect a larger touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, multi-function steering wheel, more creature comforts and connectivity features over the current model. We also expect more safety features like – dual airbags, ABS with EBD, seatbelt reminder, rear parking sensors, high-speed warning and ISOFIX child seat all offered as standard fitment.

The all-new Mahindra Scorpio is also expected to move up the price ladder, locking horns against the Tata Harrier, Renault Captur, Nissan Kicks Hyundai Creta and the likes. The SUV is expected to make its debut in 2020 while the launch could be later the same year or in 2021.
