The long-awaited Mahindra Scorpio facelift is finally set to be launched in India this month, on November 14, 2017. Mahindra has been testing the new Scorpio for a while now and we've been telling you that the launch was planned for later this year. The Mahindra Scorpio was a true game changer for the home-grown utility vehicle manufacturer because it came at a time when there were hardly any options in the mid-size SUV space. But with modern offerings like the Renault Duster and now the Captur, Hyundai Creta and even the rise of the subcompact SUVs, the Scorpio sales have been going down, and a facelift is something that might put some life back into those numbers.

While we've seen the Scorpio being tested on a number of occasions, there are a few minor changes that the facelift is about to receive. To begin with, the front grille design is new with seven slats and we can't see any chrome bits there, which does away with an artificial look. There are some tweaks made to the front bumper too and the airdam appears to be wider before. Now, the side of the car more or less remains the same, apart from some bodycladding and a new alloy wheel design. There's likely to be some tweaks at the rear and we'll know more at the launch of the car.

Powertrain options will remain unchanged as the Mahindra Scorpio Facelift will continue to feature the tried and tested 2.2-litre mhawk diesel engine but there'll be more power on offer. Our sources say, that there'll be 20 bhp more on offer which takes the total to 140 bhp, while the torque figure will remain unchanged.

We don't expect the mild hybrid variant to be part of the line-up because of the heavy taxation on the technology post the introduction of GST. Currently available in 8 variants in total, the price starts from ₹ 9.9 lakh to ₹ 15.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). We wait to find out what Mahindra prices the facelift at.
