Mahindra is all set to launch the mid-life update of the Scorpio on November 14, 2017. The facelift of the second-generation Mahindra Scorpio is right on time as the outgoing version was launched in September 2014, just over 3 years ago. Like before, the updated Scorpio will largely go against the Tata Safari Storme and its prices are expected to remain more less the same.
In terms of appearance, the updated Mahindra Scorpio is expected to sport a revised nose section with a new grille design – more inline with Mahindra’s latest design language. Also, the bumpers will be mildly tweaked, and the tail lamps are expected to feature a new LED visual pattern. On the inside, Mahindra is sure to equip the updated Scorpio with a new infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen and Android Auto support. Cabin materials and upholstery might be updated as well.
While Mahindra discontinued the automatic variants of the Scorpio a few months back, they are expected to make a comeback with the facelift – with the transmission speculated to be a new 6-speed torque converter unit. Also, thanks to GST, Mahindra might axe the Micro Hybrid variants of the Scorpio.
Expect the prices of the facelifted Mahindra Scorpio to be more or less the same as the current model.
Mahindra Scorpio facelift: Highlights
