About Scorpio Specs and Features

Mahindra Scorpio price starts at Rs.10.00 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi) and the top end variant Mahindra Scorpio S11 4WD is priced at Rs. 16.44 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi). This is where Mahindra has played its Joker. In essence, the updated SUV can be had with two diesel engines – the 2.5-litre m2DICR and the 2.2-litre mHAWK. The former unit is reserved only for the entry-level variant and produces 75PS/200Nm. Yes, that’s not impressive at all. However, the smaller engine is available in two states of tune – 120PS/280Nm and 140PS/320Nm. The higher tune comes with a new 6-speed manual transmission, while other units continue to be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission. The micro hybrid technology and the low-range 4×4 system continue to be the Scorpio’s standout features. It still doesn’t get an automatic transmission. However, Mahindra is expected to equip the Scorpio with the torque converter from the XUV500. Mahindra hasn’t officially revealed the mileage figures of the updated Scorpio. Are they worse than before? Well, only a comprehensive road test can answer that question.

Editor’s View of Mahindra Scorpio

  • Upside

    Styling, space, equipment, price, engine
  • Downside

    Ergonomics, weight, steering response
  • Our Verdict

    The new Scorpio isn’t a mere a facelift but almost a new generation vehicle with a new chassis, almost all new body panels and much-improved ride and handling. It looks good too and can seat seven. With an aggressive price tag, it makes a good case for itself
