New Mahindra Scorpio India 2015
Offical mentioned that the only parts retained from the previous Scorpio were the doors and the roof. Look at the end result here, though, and you will realise that apart from the all-new face, everything else looks very similar to the outgoing model. That’s because every other exterior element has only been tweaked and is not necessarily an all-new design.The face is now more aggressive than the Scorpio we’ve been used to so far. The headlamps go well with the grille, are edgy, and feature projector lighting and parking lamps in the form of LED eyebrows that add to the macho character.
Larger 17-inch wheels (16-inch in the previous model) look good but are more car like than SUV. The wheels however fill up the arches well.
The clear lens tail lamps are new and feature bright LED lighting but the chrome insides look aftermarket especially during the day.
The steering wheel and mounted controls have been borrowed from the XUV500. The light blue backlit theme is soothing and the design overall is smart and pleasing.
The engines are similar to the outgoing model’s and receive no upgrades too. The Scorpio will be offered in six variants, namely – S2, S4, S6, S6+, S8.
Turbo lag is evident but once past the 2,000rpm mark, power delivery is strong and linear. The engine produces a healthy 120PS at 4,000rpm while max torque is an impressive 280Nm produced between 1,800rpm and 2,800rpm.
