Mahindra has been a leading manufacturer of SUV cars in the Indian market. The company is promoting the Scorpio-N as the ‘Bigdaddy’ of SUV cars. According to the information, Mahindra’s new Scorpio can be offered in a 2.2-litre diesel engine. This engine will generate 130 Bhp of power and will come mated to a manual transmission.
Some reports also claim that it will also be offered with a 2.0-litre m-stallion turbo-petrol engine that will be capable of producing 150bhp of power and 320Nm of peak torque.
Mahindra’s new Scorpio is being built on the ladder frame chassis. It is also being speculated that the new Scorpio could be front wheel drive (FWD). Accordingly, this will be Mahindra’s first SUV to be given a front wheel drive option. However, the company has not disclosed it officially.
The interior of the new Scorpio is completely different from the previous generation model. It now comes with a large landscape-oriented touchscreen infotainment system. Dual-zone climate control and controls for other electronics are provided on the center console. The instrument cluster has also been given a major update. It now gets a physical dial-based instrument cluster with colored MIDs.

Also, it is expected to offer wireless phone charging. It can be given a roof-mounted speaker like the Mahindra Thar and a large sunroof like the XUV700.
The Scorpio-N will be more premium and expensive than the current Scorpio. However, its price is going to be less than the company’s flagship SUV 700 SUV. The company can start booking a few days before the launch. Let us tell you that Mahindra Scorpio is a D-segment SUV. It was first launched in 2002. This is the company’s longest running model being sold in the Indian market for the last 20 years. During this time the company has made many changes in the design and features of the Scorpio.
