Mahindra Scorpio Latest Updates
The BS6-compliant Mahindra Scorpio has been spotted testing in India. The current Scorpio could get a BS6 upgrade before its successor arrives in the country. It could be launched before the March 31 deadline.
The Scorpio is Mahindra’s popular midsize SUV which utilises a rugged body-on-frame platform. It’s priced from Rs 10.20 lakh to Rs 16.83 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Mahindra Scorpio comes with two engine options: a 75PS 2.5-litre diesel and a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel in two states of tune: 120PS/280Nm and 140PS/320Nm. While the 2.5-litre unit and the 120PS 2.2-litre come with a 5-speed manual transmission, the top-spec model comes with a 6-speed manual. Power is channeled to the rear wheels while the 140PS model comes with all-wheel-drive.
Exterior features in the Scorpio include dual-barrel projector headlamps, 17-inch alloy wheels and LED tail lamps. Inside, it comes with a touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, steering-mounted audio control, cruise control, a multi-info display, and keyless entry. Safety features include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.
The Mahindra Scorpio is available in five variants: S3, S5, S7, S9, and S11. It’s offered in four colour options: silver, red, black and white.
The Mahindra Scorpio doesn’t have any direct rivals in India. In terms of pricing, the Scorpio’s rivals include the Hyundai Creta 2020, Kia Seltos and the MG Hector.
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 4x4 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.
This time around, Mahindra has simplified the variant list. Only six remain now - S3, S5, S7, S7 (140PS), S11, S11 4x4. Don’t ask us what happened to the S9. Probably the fear of a smaller suffix after the ‘S’ would have created the wrong impression with those who knew that its predecessor had an S10 variant. The S3 is the only variant that comes with m2DICR engine and should be ignored. Less than a hundred horses to power a 2.5-tonne SUV is just cruel. Moreover, with its black bumpers, black cladding and exposed steel wheels, it screams out that you are a cheapskate. The 120PS/280Nm mHAWK powerplant is available in the S5 and the S7 variants. However, the latter is also available with the 140PS/320Nm tune. It goes without saying that the range-topper, the S11, comes with the most powerful engine.
Going by the looks of the refreshed Scorpio, it seems like Mahindra hasn’t put enough effort into giving it a fresher fascia. Sure, there are a few cosmetic updates but one really needs to be a car geek to spot them. The seven-slot front grille seems like it has been taken off of a Jeep Compass! The redesigned front bumper houses bigger fog lamps with chrome surrounds and is accompanied by a redesigned skid plate too. On the side, the ORVMs get integrated turn indicators and the refreshed Scorpio also gets newly designed 17-inch alloy wheels. The design of the air extractors for third row windows have been tweaked as well. The plastic cladding around the rear number plate has been ditched and the tail lamps now get a red-lens treatment. All in all, we won’t blame you for mistaking the updated Scorpio for its predecessor.
The Scorpio’s interior was never high on practicality or quality. With the facelift, Mahindra has tried to add a dash of both. The seven-seater’s all-fabric upholstery has been replaced by faux-leather for the seats, steering wheel and the gear lever. The darker dual-tone theme, however, seems a bit dull. On the practicality front, Mahindra has bolted a sunglasses holder on the roof and added bigger cubbyholes for your knick-knacks, including a holder for your smartphone. The feature-list has been updated with a reverse camera (featuring dynamic assist), one-touch lane change indicators and auto window roll-up. Basic safety features like ABS and dual airbags are still missing in the base variant, which is a bit of a letdown when you consider its price.
Mahindra Scorpio Competitors
Tata Safari Storme : Tata’s smug mobile has started to feel dated. But there is no getting away from the fact that it is still just as imposing and just as capable off-road as ever. The 4x4 variant is slightly more affordable than the Scorpio’s. That said, the Scorpio is a more rounded product.
Honda BR-V: Honda's offering in the segment is essentially a jacked up Mobilio with some mechanical changes to compensate for the raised stance. It is the only crossover here which can seat seven people.
Nissan Terrano : : The Duster's better-looking cousin (yes, looks are subjective), the Terrano suffers from being too overpriced for its own good. It does get a diesel AMT variant, which is a good option for those looking for a convenient urban SUV.
Renault Duster : The car that started it all, the Renault Duster is the only modern crossover in the segment to feature an AWD system. Its butch design, adequate space, CVT transmission (petrol), AMT (diesel) and all-weather ability make it score a lot of brownie points in the segment. However, its interior quality and limited service network make it less appealing.
Hyundai Creta : There’s not much wrong with the Creta. It’s spacious, is built well inside out and drives well too. It’s got an appeal very few of its competitors can match.

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

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Scorpio
- S5: It is in this variant that the Scorpio starts to make more sense. The more powerful engine, bigger wheels and more kit on-board sum up to a more meaningful package. The added safety, which is rapidly becoming a key area of attention is also addressed with two airbags and ABS. This variant is well suited for anyone who has always loved the big, brawny looks of the Scorpio, but is on a tight budget. Sure, it isn’t as feature loaded as it could be, but it does have almost all the basic features expected from a car of this size and price. S7: The S7 variant enhances the comfort and safety aspect, with a rear defogger, rear wiper with washer, anti-theft alert and the Intellipark technology which delivers visual and audio notifications while reverse parking into a slot. This variant is best suited for someone looking for an 8-seat layout, which is unavailable in the S3 and S5 variants. Moreover, at this price, the Scorpio comes with a handsome features package and comes with body-coloured panels. Moreover, the added ski rack on top of the roof comes in more than handy to transport oversized goods. S11: This S11 variant is the most feature-loaded of the lot. Apart from the additional seating configuration options, the S11 gets a 6.0-inch infotainment display, tyre pressure monitoring system, auto headlamps and wipers and a more premium upholstery inside. But, even at this price, the Scorpio misses out on features like electrically foldable ORVMs, no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay compatibility, sunroof, automatic transmission and more airbags. If you can do without these misses, but can’t with what the S11 gets over the S7, go for it. However, the price hike is a bit too steep and we’d recommend you to go for the S7 (140PS) and get whatever you need extra from an aftermarket shop. It’ll be more affordable that way.

- Scorpio is a more rugged suv of the two. it has a body on frame chasis and is very reliable off the road scenes. It is a rear wheel driven car. XUV 500 on the other hand is an urban suv and is has a monocoque chasis. it is also front wheel driven car and is more premium and better in terms of ergonomics, comfort and safety. choice is for you to make between ruggedness and comfort.
- Xuv 500 offers you a 6 speed manual transmission in diesel and a 6 speed automatic transmission in both petrol and diesel whereas Scorpio only has a 6 speed manual transmission in diesel only.

I have been using scorpio s10 4wd since 2017nov, and the first thing i've noticed in this beast that door's noise keeps you irritate,it won't going to stop not even in agency, and you will have to use to it, and second thing I've noticed that i got a milage of 7 km per litre in hills and 12 - 13 km per litre in long drive, seats are like you will have to compromise with them, and no storage in this suv, like there are only 2 bottle space at rear doors and only 1 bottle space in front on gear console, there are no storage in front doors, can't even place your smart phone or wallet anywhere properly, and this suv comes with the cheapest quality 17inches MRF tyres that is going to run only 20,000kms, but instead on these cons this suvs performance is really good, and the 4wd feature is so amazing, trust me if you love off-roading then this suv will makes you fall in love with this beast...but mahindra need to work alot on the features,storage and comfort, at last i will just say that instead of so much cons i still love this beast.
scorpio has great road presence and it feels like king of the road while driving . I got captain seat version but the space was always issue.. if you have more than two bahas it has be 4 seater only and if we were 5 then no luggage space.. one more area it was bot so good was driving ergonomics got my elbow hurt many times by door.. spending 15 lacs on it was bot a great decision but got very good resale value.so no regret..miss that king feeling.
It is a wonderful car to drive but lacks on comfort and is a bit too scary to drive on corners and it also lacks high end punch. In city driving the performance is awesome. Ergonomics is not the best. Space is plentiful. The suspension is very bad and is very jumpy even though an aftermarket suspension will fix the problem they are expensive. Overall quality is not the best even though it is something you will not notice given the USA of the car
hoi this is very good nice experience

Budget car, comfortable for family .It is my father choice.I also luv this car
Perfect suv. When we accelerate, we know the power delivery in 4th gear perfectly. Awesome engine response.
