Mahindra Scorpio Latest Updates
The Mahindra’s Scorpio will soon see a price hike as the manufacturer will implement various safety features to make the SUV compliant with AIS 145 safety norms.
2020 Mahindra Scorpio was spotted in the outskirts of Coimbatore while being load tested. The spied SUV looks larger than the current model and is most likely going to be based on the same platform that underpins the upcoming Thar SUV. A new 2.0-litre BS6-compliant diesel engine will be used instead of the 2.2-litre mHawk and 2.5-litre m2DICR diesel engines. The new engine is expected to make more power and will be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. 4WD could be offered as an option along with an automatic transmission as well. A 2.0-litre petrol engine can also be expected post-April 2020 when the emission norms kick in.
Mahindra will debut the fourth generation Scorpio at the 2020 Auto Expo. Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster, Renault Captur and the Nissan Kicks are the main rivals and the SUV is expected to be priced at a slight premium over the current model (Rs 9.99 lakh to Rs 16.44 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi).

Mahindra Scorpio Highlights
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.
Exterior and Interior
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.
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.
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 Scorpio has its faults. It isn’t built with the best of materials and its body-roll in fast corners feels like its drunk on half a bottle of Absinthe. That said, if you want a car that can tackle the worst of terrains, carry seven on board in relative comfort with its robust suspension and has enough oomph to get you home on time, the Scorpio is absolutely formidable.
