2022 Mahindra Scorpio: 5 Things To Know About The Upcoming SUV

The next-gen Scorpio is expected to launch in 2022 and will be based on a body-on-frame platform


Mahindra’s next big launch in India will be the new-gen 2022 Scorpio. With plenty of test mules roving around the country, we have a fair idea of what to expect from the upcoming SUV. And if these spy shots are anything to go by, Mahindra is clearly taking a more premium approach, just like the XUV700 and Thar

So without further ado, here are five thing you need to know about the Scorpio:

Exterior Design


Though the Scorpio has grown a size larger, it still looks familiar, all thanks to the identical silhouette. That said, Mahindra will be sprucing up the premium factor with new dual-barrel headlights (probably LEDs), new alloy wheels, and LED tail lamps. A closer look at the test mule also revealed dynamic turn indicators a la the XUV700. 

Interior Design


The interior of the Scorpio is more upmarket and premium than ever. The layout seems quite straightforward with all controls placed logically. Then there’s the black-choclate theme that adds to the ambience. Mahindra will also be offering the Scorpio with captain and bench seats for middle row occupants.

… on offer include a touchscreen infotainment system (probably with XUV700-like Alexa connectivity), Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual-zone climate control, single-pane sunroof, cruise control, and a Sony sound system with roof-mounted speakers. 

Passenger safety should be taken care of by multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, and electronic stability control. 

Powertrain Options

The XUV700’s 200PS 2-litre turbo-petrol and 185PS 2.2-litre diesel engines will make its presence felt in the Scorpio, albeit in a detuned state. A 6-speed manual and optional 6-speed torque converter will be the transmission choices on offer. As standard, the Scorpio will be rear-wheel drive, though select variants will come with four-wheel drive with a low-range gearbox and off-road modes.

Expected Pricing And Rivals


At an expected starting price of around Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom), the new Scorpio will lock horns with compact SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, VW Taigun, Tata Harrier, and MG Hector.
