Previous-gen Mahindra Scorpio To Get A Reboot As Scorpio Classic On August 12

It’ll be refreshed with a slightly revised front fascia and new features such as LED DRLs and a larger touchscreen

  • New Scorpio Classic will get seven and nine-seater versions. 

  • Will be offered in two variants, S3+ and S11. 

  • Powered by a new 132PS 2.2-litre diesel engine paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. 

  • New alloys, LED DRLs, and a larger 9-inch touchscreen to be offered.

  • Should undercut outgoing Scorpio’s prices. 

You might already know that the Mahindra Scorpio N’s predecessor will be sold alongside the new generation SUV. Called the Scorpio Classic, the SUV will be unveiled with a minor refresh on August 12.  

It’ll slot below the Scorpio N in Mahindra’s lineup and will be offered in two trim levels – S3+ and S11. Each will be available in 7-seater and 9-seater layouts for a total of four variants. Prices should undercut the outgoing Scorpio’s Rs 13.54 lakh to Rs 18.66 lakh (ex-showroom) price range. 

What’s new in the Scorpio Classic? 

Spy sightings have revealed that the Scorpio Classic will get a revised front grille and bumper, new 5-spoke alloy wheels, side mouldings and reflector elements above the LED taillights. 

Apart from these changes, the Scorpio Classic is largely similar to the outgoing Scorpio. 

The interior of the Scorpio Classic is familiar, too, apart from the new twin-peaks Mahindra logo on the steering wheel that now gets a gloss black trim piece instead of silver. In addition, it’ll get a new 9-inch touchscreen (larger than the previous 7-inch unit) with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, cruise control, climate control and rear parking camera.  

Mahindra Scorpio Classic engine 

The new Scorpio Classic will get a single engine option – the new 2.2-litre diesel engine from the Thar and the base-spec Scorpio N in a 132PS state of tune. It’ll be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission on all variants; no automatic or four-wheel drive variant will be offered.

The Mahindra Scorpio Classic will be a lower-priced alternative to the Scorpio N. Alongside its newer generation sibling, the Classic will continue to offer a spacious and rugged body on frame alternative in a segment crowded with monocoque SUVs such as the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, Volkswagen Taigun and Tata Harrier.
