Next-gen 2021 Mahindra Scorpio Interior Spied; To Get A Sunroof

From the looks of it, the new Scorpio could be a feature-loaded offering, making it a worthy alternative to the Seltos and Creta


  • New Scorpio is likely to be called the ScorpioN or Scorpio Sting.
  • It will come with push-button start, sunroof, and possibly connected car tech.
  • It will utilise the Thar’s 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines, albeit with more power.
  • Prices likely to start around Rs 13 lakh.

The Scorpio might be getting a bit too long on the tooth, but Mahindra will soon launch its successor, which has been under testing for a while now. Likely to be called the ScorpioN or Scorpio Sting, it could be sold alongside the existing model. Despite retaining the design elements, the upcoming model will be larger. Now, the latest spy shots have given us a glimpse of its interior and we’ve spotted a few important details. 

For starters, the new Scorpio’s interior, which is completely redesigned, employs a dual-tone black-chocolate brown colour scheme. It also gets what appears to be a few brushed silver finish highlights around the air-con vents to liven up the cabin. We also noticed an engine start-stop button, but unlike the 2021 XUV500, the upcoming Scorpio will make do with analogue dials, instead of a digital instrument display. 

The keen-eyed will also notice the sunroof, a first for the Scorpio. However, unlike the 2021 XUV500 or the Tata Safari, it’s a single-pane unit as opposed to a full-fledged panoramic sunroof. It could also get a larger touchscreen infotainment system with connected car tech, automatic climate control, a coloured multi-info display, cruise control, LED headlamps, and tail lamps. Safety should be covered by multiple airbags (a first for Scorpio), ABS with EBD, parking sensors with camera, and electronic stability control. 


The Scorpio will borrow the Thar’s new-generation 2.2-litre diesel and 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engines, albeit with more power. Like the Thar, the Scorpio could come with 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions. With this generation update, Mahindra may even reintroduce four-wheel drive to the Scorpio.


Like the current model, the new Scorpio will be the only body-on-frame SUV with a standard rear-wheel-drivetrain when it goes on sale possibly by this year-end. It will command a premium over the current model, priced from Rs 11.99 lakh. It will rival the Kia Seltos, Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, and Tata Safari.
