The Mahindra Scorpio is one of the most popular SUVs on Indian roads, selling an average of close to 4,000 vehicles every month. And while the Scorpio on its own has tremendous road presence, the increasing number of them on the road makes it difficult to stand out.

That’s when customization comes in. Mahindra itself has a division that customizes Scorpios for a price, and there are other car modifiers who can carry out similar jobs to make your Scorpio stand out among others.

Here are five Scorpios that have been modified to different degrees, styles and tastes. Tell us which of them is the best looking.

Scorpio Xtreme


The Mahindra Scorpio Xtreme is a job that has been carried out by Mahindra Customization on the Scorpio VLX 4WD. The vehicle has been converted to a 4-door, short-chassis pickup, with a load bay. It has an external roll cage fitted to it, along with customized luggage racks, jerry can holder and bicycle rack. It also gets a sunroof and auxillary lamps.

This vehicle is ideal for enthusiasts who are avid outdoor adventurers as well, as it can carry camping gear, cycles and tents, and with its 4×4 system, reach places where normal vehicles wouldn’t go. Of course, it’s expensive as well. The Scorpio Extreme costs Rs. 5.5 lakh over and above the cost of a normal Scorpio VLX 4WD, putting it in the range of about Rs. 18 lakh overall!

Scorpio Lifestyle


The Scorpio Lifestyle is based on the Mahindra Scorpio Getaway pickup. The Getaway comes in both 4×4 and 4×2 models, and these modifications can be carried out on either of them. The Getaway Lifestyle features a motorized tonneau cover over its load bay, a roll cage, and customized cladding. It also gets a plethora of auxillary lamps, a sunroof, reverse camera and parking sensors.

The Lifestyle is an ideal choice again for those who love outdoor activities and need to carry plenty of equipment. In the city, the sheer size and looks of the Lifestyle are enough to turn quite a few heads. The interiors are finished in leather. The Lifestyle will cost about Rs. 4 lakh plus the cost of a Getaway, giving it an overall price of about Rs. 13 lakh.

Scorpio Platoon



The Mahindra Scorpio Platoon is similar to the Scorpio Xtreme, but to a lesser degree. The way it has been modified may not be to everyone’s taste. The headlamps have been replaced by a set of three projector lamps, it gets a winch and plenty of plastic cladding. This too is a four-door body style, with a grilled-tailgate for the load bay area. The Scorpio Platoon can be built on any existing Mahindra Scorpio model. It costs about Rs. 3 lakh over the cost of a Scorpio.

Body kit for Scorpio

If you aren’t a fan of these extreme modifications and just want a little bit of customization, you could simply opt for a body kit for the Scorpio, along with redone interiors. The bodykit includes a pair of auxillary lamps, built-in bulbar on the bumper, two-tone paint job, and cladding for the tail-lamps. Just these modifications alone will cost under Rs. 50,000, while interior leather upholstery will cost another Rs. 30,000. This gives the Scorpio some degree of individuality without having to break the bank. It can be applied to any W-model Scorpio (post 2006 models).

Kishan Lohiya’s Scorpio



If you want to do something completely out of this world, then take inspiration from Kishan Lohiya’s Scorpio. This Hyderabad-based gentleman was among the early customers of a Scorpio to completely customize his vehicle, very radically. The biggest standout were the 36-inch Super Swamper tyres on 16-inch wheels for which he had to extend the axles and build new fenders. He also chopped the rear portion of the body to make it a pick-up and added a snorkel and auxillary lamps. The results are stunning. The biggest expense for such a modification are the tyres, which cost about Rs. 25,000 each!
