The car gets metal front & rear bumpers, LED light bar on the roof, high lift jack, an all weather tent if you decide to go into the wilderness & a winch in case you get stuck. Not only this, on the inside, the Tuff gets Heads up display and the seats have a water resistant cover on it.

Mahindra Scorpio


This Scorpio has been designed by Mahindra’s in house customization department. It gets a matt grey paint, a metal bumper & a reworked headlamp & grill which give it a menacing look. Though Mahindra did have a pick up version of the Scorpio, they still decided to chop off the roof from the back & give it a loading area.

The concept is based on a double cab Xenon pick up. It gets an aggressive front bumper with a brushed aluminium skid plate & a winch. There are auxiliary lamps both on the roof and the front bumper. There is a snorkel that improves water wading capabilities. It features a roll cage to improve structural rigidity. 20 inch rims with off-road tyres allow it to conquer any terrain.
