Additional variant details of the upcoming, 2015 Mahindra Scorpio SUV Facelift have been revealed. While it was known that the Scorpio Facelift would be sold in five variants, S2, S4, S6, S8 and S10, details of the various features that these variants will pack in are now available.
All variants of the Scorpio Facelift get the comprehensive makeover consisting of new front and rear end styling bits. They also hop on to a new hydroformed chassis that is said to be lighter and more rigid than before. On the inside, the new instrumentation cluster and dashboard are the other commonalities in the facelifted models.
The S2 variant, which serves as the base version of the Facelifted Scorpio, will get a 2.5 liter M2DiCR turbo diesel (75 Bhp-220 Nm) engine. The S2 variant will replace the EX variant of the pre-facelift SUV, and will be aimed at rural and semi-urban markets where the Scorpio’s image is a bigger seller than the engine it packs in. In the facelifted Scorpio, the S2 variant gets the following key features,
Power steering, air conditioning, 15 inch alloy wheels, manual wing mirrors, side fender bezel, engine immobilizer, central locking, power windows, micro hybrid technology (start-stop system) and non-body coloured bumpers, wing mirrors and door handles.
The S4 variant adds the following features,
Tilt steering, fabric upholstery, 17 inch wheels, all-new SMT320 manual gearbox and an optional 4X4 mechanism.
The S6 variant adds,
Remote central locking, rear wiper and defogger, sliding function for middle row, arm rest and swivel interior lamps, body coloured wing mirrors, bumpers and door handles, 2-DIN stereo, silver outline in fender bezel, body coloured spoiler, ski racks and body coloured cladding.
The S6 Plus variant adds,
ABS+EBD and Twin Airbags
The S8 variant adds,
Electric wing mirrors, 17 inch alloy wheels, silver skid plate and number plate applique, voice assist, projector headlamps, speed alert, parking sensors, front fog lamps and one touch, driver power window operation.
The S10 variant adds,
Projector headlamps with static bending technology, micro hybrid technology, optional 4X4 mechanism, touchscreen infotainment module with GPS, automatic climate control, driver seat height adjustment, LED highlights for headlamps, side blackout tapes, chrome package.
Mahindra has also made other changes to the Scorpio that include revisions to the suspension and increased track widths at the front and rear. Gauging from the feature set on the S2 variant, a sharp entry price tag is likely for the SUV, which will fly the Scorpio flag until 2016, when the next-generation model will arrive. The SUV will be launched on the 25th September.
