Mahindra is working on the all-new Scorpio and the car has been spotted on the Indian roads already. The heavily camouflaged model does not reveal much about the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio but it sure looks longer than the current version of the Scorpio. The all-new Scorpio will be launched in early 2020 and the official unveiling of the car is expected to happen at the 2020 Auto Expo.
While the real shape of the car remains under the wrap, there are a few speculative renderings of the car that shows what the upcoming Scorpio may look like. Here is a rendering image by NM tunes shows what the car may look like when it is launched in the market. The all-new Scorpio will get an all-new face but it will maintain the body-on-ladder frame set-up, which ensures that it remains a rugged and capable off-roader. The video shows that the rendering image has been made by tweaking the body of the current Mahindra Scorpio.
At the front, it gets a modern face with a new grille, new headlamps and new DRLs. The bumper also looks very aggressive and gets foglamp embedded to it. The LED fog lamps are positioned in a very aggressive way. The all-new Scorpio will also be longer, which will make it a perfect rival of the cars like Tata Harrier. On the inside, the Scorpio will get a number of changes that will make it modern and perfect for the new-age customers who want a feature-loaded vehicle.
The iconic Scorpio has been around for a long time now and the boxy design of the Scorpio makes sure that it looks brawny and muscular on the roads. The all-new Scorpio will carry forward the design but only in a completely different way.
The all-new Scorpio will meet the upcoming BNVSAP safety rules when it is launched in the market. It will also get an all-new engine, which will meet the new BS6 emission norms. Mahindra’s vehicle line-up consists majorly of the SUVs and people do like to have a diesel engine on their SUVs. Mahindra has already announced that they will continue to offer the diesel engine options in the Indian market even after the implementation of the BS6 norms. Currently, Mahindra is working on an all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine option that will power the next-generation Mahindra SUVs, including the Scorpio.
The 2.0-litre diesel engine powering the Mahindra Scorpio is likely to generate a maximum power of 160 Bhp and peak torque of 320 Nm. Mahindra is also expected to offer a 6-speed manual transmission as a standard option while an automatic transmission is also expected. The 4X4 feature with a low-ratio transfer case will be optional with the all-new car just like the current version.
