With the new crash test norms, which will be implemented in the Indian market soon, we can expect a huge change in the design of many current models that will be launched in an all-new avatar. Mahindra Scorpio is one such vehicle that will be launched in the Indian market in an all-new avatar next year. Here is a rendering video by SRK Designs of what it looks like the next-generation Scorpio.
The all-new Scorpio will replace the current version of the car from the markets and it is expected to be much different in terms of looks from the present day model. Mahindra will keep the brawny design of the Scorpio intact in the next-generation model too. The rendering image shows a much longer Mahindra Scorpio with a large third-row window. The design of the body gets deeper creases that ensure a muscular look of the vehicle. The rendering image also shows the flared wheel arches of the all-new SUV.
Mahindra is expected to move to the all-new design language with the upcoming generation of vehicles. The iconic products like the Scorpio and the Thar will go through the changes and will come in an all-new avatar. All the upcoming Mahindra vehicles are likely to get a new front-end design with a new grille that will make them look very different from the current generation vehicles.
We can expect Mahindra to keep the current design of the vertically slated grille but the overall design of the grille can be upgraded. Also, the front headlamps are likely to become an extended part of the front grille in the next-generation Mahindra Scorpio. It is also expected to get bright LED positioning lamps at the front. Even the rear lamps are expected to get an update and look much different with extensive use of LEDs. Overall, the all-new Mahindra Scorpio will be much different and modern looking SUV when compared to the current version.
With the upcoming BS-VI emission norms in the Indian market, Mahindra will use an all-new in the Scorpio too. The engine is currently under development and is expected to power the next-generation Mahindra and next-generation Mahindra XUV300 too. However, the power output in all the three SUVs will be different from each other. Mahindra has already expressed that they will continue to offer the diesel engine options in the next-generation models even after the BS-VI updates. The all-new engine powering the next-generation Scorpio is likely to be a 2.0-litre diesel engine unit that generates a maximum power of 160 Bhp and peak torque of around 320 Nm. It is expected to get automatic and manual transmission as an option. The next-generation Mahindra Scorpio will continue to offer the 4X4 drive system that makes it a capable off-road vehicle too.
