Mahindra Scorpio Classic SUV base model in a walkaround video

Mahindra announced that they will not be discontinuing Scorpio after the launch of Scorpio N. It would continue to be alongside Scorpio N and was rebadged as Scorpio Classic. Mahindra has been testing the Scorpio Classic for some time and now the SUV has started reaching dealerships. The manufacturer is yet to announce the price and variants of Scorpio Classic but it is clear that, it will be priced below the new Scorpio N. Here we have a video where the vlogger shows what all does the base variant of Mahindra Scorpio Classic offers.

The video has been uploaded by Yash9w on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks about the exterior and interior of the Scorpio Classic and shows how different it is from the top-end model. Mahindra will be offering Scorpio Classic in two variants. There will be a base S variant and a top-end S11 variant. The base S variant looks very basic on the outside. There are no chrome elements or any other premium features.

The front grille on the SUV has been redesigned but unlike the S11 variant, it does not get chrome garnishes on the vertical slats. The headlamps do not have any LED DRLs and the lights are halogen instead of projectors. The bumpers and claddings on the base variant of Scorpio Classic are not body coloured and that looks extremely odd on the car. There are no fog lamps on the bumper as well. The new Mahindra logo is placed on the front grille. Some of the black panels are finished in gloss while the others do not. Coming to the side profile, the Scorpio Classic gets 17 inch steel rims with no wheel caps. There is a turn indicator placed on the fenders. Even the top-end variant gets turn indicators on the fender only.

The ORVMs are large and are finished in gloss black finish. The door handles are not body coloured and looks cheap on the car. Mahindra does not even offer a roof rail with the S variant. Coming to the rear, the car gets Scorpio Classic badge on the tail gate and just like at the front, rear bumper is also all black. There are no silver skid plates available on the bumper. The tail lamps on Scorpio Classic have been revised. They now gets pillar lamps which were not available in the regular Scorpio.

Just like the exterior, interior on the base variant Scorpio Classic is very basic. The cabin has no features at all. The steering wheel does not have any controls mounted on it. The instrument cluster is not the same as in the S11 model. There is no infotainment system from factory and the seats are all fabric as well. The SUV gets manual AC controls and the power window controls are on the centre console. The gear lever is different from the regular Scorpio and the vlogger can be heard saying in the video that the engine feels a lot more refined. Mahindra will be officially launching Scorpio Classic on 12 August.
