SUVs are currently all the rage in the country, and one of the most popular models is the Mahindra Scorpio-N. This full-size ladder-on-frame SUV from the country’s largest SUV manufacturer has taken the hearts of enthusiasts by storm, and people can’t get enough of it. The car has also gained significant fame on social media, with many individuals using it to gain a larger following. Some owners showcase its macho road presence, while others highlight its off-road capabilities. Recently, a few videos featuring a white Scorpio-N have gone viral on the internet, showcasing the SUV climbing stairs, which is a rare sight.
The videos have been shared on YouTube Shorts. In the first video, the white Scorpio-N can be seen ascending a set of stairs in front of closed shops, and it later reverses off the stairs. Similarly, the second video also shows the same Scorpio-N climbing stairs, but this time the video was recorded at night, and the location of the stairs is different.
These videos demonstrate that the new Mahindra Scorpio-N is a highly capable SUV that can easily tackle significant obstacles on the road. However, it should be noted that performing such acts can potentially damage the vehicle’s suspension, so it is not advisable to attempt them. Additionally, it is important to emphasize that these stunts were performed in public places, which is also something that should be avoided. Although the places seen in the videos appear isolated, engaging in such acts should be discouraged.
Regarding the Scorpio-N itself, the SUV offers two powertrain options. The first is a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that delivers a maximum power output of 198bhp and 380Nm of torque. The second option is a 2.2-litre diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 173bhp and 400Nm of torque. Both engines are available with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, the SUV is equipped with a 4WD system known as Mahindra’s 4Xplor system.
In other Scorpio-N news, the company recently raised the price of the entire range by Rs. 51,299. Following this price hike, the base variant of the Scorpio-N now starts at Rs. 13.06 lakh, while the top-spec variant reaches Rs. 24.51 lakh across all cities in India. This is not the first time the company has increased the price of the Scorpio-N. The initial hike occurred in January of this year, when the price of the SUV was raised by up to Rs. 1 lakh.
The Z2 and Z4 variants have seen a price increase of Rs. 75,000 since their debut. Additionally, Mahindra raised the price of the five new variants recently introduced at that time. Furthermore, the cost of the Z6 diesel models has been increased by up to Rs. 65,000, while the petrol Z8 and Z8L models saw a price increase of up to Rs. 65,000 as well. Among the diesel variants, the Z8L manual with 4WD experienced the highest price increase of Rs. 1.01 lakh, whereas the Z8L automatic models had the lowest price increase of Rs. 15,000. This initial price hike marked the end of the introductory prices for the Scorpio-N.
