Mahindra Scorpio, which is well-known SUV and has been around for a long time in the Indian market recently got a new Television Commercial (TVC). The Mahindra Scorpio will soon get a full model change, which is expected to get launched in the Indian market next year. Currently, the Mahindra Scorpio remains one of the top choices when it comes to the SUV segment, especially in the Tier-II and Tier-III.
Keeping up with the trending tugs-of-war that are done by the enthusiasts to check the vehicle’s power, Mahindra’s new TVC includes the same. The new TVC shows the Mahindra Scorpio tied to two tractors and playing the tugs-of-war. The ad shows that the Mahindra Scorpio successfully pulls two tractors across the line, indicating that it is even more powerful than two tractors.
Nonetheless, the advertisement further highlights the features of the Scorpio and the strong and rugged build the vehicle. The Mahindra Scorpio in its latest form was launched last year in the Indian market. It is currently priced at Rs 9.97 lakh for the base variant, while the top-end S11 variant is priced at Rs 14.78 lakh. Mahindra did not change with the latest update. The only major change was the engine of the top-end variants.
Even though all the variants of the Scorpio are powered by the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. The S7 and the S11 variants of the SUV produce a higher power than the rest of the variants. The two variants produce a maximum power of 140 PS and peak torque of 320 Nm. The other variants produce a maximum power of 120 PS and peak torque of 280 Nm. The higher power is due to a new Borg Warner turbocharger. Also, the S7 and the S11 variants get the self-adjusting clutch with the six-speed transmission.
With the update, Mahindra also altered the grille of the vehicle. It gets a 7-slat grille with chrome bezels. The projector headlamps have been updated too and overall, the car looks quite intimidating on the roads.
The current-generation Mahindra Scorpio will be replaced with an all-new model sometime in the next year. The upcoming SUV has been spotted testing multiple times on the roads but it is not known how the car will look like exactly in the production form. The all-new Scorpio will also be much bigger than the current version and will offer a range new equipment and features.
The all-new Mahindra Scorpio will be powered by an all-new engine, which will also power the next-generation Mahindra Thar and the Mahindra XUV500. The next-generation Scorpio is expected to be more powerful than the current version and offer better off-roading capabilities too.
