Mahindra is working on a facelifted version of the Scorpio SUV, due for launch later this year. In a move that seems aimed at clearing stocks of one of India’s best selling SUVs, the Scorpio, Mahindra has put a Special Edition version of the SUV on sale, yet again. This is the third instance of Mahindra launching the Special Edition of the Scorpio, with the automaker promising that a limited run of 500 units each time around.
In terms of mechanicals, the Scorpio Special Edition doesn’t see any changes. The SUV features the tried and tested, 2.2 liter mHawk turbo diesel engine that is a smooth and refined operator. The turbo diesel engine outputs 120 Bhp of peak power and 290 Nm of peak torque. The gearbox is a 5 speed manual with Mahindra also offering a 6 speed automatic gearbox as an option. However, the Special Edition pack would be available only on the top end manual variant of the SUV.
Here is the gist of the various additions that Mahindra has made to the Scorpio through the Special Edition accessory pack:
- Chequered decals on the front bumper and front doors
- Chromed alloy wheels
- Leather wrapping for the gear knob, steering wheel and seats
- Roof mounted DVD player with a 9 inch screen
- Wood finish for center console
The facelifted version of the Scorpio is due shortly and the new version will come with revamped interiors and features. On the outside, the facelifted model of the SUV will feature a new design. With Mahindra launching the Special Edition of the Scorpio, the launch of the facelifted version seems imminent. Going forward, expect discounts on the outgoing model of the Scorpio now that the General Elections have almost come to an end. The Scorpio experienced a sales spurt in the run up to the General Elections.
