Mahindra Scorpio is one of the popular SUVs from Mahindra in Indian market. It has been present in the market for over a decade and when launched, it was a trend setter SUV in the market. It loved by many for its rugged and dominating looks on the road. Over the years, Mahindra made several changes on Scorpio to keep it fresh in the market. Mahindra is currently working on a bunch of new SUVs and next-gen Scorpio is one of them. It is expected to be launched in the market some time next year. The current generation is quite popular in modification circles and we have seen several examples in the past. Here we have a video where an owner has modified his Mahindra Scorpio into an SUV suitable for camping.
The video has been uploaded by AB Ventures on their YouTube channel. The owner starts this video by saying that, he has not made any modifications that would affect the chassis or structure of the vehicle. All these modifications were done by the owner himself. The video starts by showing a 14 litre water storage tank that is neatly tucked behind the tailgate padding. There is a tap from where they can take water and the cap to fill the water was placed on the top.
The main reason why they placed a water tank is because, they have created couple of cabinets at the rear after removing third row of seats. The cabinets include tents, jerry can, utensils, stove, gas cylinders and food. They will be cooking food at the rear of their SUV while they are on a road trip. This tap will provide water to cook food and clean utensils while they are on the move.
The top of the cabinet actually has a mat that can be turned into a bed. For this, the second row seats are folded and front row seats are slid to the front to expand the bed. The bed is 6×4 feet in dimension and it can easily accommodate 2 adults and a child in it. They also have installed two fans and ambient lights inside the cabin. Three auxiliary lamps are installed on the outside as well. They have also installed an inverter in the car for charging laptops and other electrical equipment.
Other unique feature on this Mahindra Scorpio is the hidden auxiliary lamp at the front. It is neatly tucked behind the front grille and only pops out when it is turned On. The stock wheels have been replaced with aftermarket alloy wheels from Momo brand and they have also installed aftermarket touchscreen infotainment screen. They have also reinforced the side steps and painted it black to give it a rugged look. All these modifications have been done without altering the existing or original wires in the car.
The work done on this Mahindra Scorpio looks very neat and that is what makes it special as well. Mahindra Scorpio is available with a 2.2 litre mHawk turbo diesel engine and is available with a manual gearbox. The next-gen Scorpio however will be available with both petrol and diesel engine options with both manual and automatic gearbox options.
