Mahindra Scorpio is known to be a workhorse and it has been a hit for the manufacturer. As time passes, a car starts to lose its beauty because of normal wear and tear. Because of this, many people decide to sell the vehicle. However, it is not necessary that you would get a good value for the vehicle even if the engine is in perfect condition. So, some people decide to have a major overhaul done of the exterior and interior. Here, we have a Mahindra Scorpio that has been restored from the outside as well as inside.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by Autorounders and they are the ones who worked on the SUV. The Scorpio came to the shop for a full overhaul. As we can see in the video, the Scorpio is in rough shape after all these years of being in use.

The exterior of the SUV is restored back to its original state. The SUV is now finished in a nice premium shade of Pearl White. The interior is now finished in a beige and black theme.
The shop has used Nappa leather and wooden inserts for the steering wheel which does give a premium feel. The cost of the modification is not shared in the video.
Mahindra launching Scorpio N soon
Mahindra has revealed the new Scorpio N and they will be launching it on June 27th. The manufacturer has decided to retain the boxy and butch design language. The Scorpio N will go on sale alongside the current Scorpio. The Scorpio N will be a more premium and better-built product as compared to the current Scorpio.
The new SUV will be offered in two engine options. There will be 2.0-litre turbo petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel engine. Both the engines are shared with the Thar and the XUV700. The petrol engine is expected to be quite powerful just like the XUV700. It might happen that Mahindra ends up offering the same 200 PS tune that they offer on the XUV700. It will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
The diesel engine will be offered in two states of tune. The lower variants will get the Thars tune. So, it would produce 130 PS and 300 Nm. It will be offered only with a manual gearbox. The higher variants would produce 155 PS and 360 Nm which is the same tune offered on the XUV700’s MX trim. It would come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
Mahindra would still offer a 4×4 system with the Scorpio. It would be offered on the higher variants whereas the lower variants would be rear-wheel drive. There would also be drive modes that would be able to alter the amount of torque that is sent to the wheels.
