Mahindra launches updated Scorpio at Rs 9.97 lakh

New Mahindra Scorpio launched, starting at Rs 9.97 lakh

Indian SUV manufacturer, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, today launched a new avatar of the Scorpio.

Inside, the XUV500 facelift might receive minor updates, however the basic dashboard layout is expected to remain the same. The most significant improvement comes in the form of a more powerful engine.

Visually, the design of the 2017 Mahindra Scorpio largely remains unchanged, but, the SUV does come with a bunch of styling updates, mainly to the front and rear section. The high power engine is also available as an option in with the mid S7 variant which is also available in 120PS, 280Nm version along with the S3 and the S5 trims.

Commenting on the launch, Rajan Wadhera, President - Automotive Sector, M&M, said that the Scorpio has pushed the boundaries for Mahindra and created new benchmarks for others ever since its launch in 2002. To see the Scorpio become the pride of over 6 lakh customers is a matter of pride. "I firmly believe that the consumers will find the New All Powerful Scorpio a flawless companion for their thrilling and adventurous journeys", he added.

FedEx Corporation (FDX) Shares Bought by Williams Jones & Associates LLC
Parametric Portfolio Limited Liability Company stated it has 0.35% in Texas Instruments Incorporated (NASDAQ:TXN). The Company's divisions include FedEx Express, TNT Express, FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight and FedEx Services.

The updated Mahindra Scorpio is powered by the same tried and tested 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine, but the oil burner now comes in two states of tune - the existing 120 bhp version and a tuned 138 bhp version.

The variant line-up has been revised as well, and power and torque will now vary variant-wise. This engine is mated to a new six-speed manual transmission sourced from BorgWarner. A 6-speed automatic is optional. Mahindra now also offers faux skid plate for both front and rear bumper. Expect a claimed average mileage of around 17 kmpl.

The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio facelift is now well-equipped and more powerful. The stylish new radiator grille has been added to the rear front of the auto. Also, the bumpers are new and so are the fog lights. The taillamps have also been revised and instead of clear glass unit, the Scorpio now gets red units. The alloy wheels are also new.

The cabin in the higher-spec Scorpio variants now sports new faux leather upholstery, and the steering wheel and gear lever are also wrapped in the same. In addition, there is a roof mounted sunglass holder and mobile holder spot. Other than this, there's nothing new here, really. However, the 2018 Mahindra Scorpio facelift is a really minor nip and tuck job.
