The launch of the new Scorpio Classic SUV is part of the company’s plan to maintain the old generation Scorpio fan base by continuing to deliver it in a new form following the launch of the new Scorpio-N, which is a very new car overall. .

Mahindra introduced the new Scorpio Classic SUV, which is expected to be less expensive than the current model of Scorpio-N, which is sold between Rs. 11.99 lakhs and Rs. 23.90 lakh (ex-showroom).

The new variant of the Scorpio is the company’s effort to retain the followers of the previous generation Scorpio, which was presented with a slightly modified exterior appearance. The 2022 Scorpio Classic comes as a slightly updated version of the previous generation Scorpio.

This release is part of the company’s plan to maintain the old generation Scorpio fan base by continuing to deliver it in a new form following the release of the new Scorpio-N, which is a very new car overall. In order to expand the customer base of the Scorpio brand, both cars will continue to be sold simultaneously.

A new front grille with a black and chrome finish will be added to the new Scorpio Classic as part of the exterior upgrades. The new fake skid plate and the application of Mahindra’s new “Twin Peaks” emblem will be the only other modifications besides this. The model will ride on 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels on taller versions, though the base form will still retain the steel rims.

A larger touchscreen infotainment system is expected to be installed inside the car, bringing a touch of modernity and benefiting from the use of fewer buttons and knobs for a cleaner look. It should be noted, however, that the cheapest model of the Scorpio Classic might not come with an infotainment system.

Another significant upgrade to the Scorpio Classic is the installation of a completely new suspension system, which should improve the vehicle’s handling and improve overall driving dynamics.

At the heart of the new Scorpio is a 2.2-litre mHawk 4-cylinder engine with Common Rail direct injection technology. This motor has been rated to deliver 97 kW of power at 3,750 rpm and 300 Nm of peak torque at 1,600-2,800 rpm. The engine delivers power to the rear wheel through a 6-speed manual transmission. However, the car misses the option of an automatic gearbox.

The company has not yet published the official price of the new SUV. However, it will certainly reduce the cost of the Scorpio-N. It is likely to be placed in the range of Rs 10 lakh to Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom). At this price, it will compete with other models like the Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
