2017 Mahindra Scorpio Spotted Testing Again Ahead Of Launch


The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio was recently spotted testing in India ahead of its launch later this month. Slated to go on sale in India on November 14, 2017, the updated Scorpio comes with some styling updates along with a bunch of new features, while the mechanicals is expected to remain unchanged. Right now, there are no mid-size SUVs in the market that comes with a 7-seater layout, so upon launch, the 2017 Scorpio Facelift will rival the likes of the newly launched Renault Captur, the Duster, and the Hyundai Creta, all of which are 5-seater models.

Judging by the new spy images, the 2017 Mahindra Scorpio comes with a bunch of new cosmetic additions, but the biggest update is the new face, which now gets an all-new 7-slot grille. While for an instant you might think this looks similar to the Jeep Compass but the grille is actually similar to the Mahindra Imperio pick-up. The headlamps are largely similar to the outgoing model but the cluster design has been slightly tweaked. The bumper is the same but the foglamps have been redesigned and the SUV comes with a larger set of light. Also, earlier the panel for number plate housing was body colour but now you get black cladding instead.

From the sides, the new Scorpio doesn’t seem to come with many changes but you do get now alloy wheels and ORVMs. The rear, on the other hand, has been redesigned and now features a revised tailgate. The black design element has been removed and the instead of the clear glass taillamps you get red ones. There is a chrome insert at the centre with the Mahindra logo in the middle.

Powertrain options will remain unchanged as the Mahindra Scorpio Facelift will continue to feature the tried and tested 2.2-litre mhawk diesel engine but there’ll be more power on offer. Our sources say that there’ll be 20 bhp more on offer which takes the total to 140 bhp, while the torque figure will remain unchanged.
