Mahindra will continue to provide the previous Scorpio model, which will be renamed the Scorpio Classic and make its debut on August 12, alongside the new Scorpio N. The Scorpio Classic will retain its 7- and 9-seater configurations but gain slight aesthetic and interior improvements, extra features, and a new suspension system.
The Scorpio Classic’s look and interior are essentially intact, as seen by recent spy photos. The Mahindra “Twin Peaks” emblem will be added to the Classic, which will also get a new grille design and a fake skid plate. The higher trim levels of the Scorpio Classic now come with 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, while the base model only comes with steel wheels.
A bigger touchscreen infotainment system with a touch-sensitive control on the left side of the screen will be installed inside the Scorpio Classic. Mahindra has placed piano black accents on the dashboard and dark oak trim inserts in the centre console. Additionally, it will have a redesigned gear lever that was adapted from vehicles like the Thar and XUV700.
A revised suspension setup for the new Scorpio Classic, which would assist lessen body roll and top-heavy handling — two major concerns about the original Scorpio — was something we had previously reported. The SUV’s single 140 horsepower, 2.2-liter diesel engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. It will not be offered with a 4WD or automatic transmission option.
