New Mahindra Scorpio

The Scorpio has been a very successful product for Mahindra since the last decade and the main reason for its sales performance can be attributed to the introduction of the next-gen model in September last year. Mahindra & Mahindra sold 6,060 units of the Scorpio during the same month, its best recorded sales performance in a single month.

Powering the new Mahindra Scorpio is a 2.2 litre mHawk engine which bangs out 120 bhp of power and 280 Nm of peak torque coupled to a five-speed manual transmission. The Scorpio`s base variant is equipped by a 2.5 litre 75 bhp oil burner. The SUV also features a stiffened chassis and a new suspension setup.

The automaker also intends to launch an automatic variant of the Scorpio and a facelifted version of the XUV 500 this year.
