One of the most anticipated SUVs of 2022, the new Mahindra Scorpio is all set to be brought in June and the unofficial bookings for the same have started at select dealerships. Dealerships have started taking the bookings right from Rs 21,000 and one can make a downpayment on cash for max Rs 2 lakh only.
The new Scorpio will be rich in features. It'll receive dual-zone climate control, power-folding ORVMs, cruise control, a large touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless charging, an electric sunroof and more.
Mechanically, the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio will be powered by two engine options - a 2.0L mStallion petrol motor and a 2.2L mHawk diesel unit. The former is the same as seen in the Thar and XUV700, however, the power figures will be between 150 PS and 200 PS.
For the oil burner, it will be available in two tunes just like the XUV700. Both the engines will get a 6-speed manual transmission as standard and a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox will be offered as an option on both the units.
Safety equipment on the new Scorpio includes multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, traction control, tyre pressure monitoring system, rear parking sensors, reverse parking camera, a high-speed alert system, 360-degree camera and more.
The Scorpio will be made available in six and seven-seater options. Along with this, Mahindra will offer a four-wheel-drive setup for both petrol and diesel motors. We expect the 4WD setup to be made available for the top-spec variants.
The prices of the upcoming SUV are expected to be between Rs 11 lakh to Rs 20 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. Once launched, it'll rival the likes of Hyundai Creta, Skoda Kushaq, Kia Seltos, VW Taigun and MG Astor. Yes, these are not the competent rivals as all of these SUVs are front-wheel drive while the new Scorpio gets a rear-wheel drive as standard and 4WD as an option. The above-mentioned SUVs will fall under a similar price bracket as the new Scorpio.
(Expected Price)₹ 12.00 Lakh - ₹ 16.00 Lakh
Expected Launch Date : 27 June 2022
