Mahindra Scorpio Classic Finally Launched! Prices to be announced on August 20th

India's favorite SUV gets a makeover with a few new features

The Scorpio Classic, which has been spotted at several dealerships now was finally revealed by Mahindra & Mahindra on August 12th. It’s based on the previous generation’s looks, with a few new design elements and interior styling and mechanical upgrades.

Two variants are available, the S and the S-11. The engine is now an all-aluminum block which makes it 55 kg lighter and therefore slightly more fuel efficient. But it is capable of producing a decent 130 hp and 300 Nm of torque, which is available right from 1000 rpm. The new variant misses out on 4×4 and automatic transmission options. It does however, sport the new Mahindra twin peaks logo on a new front grille, as present on the XUV700 and the recently launched Scorpio-N, along with its signature scooped bonnet. It also gets new 17″ dual tone alloy wheels for the higher variant. The base variant has steel rims. New LED DRLs are present above the fog lamps with the same projector headlights from the previous iteration. The suspension setup has also been improved with MTV-CL technology for better comfort and ride quality.

In the words of Veejay Nakra, President Automotive Division, M&M Ltd, quote, “The Scorpio is a landmark model which has reinforced Mahindra’s reputation of being a manufacturer of authentic and highly desirable SUVs. With over eight lakh customers, the Scorpio has an unbeatable fan following and continues to be loved by proud owners and trusted by eminent institutions like the armed forces, para-military and internal security forces. With the launch of the Scorpio Classic, we are offering the Scorpio fans and enthusiasts a tough yet authentic SUV built to exhibit an ‘attitude’ like never before.”
