Mahindra Scorpio Classic unveiled. On sale August 20, 2022

Mahindra has unveiled the Scorpio Classic. The SUV will go on sale on August 20, 2022 and will come in 2 variants – base Classic S and the more feature loaded Classic S 11.

The Scorpio Classic gets more than just Mahindra’s new logo; quite a few bits have changed in this updated SUV. The Scorpio has been on sale in India for the past two decades and has been a strong seller for Mahindra ever since.

The Scorpio Classic gets a completely new face. Mahindra’s new twin peaks logo finds a place on the redesigned grille. The front bumpers are also new. That’s not all, the SUV gets a revised set of LED projector headlamps along with new fog lamps as well as DRLs.

The redesigned 17-inch dual tone wheels makes the Scorpio look more premium than earlier. On the rear, the signature Tower LED tail lamps find a place on the rear after more than a decade. The side facing rear door also gets a classic badging on the SUV.

Inside, the changes are minimal over the outgoing Scorpio. While the older model got a grey and black interior, the Scorpio Classic gets a black and beige combination. It gets a new 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is now Android-based and supports screen mirroring. The dashboard and centre console now get wooden inserts, and the steering wheel has a leatherette finish.

The Mahindra Scorpio Classic is being offered with three seating layout options – two 7-seaters and one 9-seater. While one 7-seater option gets two captain’s seats in the second row with a bench in the third row, the other gets a bench in the second row and jump seats for two in the third. The 9-seater, meanwhile, gets a bench in the second row and jump seats for four in the rear.

In terms of features, the Scorpio Classic gets cruise control, rear parking sensors, AC vents for the second row and steering-mounted controls. As for safety, the Mahindra Scorpio Classic will be offered with two airbags, and the carmaker has confirmed more will be added in the future to comply with the new norms.

The SUV gets the new Gen 2 mHawk 2.2 litre Diesel engine that makes 128 bhp and 300 Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. There is no Petrol, Auto or 4×4 version on offer. Mahindra is claiming to have improved the NVH levels on the car and is also promising a superior ride quality. On the safety front the Scorpio features like ABS and 2 airbags as standard equipment.
