The next-generation Mahindra Scorpio will have a completely new exterior and interior design, as well as a slew of new features.
The new Mahindra Scorpio has been in development for quite some time. In the last two and a half years, test mules of the upcoming ladder-on-frame SUV have been spotted numerous times. Spy shots of the new-generation Scorpio have surfaced in recent years, and they’ve revealed some interesting details.
Interiors of the Mahindra Scorpio 2022 have leaked completely
The new gen Scorpio is still being tested ahead of its debut. UCL is credited with the most recent spy photos (upcoming car leaks). The update was shared by automotive enthusiast Neelesh Bajaj. We now have a detailed look at the interiors of the Mahindra Scorpio 2022 thanks to new spy shots.
The interiors of the Mahindra Scorpio 2022 are a significant departure from the current model. It will feature a new dual-tone dashboard with a larger touchscreen infotainment display, new vertically positioned air-conditioning vents, and new dual-tone seat upholstery.
Between the speedometer and tachometer dials is an advanced multi-information display. You can get information about the door open, tyre pressure, tyre direction, average speed, trip metre, range, seat belt reminder, temperature, and so on.
Most importantly, instead of jump seats in the third row, the new Scorpio features forward-facing seats. When the third row seats are upright, the boot space is minimal. When folded, the boot space is increased.
Seats appear to be spacious and comfortable. There are rear air vents, roof-mounted speakers, a sunroof, a start/stop button, a wireless charger, a drive mode selector, a height-adjustable driver seat, and a lever that allows the second row seats to be tumbled down to access the third row.
Exteriors of the Mahindra Scorpio 2022
The new Scorpio’s exterior design is significantly improved over the current model. A more aggressive front fascia with a massive multi-slatted front grille with chrome embellishments is part of this. New dual-pod projector LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs flank the redesigned grille on both sides. It has a re-profiled front bumper with a wider air dam and a large metallic skid plate that gives it a tough look.
New fog lamp enclosures are surrounded by C-shaped chrome trims on the front bumper. The 2022 Scorpio’s side profile is mostly clean and understated, but it appears to be slightly longer than its predecessor, with a longer rear overhang. The Scorpio’s boxy silhouette has been retained, with a flat roofline and upright pillars, though the edges appear to be more rounded.
The new Scorpio will keep the side-hinged tailgate and vertical tail lamps, though their designs will be completely different. Multi-spoke alloy wheels, roof rails, and a side step for easier entry and exit are also notable visual highlights. Check out the new 2022 Scorpio in action in the video below.
Staff Training for Dealers Will Begin Next Month
Mahindra will begin dealership training for the new-generation Scorpio next month, according to the latest information we’ve received. Sharman D’Souza deserves credit for sharing the news. Interestingly, the start of dealer training coincides with the rumoured June unveiling of the new Scorpio.
Scorpio will celebrate its 20th anniversary in the Indian market next month. The first-generation Scorpio was released in June 2002. The new-generation Scorpio could be released to the public in the months of July or August of this year.
Two engines will power the new Mahindra Scorpio: a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine and a 2.0-litre mStallion turbo petrol engine. Both engines are available with a 6-speed manual or torque converter automatic transmission. A 4×4 drivetrain with a low-range transfer case is expected to be available on higher-spec models.
