Mahindra launches new Scorpio-N SUV: Price, Features, & Specifications

Mahindra & Mahindra has launched the much-anticipated Mahindra Scorpio-N SUV in India at Rs. 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The new SUV joins the recently launched XUV700 and Thar in Mahindra’s modern lineup of accessible yet premium SUVs. The Scorpio-N will be sold alongside the previous generation of the Scorpio, which will be renamed as the Scorpio Classic. Here is everything you need to know about the new Mahindra Scorpio-N.

A New Generation

Since its launch in 2002, the Mahindra Scorpio has become one of the iconic Indian SUVs, along side the Tata Safari and the Mahindra Thar. Despite its immense popularity in India and abroad, the Scorpio has mostly received facelifts for the last two decades.

The new Scorpio-N is a completely new SUV and is built on a ladder frame chassis. This differentiates the Scorpio-N from the XUV700, which is built on a monocoque chassis, and should offer greater off-roading capability than the SUVs in its price segment. Additionally, the new Scorpio-N is a three-row SUV with a forward-facing third row, which should improve overall useability.

Scorpio-N Exteriors and Interior

With the introduction of a new generation, the Mahindra Scorpio-N is receiving a complete overhaul of the exterior and interior design. The updated design makes it a more desirable SUV than the previous generation and should help it compete against other SUVs in its price segment.

Scorpio-N Exteriors

The new Scorpio-N retains the muscular but boxy silhouette of the previous generation Scorpio, and updates the aesthetic for the modern customer. The new SUV has grown in size and measures 4,662 mm in length, 1,917 mm in width, and 1,870 mm in height. The wheelbase has also grown to 2,750 mm, offering more space for second and third row passengers.

Mahindra Scorpio-N front

The front of the Scorpio-N now sports a more mature design that incorporates elements of the previous generation’s aesthetic. The square headlamp cluster and the new six-slat grille provide a more mature first impression. The side profile of the new SUV is now more muscular while also featuring black plastic cladding for added ruggedness.

Fans of the old Scorpio will notice that the new SUV lacks the hood scoop that added more character to the design. While it loses the scoop, the Scorpio-N gains a sunroof, which will appeal more to the customer looking at a premium SUV. Moving to the rear, the new Scorpio-N retains the vertical tail lamps but with a completely redesigned look.

Scorpio-N Interiors

Mahindra has focused on a premium experience for the Scorpio-N’s interiors and has made use of the increase in size to improve the passenger experience. The dashboard has been redesigned with the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display flanked by vertical AC vents. The centre console features physical buttons and knobs to control the AC as well as the infotainment system.

The most significant change in the new Scorpio-N are the front facing third row seats that replace the side-facing jump seats of the previous generation. The new Mahindra SUV is now more of a three-row SUV than before and should appeal to a wider audience. Unlike the XUV700, Mahindra is offering the Scorpio-N in six and seven seater variants, further differentiating the two SUVs.

Scorpio-N Features

As the Scorpio-N moves into more premium territory, Mahindra is providing more premium features on he new SUV. In addition to the electric sunroof, the Scorpio-N is also equipped with the following:

  • 6-way powered driver’s seat adjustment
  • 12-speaker Sony sound system
  • Rear camera
  • Up to 6 airbags
  • 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display
  • 7-inch MID cluster
  • Dual zone automatic climate control
  • Boot space of up to 786 litres
  • Hill hold and hill descent control
  • Up to 18-inch alloy wheels

Scorpio-N Engines and Transmissions

Mahindra has equipped the Scorpio-N with the same engines and transmissions as the XUV700. The 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine produces 200 PS of power and 380 Nm of torque, while the 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine produces 175 PS of power and 400 Nm of torque. Both engines are offered with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Mahindra Scorpio-N off-road

The top-end variants of the Scorpio-N are also equipped with Mahindra’s 4 XPLOR 4WD system with terrain modes and a low range selector. The inclusion of the 4WD system provides buyers with a more family-oriented off-road SUV while the Thar can continue being the off-road enthusiast’s trusted companion.
