The new Scorpio facelift, which comes in seven, eight and nine-seater configurations will be available in four variants - S3, S5, S7, and S11. Today as we launch the New All Powerful Scorpio, we have further enhanced its on road presence while retaining its core DNA of power, thrill and adventure. The S11 variant also comes with optional four-wheel drive. Mahindra Scorpio facelift is powered by the 2.2-liter mHawk diesel engine, but now the oil burner comes in two states of tune which is, the existing 120 bhp version and a tuned 140 bhp version.

The variant line-up has been revised as well, and power and torque will now vary variant-wise. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard and now there is an automatic option as well, which uses the same 6-speed torque converter that does duty on the XUV500. The base variant retains the 75 bhp m2DICR engine.

The new Scorpio also gets the 6th generation Borg Warner Turbo Charger alosngside the 6-Speed Transmission.

Visually, the design of the 2017 Mahindra Scorpio largely remains unchanged, but, the SUV does come with a bunch of styling updates, mainly to the front and rear section.

Mahindra and Mahindra on Tuesday, November 14, announced the launch of its much-awaited the Scorpio facelift in India. The facelift offers the Micro Hybrid technology that was available in the earlier model. The front bumper gets minor design changes as well, while the side turn indicators are now mounted onto the wing mirrors. The rear end also comes with some considerable changes and the biggest change is the revised tailgate that now traded the stylish black element for a chrome slat at the centre. The taillamps get a red-tint and the rear door misses out on the black plastic cladding.

Coming to the interior, the cabin gets an upholstery change. Tech on the top-spec Scorpio includes cruise control, a tyre pressure monitoring system, automatic headlamps and wipers, automatic climate control and Mahindra's Blue Sense app that allows for control of the infotainment system.

The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio facelift is now well-equipped and more powerful. The Scorpio would take on the likes of Tata Safari Storme, Hyundai Creta and Renault Duster.
