Mahindra will be launching the next generation Scorpio two days from now. In a bid to garner more excitement, the company has released two new images disclosing further details of the SUV. The pictures are courtesy of a contest that the manufacturer is running on social media websites.
The new pictures show that the car will be getting a silver-finish fender bezel within which the turn indicators are housed. The second snap shows up-close the design of the 17-inch, 5-spoke alloy wheels. The new Scorpio will have a new chassis and the 5-speed manual gearbox has been revised. The front gets a black tooth-like grille with dash of chrome, projector headlamps with LED DRLs on top and a reworked bumper. The rear gets LED tail lights with the extended reflectors of the previous generation being replaced with grab handles to facilitate easy ingress/egress. The backdoor gets black cladding with the license plate portion getting a silver finish.
All the variants (S2, S4, S6, S8 and S10) with the exception of the base S2 variant (which gets 2.5litre m2DiCr engine) will get 2.2litre mHawk diesel units. No automatic transmission will be offered contrary to some reports circulating the net.
The Scorpio is now quite old in the market but despite its age it is still raking in good sales numbers for the company. The launch will also help the manufacturer make the most of the festive season during which a major chunk of the annual sales are executed.
