Mahindra has been selling the Scorpio in the Indian market since 2002. With passing time, the Indian utility car manufacturer has given the SUV exterior enhancements multiple times. With the facelift being tested for quite some time now, from the images that emerged, it’s almost obvious that the car will get only cosmetic changes since majority of the body shell remains the same.
A new set of images has now surfaced on the internet revealing the interiors of the Scorpio facelift.
The SUV gets a lighter shade dual tone interiors with beige and grey colours. The dashboard seems to be heavily revised to look much more with the current times. Steering wheel resembles to the unit found on the XUV5OO with steering mounted audio controls. Instrument cluster has been redesigned too and gets a blue backlight now. It also has a MID placed between the speedometer and the tachometer. Information such as TPMS, differential lock etc. is also displayed in the instrument cluster, along with the gear chosen shown in the MID. ORVM electric adjustment knob is found to the RHS of the steering wheel, below the AC vent. Next to that, you have the button to release the fuel lid and the headlamp level adjustment.
Gear stalk still looks the same crude and tall unit, with a beige gear knob. AC vents get chrome / silver finish. Centre console gets piano black finish. A driver armrest in beige is also to be seen in the images. Power window switches seem to have been moved to the door pads for better ergonomics. Rear passengers also get an AC vent, and a charging point below.
Apart from this, going with the current trend, expect the facelift to come with LEDs at the front and back. Revisions in the headlamp, fog lamp and bumper areas along with a new design for the alloy wheels. The Scorpio facelift is expected to use the same 120 BHP, 2.2-litre mHawk and the 75 BHP, 2.5-litre m2DiCR engines mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
