More dope on the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic

Written by Rohit Tonapi

At the time of the Scorpio-N’s announcement, Mahindra said that it will continue to sell the previous-generation Scorpio as the Scorpio Classic. Hence, after the launch of the 2022 Scorpio-N, Mahindra’s next launch will likely be the Scorpio Classic. The Scorpio Classic won’t just get a name change but also a few changes. We have seen spy shots of the Scorpio Classic earlier as well, but now we get to see the SUV in much better pictures. The new spy shots also reveal the interior of the Scorpio Classic. 

2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic New Spy Shots – What Do We See?

Two test mules of the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic were spotted, one in red and the other in white. The test mules were spotted near Nashik, near the brand’s manufacturing plant. Looking at the spy shots, the projector headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels hint that they may be the top-end variants of the SUV. 

On the outside, the Scorpio Classic will get a new front grille which will now sport the new ‘Twin Peak’ logo. Other changes will include changes to the front bumper and the side cladding. On the sides, you can also see the new 5-spoke 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. Tyre size will remain identical to the previous model. At the rear, the tailgate also gets the new ‘Twin Peak’ logo instead of the old oval one. 

On the inside, the top-end variant of the Scorpio Classic will get a host of features. These include a touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, steering-mounted controls, cruise control and more. The steering wheel also gets the ‘Twin Peak’ logo. The brand has carried over the instrument cluster from the outgoing model.

2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic – What Do We Know?

From a new type-approval document leak, we now know that Mahindra will offer the Scorpio Classic in two variants – S and S11. Both the variants will be available in either a 9-seat or 7-seat configuration. As for the engine options, the Scorpio Classic will continue to use the 2.2-litre mHawk turbo-diesel mill. The same engine also does duty in some other Mahindra SUVs. In the Scorpio Classic, the engine will make 130 HP at 3,750 rpm. The engine will only come with a 6-speed manual transmission. Since the 2022 Scorpio Classic test mules had minimal camouflage, it is likely that the launch will take place soon.
