2020 Mahindra Scorpio could make its global debut at the upcoming Auto Expo before it goes on sale with a number of external and internal changes
Mahindra & Mahindra plans to overhaul many SUVs, including the Scorpio, TAR and XUV500. The trio's smooth runs have already been spotted across the country. In particular, Scorpio from Mahindra in 2020 and Tarr are expected to make their debut at the upcoming auto show in February.
Scorpio plays an integral role in Mahindra which brings large quantities of sales. On sale since 2002, the working horse has suffered two major factors in its lifespan. One in 2006 and the latest update in 2014. The forthcoming model seems to be a radical departure from the existing Scorpio.
The spiral images published by us here show a detailed overview of possible internal changes. Although covered in camouflage, some of the cabin's elements can be seen. The center console and control dial look almost similar to those used in the existing Scorpio, as well as the chunky steering wheel with mounted controls.
Mahindra could improve the top finish on the dashboard and other areas, along with updating the quality of the material. In addition, the dual-tone cab color scheme will also likely see revision. High-quality variants will boast a larger touchscreen info system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
The test muslin was positioned in the middle and could be an eight-inch aggregate as opposed to the seven-inch one currently present, especially within the range. A digital instrument cluster may be offered, but the look remains the same in the test prototype.
To meet the strict standards for crash testing, Scorpio is expected to have a third row in Mahindra by 2020 with the seats forward. The general dimensions of the forthcoming Scorpio have also grown, leading to more space for passengers inside the cabin.
As for the powerplant, it is believed to use the all-new 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine, which will also power the second-generation TAR. It will be BSVI compliant from the word go and can be merged with either a manual or an automatic transmission.
