The Scorpio is currently priced between Rs 13.53 lakh and Rs 18.61 lakh and we are expecting the Classic pricing to start at Rs 11.99 lakh, as the Scorpio-N will be retailed at a higher price, with introductory pricing being over after 50,000 units. Some reports also suggest that the new Scorpio Classic can be retailed at Rs 10 lakh only. Two variants are expected - a base S model and a top-end S11 variant in the new Scorpio Classic.
The new Mahindra Scorpio Classic has started arriving at the dealerships and various images of the SUV has been shared on the social media, giving us an insight on what we can expect from the SUV. From the looks of the it, the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio, largely remains the same as the previous model, barring some changes to the design to make it look fresh. Mahindra has added LED DRLs which are placed above the fog lamps, while the projector headlights are retained. It also gets a new six-slat grille with Mahindra’s new twin peaks logo placed in the middle, replacing the old Mahindra logo. It is expected that the SUV will come with 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels whereas the lower variants will come with steel wheels.
2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic: Features
The cabin of the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic looks similar to the outgoing model as well, based on the spy shots, but gets various changes to spruce up the offering. It now gets wooden inserts on the center console and some piano black elements as well, while the steering wheel gets new logo. The gear lever is borrowed from the newer Mahindra SUVs like the Mahindra XUV700 and the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N. There's a larger touchscreen infotainment system, which can get smartphone connectivity.
2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic: Engine
The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic will continue to be powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine delivering 140 hp and will be mated with a 6-speed manual transmission. While the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N gets a petrol unit and an automatic transmission, the Scorpio Classic will miss out on these, along with the option of 4×4.
