The exact booking numbers of the Mahindra Scorpio Classic are unknown, but considering the tweet, it has to be a significant number. The numbers trailing the Mahindra Scorpio Classic can be credited to the legacy and looks that it carries forward, even when selling alongside the new Scorpio-N. However, this isn't a problem for the Scorpio-N as it created a record of getting 1 lakh bookings in just 30 minutes after the booking started.

Adding to it, the prices of the Mahindra Scorpio Classic are slightly less compared to the Scorpio-N. The Classic has a starting price of Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom) in the Indian market, which is about Rs 50,000 less compared to Scorpio-N.
Moreover, the SUV's updates make it an attractive proposition. The new and larger 9-inch touchscreen entertainment system, as well as a new dual-tone black and beige decor, are added to the cabin. Additionally, there is a height-adjustable driver's seat, a semi-digital instrument cluster, a multi-function steering wheel wrapped in a leatherette with audio controls, and the choice of captain seats in the second row. There are two variations of the SUV available: Classic S and S11. Only the highest-spec model receives the majority of the features. Adding toppings to the cake, it also gets the proven 2.2-liter mHawk diesel engine giving out 130 bhp and 300 Nm of torque.
