Mahindra & Mahindra has plans to launch a slew of new products in 2021 as the second generation XUV500 is expected to be the first one to arrive early next year. Then next generation Scorpio can make an appearance. The homegrown auto major has the Bolero and Scorpio as two of its top-selling vehicles in the Indian market for many years, and the Scorpio is definitely due a big upgrade considering the rise in competition. Find out below about 5 expectations about Mahindra Scorpio 2021
Recently, the home-grown carmaker registered new names for the next-generation Scorpio in 4 different formats (Scorpio Sting, the Sting, Sting and Scorpio Sting). Mahindra may use the all-new Sting name-plate for the new SUV. According to reports, Mahindra will also sell the current generation model.
Now, yet another name for the Scorpio has been registered by Mahindra, and the name is ScorpioN – Scorpio to the power of N; in mathematical terms. Just like Sting, this is also likely to be the name for a more powerful variant of upcoming Scorpio. Mahindra may either use Sting or N as the production name.
Engine and Performance
One of the major update will come in the form of the all-new 2.2L mStallion turbocharged petrol engine. It’s the same powertrain that does duty in the new Thar, but it will be tuned for generating higher power output. The 2021 Mahindra Scorpio petrol version will deliver power around 190bhp and 380Nm of peak torque.
There will also be an updated 2.2L turbo diesel engine on offer. It will produce power around 160bhp with 350Nm of torque. The diesel engine may only come with a 6-speed manual transmission. The petrol engine may be available with both manual and automatic transmission. TGDi engines may also be available.
Like all the modern launches, the next generation Mahindra Scorpio will come with reasonably simple interiors but with all the modern features. A fresh dashboard layout with touchscreen infotainment system will be present. The new Mahindra Scorpio is also expected to share a lot of interior components with the Mahindra Marazzo which will keep the prices of the new generation quite competitive. The next generation Mahindra Scorpio’s interiors has been conceptualized and shaped at Mahindra’s North American Technical Centre in Detroit, United States, and engineered and developed at the Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai.
New Design and Exteriors
The next generation Mahindra Scorpio will also get new body panels and come with a similar upright stance which is a trademark of this SUV since the early times. New Mahindra Scorpio will also keep pedestrian safety norms also on the forefront. More about 5 expectations about Mahindra Scorpio 2021 below.
The tail-end of the vehicle will be short and stubby, with a near-vertical tailgate. We expect the taillights to be LED units, and there will probably be ‘Scorpio’ lettering on the tailgate. The loading lip on the prototype models is quite low, which should make it easy to load luggage.
Better Safety and Platform
We have already spotted the new generation Mahindra Scorpio testing for quite some time. The next generation Mahindra Scorpio may be based on the next-generation Thar’s ladder-frame chassis. Thar’s chassis is pretty safe with 4-stat GNCAP rating.
