The new generation Mahindra Scorpio is one of the most awaited cars of 2022. Ahead of its launch, it has been spotted many times, however with a camouflage on. Recently, Mahindra started teasing the SUV via teasers. The latest teaser gave us quite a bit of the exterior show but the car was still not revealed completely. However today, we have leaked spy shots of the exterior of the new Mahindra Scorpio, and that too, without any camouflage. These images were uploaded on the Instagram handle that goes by the name ‘Scorpio_2022_official’. In this article, we have shared the leaked images and have discussed everything that we can make out from them.
The new generation Mahindra Scorpio has been given a very modern design language but manages to retain the boxy design language. We can see C-shaped DRLS surrounding the fog lamps. Also, we can see the main headlamp being divided into two blocks; one housing the projector lamps and one housing reflector lamps. The projectors are expected to sport the low beam lamps whereas the reflectors are expected to sport high beam lamps. Both the blocks are integrated in a single headlamp unit. As you already know that the rear boot of the new Scorpio is side-opening and this is once again confirmed from these spy shots. One thing to note here is that this particular unit comes with the old Mahindra logo. however, once this SUV is officially launched, we expect it to sport Mahindra’s new ‘Twin Peaks’ logo that we get to see on the XUV700 as well.
The new generation Scorpio is mostly expected to come powered by the 2.0-litre petrol engine and the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. Talking about the transmission options, it could get a six-speed manual and a six-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox. Also, a 4×4 drivetrain option for better off-roading is expected to be a part of the offer list.
Mahindra Scorpio Exterior leaked – Features & Interiors
From all previous spy shots, we have already mentioned in detail what we can expect in this Scorpio in terms of features and interiors. Summing it up in short, features like dual-zone climate control, semi-digital instrument cluster, normal-sized electric sunroof, connected car tech, premium sound system, etc. are expected to be a part of the feature list. ADAS is not expected to make its way to the Scorpio however, the brand could plan to offer it in the top-spec variant to enhance the value-for-money quotient and make the new Scorpio future-proof.

We expect the new Mahindra Scorpio to launch in June 2022 (next month). As far as pricing is concerned, we expect it to start with an aggressive pricing of close to Rs 10 lakhs (ex-showroom).
