The Scorpio launch is only a few days away now. Mahindra has already revealed a lot of information about the Scorpio-N, like the design and features. But one thing we are still in the dark about are the engine specifications. The biggest question is that whether the Scorpio-N is more powerful than XUV700? There are some numbers roaming around which claim to be the Scorpio-N engine specifications. We also have gotten our hands on this new information. In today’s article, we will discuss the leaked Mahindra Scorpio-N engine specs and by the end of this article, you will have a fair idea about which of the two is more powerful.

Scorpio-N engine specs – Is Scorpio-N more powerful?

As mentioned above, there have been a lot of rumours regarding the engine specifications. So take these figures with a pinch of salt. The Scorpio-N will come with a 2.2-litre diesel engine. So will the diesel engine get two tunes? Its lower variants is said to get a tune of 130bhp & 300Nm of torque. This tune is only said to come with a manual gearbox option. Higher diesel variants are said to make 172bhp & 370Nm(MT)/400Nm(AT) of torque. What about the petrol engine? The petrol engine is said to be a 2.0-litre unit capable of producing 197bhp & 380Nm of torque. This is the same engine that the XUV700 gets. Both the diesel and petrol engines will mostly get 4×4 options. If these specifications are to be believed, the XUV700 will still be powerful than the Scorpio-N, at least in the diesel department. However, if these are the true specifications, both SUVs should be equally matched in the petrol department.
