Auto giant Mahindra has finally teased its most awaited facelift launch of the year, the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio. Although the teaser doesn’t reveal much about the looks of the car, it states the new SUV’s tagline as ‘The Big Daddy of SUVs’. Codenamed Z101, the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio launch date is expected to be sometime around June this year, as it would mark its 20th birthday.
Test mules of the next-gen 2022 Mahindra Scorpio have been spotted multiple times across the country while its spy shots have been doing rounds on the internet for a year. The teaser video doesn’t reveal much of the new SUV, except its dual-chambered LED headlamps with C-shaped LED DRLs and LED fog lamps. Its spy shots, however, disclose its butch styling along with an upright nose. It is also speculated to be the second SUV model to get Mahindra’s new twin-peaks logo, after XUV700.
The new Mahindra Scorpio will feature dual-tone black and brown interiors, including its seat upholstery. The SUV is expected to come with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a semi-digital 7-inch instrument cluster, connected car tech support, an electric sunroof and wireless phone charging.
Speaking of its safety equipment, the SUV will come with dual-zone climatic control, driving modes, auto engine Idle Start/Stop (ISS) technology, multiple airbags, hill start/descent assist, traction control, 360-degree view camera, TPMS and automatic headlamps and wipers.
Coming to its mechanical specs, the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio will be powered by a 2.2L turbo-petrol and a 2.2L diesel engine unit. Transmission options will include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The vehicle will get both a 4-wheel-drive and a rear-wheel-drive layout. It will be offered in both 6 and 7 seater configurations.
The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio price in India is expected to start from around Rs 10 lakhs (ex-showroom).
