First Sneak Peek At 2022 Mahindra Scorpio’s Captain Seats
- 2022 Mahindra Scorpio will be offered in both 6-and 7-seater layouts.
- It will be a tech-savvy offering.
- Launch expected in H2 2022.
Images of the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio’s interior have once again surfaced online, this time revealing the middle-row captain seats. That means the SUV will be offered in both 6-and 7-seater layouts, with the latter featuring a conventional bench seat in the 2nd row. However, unlike the outgoing model, it won’t come in 8 and 9-seat configurations.
2022 Mahindra Scorpio – Other features
In terms of features, the new-generation Scorpio will be a well-loaded offering, featuring an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system (probably with wireless smartphone integration, Alexa support, and connected car tech), a single-pane electric sunroof, dual-zone auto climate control, roof-mounted speakers, 360-degree camera, off-roading modes, multiple airbags, and all-four disc brakes.
Engine and Gearbox
On to the engines, the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio will get the XUV700’s 2.2-litre diesel and 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engines but in a lower state of tune. Transmission options could include a 6-speed manual and torque converter automatic, mated to either a rear-wheel (RWD) or a four-wheel drivetrain (4WD).
Expected launch, price, and competition check
Mahindra is likely to launch the new Scorpio in the second half of 2022. It will likely be priced from around Rs 10 lakh, putting it in the same league as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, Maruti S-Cross, and Nissan Kicks.
