New-Gen Mahindra Scorpio Teased Again; Partially Reveals Exterior Design

Until now, pictures of the new-generation Mahindra Scorpio were only seen in fatty camouflage, but Mahindra has now partially revealed its exterior, through yet another official teaser.

2022 Mahindra Scorpio – What does the teaser video reveal?

Compared to the current-gen Mahindra Scorpio, the upgraded model has received more contemporary styling elements such as an XUV700-like vertical chrome slat grille, flanked by dual-barrel LED projector headlamps. We can also see the honeycomb pattern for the air dam, a faux aluminum skid plate, and LED fog lamps with C-shaped LED daytime running lamps (DRLs).

On the side, the dual-tone alloy wheels of the new Scorpio shout style under the nearly circular wheel arches, encased in rugged body cladding. There’s also an apparent kink on the rear door, which is a signature design element that can also be seen on various other Mahindra cars such as XUV300, now-discontinued XUV500, and XUV700. Besides, an adequate amount of chrome has been used in the exterior of the new Scorpio, giving it a premium touch.

While the teaser doesn’t reveal much of the rear design, we can see that its rear bumper with flat chrome lining, a rear fog light with a reverse lamp, and a faux aluminum skid plate.

Speaking of the interior, it has already been revealed through various leaked images. It is likely to get a dual-tone black-&-brown interior, with notable features such as a large dashboard integrated touchscreen infotainment system, connected car tech, single-pane electric sunroof, wireless smartphone charger, roof-mounted speakers, dual-zone climate control, 360-degree camera and much more.

Mahindra is expected to offer the new Scorpio in both 6-& 7-seat configurations.


Under the hood, the 2022 Scorpio will be provided with both 2.0-liter petrol and 2.2-liter diesel engine options, borrowed from Mahindra Thar, albeit in a different state of tune. Transmission options are likely to include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic, linked to a rear-wheel-drivetrain (RWD) as standard, and an optional 4WD setup for select variants.

As suggested by a recently spied test mule, the diesel version of the new Scorpio will be available in two powering tunings, including a 130PS version for the base-spec trims.

Expected Market Debut

Expect Mahindra to unveil the new Scorpio in June 2022 during its 20th-anniversary celebration. It is expected to be sold alongside the ongoing Scorpio.
