Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. is working on launching the BS6-compliant version of the Scorpio in the coming weeks.
Now, the homegrown automaker has started accepting the bookings for a token amount of Rs. 5,000 on its official website.
Meanwhile, the company is yet to reveal the pricing and availability details of the car.
Here are more details.
A look at the BS6 Mahindra Scorpio
The BS6 Mahindra Scorpio would retain the design of its BS4 counterpart. It would feature a similar boxy stance sporting an appealing front fascia with a vertical-slate grille, sleek headlamps as well as fog lamp housings, and faux skid plates.
The car would come with blacked-out roof rails as well as B-pillars, 17-inch alloy wheels, and chrome garnishing on the tailgate.
Inside the cabin
Inside, the new Mahindra Scorpio will sport a spacious seven-seater cabin with leather upholstery, automatic climate control, and a three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel with cruise control.
The car will house a Bluetooth-enabled 7-inch touchscreen infotainment panel but misses out on smartphone connectivity features such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Furthermore, it will also retain the standard safety features of the outgoing model.
Power and performance
The new Mahindra Scorpio will draw power from a BS6-compliant 2.2-liter four-cylinder diesel engine (mHawk) that will come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. The motor is capable of producing 140bhp of maximum power and 320Nm of peak torque.
Finally, how much will it cost?
There is no official word on the pricing and availability of the BS6-compliant Mahindra Scorpio as of now. However, it is likely to come at a starting price of around Rs. 11.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
Lastly, the SUV will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, Kia Seltos, and Tata Harrier.
