After many spy shots and leaks, Mahindra has finally revealed the new Scorpio Classic. The Scorpio Classic is a refreshed version of the old Scorpio that will co-exist with the new Scorpio N. The Scorpio Classic is undergoing many cosmetic and mechanical changes. Pricing for the Scorpio Classic will be revealed in the coming weeks and it will be offered in a base S version and a top-end S11 version.
Mahindra made some changes to the Scorpio Classic to keep it fresh. The projector headlights are more or less the same but Mahindra has added LED daytime running lights which are placed above the fog lights. It also gets a new six-slat grille with Mahindra’s new Twin Peaks logo placed in the middle. The S11 variant comes with 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels while the S variant comes with steel wheels. The rear is more or less the same, the only change being that the LED taillights are now red in color. The Scorpio Classic will be available in five colors – Red Rage, Napoli Back, Dsat Silver, Pearl White and a new Galaxy Grey.
The interiors of the Scorpio Classic have also been revamped. It receives new wood inserts on the center console and some piano black elements as well. The steering wheel houses Mahindra’s new logo and the shifter has been borrowed from newer Mahindra SUVs like the XUV700. It also has a new, larger 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system that comes with smartphone mirroring. Other than that, the Scorpio Classic comes with automatic climate control, push-button start and stop, and cruise control, to name a few. . The Scorpio Classic is offered in 7 and 9 places. The Scorpio Classic is powered by a new 2.2-liter mHawk Gen 2 engine that produces 132hp and 300Nm of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and power is sent to the rear wheels.

The engine is 55 kilos lighter and 14% more fuel efficient than the engine that powered the previous model. Mahindra also tweaked the suspension to reduce body roll and improved the steering for better control. The Scorpio Classic will be positioned below the recently launched Scorpio N. The price of the Scorpio is currently between ₹13.53 lakh and ₹18.61 lakh (ex. showroom). We expect the price range to narrow given that Mahindra only offers two versions.
