Several times over the last few years, the much-anticipated new Interior of the Mahindra Scorpio has been observed undergoing testing. We saw the SUV’s interior for the first time in 2019, although it didn’t give many specifics at the time. However, a video has now appeared on the internet that gives us the clearest glimpse yet at the interior of the new Scorpio.

However, a video has now appeared on the internet that gives us the clearest glimpse yet at the interior of the new Scorpio.
- The new Scorpio has the same steering wheel and transmission lever as the XUV700.
- 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines are expected.
- Along with the current Scorpio, it will be available for purchase.
What do we know about the interior of the new Mahindra Scorpio so far?
A disguised Mahindra Scorpio test mule is seen in the video parked near Tabo, Himachal Pradesh, probably undergoing cold-weather testing. The most intriguing feature of the film is the detailed look at the interior of the forthcoming Scorpio.
The dashboard of the new Scorpio is comparable to that of the Toyota Land Cruiser LC 200. A big infotainment touchscreen sits in the center of the new Scorpio’s dashboard, flanked on both sides by AC vents. The controls for the infotainment and HVAC systems are located beneath the screen. The USB ports and power outlet plug are located right in front of the gear lever in the center console. The test mule, by the way, is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission with a traditional handbrake.
On the new Scorpio, the video reveals the presence of a digital instrument cluster and rear AC vents with independent blower controls. However, expect the digital cluster to be available only on higher trim levels, with conventional dials on cheaper trims.
The steering wheel on the test car is remarkably similar to the one on the XUV700. In fact, several switch gears on the new Scorpio, including the steering wheel, gear lever, and control stalks, are expected to be shared with the XUV700. The test mule also had a forward-facing third row of seats instead of the present model’s side-facing jump seats.
Aside from that, the film doesn’t provide any additional details regarding the interior. In comparison to the existing Scorpio, expect the new Scorpio’s interior to be much more premium and have better ergonomics.
Exterior and powertrains of the new Mahindra Scorpio
The 2022 Scorpio is a completely new vehicle with all new foundations. In fact, since its launch in 2002, this will be the first time Scorpio has seen a complete model overhaul. While the boxy and upright shape remains the same, all of the body panels are brand new. A butch and muscular attitude, strong character lines, a kink in the window line, a side-hinged rear door, and vertical tail lamps are all revealed in spy pictures. The new SUV is also significantly bigger than the previous model.
The new Scorpio will be built on the same upgraded ladder frame chassis as the new Thar. As a result, the Scorpio’s powertrains are expected to be shared with the Thar. The 2.0-liter petrol and 2.2-liter diesel engines are likely to be offered in the new Scorpio, with exact specs to be released closer to the launch date. With the engines, Mahindra is expected to offer both manual and automatic gearboxes, with all-wheel drive presumably reserved for the top-spec models.
New Mahindra Scorpio: Release Date, Price, and Competitors
The new Mahindra Scorpio is slated to go on sale later this year, with costs likely to be similar to the XUV700’s lower-spec options. Mahindra will continue to sell the older Scorpio alongside the new one, since the demand for it in smaller towns and for security, escorts remain strong. The Scorpio will have no direct competitors once it is released, as there are no three-row ladder-frame SUVs in this price range in the country “as read and reported by www.autocarindia.com”
