Saturday 19 April 2014, 11:19 AM by

The Scorpio SUV from Mahindra has recently bagged the top spot for being the highest selling SUV in the country. To secure the top position like a well guarded fort, Mahindra is expected to launch a face-lifted version of the Scorpio SUV sometime during the festive season in the second half of 2014. Currently, the vehicle is being developed under the codename S-594.

The changes are expected to be purely cosmetic in nature and the engine shall be retained with the existing line of 2.2 litre M-Hawk turbo diesel engine. It is anticipated that the power and torque figures could be increased from the existing 120 bhp with 290 Nm of torque to 140 bhp and 330 Nm of torque. The SUV may get six speed automatic transmission this time apart from five speed manual gearbox. The suspension may be worked upon to deliver a smoother ride quality at the rear and improved handling.

The interiors may receive new upholstery in fabric and come with leather options to make it look a bit more up-market and stylish. Interesting features like start-stop system, steering mounted controls, Bluetooth with USB and aux-in connectivity have been included as a standard feature. On the exterior, the Scorpio SUV may receive projector headlamps, daytime running lights and LED tail lamps. The front section may probably be designed to find some resemblance with the XUV 500.

Mahindra has not spoken on the pricing aspect as of now, but with all the array of interesting features and improved styling, it is anticipated that it may be priced on a higher side. Detailing on the pricing and exact technical specification shall be unveiled post an official launch sometime later by the company.
