2022 Mahindra Scorpio N Scores A 5-star Rating In Global NCAP
Under the updated safety test standards, the Mahindra Scorpio-N received a 5-star rating in the most recent set of Global NCAP safety tests. In testing with child occupants, it receives a 3-star rating, nonetheless.
Adult occupant safety testing for Mahindra’s SUV earned a score of 29.25 out of a possible 34, earning it a 5-star grade. The Mahindra Scorpio head N’s and neck protection for the driver and passenger received good ratings from test participants. The driver’s and passenger’s chests only receive modest protection, though.
The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio N demonstrated good occupant protection in the side impact test with a deformable barrier, scoring 16 out of a potential 17 points under the revised testing protocol. The Mahindra SUV passed the side pole impact tests with a “OK” grade, although the chest area of the occupants obtained a “poor” rating.
The Scorpio-bodyshell N’s and footwell region were stable and able to resist additional loads, according to GNCAP.
In the child occupant protection tests, the Scorpio-N received a score of 28.93 out of 49, earning it a 3-star rating. This includes the maximum dynamic score of 24 and 4.93 points out of 12 for the installation of a child restraint device.
The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio N was put through its paces by GNCAP using two infant dummies: one 18 months old and the other 3 years old. They were secured in the vehicle utilizing support legs and i-size anchorages, both of which reduced the risk of head exposure in the case of a frontal collision. Additionally, the CRS provided complete side impact protection.
The SUV’s ISOFIX mounting points are located on the outer rear seats of the second row, according to the testers.
A vehicle only receives a 5-star rating under the new Global NCAP standards if it achieves the necessary scores and complies with GNCAP’s requirements for ESC, pedestrian protection, pole side impact, and seat belt reminders.
The fact that the entire procedure has been redesigned makes it a little challenging to compare vehicles evaluated using the old protocols to those tested using the new ones. However, a star rating under the new protocols is reflective of more well-rounded protection that takes into account side impact as well as active safety features like ESC, which helps prevent an accident in the first place. A star rating under the old protocols was reflective of performance in a front crash test.
The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio N, which debuted this year, costs between Rs. 11.99 lakh and Rs. 21.65 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It is available in the Z2, Z4, Z6, Z8, and Z8L trims, and you can choose between a 2.2-liter turbo-diesel engine and a 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine. The latter produces 175 horsepower and up to 400 Nm of torque. Each is connected to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive is available on only a few diesel types.
