Mahindra Scorpio Classic Launched At A Price Of INR 11.99 Lakh
The much anticipated Scorpio Classic has finally been released by Mahindra, priced at 11.99 lakh for the base S version and 15.49 lakh for the S11 model. The Scorpio Classic, a redesigned version of the previous Scorpio, will coexist with the new Scorpio N since the Classic continues to be popular in rural areas and smaller cities while the more expensive Scorpio N will appeal to younger customers.
In order to keep the Mahindra Scorpio Classic interesting, Mahindra made various tweaks. While Mahindra installed LED DRLs that are mounted above the fog lamps, the projector headlights remain largely the same. Additionally, a new six-slat grille is added, with Mahindra’s new twin peaks emblem in the center. While the S version has steel wheels, the S11 model has 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. The main difference in the back is that the LED taillamps are now red rather than being more or less the same hue. Five colors—Red Rage, Napoli Back, Dsat Silver, Pearl White, and a brand-new shade called Galaxy Grey—will be offered for the Scorpio Classic.
The Mahindra Scorpio Classic’s interiors have been updated as well, and the color scheme is now black and beige. On the center console, new hardwood inserts are added, and there are also some piano-black accents. The gear lever has been taken from the more recent Mahindra SUVs, including the XUV700, and the steering wheel features the company’s new emblem. Additionally, a new, bigger 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone mirroring is included. The Scorpio Classic also has push-button start-stop, cruise control, automatic temperature control, and other features. The Scorpio Classic is available in both 7 and 9-seat configurations. A new Gen 2, 2.2-liter mHawk engine that generates 132 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque powers the Scorpio Classic.
The engine is 14 percent more fuel-efficient and 55 kg lighter than the one that powered the previous generation. Mahindra has enhanced the steering input for greater handling and adjusted the suspension to eliminate body roll.
