The Scorpio Classic is here. A new avatar of the legendary SUV

Scorpio Classic, a new avatar of the iconic Scorpio SUV has been launched by Mahindra. Over 20 years, the brand has attained legendary status and represented the tough and authentic DNA of Mahindra SUVs. The Scorpio Classic retains the silhouette of the original but offers more in terms of a refreshed design, contemporary interiors, a new powerful engine, enhanced performance, improved ride quality and built-in technology.

The Scorpio brand has over time remained the popular choice amongst enthusiasts who look for a tough, powerful, and capable ‘authentic’ SUV. It was the first-ever modern SUV designed and developed entirely in-house, establishing Mahindra’s engineering credentials.

The Scorpio Classic can be distinguished by its new bold grille along with a muscular bonnet with hood scoop and the new twin-peaks logo. The new DRLs with the signature Scorpio tower LED tail lamps and new R17 diamond-cut alloy wheels further add to the appeal of the original form. It boasts superior performance – powered by an all-aluminum lightweight GEN- 2 mHawk engine, producing 97 kW (132 PS) of power and 300 Nm torque. A substantial 230 Nm of low-end torque is produced at only 1000 rpm.

The engine is 55 kilos lighter and 14 percent more fuel efficient than the engine that powered the previous model. A new six-speed cable shift has been introduced in the manual transmission for a refined driving experience. The suspension set-up has been enhanced with MTV-CL technology to deliver superior ride and handling. Significant advancement has been made in the steering system for easy maneuverability and control.

The interior sports a new two-tone beige-and-black theme, classic wood pattern console and premium quilted upholstery. The vehicle also has a new 22.86 cm touchscreen infotainment system with phone mirroring and other modern functionalities.

Available in two variants – Classic S and Classic S 11 – the Scorpio Classic will continue to be sold alongside the All-New Scorpio-N which was launched in June this year. The Scorpio Classic will be available in five colours – Red Rage, Napoli Back, Dsat Silver, Pearl White and a newly introduced Galaxy Grey.

The vehicle will be available across Mahindra dealerships for customers to explore and test drive starting today. The prices of the Scorpio Classic will be announced on August 20, 2022.
