The Mahindra Scorpio has been given a mild update in the form of a more potent diesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Here are some specification details as well as pricing.
The Scorpio S11 gains the 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel mHawk engine which delivers 103 kW and 320 Nm. Previously, it could only muster 88 kW.
It's just as robust offroad as before, with a rugged ladder frame chassis, shift-on-the-fly tech and available in both 4x2 and 4x4. There's 195 mm worth of suspension travels and 180 mm of ground clearance for those wanting to venture off tar.
The vehicle comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a bonnet scoop, clear reflector headlamps and LED rear lights, while the cabin sees the addition of Mahindra's latest 7-inch touchscreen with satnav. There's also Bluetooth phone connectivity, reverse camera and parking sensors. Finally, there's a leather steering wheel with controls for infotainment, voice command and cruise control.
