Mahindra Scorpio BSVI: What has changed?
Mahindra and Mahindra has revealed the BSVI compliant version of its popular Mahindra Scorpio, online. The prices of the SUV haven't been revealed yet, possibly due to the ongoing lockdown, but other details are now known.
The biggest change with Mahindra Scorpio BSVI is unsurprisingly its engine. The 2.2-litre 120PS mHawk motor has been dropped now, only available now is the 142PS and 320 Nm version of this engine. The 75PS 2.5-litre diesel motor available in the base trims has been dropped too. There is no 4WD anymore, and transmission options are either a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed manual. The automatic version is no longer available.
The Scorpio's variant mix has also been rationalised further. The base S2, S3 and S4 are no longer available. The four variants now on offer are the S5, S7, S9 and S11 trim. The base S5 trim is only available with the 5-speed gearbox. The features list has remained more or less unchanged as well. Notable amenities are auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, a 7-inch infotainment screen with navigation, reversing camera, cruise control, TPMS, outer mirrors with indicators, and so on. Safety equipment is up to government mandated standards with the inclusion of dual front airbags, ABS, speed-sensing door locks, high-speed warning and an emergency call function built into the infotainment.
The Scorpio continues to be available with numerous seating options. The S5 version can be had in a 7 or 9-seater configuration, the S7 and S9 trims come in 7 and 7-seater options. The top S11 trim adds a 7-seater version with captain seats.
No changes have been made to the Scorpio's looks. The LED DRLs with projector headlamps, the LED tail lamps, chrome trim and rear spoiler continue as is.
While prices haven't been announced, we expect the BSVI version of the Scorpio to charge a Rs 45,000 to 50,000 premium over the equivalent BSIV versions. Prices of the Scorpio in its S5 trim was Rs 12 lakh, ex-showroom Mumbai.
