Over the years, the Scorpio has enjoyed immense popularity in the market. It has been a fantastic offering from the company, raking in big sales numbers and elevating the brand name. It is desired by all and loved for its reliability, dependability, and strong performance owing to the mHawk engine. It led its segment as far as engine performance goes and was the only proper 4WD SUV model in the segment.
“It is sophisticated yet tough, hi-tech yet robust, modern yet retaining the authentic DNA; hence the name Scorpio-N.”Veejay Nakra, President, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd
Keeping up with the massive success, the new Scorpio will take it up several notches. The new model is loaded with equipment to cater to the new-age rivals. To make it a true urban SUV, it is built from the ground up.

Other safety feature highlights include ABS, traction control, hill descent control, rear parking sensors, as well as front and rear cameras.

As for the interior, the SUV gets a flat-bottom steering wheel, brown and black upholstery, a front arm-rest with storage function, and adjustable headrests for all three rows. You can choose from six-seat (bucket seats with individual hand rests in the second row) and seven-seat (60:40 split) layouts.
It also comes with the 4XPLOR terrain mode (Normal, Snow, Mud, or Sand) that intelligently tailors traction for different terrains along with the most advanced Shift On Fly 4 Wheel Drive. It is also the world’s 1st SUV with Alexa-enabled ‘what3words’ that helps navigate to a precise location using a unique 3-word combination.
The new-gen SUV will be available with petrol and diesel engines, with the latter getting the 4-Wheel Drive system in some variants. Both the engines will get 6-speed manual and automatic transmission options, equipped with the ‘segment first’ shift-by-cable technology.
