I also heard they are moving XUV powertrain to Scorpio.
140HP, 6 Speed auto.

XUV will be upgraded to 170 HP with DSG probably.
Yes me too seen same NEWS of Facelift SCORPIO is coming with upgraded powertrain maybe engine from XUV5OO (140Bhp) & XUV5OO will be upgraded to 175-180 bhp.

Maybe its because of TUV5OO is coming with 2.2Ltr mHAWK engine from SCORPIO so mahindra don't want both vehicles to have same Bhp figures. I am in curiosity to see what engine Mahindra will use in upcoming MPV U321?

And think of New Generation Rexton G4 coming to India with Mahindra badging instead of Ssangyong badging & name might be XUV7OO. What engine Mahindra will put in that vehicle? [confused]

Nothing is said about MPV U321. Maybe they can use old Scorpio 2.2 120HP parts for it. And retune it for more efficiency. Shall be enough. Anyways, Only difference between Current Scorp and XUV engine is XUV has VGT turbo with far aggressive settings in ECU. Blocks/Piston are the same.

If Mahindra has really heard Enthusiasts, India REALLY needs a 210~220 BHP engine with twin turbos. Infact, When XUV was just known as W201 Codename, I heard rumors that engine would be something like 210 HP with twin turbo and Toruqe of over 550 NM!

BTW on a sidetrack, It would be interesting what changes they did under the hood, and folks like me will line up at Petes to convert their 140HP XUV to 180 HP! LOL! I have heard current XUV can be easily tuned to 170HP with just a remap, while a larger turbo will give 200 HP! That will show a candle to ML350.

I am not so knowledgeable person in this Torque & Bhp segment. But one thing comes in my mind that if current generation XUV5OO with 140bhp already too much powerful, I can't think of what will be 170bhp powered XUV5OO's power delivery. [surprise]

But worst thing which I think is 170bhp engine will hit mileage very badly.[frustration]

with idiots on the road even 100 HP is more to control.
BTW about the fe. all 2.5 tonne SUVs are in the range of 9-11 kmpl. (fortuner, Safari, endy )
xuv is slightly more efficient at 13 Kmpl. I don't mind a slight drop in fe for added Power. one of the best things to do would be to add driving modes like in hexa.

eco, comfort and sport mode settings with 120, 140 and 170 HP resp.

:offtopic: Yes there are idiots everywhere running with their vehicle on the road [frustration]. Month back my family met with an accident because of one mindless Rick driver, Thank god they are safe but our swift damaged badly due to that accident. [anger]

Coming to the Topic, 13Kmpl average is the USP for XUV5OO, and yes many people won't mind 1-2kmpl less mileage than current one but India is a country who first ask "Kitana deti hai?" while buying a vehicle so less average definitely gonna hit XUV5OO's good sales record.

But Mahindra can add that Eco, Comfort & Sport mode setting to tackle with this mileage issue. Lets see what will be offering from Mahindra with upcoming Facelift XUV5OO.

Mahindra SCORPIO got good sales of 6260 in last month compared to 4386 of Aug 17.

Kudos to Mahindra SCORPIO. Another update is coming soon with more features so we can see more growth in SCORPIO's sales. [clap]

2019 Mahindra Scorpio S3 with ABS: Walk around video review of most affordable Scorpio [Video]

scorpio.jpg


The Mahindra Scorpio is one of the most popular and best-selling SUVs in the Indian market. Launched way back in 2002 for the first time, it has maintained its market lead ever since and has been a strong seller due to its tough ladder on frame construction, powerful engine options and value for money factor. It is equally popular in semi-urban and rural regions as it is in urban areas, which is a feat not many vehicles can achieve. The video below by Motervalue showcases the S3 variant of the latest 2019 model of the Scorpio, which is the most affordable variant of the Scorpio you can buy.
