Friends,

Mahindra is understood to be working on a facelift of the Scorpio, as test mules of the SUV were recently spotted in Karnataka.

This will be the first update for the Scorpio since the launch of the second-gen model in 2014. The test mule spied wore camouflage across the nose, front fenders and the tailgate which indicate a revised front fascia and tweaks to the rear.

Even the power output is expected to go up by 20bhp. The final power output would be 140bhp mated to XUV 500 6 speed transmission.

I am not agree with this. Yes looks of a vehicle is depends upon personal choice but current generation looks much better than previous one. At the same time the grill Mahindra is testing with upcoming SCORPIO is worst looking till date but I guess Mahindra will do something for that!

Very First SCORPIO was head turner because people in India never seen such attempt from Mahindra Or we can say Indian company to give such good looking vehicle. TML Safari was there but it was Rich man's vehicle where Bolero was too much simple vehicle. SCORPIO changed it all so fan following of SCORPIO is very high.

Friends,

I am no photoshop expert, but I feel instead of using the Imperio Grill, M&M should keep it rather simple and do away with those fangs. I feel the simple the front, the better it shall look. A simple chrome slate or a smoked gray slate will look decent on it.

Yup a simple mesh type grille is far better for the facelift than the hideous imperio grille !
But I like the fog lamp garnish on the front bumper for this render , super cool whether it's fog lamp or drl it looks good & rangerover inspired , hope it's the official design .

Yes, that Imperio Grill is eyesore on SCORPIO's SUV design. Hope Mahindra is doing simple testing for 140HP engine with dummy grill of Imperio, just like New Generation SCORPIO spied with Xylo bumper & Bolero's grill.

Exclusive! New Mahindra Scorpio Spotted Testing

Hello TAIans. Sorry for late post. Few days back when I was returning from office, I saw Scorpio half camouflaged being tested on the roads of Nashik City. Mahindra's plant lies in Nashik itself. Do anyone have an idea what the company is about to launch? Hope the pictures help you. Sorry for poor picture quality. [:D]

Re: Exclusive! New Mahindra Scorpio Spotted Testing

Not Much of a difference than a mere face-lift and back-lift as it seems in the spy pics, many auto websites says the engine in the face-lift version will now make 150bhp which makes the monster more meaner.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio Facelift 2017 in Works

It's a mid cycle facelift as the all new Scorpio is in development and bound be launched by 2020-2021. The good news is that its gonna get the Aisin sourced 6-speed AT from XUV 500. This AT coupled with 4wd would be a good combination. Hope they resolve some of the short comings with the ergonomics ie., no bottle holder on the door panel and accessing the door panel when the doors are closed is next to impossible.
