Autocar India reports, in an interesting development, that Mahindra is likely to continue selling existing Scorpio (which will soon receive a mild facelift) along with the new model. This is done to retain side-facing rear seats that still hold demand in certain consumer segment. Placing side-facing seats on last row won't be feasible in the new model due to negative impact on crash tests. Thus, new model will have a different moniker as well (link).
teaser looks good but why are they saying it will compete with the D segment ? will this sit above the xuv700 ? my cousin bought the xuv700 recently and the advisor told him that the current generation scorpio won't be phased out but will sell alongside this new big daddy SUV.
In the last pic where rear is shown you can see some letters are embossed on black part above bumper. Looks like name “SCORPIO” like current Generation has on side Fybre is mentioned. Adding zoom screen shot of rear with arrow marks. Count the letters and its 7.
