Rumour — Mahindra Scorpio Classic To Get Improved Suspension And New Features | V3Cars
After announcing prices for the all-new Scorpio N, Mahidra are gearing up to launch the existing Scorpio with a host of updates and a new name — the Scorpio Classic. The new Scorpio Classic will come with a couple of cosmetic and functional enhancements, including a retuned suspension.
Mahindra are likely to tweak the suspension of the new Scorpio Classic in an effort to offer a more stable and compliant ride. The outgoing model never had ride quality, comfort and handling in its favour but that could very much change with the upcoming Scorpio Classic.
In addition to that, it will get a new grille with Mahindra’s new twin peaks logo in the middle. The lower part of the bumper will also get revamped fog lamp housings and LED DRLs. At the side, it will get a new set of alloy wheels and side sills. At the rear, we can not judge the changes made to the tail lights thanks to the camouflage. We can, however, expect a new design for the tail lights and the new logo on the tailgate.

On the inside, the spy pictures reveal the same upright dashboard as before. Speaking of changes, the old steering wheel gets the new twin peaks logo. The Scorpio Classic will also get a bigger touchscreen infotainment system. However, it doesn’t seem like a branded unit. We also expect Mahindra to add a wireless phone charger and a couple of faux wooden inserts inside the cabin.
On the powertrain front, the new Scorpio Classic will come with the same 2.2L turbo diesel engine as the base variants of the Scorpio N. The 2.2L turbo diesel engine will produce 130PS of power and 300Nm of torque. Mahindra will offer the Scorpio Classic with only a 6-speed manual transmission and a rear-wheel-drive setup.

A leaked document suggests that Mahindra will offer the Scorpio Classic in 5 variants — S 7-seater, S 9-seater, S11 7-seater, S11 9-seater and S11 7-seater with captain chairs. The Scorpio Classic will sit below the Scorpio N. However, its S11 variants may clash with the low and mid variants of the Scorpio N.
