The Mahindra Scorpio facelift will be launched today and its prices are likely to remain more or less the same since it's a mid-cycle update. For 2018 the Mahindra Scorpio gets cosmetic changes, but the bigger changes are its more powerful engine and new six-speed gearbox. The S5 and S7 variants are offered with a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder mHawk diesel engine producing 120 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 280 Nm @ 1,800-2,800 rpm. The new, facelift variant of the four-wheeler gets several exterior changes that are easily identifiable.

The all new Scorpio will be available in 4 variants S3, S5, S7 and S11. Both motors are mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Mahindra has not introduced the automatic option yet in the new Scorpio but it is being speculated that the company may introduce the AMT variant of the new Scorpio later.

The 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine will come tuned to produce two different powers.

It also features a new set of ORVMs with integrated turn signals and rides on 17-inch, 5-spoke alloy wheels finished in silver.

As per the spy shots, it gets a new Jeep-inspired grille with seven slats and subtly redesigned front bumper.

Also the old mHawk engine running the higher variants of the 2017 Mahindra Scorpio facelift has been tweaked to deliver 140 bhp max power, instead of 120 bhp, and 320 Nm, in a first for one of the most popular SUV line-ups in India.
