    Mahindra is set to add another variant of the Scorpio Classic. This variant is likely to be called the Classic S5 and will sit between the Classic S and Classic S11 trims. This new variant has been introduced because the higher-spec Classic S11 does not sell as much since it's priced closer to the Scorpio N

    1. Scorpio Classic S5 to get three seating configurations
    2. Will get the same 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine
    3. Expected to be priced around Rs 14 lakh (ex-showroom)

    Mahindra Scorpio Classic S5: what will it get?

    The Scorpio Classic S5 will be offered with three seating configurations – a 7-seater with bench, a 7-seater with captain’s chairs and a 9-seater with bench. The other variants currently get a choice of only two from the three options, depending on the variant. However, as per our sources, that is likely to change as the Classic S11 will now get a 9-seat configuration as well.

    Mahindra Scorpio Classic S5: powertrain

    The Classic S5 will get the same Gen 2 mHawk, 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine producing 132hp and 300Nm of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and sends power to the rear wheels. The Scorpio Classic does not offer an automatic gearbox or 4x4 option that was available on the previous-gen model. 

    Mahindra Scorpio Classic S5: expected price, waiting period

    Currently, the Mahindra Scorpio Classic is priced between Rs 12.64 lakh-Rs 16.14 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Expect the new Classic S5 variant to be priced around Rs 14 lakh, as it sits between the Classic S and Classic S11. The existing models command an average waiting period of around 5-6 months.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
