    Mahindra recently unveiled the new Scorpio-N, which will be launched on June 27, but the manufacturer will continue to offer the older model alongside it as the Scorpio Classic. The Scorpio Classic will go on sale soon and will get cosmetic updates and trim-level changes.

    • Scorpio Classic to be sold in multiple variants
    • Will continue with the 2.2-litre diesel engine
    • Will be positioned at the lower-end of the segment

    Mahindra Scorpio Classic: expected variants

    Mahindra currently offers the existing Scorpio in five variants – S3+, S5, S7, S9 and S11, with prices ranging from Rs 13.54 lakh-18.62 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). With the upcoming Scorpio-N expected to be priced around the Rs 15 lakh-22 lakh mark, the upcoming Scorpio Classic would continue to hold its spot in the Rs 13 lakh-16 lakh range in Mahindra's SUV line-up.

    Dealer sources tell us that while the higher variants of the outgoing Scorpio will be put to rest, there will still be multiple trim levels on sale with varying equipment list. Higher variants of the Scorpio Classic are expected to come with equipment like alloy wheels, however, automatic gearbox would not be offered. Therefore, it's entirely plausible that some variants of the Scorpio Classic may overlap the new Scorpio-N in terms of pricing.

    As far as styling goes, the Scorpio Classic will have mild alterations to cosmetic bits on the outside, including the front bumper and grille, which will come with the new Mahindra logo. There will also be some updates to the side cladding on the doors.

    Mahindra Scorpio Classic: powertrain details

    The upcoming Scorpio-N is expected to get the new 200hp, 2.0-litre mStallion turbo-petrol and 180hp, 2.2-litre mHawk turbo diesel engines from the Thar and XUV700. Sources have confirmed that the Scorpio Classic will, hence, continue with the old 140hp, 2.0-litre, mHawk turbo diesel engine paired to a 6-speed manual transmission.
