Mahindra Scorpio facelift to get new 6-speed automatic

7th Jun 2017 5:55 pm

The Scorpio's current auto'box has been discontinued for a new, more refined unit from Aisin.

We recently broke the news that Mahindra is readying a facelift of the Scorpio with a bump in power to 140hp (up by 20hp). It has now been confirmed that the facelift will be equipped with a more refined and responsive six-speed automatic gearbox from Japanese manufacturer Aisin Seiki.

Mahindra's XUV500 also uses an Aisin-made six-speed unit but is engineered for transverse engine applications, whereas the Scorpio uses a longitudinal engine layout.

The new unit will replace the now discontinued DSI-made gearbox that was introduced in 2015. Mahindra is also expected to carry forward the current Scorpio's five-speed manual gearbox to the facelift.
