The chassis is brand new and is built using a hydroforming procedure, which makes it a lot stiffer than before. The five-speed manual gearbox is new and claims to improve shifts. These changes along with the suspension setup that has also has been tweaked, should offer better ride and handling than before.

The face of the new Scorpio gets a slightly redesigned bumper, an updated grille and newly-designed projector headlamps with LED daytime-running lights. The rear gets subtle changes to the bumper, LED tail-lights and a roof-mounted spoiler. Also new are the foglamps, scuff-plates and 17-inch alloys.

Changes on the inside include a power-window button on respective doors, horizontal AC vents, new instrument cluster, climate control and a new touchscreen infotainment system. The new steering wheel, taken from the XUV 500, comes with controls mounted on it. There are airbags and ABS too. The new Scorpio also offers seating configurations ranging from seven- to nine-seater options as per the trims.

The 2.2-litre mHAWK and 2.5-litre m2DiCr diesel engines have been carried over from the old car, but the nomenclature of the trims have been changed to S2, S4, S6, S8 and S10. The S4 and S10 trims are available in 4x4 versions
