Mahindra today announced the launch of the Scorpio Classic, a new avatar of its iconic brand Scorpio. Over 20 years, the Scorpio has attained legendary status and represented the tough and authentic DNA of Mahindra SUVs. To celebrate this monumental achievement of two decades, Mahindra has launched the Scorpio Classic, which retains the silhouette of the original and is offered now with refreshed looks, contemporary interiors, and a new powerful engine, among others.

Classic S: ₹11.99 L

Classic S11: ₹15.49 L

The Scorpio brand has evolved over time to address the customer needs and remains the popular choice amongst enthusiasts who look for a tough, powerful, and capable ‘authentic’ SUV. The Scorpio Classic will continue to demonstrate its traits of standout design, unmissable presence, and powerful performance.

The Scorpio Classic can be distinguished by its new bold grille along with a muscular bonnet with hood scoop and the new twin-peaks logo. The new DRLs with the signature Scorpio tower LED tail lamps and new R17 diamond-cut alloy wheels further add to the appeal of the original form.

Scorpio Classic boasts superior performance – powered by an all-aluminum lightweight GEN-2 mHawk engine, producing a whopping 97 kW (132 PS) of power and 300 Nm torque. A substantial 230 Nm of low-end torque is produced at only 1000 rpm. The engine is 55 kilos lighter and is 14 percent more fuel efficient than the engine that powered the previous model. This is the same first seen on the Thar. To further refine the driving experience, a new six-speed cable shift has been introduced in the manual transmission. Mahindra is not offering 4×4 or a petrol engine with it. The suspension set-up has been enhanced with MTV-CL technology to deliver superior ride and handling. Significant advancement has been made in the steering system for easy maneuverability and control.

The Scorpio has always stood out for its refined SUV interiors. The Scorpio Classic takes this to the next level with its new two-tone beige-and-black interior theme, classic wood pattern console and premium quilted upholstery. The vehicle also has a new 22.86 cm touchscreen infotainment system with phone mirroring and other modern functionalities.

Available in two variants – Classic S and Classic S 11 – the Scorpio Classic will continue to be sold alongside the All-New Scorpio-N which was launched in June this year. The Scorpio Classic will be available in five colours – Red Rage, Napoli Back, Dsat Silver, Pearl White and a newly introduced Galaxy Grey. The vehicle will be available across Mahindra dealerships for customers to explore and test drive starting today. The prices of the Scorpio Classic will be announced on August 20, 2022.

With just two variants on sale, Mahindra aims to please the customers who want the older one just for the novelty part. We do believe that it is time for most to jump to the Scorpio-N which is far better. However, with a revised engine and suspension, Scorpio Classic does make a lot of sense and it should stay put in the portfolio for a longer time and keep the enthusiasts happy.
