The carmaker has confirmed the arrival of its all-new 2019 Mahindra Scorpio which will hit the dealerships with many upgrades. First of all, it is expected to be based on the new platform which will allow it to get an electric powertrain besides the traditional petrol and diesel engines. Furthermore, the exterior will be revised in order to look more handsome and competitive while the interior will be refreshed for a more premium look.
Engines and performances of the 2019 Mahindra Scorpio
When it comes to the powertrain, the 2019 Mahindra Scorpio should debut with several engines. And those will include diesel and petrol engines. However, according to the latest news, it will most likely get an electric powertrain at some point in future, but exact details are not yet available.
So, the latest rumors indicate that the new Mahindra will get three petrol and one diesel engine beneath the hood. The already familiar 1.2-liter and 2.2-liter petrol engines will definitively be among options. However, there will probably be a new 1.5-liter TGDI petrol engine as well. Furthermore, the manufacturer is also planning to introduce a new 1.5-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine which might be found on the new Scorpio as well.
On the other hand, we might also see a 2.2-liter 4-cylinder diesel which is able to develop 140 horses and 240 pound-feet of torque. This unit should work with a 6-speed manual gearbox and will come with two-wheel drive configuration. The larger 2.5-liter 4-cylinder could also be one of the options and will have the output of around 110 horsepower.
Design of exterior and interior
The 2019 Mahindra Scorpio is expected to ride on the new platform which will be developed in cooperation between SsangYong and Mahindra. And thanks to the new platform, the carmaker is hoping to improve global emissions and safety as well. Moreover, the new architecture will also allow it to get an electric powertrain alongside the petrol and diesel engines.
Design-wise, the new 2019 Mahindra Scorpio will most likely get some changes too. It is expected to feature a new design language which should make it look more attractive in crowded SUV market. So, this time, we anticipate changes of both front and rear fascias with a revised grille and new headlamps and lighting. The rear end should also get restyled taillights and bumper. And we might also see some new designs for the wheels as well.
As for the interior design, the new 2019 Mahindra Scorpio should be upgraded with better and more quality materials and perhaps some new color combinations. Furthermore, the new Scorpio should also feature more standard features and the latest optional equipment. Unfortunately, at the moment there isn’t any further information about its redesign. But we will know more after the carmaker releases the official details.
Release date and price
The carmaker still hasn’t confirmed when exactly the 2019 Mahindra Scorpio will go on sale. But it is expected to be during 2019. The price is also not known for now. And we assume that it could get slightly higher than the previous model.
