Mahindra Scorpio Facelift Specifications
The Mahindra Scorpio will get a major update in the form of the 2.2-litre Diesel engine from the XUV500. This engine will churn out maximum power of 140 bhp and torque of 330 NM. Transmission duties will be taken care by a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic transmission system. Due to the additional power, the mileage might go down. We are expecting a claimed average mileage of around 17 kmpl. It is likely that the facelift might miss out on the Micro Hybrid system. This will lead to a significant drop in the prices. It should be noted that after the introduction of GST, hybrid cars were included in the highest tax slab. Cars like the Scorpio as well as the Maruti Ciaz, having a micro-hybrid system, saw a steep rise due to this.
