Available in a host of variants, the new Mahindra Scorpio-N is available in two-wheel-drive and 4X4 options and is built on a new platform. The new ladder-frame chassis the Scorpio is built on is safer and offers better handling compared to the older Scorpio, which is also on sale called the Mahindra Scorpio Classic.
Powering the new Mahindra Scorpio-N is either a 2.0-litre petrol engine that makes 200 bhp and 380 Nm of torque, or a 2.2-litre diesel mill that makes 130 bhp or 172 bhp depending on the variant. Gearbox choices include a manual or an automatic, again, depending on the trim level. The new Scorpio-N has also retained its ability to go anywhere with its part-time four-wheel-drive system.

Interior features of the new Mahindra Scorpio-N include a dual-tone dash, well-bolstered seats, a digital instrument cluster, electric sunroof, wireless charging, powered seats, 6 airbags, ESC, drowsiness detection, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat anchors, and more.
The 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N competes with the Tata Safari, Harrier, MG Hector, and even the Jeep Compass to an extent, as 4X4 SUVs in this segment are becoming extinct.
