The Mahindra Scorpio facelift has been spied several times and once again the upcoming SUV has been spotted in India by motoroctane.com. The spied 2017 Mahindra Scorpio is partially camouflaged at the front but reveals the exterior. The Mahindra Scorpio will get cosmetic updates but it is expected to be powered by the same engine options that power the existing model. The overall design of the Scorpio facelift will also largely remain similar to the present model.

The company is likely to equip the car with a redesigned front grille with chrome finish, revised headlamps along with front bumper that will get horizontally positioned air vents. The rear of the Mahindra Scorpio facelift will get revised tail lamps and bumper along with new 16-inch alloy wheels. The cabin of the upcoming Mahindra Scorpio, on the other hand, is expected to feature new seat upholstery and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will be compatible with Android Auto, similar to the Mahindra XUV500. The third row is also expected to get jump seats.

Powering the 2017 Mahindra Scorpio facelift is likely to be the same 2.2 litre mHawk diesel engine. The mHawk unit produces 120 hp of maximum power and 280 Nm of peak torque. The car manufacturer might also introduce a new 6-speed automatic gearbox. The standard transmission option will include a 5-speed manual gearbox. It is also expected that Mahindra could equip the SUV with a new Aisin-sourced torque converter automatic unit that also does duty on the XUV500. The carmaker will also launch 2017 Mahindra Scorpio with the 2.5 litre m2DICR turbocharged unit that develops 75 hp of power and 200 Nm of torque. The power will be sent to the two-wheel drive or the four-wheel drive system, depending on the variant level.
