Still fresh from debuting the automatic only Pik-Up S11 last month, Mahindra has updated its aging Scorpio with more power and better specification.
The last refresh before the introduction of an all-new model either later this year or next year, the now two-model Scorpio range remains aesthetically unchanged, but now boasts a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, voice control and satellite navigation that also serves as a display for the reverse camera, cruise control and rear parking sensors.
Still offering the option of rear or selectable four-wheel-drive, the Scorpio also retains the familiar 2.2-litre mHawk turbodiesel engine, which now produces 103kW/320Nm with the only transmission available being a six-speed manual. Ground clearance on both models is rated at 180 mm.
A four year/120 000 km warranty as well as a five year/90 000 km service plan is standard across the range.
