The Scorpio is a common full-size SUV on Indian roads. It is
the go-to car for a full sized family, for an office carpool or
even for the red-light VIPs. But with the Indian automakers
looking to consolidate and expand in the Australian and the
Malaysian markets and further on, 2017 Mahindra Scorpio will be
their next step.
2017 Mahindra Scorpio – Exterior Expectations and
Luxurious Interior Design
Turning Radius- 4m
Ride Height- 1930mm
Details or specifics of upgrades which Mahindra might integrate
into the new model are unknown. However, design changes are
expected given the companies rejig into the engaging exteriors
of its XUV 500. The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio is associated with
aggression and power, and they would aim at capitalizing upon
the aspect to gain further solidarity in the market.
It is in this sector that Indian manufacturers automobiles lag.
And although they provide high affordability on all other
aspects of a vehicle, interiors are not up to class. However,
Mahindra has shown some interest in improving in this segment
and they might as well be solving common complaints of a lack
of luxury and in-cabin build quality. The 2017 Mahindra Scorpio
might be provided with upgraded upscale plastic and leather
upholstery and a classier dashboard.
Infotainment and tech add-ons will also have rumored
improvements ahead of the re-release with the inclusion of rear
parking cameras and an updated infotainment system. A 6” LCD
touch interface may well be added to the introductory model.
Default infotainment options of Bluetooth, USB, and AUX along
with climate control and adjustable seats will be obviously
present. 3 rows of seats will be incorporated with the previous
split ratio while luggage or boot space will serve as usual
garner accolades as with the previous models.

regenerative braking and a larger battery pack enhancing city

2017 Scorpio will be built on the loyal customer base it has
already achieved throughout its last three generations.

previously used in its XUV500 model will be incorporated into
