The Front hood and rear door seem to have bulges,which aren't there in the current version,and alloys are similar to XUV's,and look a size bigger,so 17 inchers coming up?

This looks like just a facelift , not the next gen Scorpio. It seems M&M is trying to fight the sales downfall with a fresh face to the legend, which is a good marketing strategy IMO.

This is a nice scoop. My only request to M&M at this point of time is, please change the rear tail lamps as well as get rid of those reflectors at the top of the lamps.

Don't see any major changes in the bodyshell, so could just be a facelift. Alloys are hidden too, maybe a new design on offer. What about the dashboard? What changes did you spot there?

I guess these bulges could be due to something stuck between the body and the cover - so as not to give away the 'actual' shape. Maybe a new design hood scoop!

Lets see when it actually hits the market.

Thanks for the scoop.

a. IF this is a minor facelift... Guess what they would be "Testing"

b. Alternatively, if they wanted to retain the shape of the current scorpio and did all the interior tweaks and engine tweaks.... Wild thinking.. Guess M&M can do that too..

MnM seems to have pushed the next generation Scorpio launch till end 2015 or early 2016. Mostly likely they will come up with this in test vehicle by end of this year with mostly cosmetic changes and some upgrades to the suspension.

We will have to wait and watch.

One major interior change in the new Scorpio will be In Dash navigation. Expected launch date is Q1 2014.

Front looks like a bit pushed forward like the new gen BMW. I hope the curve in the rear tail gate doesn't turn out to be like the mustache in the XUV

Looks like the footsteps are no longer integrated with the claddings as was the case with the current version! This one seems to be similar to how the footrests are on the LX variant.

The picture above may be of an LX variant itself. Looking at the Bulge i feel that the Wheel Arch Cladding will have a continuity with the Bumper Line (aka XUV 500) and a new Headlight and Fog Lamp orientation is also in the offing.
Overall a complete "Facelift" can be expected with a tweaked Number Plate housing and a revised Bonnet Nose (not very sure but looks like the XUV 500 straight line Bonnet will move over to Scorpio)

I dont think so, since this variant has alloys as well. Also, the outward bulge of the cladding can be seen on the body of the vehicle. Not to forget the body coloured ORVMs.

If its only a facelift, what could be the reason for testing?

For the outside changes, I dont think the dynamics will change that much that it'll require extensive testing. But, for the dash changes, it might require something like it should not start making noise or something like that, not sure.

Another thing that comes to mind for extensive testing is if they have tuned the suspension or slightly increased/tuned the engine output. Any other reason?

Looking at the shape of the headlight space, it looks more aggressive than the current Scorpio and in my opinion it seems much better.

The bumper seems to be flowing smoothly into the cladding and thats a good thing. Current Scorpio has too much of gap to be neglected.

The hood seems to start from the side. I mean, the top of the fender on the current Scorpio ends after the curve on the top and then the hood starts. From the pic, the top of the fender ends on the side itself and hood starts from there. The curve is part of the hood now.

The bulge on the back looks XUVish, I wish this is part of the camouflage.

The alloys have a new design but seem to be same size.

True. ..However the front mud flap is also missing which is part of the entrapment that provides the integrated look.
