Rumour: Next-gen Mahindra Scorpio Petrol to get 4x4 option

The next-generation Mahindra Scorpio is likely to borrow the 2.0-litre mStallion turbo-petrol engine from the XUV700 and Thar.

Mahindra has kicked off its teaser campaign for the next-generation Scorpio as it prepares for the launch. The SUV is expected to be offered with petrol and diesel engine options and as per the latest reports, 4x4 will be available with both powertrains.

Besides the 2.2-litre diesel engine, the Scorpio is also likely to borrow the 2.0-litre mStallion turbo-petrol engine from the XUV700 and Thar. This engine develops 197 BHP and 380 Nm. Both engines will be offered with a 6-speed manual transmission, while a 6-speed automatic is an option.

We recently got our first look at the new Scorpio thanks to a set of leaked images. The SUV will be larger than the outgoing model and features a completely new design. It gets a new radiator grille with twin-pod headlamps on either side and tail lamp clusters inspired by Volvos. The Scorpio retains the side-hinged tailgate.

The next-generation Mahindra Scorpio is expected to be launched in June 2022.
