The homegrown carmaker is steadily progressing by upgrading its existing models to BS-VI standards. The BS-VI Scorpio is sold in 4 variants- S5, S7, S9, and S11 thus discontinuing the S3 variant from its line up. Currently, the Scorpio S5 BS-IV counterpart is sold at a price of Rs14.87 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi) so we can expect a price hike up to Rs.1 lakh for the BS-VI counterpart.

In terms of mechanics, BS-VI Scorpio is offered with only one engine option- mHawk 2.2L Diesel engine good enough for 140PS power and 320Nm of peak torque discarding the 2.5L and 2.2L diesel engines. The mHawk 2.2L diesel engine is mated to 5-speed manual gearbox in the base variant S5. However, the S7, S9 and S11 variants are equipped with 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. Sources reveal that the Scorpio is most likely to miss out on automatic transmission and four-wheel drive options.

Going through the features, the BS-VI Scorpio features auto headlamps with LED DRLs, rear parking camera, automatic climate control, 7-inch touch screen infotainment system compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and cruise control just like the BS-IV counterpart. It gets the same 7, 8 and 9 seating configurations. Safety features include dual front airbags, ABS, high-speed alert, rear parking sensor and front seatbelt reminder as standard.

The exclusive features of BS-VI Scorpio include reverse parking sensor with dynamic assist, plush leather interiors, dual-tone dashboard, new imposing front grille, a new set of alloy wheels, sleek LED tail lamp, GPS in 10 languages, steering mounted controls, voice assist system, leather-wrapped steering wheels, and gear knob, electrically operated ORVMs, rear AC vents and emergency call (E-call). It comes with four attractive colors like Pearl white, Dsat Silver, and Napoli black and molten red.

Meanwhile, in view of the Coronavirus outbreak, the production of BS-VI Scorpio has come to a halt. We can expect an official announcement from Mahindra about the launch date and pricing anytime soon. Besides, 2021 is going to be a busy year for Mahindra with the launch of Next-gen XUV500, Thar and Scorpio. Stay tuned for further updates.
