The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and the 2.2-litre diesel engine are taken from the Thar and the XUV700.
The petrol engine will produce 170 Ps of max power whereas the XUV700 produces 200 PS and Thar produces 150 Ps.
The diesel engine will be offered in two states of tune. The lower variants will get the same tune as the Thar. So, they will produce 130 PS whereas the higher variants will produce 160 PS. For reference, the XUV700’s diesel engine produces 155 PS in the lower variant and 185 Ps on the AX trim.
The design of the Scorpio N is an evolution of the current Scorpio which is a good thing. It means that the Scorpio N looks butch, SUV-ish and has a lot of road presence. The entire exterior has been redesigned but you can still see some of the elements of the Scorpio.
It gets the instrument cluster from the MX variant of the XUV700. There is dual-zone climate control, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, all LED lighting, electric sunroof, keyless entry, push-button to start/stop the engine and much more.
This time the Scorpio N will offer front-facing third-row seats. The current Scorpio comes with side-facing jump seats for the third row. The front-facing seats are simply safer. Because of this reason, Mahindra discontinued Thar’s lower variants that came with side-facing rear seats.
