New Mahindra SUV (Z101) may get a different marketing name upon launch; fresh images show final exterior design.

Just a few days after Mahindra released a teaser video of the new-gen Scorpio, images of the SUV have surfaced online, revealing the full design. As reported earlier, the global debut of the new Scorpio could take place in the coming weeks, followed by price reveal and market launch. Mahindra is aiming to move more upmarket with the new Scorpio by mainly targeting SUVs like the Tata Safari and MG Hector.

New Mahindra Scorpio: what do the pictures reveal?

The teaser video that Mahindra released a few days back did give us a hint of what to expect from the new-gen Scorpio. However, pictures of what appears to be a higher-spec variant of the new Scorpio have surfaced online, giving us a complete idea of how the new SUV looks.

As can be seen from the images, the design of the new SUV is unmistakably Scorpio – which is to say that it retains the square-ish profile of the previous generations. Up front, the SUV features an upright nose, a tall grille with six chrome slats and a thick chrome strip running atop the grille and merging neatly into the headlamps. The new Mahindra logo takes the centre stage on the grille.

The stylish headlamps feature two light units with some chrome inserts. Below, the new Scorpio gets an elevated bumper with three separate enclosures, an air damp with honeycomb-patterned grille and a faux aluminium side plate. The front bumper also has  C-shaped housings for the fog lamps but the model in the picture looks like it is yet to be fitted with them. As visible in the teaser video, the fog lamps are surrounded by C-shaped LED daytime running lamps.

From the side, the new Scorpio features a single character line with a pronounced kink in the rear – a design detail also seen on the XUV700, and XUV300 compact SUV.

It also gets a large glasshouse with chrome outline, though the chrome treatment could only be reserved for higher variants. The new Scorpio also gets prominent black cladding on the wheel arches and door sills, enhancing its butch look. The wing mirrors are also large but they don’t seem to have a provision for a 360-degree camera.

The rear portion of the new Scorpio gets the vertically-mounted tail lamps and a side-opening tailgate. There are prominent creases on the hatch-lid which prevent the rear from looking too plain. The low rear bumper is cladded entirely in plastic, with some plastic cladding also present on the lower part of the hatch-lid. Do note that the reverse lamps and rear reflectors are placed on the bumpers, with a wrap-around chrome strip.

New Mahindra Scorpio: expected powertrain options

As reported by us earlier, the new Scorpio will come with both petrol and diesel options. While the engines will be shared with the XUV700, their power outputs are likely to be slightly lower. The diesel version is likely to come in two output options. A 6-speed manual will be standard while a 6-speed torque converter automatic will be available for both petrol and diesel. A 4X4 option will be offered on some variants of the new Scorpio.

New Mahindra Scorpio: global debut, launch

Mahindra is likely to debut the new Scorpio in the coming weeks followed by a price announcement. Expect more details of the new SUV to come in the coming days. The carmaker aims to go more premium with the new Scorpio, and it could be positioned close to the XUV700. The new Scorpio will be sold alongside the current-gen model, which is also due for a minor facelift.
