New Delhi: Mahindra on Thursday, May 12, released its teaser video for its next-generation Scorpio (codenamed the Z101) that revealed more about its features. The new Scorpio, which is likely to make its debut this June, has been dubbed as the big daddy of SUV.
As per the new video, the new Scorpio – XUV700 – will be launched with a brand new logo.
Prices likely to start from ₹10 lakh onwards. It’ll be a rugged alternative to the likes of the the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, VW Taigun, and MG Astor.
Check new features:
New features will include roof-mounted speakers, connected car tech, dual-zone climate control, a wireless phone charger, and a single-pane sunroof. Other highlights should include multiple airbags, a 360–degree camera, keyless entry with push-button start, cruise control, auto headlights and wipers, as well as electronic stability control.
Earlier cabin spy shots reveal a minimalistic dashboard in black/brown. While the new Scorpio is slated to be offered in either 6- or 7-seater options, the boot space seems good enough only for a couple of soft bags with all the three rows in place.
Powering the new Scorpio will be the 2-litre turbo-petrol and 2.2-litre diesel engines in a different state of tune than the XUV700 and Thar. A 6-speed manual should be standard, with the choice of an automatic transmission as well. Rear-wheel and all-wheel drive (with low range) guises should also be on offer.
