The launch of the 2023 Mahindra Scorpio to take place on 27th June, likely to get 5-star Global NCAP rating
Mahindra is all set for a grand event next month as it has fixed 27th June as the launch date for its much-hyped 2023 Scorpio SUV reportedly called Scorpio-N. Prepared to take on the D-segment, the upcoming Scorpio, as per Mahindra, has some great aspects to boast about.
Interestingly, 20th June was the date on which the first generation Scorpio was launched back in 2002. On the said date, this year, Mahindra will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the bread and butter car.
Select dealerships have already commenced the unofficial bookings for the SUV ahead of its launch. Booking amount could be around Rs. 50,000/-.
In its latest teaser, the UV maker had put up a statement saying, “The new Mahindra SUV makes even the crash dummy feel safe,” with 94 percent of the respondents ticking ‘Yes’. This means Mahindra is ready for Global NCAP to take the SUV for a crash test.
As far as India is concerned, the UV maker’s Ssangyong Tivoli inspired XUV 300 has not just bagged a 5-star Global NCAP rating but also got more points than its other 5 star mates like the Tata Nexon and Tata Altroz. So, it must be seen how the upcoming Scorpio fares.
Mahindra has loaded the 7-seater with many features that were never-seen-before on the popular SUV. For starters, as per latest scoops, the brand has turned its focus more on the 4-wheel drive system.
For the first time, select petrol engine variants of the Scorpio are going to get the 4-wheel drive system from the Thar.
The SUV will reportedly come powered by a 2-litre turbo petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel engine with both manual and automatic transmission options. The diesel engine, might get 2 states of tune with the lowered powered 1 finding its place on the base variants.
The petrol engine might be the mStallion 150 TGDi unit that puts out 150 HP at 5000 RPM and 300 Nm between 1250-3000 RPM. The diesel engine might be the tried and tested mHawk 130 that exerts 130 HP at 3750 RPM and 300 Nm between 1600-2800 RPM.
