With the success of the XUV500, Mahindra has not forgotten the Scorpio. The company has launched a basic variant of the Scorpio 4×4, known as the Scorpio LX, which features 4-wheel drive and is priced at Rs. 9.17 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Scorpio LX 4×4 is similar to the LX 4×2 on the outside, except it features 4×4 stickers on the vehicle and free wheeling hubs. On the inside, the Scorpio LX 4×4 features shift on the fly, 4-wheel drive lever, right next to the gear lever on the center console. The engine remains unchanged and is the same 2.2-liter, mHawk, CRDe motor which produces 120 BHP of power and 290 Nm of torque. Mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, the Scorpio 4×4 is 100 kgs heavier than the 4×2 version.

The Mahindra Scorpio LX 4×4 features digital immobilizer, tilt-steering, power steering, power windows, central locking, tubeless tyres, rear spoiler and roof rack. There is no ABS or airbags on the LX variant and the Scorpio LX 4×4 seems to be directly waiting for the Tata Safari Merlin’s arrival, with its aggressive pricing and go-most of the places ability. With most buyers preferring to opt for 4×2 versions of the Scorpio, the Scorpio 4×4 is just another model which might not attract as many buyers as the company would like.
