The 4×4 system of Mahindra Scorpio N is an automatic part-time unit with switchable 4H and 4L transfer cases
As we are inching closer towards the launch of the all new Mahindra Scorpio N on 27th June, more details of the SUV continue to pour in and the latest information now is about its 4×4 system and capabilities.
The Scorpio N will get a part-time 4×4 system in which the power is sent to all 4 wheels only when the condition needed it. Based on the level of traction on the surface, the SUV’s onboard computer automatically activates or deactivates the 4×4 system.
But, drivers do have some control over the system. The Scorpio has 2 transfer cases – 4H and 4L and drivers can manually toggle between the 2 via dedicated buttons. There’s also dedicated differential lock.
In addition, the car has 4Xplore modes beside the gear lever – Rough Road, Snow, Mud, and Water, which can be toggled via a rotary knob. On regular roads, the SUV automatically switches to rear wheel drive.
There will be 28 variants on offer across transmissions, engines, and features. The variant nomenclature will also be different from that of the existing Scorpio. Interestingly, the 4×4 option will also be offered on certain mid-level manual and automatic variants.
Further, some more details have been revealed. The second row seats will fold and tumble but not slide. The 6-seater variants will come with 2+2+2 seating option while the 7-seater model will get 2+2+3 layout.
Driver seat gets adjustable lumbar support while second row passengers get height-adjustable seat belts. But, there’s only 1 centrally-mounted LED cabin lamp for second row.
The third row passengers get individual LED map lights above the fixed grab handles, and speakers on the D-pillars. The Scorpio N will make to do with manual hand brake and IRVM across the range. The SUV gets a central hump on the second row footwell.
