The Scorpio N rides on 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels for the manual while the automatic gets small 17-inch units. The SUV has well sorted high-speed handling, cornering, and road manners claims Mahindra.

Though the seats lack modern bits like coloured stitching and quilted patterns, the presence of adjustable headrests on all the rows is a big thumbs up. The front seats have magazine holders at the back which, again, is a nice touch.

The captain seats get dedicated arm rests. The driver seat arm rest also doubles up as the housing for the rear AC vents which have been placed higher for better air throw. There’s a mobile charging port near the rear AC vents.

The steering has been updated and looks similar to that of the XUV700’s unit. The interior overall feels large and roomy sporting chrome and brushed silver finish at many places for a premium appeal. Mahindra claims that the Scorpio N has best-in-class command seating.

The car features dual-zone automatic climate control, again, for the first time. The system helps regulate temperature between the front and rear portion of the cabin using the front and rear AC vents.

The car, for the first time, gets tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) which will honk the car when the required pressure is reached. The system is so advanced that it even detects the position of the tires. If the tires are interchanged, the values gets automatically updated appropriately.

The Scorpio N can automatically close the sunroof and widows for the passengers in case the rain-sensing wipers run for more than 10 seconds. The SUV’s cruise control can be activated from as low as 20 km/hr which means the car can be used in a convoy too.

For the first time in its lifespan, the upcoming Scorpio N gets what 1 calls a driver drowsiness detection system which alerts when there’s no input from the driver for a prolonged period of time.

In case of a crash with airbags deflated, the Scorpio N can automatically call 108 for the passengers. Mahindra With You Hamesha team will also call for further support. The SUV gets dedicated SOS and RSA buttons for calling 108 and the Road Side Assistance respectively.

Offered in both 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions, the SUV features a part-time 4×4 system too 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 Scorpio’s onboard computer automatically activates or deactivates the 4×4 system.
