About The Scorpio
The Scorpio lineage
Scorpio started life in India in 2002 as robust solid and capable 4WD SUV. With various facelifts and updates over Twenty Years and with over 1 million units sold off the Scorpio / PikUp platform we are pleased to bring the World Class 3rd generation All-New Scorpio to Australian roads.
Mahindra Scorpio SUV proves its grit during 6-month Aussie testing program
Tested on four continents to a total of 1 million test kilometers, Mahindra went the extra mile to ensure that their Scorpio SUV was ready to tackle the toughest terrains in Australia by partnering with 4WD Industries, an independent company based in Hunter Valley. For six months, 4WD Industries put three Scorpio SUVs through their paces, pushing them to the limit across the vast and varied landscape of the country. The Scorpio SUVs were tested in extreme conditions, from driving 120,000 km in snow at altitude in the High Country to enduring searing heat in the Red Centre and navigating through busy inner-city streets. With the help of Mahindra seven engineers and 4WD Industries’ dedicated team of eight, daily data logs and reports were sent back to India to enhance the Scorpio’s performance in even the toughest Australian conditions.
The All-New Scorpio is engineered for those looking for a new-age authentic SUV. Built on our new third-generation body-on-frame platform, the Scorpio boasts of class-leading structural rigidity, off-road capability and exemplary on-road manners. The Scorpio is powered by a 2.2 litre diesel engine coupled with class-leading 6-speed automatic transmission system churning out 129 kW (175PS) power and 400 Nm torque.
‘Go Anywhere ‘capability
The All-New Scorpio is designed to rule all terrains with the 4XPLOR, first-in-class intelligent terrain management technology. With a mere touch, the electric shift-on-the-fly 4Wheel Drive System transforms the Scorpio from 2WD mode into an all-conquering, capable 4WD beast.
The Scorpio takes forward a commanding stance and strong presence on road. The signature wheel arches have been made even more muscular taking inspiration from the sinewy silhouette of a swimmer. A metallic Scorpio tail element is seamlessly integrated into the beltline, swinging all the way to the top of the window, giving the Scorpio more of a sting. The commanding nature of design effortlessly translates into the front as well. The Scorpio character is omnipresent as the tall, stacked taillamp design creates a commanding stand on the rear, as in the front. The All-New Scorpio will be offered in 5 body colour options: Deep Forest, Napoli Black, Everest White, Red Rage, and Dazzling Silver. At 4.662 metres long and 1.917 metres wide, the combined 8.93m2 places the All-New Scorpio firmly in the Large SUV <$70K Body On Frame category as defined by FCAI for 2023.
Premium crafted interiors
The All-New Scorpio is absolutely captivating on the inside, as on the outside. Scorpio offers top notch craftmanship – rich coffee-black leatherette upholstery, best-in-class command seating position, center console encased in robust metal finished dual rails, advanced infotainment system and more, taking the premium-ness to the next level. The interiors of the Scorpio are designed to offer a highly sophisticated sensation, delighting the driver and passengers alike.
Sophisticated ride and handling
The All-New Scorpio uses the most sophisticated technologies available to offer benchmark driving dynamics. The latest generation body-on-frame structure has been optimised to offer remarkable levels of dynamic competencies and assured handling capabilities. Additionally, the penta-link rear suspension features watts link mechanism to offer confident ride and handling attributes. The first-in-segment Frequency Dependent Damping (FDD) technology, in combination with the Scorpio’s advanced shock absorbers featuring MTV-CL technology, is devised to offer a smooth, comfortable ride experience. The steering setup is remarkably smooth and responsive for a vehicle in its category, and All Four Disc brakes ensure exhilarating yet safe drive.
The All-New Scorpio is the first model for Mahindra in Australia that introduces an all-new factory backed 7 year / 150,000 km warranty for Private Buyers.* Terms & Conditions apply, please see www.mahindra.com.au/ownership for more details.
