There will be the Nissan Kicks SUV and the Renault Kaptur also that will be competing with the new Mahindra Scorpio. A seven seater version of the Duster is also in the making.
New Mahindra Scorpio 2017 Engine…
Mahindra could get the Scorpio with the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine with this model launch mostly. There is also a 2.2-litre petrol engine that is also being readied for a launch. The Mahindra Scorpio will come with a six-speed automatic as well on the diesel engine. The Intelli-hybrid system will be an advanced version of micro Hybrid. What happens in this is that the electrical appliances will keep on running even when the engine is off when in traffic. The battery size will be bigger and there will even be regenerative braking also. With this, it will get the excise benefit that the Ciaz and Ertiga SHVS are enjoying. Thus making the Scorpio more affordable and with about 10-15% better mileage too.
The diesel engine will produce the same 120bhp of power and it will come with a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic box. A new AISIN automatic transmission will also be coming on the updated version of the Scorpio. The petrol on the other hand will churn about 156bhp of power. Expect the micro-hybrid technology to see some more advancement and helpful in better fuel economy.
