Mahindra Scorpio is due for a replacement soon, and its next-generation model has been spotted multiple times during road tests. The next-generation Scorpio will share its underpinnings with the second-generation Thar, and will also feature major updates to both the exterior and interior design. Apart from that, the new-gen Scorpio will offer plenty of new features and equipment as well.
Thanks to plenty of spy shots, it has been revealed that the next-gen Scorpio will get projector headlamps, LED taillights, a sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, disc brakes on all four wheels, functional roof rails, a roof-mounted rear spoiler (with integrated high-mount stop lamp), and C-shaped LED DRLs. Apart from that, the SUV is also expected to grow in dimensions, which should liberate a little more interior space.

Transmission choices will the same as well – a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The next-generation Scorpio is expected to launch in the Indian market around mid-2021.
