Mahindra Scorpio is in the market for more than fifteen years and in this time it has built a reputation of being hardy, reliable and a powerful performer. This has made this car so popular, even today (after many facelifts) and is giving a tough competition to its main rivals in the market.
Mahindra Scorpio is a strong SUV, which is quite evident from its muscular design. A massive engine grill and an anodised air dam dominate the front profile of this car. The beautifully crafted headlamp cluster with cornering lights and redesigned fog lamp completes the front look of this car. From the side, you will find that the car is slightly on the taller side (which is excellent for headspace for the riders) and runs on beautifully crafted 17 inches alloy wheels. The back profile of the car is distinguished by a thick chrome plate, which acts as an opener for the back door and a redesigned tail lamp cluster that looks like the alphabet B.
The interior of Mahindra Scorpio is furnished with high-quality leather that contrasts well with the dual tone colour that the designers have put in to give it an upmarket look. The steering wheel is compact and covered with leather and you will find a big infotainment screen right in the middle of the dashboard that gives you control over the various functions of your car. When you sit in any of the seats you will find that you have plenty of legroom (even if you are 6 plus). At the front, you will find that the dashboard and the instrument cluster are intelligently designed with a lot of chrome inserts and high-quality plastic, which gives it a premium feel.
