New 2009 Mahindra Scorpio

Well if anyone was wondering if Mahindra scorpio was going to be replaced by another SUV from Mahindra...Hold on! Mahindra and Mahindra have launched the latest edition of Scorpio and it is a beauty or what! Well actually it’s the classic case of beauty and the beast. It’s a mighty muscular beast which will crush anything that comes its way.
The all new Mahindra Scorpio comes in 4 variants - the base LX, the middle SLE and the top end VLX with manual transmission and optional Automatic. The ‘green’ concious among you can buy the VLX which comes with a BC-IV compliant engine already, a year before the norms will be implemented. The Scorpio in the process also becomes the first product in India to offer a BS-IV compliant version.
The front fascia is all new with new grille, bumper, bonnet scoop and new fog lamps. The sides feature new body cladding with embossed ‘Scorpio’. The rear is almost the same save for the new integrated footstep. The changes to insides have been subtle but they all contribute to make the Scorpio more comfortable and luxurious. The seats have been redesigned ergonomically after meticulous ‘body pressure mapping’ according to Mahindra speak but marketing jargon aside the new seats are actually a touch more comfortable than the current version and ‘hug’ you better while you are sitting on the perch. Other changes to the interiors include a new racing inspired gear lever which is easier to grip, an all new dual-din stereo aka Xylo with support for USB and SD Cards and two options for the interior upholstery - black allure and Tan and Beige combination.
Mahindra will also be debuting the micro hybrid technology with the new Scorpio. Mahindra’s radical Micro Hybrid technology allows the engine to intelligently switch into standby mode when not required, thus conserving fuel. A technological innovation developed by the Mahindra Research & Development team with the support of M/S BOSCH, the Micro Hybrid technology is based on the simple principle of not burning fuel when it is not required. It automatically detects moments, during the drive, when the vehicle is idle and switches off the engine. The engine starts seamlessly as soon as the driver depresses the clutch.
The vehicle, thus, burns less fuel, reducing pollution and conserving the environment. The system also monitors health of the battery, safety requirements, engine temperature, etc. for a trouble-free performance.
Micro Hybrid technology will now be available in the VLX and M2DI variants of the Scorpio.
"The Scorpio’s strong value proposition lies in its versatility, its ability to morph and mould itself according to the changing template of customer needs. The new Scorpio remains a true blue Mahindra vehicle at heart and with its macho, stylish looks and amazing go-anywhere capability it will further enhance our domination of the UV Market." said Dr. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive Sector, M&M Ltd.
"Mahindra’s ingenious approach to driving efficiencies and costs have enabled us to provide additional customer value upto Rs 70,000/- The new Scorpio has the ability to expand the market and to appeal to a new set of customers", said Mr. Rajesh Jejurikar, Chief of Operations, M&M Ltd.
"We are especially pleased to be the first company to launch a BS-IV compliant version in India, more than a year before it becomes mandatory. We are also delighted to introduce Mahindra’s revolutionary Hybrid technology on the Scorpio VLX with mHawk," said Mr. Rajan Wadhera, Chief of Engineering & Development, Automotive Sector, M&M
The new Scorpio range is available starting from 7.2 Lakhs for the LX going upto 9.2 Lakhs for the VLX version, all prices Ex-Showroom Delhi.
