2022 Mahindra Scorpio Classic

Updated Design

The new Mahindra Scorpio Classic will get a number of cosmetic updates that will give it a fresh and more dominating look. For starters, the SUV now features a revised front grille that looks similar to what we get with the new Scorpio-N. This new front grille features chrome and black finish while the base variants only get a plain black iteration. Another highlighting change comes in the form of the new Mahindra logo. Subtle changes are also seen at the rear including a new logo.

Retuned Suspension Setup

From what we know so far, the new Mahindra Scorpio Classic will get a retuned suspension setup that will help in improving the driving dynamics of the Scorpio and will also greatly reduce the body roll that the OG Scorpio was infamous for. The new suspension setup will thus improve the driving experience and will make the Scorpio Classic more stable at higher speeds and under hard braking. No changes however will be made to the chassis and the basic underpinnings of the new Scorpio.
