As you can make out from the table above, Mahindra has discontinued the base variant of the Scorpio. The top-spec AWD and the S7 (120PS version of the 2.2-litre engine) variants have been discontinued as well. The S5 is the new base variant and its price has been hiked by Rs 20,000. The other variants have seen a more steep price hike of Rs 60,000. The Scorpio continues to be offered with the same set of features, notably auto headlamps with LED DRLs, a rear parking camera, auto climate control, and cruise control.
The engine underneath the bonnet remains the 2.2-litre diesel motor that puts out 140PS and 320Nm of torque. The transmission remains a 6-speed manual, with no automatic expected to make it to the variant list. The new base variant (S5) is offered with a 5-speed transmission only. The 2.5-litre engine which was previously offered in the base variant (S3) has also been discontinued.
It will continue to compete with the likes of the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta, as well as the Tata Harrier and MG Hector to an extent.
