Dr. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive Sector, M&M Ltd., said the all new the Scorpio will help M&M maintain its position as the market leader. "The Scorpio was the first vehicle in its class to be built indigenously; it was the first Indian brand to offer cutting edge CRDe technology. With the All New Scorpio now we are introducing a host of features in terms of passenger comfort, styling and convenience, some of which are the first in their respective categories. These pioneering efforts speak of our technology maturity and our consistent drive to deliver an enduring automotive experience. We are pleased to announce the further significant refinements in our highly successful model. We will continue to strive to offer customer-centric improvements in all our endeavours."

Mahindra & Mahindra is offering the new Scorpio at no extra price for a limited period. The decision to retain the pricing as an introductory offer in spite of the 43 exciting new features is in line with the company's customer-centric tradition.

The vehicle now rides on a five-zone rear suspension fine-tuned by Lotus Engineering. This feature coupled with tubeless tyres, which is also a standard across all models, is designed to give the customer unmatched ride comfort and handling.

The all-new Scorpio has more aggressive styling cues with the familiar macho front grille and large clear lens headlamps now complimented by a sporty new scoop on the bonnet and a specially designed front bumper with air dams. The all-new tail lamp runs all the way to the top. The rear spoiler with integrated brake light is a standard feature across all models. The Scorpio's side profile is now distinguished by newly designed footsteps, which are integrated with the body. Ski racks also add to the style statement.

The interior of the All New Scorpio boasts of a world of convenience and comfort, beginning with a new style IP and console, new trims and lots of utility spaces. It scores high on ergonomics with the sliding middle row facility. A first in its category, this option allows the passenger flexible legroom space. The revamped dashboard and central console gives a more contemporary and premium feel providing the front occupants added control of the environs inside. The instrument cluster has a more contemporary look with all controls designed with ease of access and operation. A special joystick control for the AC-vents is an added feature.
