Mahindra Scorpio facelift

With the 2018 facelift, Mahindra has tried to modernise the Scorpio and thus fend off increasing competition from more competent rivals. While the new design and more powerful engine option do manage to improve the SUV’s value of money image, it still feels slightly old and rudimentary. However, the Scorpio brand name and image in itself is more than enough to consider this SUV if you are in the market to buy a 7-seater rugged vehicle.
