Older logo seen on the front grille could mean that this might be a pre-production model.

Mahindra has been teasing its upcoming SUV for the last couple of weeks, as it inches closer to launch. Codenamed Z101, Mahindra hasn’t officially confirmed the SUV to be the new Mahindra Scorpio, but the SUV is an evolution of the outgoing Scorpio and latest spy shots reveal a lot about the design of what Mahindra is teasing as the ‘Big Daddy of SUVs’.

The SUV has generous amounts of chrome inserts all over the body.

While the teaser video showcased the new Scorpio wearing the company’s brand new logo which made its debut on the XUV700, the latest spy shots show the car with the older logo, indicating that this could indeed be a pre-production model and not the finished product. As seen in the teaser video, the car features LED twin-pod projector headlamps, LED fog lights, and a signature Mahindra front grille with vertical chrome inserts. There’s generous amount of chrome used along the sides of the SUV too, with the door handles bearing chrome inserts and the door cladding having chrome too. The SUV also features 10-spoke Alloy wheels, and disc-brakes on all 4 corners.

The new-gen Scorpio has redesigned LED taillamps.

The rear of the car features similar chrome treatment, with the door handle and bumper getting chrome inserts. There’s also an additional chrome element running the width of the diffuser, and at the chin of the tailgate. The SUV also sports new LED taillight units, which bear a similar silhouette as the last-gen Scorpio’s units, but come with a significant change in the design.

The SUV will also feature a premium and tech loaded interior with the possibility of level 2 ADAS features, which would be a first in its class. It will arrive with 2 engine options, a 2.0-litre mStallion turbo-petrol engine that will develop 150 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque, and a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine which will produce 130 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The engines will be mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, and the SUV is expected to come with mild-hybrid tech to boost fuel efficiency.
