I have a look on the outer periphery of the Scorpio, the thing which will be noticed in a glimpse is the new seven-slot grille. It gives the resemblance of Jeep’s grille design-specifically of the Compass. Other than this, at the front end, the SUV gets a restyled new bumper and larger fog lamps with chrome accents around them. There is also a skid plate beneath the new upper and lower grille.

At the side front, you will get the outside rear view mirrors (OVRMs) turn indicators and new 17-inch alloy wheels. Whereas on the earlier model the turn indicators were placed on the side grille. Moreover, the alterations have also been made in the air extractors of the last set of side windows.

On the back side, the plastic cladding wrapped around the number plate in the previous model has been substituted by a rear number plate applique that holds the rear number plate lights and the rearview camera. The red-lens units are the replacement of clear-lens tail lamps of the last model. Furthermore, the footstep is a redesigned asset at the rear bumper that completes the changes made on the exterior front.

Moving inside, the top end variant of the updated Scorpio is decorated with a new dual-tone upholstery. Whereas, the blue-grey color theme of the last model continues to be offered. Though, the company has used faux leather to offer a premium feel and comfort. The steering wheel and the gear lever also get wrapped in the new upholstery. Other than this, to care the convenience of the occupants, the brand is providing a roof-mounted sunglasses holder and bigger cubbyholes along with a mobile holder.

Newly introduced features comprise a reverse parking camera with the dynamic assist, one-touch lane change indicator and one-touch power window roll-up for the driver.

New Mechanicals

Under the hood, the updated Scorpio received significant changes as the carmaker is offering the similar powertrain with the different state of tunes. Now, the powertrain is electronically tuned to churn out power figures 140PS/320Nm along with the earlier 120PS/280Nm exertion figure. The bump of 20PS/40Nm than the predecessor trim makes this refined Scorpio a much powerful iteration since now. For sending power to the wheels, the company introduced a new 6-speed manual transmission. Though, it is being provided only with the much powerful version of the SUV.

Price

As the revived Scorpio has got a host of updated features and a new, more powerful engine under the hood, the price of this updated SUV has also been increased. Altogether, the variants count has also been reduced from eight to six and the variant nomenclature has been replaced with even ones instead of the odd number.
