New Scorpio N is the most advanced Mahindra Scorpio ever built
The new Mahindra Scorpio-N gets a visibility angle of 23 degrees, ground clearance of 182 mm and front seat height of 854 mm. All these come forward to give a commanding seating posture and a good view of the road ahead, apart from excellent off-road driveability.
The new Mahindra Scorpio-N offers legroom of 1,047 mm for the first row seats, 935 mm for the second row seats and 834 mm for the third row seats.
Mahindra claims that despite the ladder-on-frame construction, the new Scorpio-N has a lower center of gravity by 70 6 mm, which is less than the current crop of D-segment SUVs.
Best-in-class body roll control
The new Mahindra Scorpio-N is based on a ladder-on-frame construction, with the body mounted on the frame. While the base frame is 10 per cent lighter at 213 kg, the top body is also 13 per cent lighter at 293 kg, thus giving the new Scorpio-N better torsional stiffness and better local stiffness.
Apart from the extensive changes done to the body and frame, the new Mahindra Scorpio-N also has a modern suspension setup – double wishbone at the front and Penta link with Watt's linkage at the rear, both of which are segment firsts.
Mahindra Scorpio-N gets Electronically Assisted Dual-Pinion Steering, which is also a one-of-its-kind steering setup in its class.
Mahindra Scorpio-N has become the only three-row SUV under Rs 25 lakh to get a four-wheel-drive system as an option. Mahindra has named this system '4XPLOR', in which mechanical locking rear differential and brake locking front differential are available.
4XPLOR four-wheel-drive system
The new Scorpio-N with its tech-rich features is a step up from the utilitarian feel of the current generation Scorpio. The new SUV gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, runs on Mahindra's AdrenoX operating system and features 'What3Words' with Alexa and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Features for tech-savvy people
The new Mahindra Scorpio-N retains the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine of the Thar and XUV700.
