Mahindra Scorpio will now be available with the new S4+ variant that will offer more safety features than the existing S4 variant that was launched at a price of Rs. 10.1 lakhs. The additional safety features include ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, seatbelt-reminder warning and panic brake indication. The latest variant of Mahindra Scorpio has follow-me-home headlamps as standard, so that the car owners can find their way back home.
The new Mahindra Scorpio S4+ is also equipped with central locking facility, front and rear 12V power outlets, drive away door locks, rear view mirrors that can be manually adjusted internally, manual air conditioning, tilt adjustable steering, hydraulic power steering and power windows.
Besides that, there are many more safety features on alloy wheels and side cladding. Being an upgraded version of the S4 variant, the S4+ acquires the shift-on-fly four wheel drive system from its predecessor. Just like the S2 and S4 variants, the steel wheels and the black side cladding comes with the S4+ as standard.
The S4+ variant will be more expensive by Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 50,000 over the S4.
In September, 2014, Mahindra had launched the facelifted Scorpio in five variants that include S2, S4, S6, S6+, S8 and S10. Powering the base variant of the Scorpio is a 2.5-litre 4 cylinder m2DiCr diesel engine that produces 75bhp @3,200rpm and peak torque of 195Nm @1,400 rpm to 2,200rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The other variants get a 2.2 litre mHawk engine that produces 120 PS power @ 4000 rpm and a torque of 280 Nm @1800 rpm to 2800 rpm.
The India based automobile manufacturer has its product portfolio ranging from trucks, tractors, SUVs, MUVs and two wheelers. Mahindra and Mahindra is working towards the launch of Mahindra XUV 500 Hybrid and the new generation Bolero in 2015. Both the upcoming products from Mahindra were spied testing recently. This gives us an impression that, the XUV 500 Hybrid and the new generation Bolero would hit the Indian roads on time.
While we quickly analyze some of the previous reports of Mahindra, we realize that Mahindra seems to be on an up gradation spree.
