Mahindra & Mahindra revealed its new gen Scorpio earlier this month. After a lot of anticipation from the spy images, we have finally received the official images and other interesting features from the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio N.
XUV700 vs Scorpio N
Mahindra will be selling the 2022 Scorpio N along with the previous gen Scorpio. This will place the Scorpio N just below the XUV700 and above the classic Scorpio.
If you are wondering about booking the new Scorpio N or the XUV700, we have their key differences listed out here. Read this article to know more.
XUV700 is built on a monocoque chassis and Scorpio-N, a ladder frame SUV.
Scorpio N gets Mahindra’s twin peaks logo just like the XUV700. It also has a boxy design and flat panels that gives the SUV a muscular and aggressive look. XUV700 on the other hand has a curvier design than the newcomer.
The fronts of both the SUVs are very different in appearance except for the brand’s new logo for its SUVs. XUV700 has a similar boxy structure from the profile and a slightly tapering roofline while the Scorpio N’s roofline is much flatter in comparison.
We have not gotten a good look at the rear end of the 2022 Scorpio N yet. The XUV700 comes with a hatch-style boot lid whereas we are expecting the side open door for the Scorpio N.
XUV700 gets the wraparound taillights and the vertically stacked d-shaped LED tail lights for the Scorpio N.
The Mahindra XUV700 is powered by
- 2-litre mHawk diesel engine (155 PS and 360 Nm)
- 2-litre mHawk diesel engine 185 PS and 420 Nm)
- 2-litre mHawk diesel engine (450 Nm with AT)
- 0-litre mStallion turbo petrol engine (200 PS and 380 Nm)
Transmission options in XUV700: 6-speed MT and optional 6-speed AT
Scorpio N will also be run on the same 2 engine options as in XUV700 but we can expect them slightly detuned. It will also offer both manual and automatic gearboxes. Scorpio N will be offered with an option AWD with its high-end variants.
Official interior images of the Scorpio N are not yet released. But we have gotten a peek into the new SUV through the spy shots. The infotainment screen is not the XUV700’s large fully-digital display layout but only the usual screen along with a semi-digital instrument cluster.
Both XUV700 and the Scorpio N will get similar steering wheels. The seating capacity also is shared by both SUVs. You can get them with the standard 7-seats and with a 5-seat set up in XUV700 or 6-seat set up in the Scorpio N.
XUV700 comes with the following features:
- Panoramic sunroof
- 25-inch infotainment screen
- 25-inch digital driver’s display
- Dual-zone climate control
- 7 airbags
- Electronic parking brake
- Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) with Emergency autonomous braking, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, etc.
Disappointingly, the new Scorpio N will not have as many cool features as the XUV700. The confirmed set of features as of now includes the following:
- Dual LED projector headlamps, Fog lamps and daytime running lights in high-end variants and Halogen lamps in the low-level variants.
- Dynamic turn indicators
- 8-inch infotainment unit
- Automatic climate control
- Wireless charger
- 8- or 9-inch touch screen with Connected car tech
- Roof-mounted speakers
- Hill Hold Control, Hill Descent Control, Traction control, Cruise control
- All-wheel drive that will give us a few off-road thrills
- All-wheel disc brakes
- 17- or 18-inch Alloy wheels
- 360 camera with parking sensors
The XUV700 is currently sold at a starting price of Rs 13.18 lakh (ex-showroom). The highest variant of XUV700 goes up to Rs 24.58 lakh (ex-showroom). Since Scorpio N will stand below XUV700 in the lineup, the price range will be around Rs 11-12 lakh (ex-showroom).
