Mahindra Discontinues Scorpio Automatic Variant
Perhaps a more improved Automatic gearbox will be paired to the facelift variantby Riju Ganguly, on
Mahindra & Mahindra has officially discontinued the Scorpio Automatic from India. The Scorpio automatic variant was launched almost two years ago and was available with the S10 grade and was available with both two-wheel as well four-wheel drive configuration with a starting price of INR. 13.13 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
Mahindra has removed the Scorpio AT variant from their Indian website entirely; the automatic variant was powered by the 2.2 Litre mHawk diesel unit which produced about 120 Bhp and 280 Nm of torque. This same engine is also available with a manual variant as well.
Now there are no words on yet on why Mahindra took the decision to discontinue this SUV variant, but few reports on the internet state that Mahindra has plans to introduce a new & modern Automatic gearbox when they introduce the facelift model in the Indian market. There is a fair chance that the new Automatic gearbox will be equally smooth and responsive as the ones found in the new XUV500.
Apart from the Automatic gearbox on the Scorpio and XUV500 Mahindra also offers AMT gearbox as well with the TUV300 and the Nuvosport.
Currently, the Scorpio price range starts from INR. 9 Lakhs onward while the top end variant priced at INR. 15.35 Lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
