Carrying camouflage on the front fascia, nose section, front fenders, tailgate, grille, headlights and fog lamps, the Scorpio facelifted will have the basic boxy silhouette like the existing model. By carefully observing the prototype, only minor aesthetic revisions should be implemented in the new Scorpio in order to keep the refreshment at minimalist mid-life with modifications. The major change is on the Imperio-like seven-slat grille and a revised rear door with the absence of a plastic body liner. A new set of alloy wheels and adjustments to the front and rear bumpers will also be implemented.
The interior design is likely to be identical to the current Scorpio, but expect a new theme of colors, trim and trim, as well as a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, EcoSense and Connected Applications selected from the 2017 Mahindra XUV500 Expect a set of jump seats for the third row too.

Expect micro-hybrid technology to be more advanced and useful for better fuel economy.
