Mahindra is currently readying its facelifted Scorpio, and in its latest avatar, it will get an updated 140hp engine (output is up by 20hp). The facelifted car will also feature a more refined and responsive six-speed automatic gearbox, the same unit that does duty in the XUV500.
The six-speed unit, however, was engineered for transverse engine applications, and it won’t be a straight fit for the Scorpio. Mahindra will re-engineer it to meet the Scorpio's longitudinal layout.
The auto box will replace the company’s gearbox that was introduced in 2015. The current Scorpio's five-speed manual gearbox will continue to be offered on the facelift.
