Thanks to the modification job done by Mahindra Customization Studio, this Mahindra Scorpio has improved in off-road capabilities. It has also been renamed to “Mahindra Scorpio Mountaineer” to hint at its ruggedness
Mahindra SUVs are well-known for the great modification potential that they carry. Already, many models, including the Thar, the Bolero, the Scorpio and the XUV500, have been customized to a great extent by many. Some of you would remember that recently, we brought to you the details of a stunning modified Scorpio done up by NYC Custom. Today, we have another custom Scorpio that has become a tougher off-roader, which is thanks to the several customizations that have been bestowed upon it by the Mahindra Customization Studio.
Comprehensive modifications have been done to this Mahindra Scorpio, both inside and out.
Overall, this modified Mahindra Scorpio features an improved suspension, a new set of bumpers and better tyres, etc. All of these are done to support the car when driving on rough roads and help you easily tackle the hurdles while travelling on the challenging mountain terrain. At the front, the stock bumper has given way to the CRC steel unit which helps improve the approach angle, thereby enhancing the off-road abilities. The regular headlights have been substituted with three-piece units, while the front bumper is integrated with two neat fog lights. A hood scoop with a red highlight has also been added to the SUV.
A wide range of modifications has been done to the front of the Scorpio.
in the side profile, the whole car body now comes with a new paint scheme with red highlights. The new sleek black 17-inch alloy rims with Maxxis Bighorn tyres ensure that the car can operate well over the rough terrain. The fenders now get thick cladding and feature integrated indicators. Dune lamps have also been installed on the roof to help the driver have better visibility at night. Moreover, the vehicle has been equipped with a snorkel to increase its water wading capacity. The car now features a two-seat layout with covered deck to keep the length unchanged. The Scorpio Mountaineer looks like a Getaway if seen from the side profile; however, while the former’s seating capacity is limited to two, that of the latter is up to five.
The side profile has also been customized a lot to contribute to the more robust look of the Scorpio Mountaineer.
Even the rear-end sports a wide range of modifications. A spare tyre holder is present as seen in a regular vehicle but has a different holder. The tail lights are also new while the tailgate is different because of the pick-up body style which has been created by chopping off the car's rear portion. There are four exhaust pipes in total but it looks like some of these are simply dummies. An off-road bumper with an integrated brake lamp has also been installed to contribute to the rugged look of the vehicle.
The rear of the SUV has also received a host of modifications.
Some modifications have also been made to the interior. The dashboard, the gearstick and the steering wheel now feature red highlights. New upholstery with red highlights is also added to the cabin to match the exterior body colour.
Modifications are also done to the interior of the vehicle as well.
The existing Scorpio is powered by two power options. The first one is a 2.2-litre diesel motor which has two states of tunes: 120 bhp against 280 Nm in the lower variants and 140 bhp against 320 Nm in the top-spec variant. The second one is a 2.5-litre m2DICR diesel unit which is good for 75 bhp against 200 Nm. The transmission duties on these two engines are undertaken by a 6-speed and 5-speed MT gearbox, respectively. Whether this Mahindra Scorpio gets any alterations in terms of the performance is unknown. This has to be one of the best examples of a modified Mahindra Scorpio that we have ever come across.
