For some reasons, Mahindra Scorpio looks good with massive alloy wheels. Here's one, which now rides on a set of 22-inchers. Take a look at it here.
Mahindra Scorpio has been in the Indian market for over 18 years now. It is highly fancied by the Indian audience for the way it looks, the price it comes for, and the trouble-free ownership experience it offers. In its current iteration, it looks bold. However, it comes with small 17-inch rims, which do not gel well with the massive proportions of the SUV. Owners, therefore, are seen heading towards the aftermarket route to load their Scorpio with bigger rims. We’ve earlier reported some of the nicest-looking Mahindra Scorpio with crazily-big alloy wheels. This time around, we came across another one, which rides on a set of 22-inch rims. We came across this Mahindra Scorpio via a social media platform. It belongs to Mr Eshank Chaudhary.
Talking of the Scorpio, it looks fabulous with these giant rims in place. Moreover, these 5-spoke units are finished in chrome, which gives them an added bling. While such modifications are eye-catchy and look appealing, they come at an added cost of reduced comfort. These rims are shod with low-profile tyres with a bare-minimal sidewall of an aspect ratio ranging in between 25-35 only. Hence, they cannot absorb any impact of the undulated roads, and thus invite a bigger concern of damaging the rims at high speeds. This very example is the range-topping S11 trim of the SUV, which comes loaded with a slew of features.
Mahindra Scorpio is offered with a 2.2L mHawk diesel engine. This 4-cylinder turbocharged oil burner is capable of pushing out a peak power output 140 PS at 3,750 rpm and max torque of 320 Nm at 1,500-2,800 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed MT only. In the BS-6 regime, Mahindra has also chalked off the option of two engine choices and 4WD drivetrain, which were offered earlier. Talking of the prices, Mahindra Scorpio starts at Rs. 11.98 lakh for the base-spec S5 trim and goes up to Rs. 15.52 lakh for the range-topping S11 trim. There are two more variants of offer – S7 and S9, which are priced at Rs. 13.83 lakh and Rs. 14.36 lakh, respectively.
