Before we dive deeper into the features list, let’s talk about the powertrains on offer. The Scorpio-N is being offered with a choice of two powertrains — a 2-litre mStallion turbo-petrol powertrain with 200bhp and 370Nm of torque (380Nm in the automatic). This mStallion powertrain is especially significant as it marks the return of petrol power on the Scorpio. There are some of us who remember the original Scorpio was initially offered with a Renault-sourced petrol powertrain as well.

The second is the proven 2.2-litre mHawk turbo-diesel from the Thar and XUV700 which puts out 175bhp and 370Nm of torque (400Nm in the automatic). Both powertrains can be paired up with either a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. This diesel can also be had in a lower state of tune in the base Z2 variant, with 130bhp and 300Nm of torque, solely with the six-speed manual transmission.

Mahindra Scorpio-N Z2

Let’s start with the most basic variant of the Scorpio-N, the Z2. The Z2 petrol comes with an electronic power steering, while the diesel gets a hydraulic unit. There are A/C vents on the second row, and you also get a smaller touchscreen infotainment system without CarPlay and Android Auto, a 4.1-inch instrument cluster, steering-mounted audio controls, a USB charging port, power windows, start-stop system, and one-touch tumble for the second-row seats.

On the outside, the Z2 gets chrome door handles, LED tail-lamps and turn indicators, skid plates, black-finished grille, and 17-inch steel wheels. However, the headlamps are halogens instead of LEDs.

In terms of safety, this variant packs two airbags, ABS with electronic brake distribution, rear parking sensors, disc brakes on both ends, and ISOFIX child seat mounts.

Safety-wise, the Z4 gets four airbags over the Z2, along with hill-hold, hill descent and electronic stability control, albeit only in the automatic variant.
