Mahindra is set to add another variant of the Scorpio Classic. This variant is likely to be called the Classic S5 and will sit between the Classic S and Classic S11 trims. This new variant has been introduced because the higher-spec Classic S11 does not sell as much since it's priced closer to the Scorpio N.
- Scorpio Classic S5 to get three seating configurations
- Will get the same 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine
- Expected to be priced around Rs 14 lakh (ex-showroom)
Mahindra Scorpio Classic S5: what will it get?
The Scorpio Classic S5 will be offered with three seating configurations – a 7-seater with bench, a 7-seater with captain’s chairs and a 9-seater with bench. The other variants currently get a choice of only two from the three options, depending on the variant. However, as per our sources, that is likely to change as the Classic S11 will now get a 9-seat configuration as well.
Mahindra Scorpio Classic S5: powertrain
The Classic S5 will get the same Gen 2 mHawk, 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine producing 132hp and 300Nm of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and sends power to the rear wheels. The Scorpio Classic does not offer an automatic gearbox or 4x4 option that was available on the previous-gen model.
Mahindra Scorpio Classic S5: expected price, waiting period
Currently, the Mahindra Scorpio Classic is priced between Rs 12.64 lakh-Rs 16.14 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Expect the new Classic S5 variant to be priced around Rs 14 lakh, as it sits between the Classic S and Classic S11. The existing models command an average waiting period of around 5-6 months.
