Mahindra introduces 1.99-litre engine in Scorpio and XUV500 in Delhi

Mahindra’s XUV500 and Scorpio have been hot-selling models in the Indian SUV market. The recent ban by the Supreme Court on registration of diesel vehicles featuring engines over 2000cc in Delhi has resulted in a considerable drop in overall sales for Mahindra. To address this issue and comply with norms, the company has finally introduced the much awaited 1.99-litre mHawk diesel engine in Delhi for the Scorpio and the XUV500.

Mechanically both the SUVs indeed feature a downsized 2.2-litre mHawk engine. Though the SUVs now get a slightly smaller engine in size, the power and torque figures have almost been left untouched. The XUV500 generates about 138bhp and 320Nm of torque, which is about 10Nm lower than the existing model, while the Mahindra Scorpio generates about 120bhp and 280Nm of torque, while. However, the new 1.99-litre-based Scorpio and XUV500 have been offered only in 2-Wheel drive option and come mated to 5-speed and optional automatic transmission.

Mahindra indeed comes forth as the first automaker in the country to offer a new compliant engine in its popular selling models like Scorpio and XUV500. The new Mahindra Scorpio with 1.99-litre engine option has been introduced for  a price ranging between Rs 9.67 lakh – Rs 12.75 lakh, while the XUV500 with the 1.99-litre mill costs between Rs 11.58 lakh – Rs 15.51 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). Both the SUVs continue to be offered in existing trim options and offer similar features.

With the new compliant engine, the company indeed can expect a rise in sale as no other automaker has come up with a downsized engine option in the country. Moreover, similar performance figures and features shall continue to impress its followers in the country.
