2022 Mahindra Scorpio facelift SUV has been spotted several times recently testing on Indian roads under a camouflage. While the exterior of the 2022 Scorpio has been spied a number of times, a sneak peek into the interior of the facelift SUV has surfaced with the cleanest look for the first time.
The test unit of the 2022 Scorpio was spotted by a vlogger who managed to take a look inside and show what the new Scorpio will offer. The three-row SUV will have only front-facing seats. The seats, as seen on the test mule, are wrapped in leather. The second-row passengers will have dedicated AC vents placed at the back of the armrest for front passengers.
The dashboard of the 2022 Scorpio SUV will have a large infotainment unit, most likely to be a touchscreen unit. The infotainment unit is flanked by vertically-oriented AC vents. There will be physical buttons on the centre console for things like climate control and others. The driver display is also a digital unit while the steering wheel will have controls mounted on it.
