As the latest spy images suggest, the upcoming Scorpio will have a bigger footprint in comparison to the current car. It will benefit from a new front grille with vertical slats housing the company logo in the middle. The new headlamps will be flanked by remodeled twin-pod headlamps. The bonnet will be longer and there will be a new front bumper with wider air intakes. Over the back, the tailgate will also be new featuring a larger side-hinged tailgate, LED taillights and a roof-mounted stop lamp.
Inside, the new-gen SUV will pack completely new interiors with a refreshed dashboard, multi-functional steering wheel, a new touchscreen infotainment system, multicoloured speedometer, new rear AC vents, and more. It will also feature brown and black interior with beige upholstery. A sunroof will also be part of the list.
Previously leaked documents suggest that the homegrown carmaker could name the SUV Scorpio Sting or ScropioN.
