Earlier, in a leaked video of the interior of the 2022 Scorpio-N, it was revealed that the SUV will come with a large infotainment screen which is sourced from Sony, similar to the ones seen inside some of the lower variants of the XUV700. Under the screen, the SUV will get physical buttons for volume, climate control and other functions. The leaked video also revealed that the SUV will get an upgraded flat-bottom steering wheel laced with mounted controls like cruise control and other features.
The interior of the Scorpio-N SUV is likely come with more features such as new upholstery, dual-tone theme, 360-degree camera, dual-zone climate control and connected car technology among others.
The new Scorpio-N will come with both petrol and diesel engines. These include the usual 2.2-litre diesel engine and a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit. The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which is also being used in the flagship SUVs like XUV700, is likely to generate 168 hp of power. This will be nearly 40 hp more than what the standard 2.2-litre diesel engine can generate. Even the 4X4 variant of the new Scorpio-N, which will come with the same diesel unit, is likely to be less powerful than the petrol engine on offer.
Both engines are expected to be offered with the choice of either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission unit.
