Mahindra has already showcased the exterior looks of the SUV through official images which shows the versatile vehicle has undergone major changes in terms of looks. New details about the SUV has now emerged closer to its debut date which reveals the power output of the engines to be used in the new Scorpio-N.

This will be nearly 40 hp more than what the standard 2.2-litre diesel engine can generate.
