The upcoming Scorpio will come based on an updated ladder-frame chassis. It will most likely be bigger and more premium in comparison to the current car. As the spy images suggest, the all-new Scorpio will sport a longer bonnet up front which makes it look bolder. Also visible is the production-ready signature style five slot front grille. Lower down there will be a new bumper sporting wider air intakes. While the test unit features temporary circular lamps at either end, the production-spec model will feature remodeled lights.

Inside, the cabin space will be completely new featuring a reworked dashboard, a touchscreen infotainment system, multicoloured speedometer, engine start-stop button, a new multi-functional steering wheel, new rear AC vents and more. Moreover, the prototype was also seen with the provision for a sunroof, it won't be wrong to expect the same feature in the top-spec variants of the SUV. The new-gen Scorpio has been reported for launch in the second quarter of 2021.
