The new model will bring the Indian brand to the world market, experts are sure.
The Toyota Land Cruiser Prado SUV has long gained enormous popularity in the world, since the model is in fact the most inexpensive Kruzak. At the same time, other world brands also strive to make their Pradik, but even better and cheaper.
There are no exceptions even in the automotive market of India, where local motorists also do not lag behind the global trend and most often opt for SUV segment models. Even here there is a desire to “kill” Toyota Land Cruiser Prado.
Mahindra plans to launch a new generation of Mahindra Scorpio in 2021. The model is based on a frame construction borrowed from Mahindra Thar.
It is expected that the model will inherit the Tara engine range – a 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, as well as a 2.0-liter diesel unit.
As for the equipment, but here Mahindra Scorpio is unlikely to be able to oppose Toyota Land Cruiser Prado – in India most often they buy low-cost cars, and therefore you should not expect a wide selection of options.
Mahindra believes that such equipment is enough to defeat the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, and sales of the model are expected to break all records.
It is possible that in the event of a successful debut in the Indian market, Mahindra will be able to afford to enter the global market, and maybe even the Russian one.
