Mahindra Scorpio m-Hawk
Since eagle(brand name) is already registered, Mahindra and Mahindra will brand the scorpio with eagle engine as Mahindra scorpio m-Hawk when launched. The high speed direct injection, Common Rail m-Hawk engine develops 120 HP @ 4000 rpm. Mahindra developed the m-Hawk engine with inputs from AVL of austria. This m-Hawk engine will comply to the tougher euro IV emission norms. Mahindra plans to launch the m-Hawk engine powered scorpio across the globe. Though scorpio is a market leader in the SUV segment, it draws crticism for its poor handling and impractical interiors. Recently Mahindra replaced the leaf springs with coil but that too is insufficient. Hence for the new scorpio m-Hawk it is working on the suspension with great care. It is fine tuning the suspension. The reduced mass of the m-Hawk will also help in improvement of dynamics, the m-Hawk engine is built from aluminium alloy and hence it is 60kg lighter than the current 2.6L CRDe engine. Other than the m-Hawk engine, mahindra has refreshed the interiors of the scorpio. NVH((noise, vibration& harshness) is optimised and hence inside the new scorpio m-hawk, you can hear your favourite music peacefully. Audio controls will be mounted on the steerring wheel. Mahindra m-Hawk will also see some new (useful) features – rain sensing wipers and tyre pressure sensor to the scorpio. You can differentiate scorpio 2.2L CRDe and scorpio m-Hawk by noting the m-hawk badges. Mahindra scorpio 2.2L m-Hawk will be launched in a week time.(Probably November 30th)
the blips retained:
Small central console controls and buttons which are often inaccessible while driving the car. Air con vents in between the front seats and hence in effective cooling for rear passengers. Jump seats will continue, genuine third row seats still missiong.
