At the 2023 edition of the Nampo Harvest Day in South Africa, Mahindra had put up quite a range of new models on display. The Indian marque also launched a special version in South Africa for its top-selling SUV, called the Mahindra Scorpio N Adventure Edition, priced at R644,499 (approximately Rs 29.59 lakh). The same event also marked the 20th anniversary of Mahindra cars in the Rainbow Nation.

Gets The Same Cabin And Features

Mahindra hasn’t made any changes to the cabin (save for the addition of an overhead storage rack) of the Scorpio N for the special edition. It gets the same dual-tone cabin theme and even the identical features set as the standard model. The list includes a sunroof, dual-zone AC, an 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless phone charging. Its safety kit consists of up to six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), front and rear parking camera, driver drowsiness detection, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Available With A Single Powertrain Only

The Scorpio N in South Africa is equipped with the powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine, producing 175 PS/400 Nm, similar to the India-spec version. It is exclusively sold with a 6-speed automatic transmission but is available in both 2WD and 4WD configurations.

Mahindra offers the India-spec model with the same diesel engine in a lower state of tune as well (132 PS/300 Nm), paired with the same 6-speed AT while having the option of a 6-speed MT as well. There’s also a 2-litre turbo-petrol engine (203 PS/up to 380 Nm) on offer, available with the same set of transmissions.

Price Range And Rivals

The South Africa-spec Mahindra Scorpio N is priced between R477,199 and R644,499, translating to Rs 21.91 lakh and Rs 29.59 lakh. The Scorpio N takes on the Tata Harrier, Safari and Hyundai Creta/Alcazar and Mahindra XUV700 in India. Given the affinity of Mahindra buyers in India to modify their rides, it would be nice if we got the Scorpio N Adventure Edition too, or at least something similar for the Thar.
