New Mahindra Scorpio-N Adventure Edition for South Africa – Pricing and features

Towards the tail end of 2023, Mahindra announced the imminent launch of the new Scorpio-N Adventure Edition following the runaway success of its predecessor.

At the time, Rajesh Gupta, CEO of Mahindra South Africa, said the automaker had “listened to the calls of Mahindra fans and will soon introduce a special Mahindra Scorpio-N Adventure Edition” to our roads. 

Roughly three months later the vehicle has yet to be officially introduced and doesn’t show up on the company’s website, either, but we have managed to uncover its pricing thanks to our well-informed sources at Duoporta.

Slotting in at the top of the Scorpio-N family, the new Adventure Edition will retail for R644,499 once it goes on sale in the country, which will be accompanied by a 5-year/150,000km warranty and 5-year/110,000km service plan.

Geared for adventure

The new Scorpio-N Adventure Edition is a more rugged take on the standard SUV and wears custom steel bumpers that increase its approach and departure angles, a roof rack, off-road tyres, unique 18-inch alloy wheels, and “Adventure” badging. 

The new bumpers feature integrated fog lamps and are also pre-fitted with a tow bar, recovery hooks, and high-lift jacking points to get the SUV out of a sticky situation if need be.

Powering the special-edition model is the same 2.2-litre, turbo-diesel mill married to a six-speed automatic gearbox as found in the rest of the Scorpio-N line-up, which churns out 129kW and 400Nm.

The selectable 4Xplor four-wheel-drive system is standard, too, offering rear-wheel-drive, four-wheel-high, and four-wheel-low settings; as are Normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud/Rut, and Sand drive modes.

Completing its off-roading arsenal, the Mahindra is equipped with a mechanical rear-locking differential and electronic brake-locking differential, as well as hill hold and hill descent control.

Based on the top-spec Z8 trim level, the Adventure Edition brings a large assortment of creature comforts to boot.

Potential owners can look forward to dual-zone climate control with back-row vents, a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and built-in navigation, a 4.2-inch driver’s display, a sunroof, leatherette upholstery, a multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, a reverse camera, rear parking sensors, six airbags, and LED-projector headlamps.

Gupta also revealed that the special-edition Scorpio-N will have “a number of [exclusive] interior additions” but we will have to wait until it’s officially introduced before finding out what these entail.

TopAuto had the opportunity to snap a few photos of a pre-production Adventure Edition, as shown below, but keep in mind any panel gaps and imperfections shown are not indicative of how the production-ready SUV will be presented.
