Mahindra Scorpio Adventure: what’s different? 

The Mahindra Scorpio N Adventure gets a host of upgrades which will aid the SUV in off-road conditions. The regular bumpers have been replaced with steel bumpers (front and rear) that not only improve approach and departure angles but also have recovery points integrated into them. Additionally, there’s a metal skid plate and belly plate to protect the mechanicals from hard impacts during driving and the Scorpio N Adventure comes fitted with a steel roof rack as standard. Mahindra claims that the suspension has also been raised and while the standard Z8 variants ride on 255/60 R18 road tyres, this edition rides on 265/60 R18 all-terrain tyres. The Tow bar is standard on this SUV, while optional on other models of the Scorpio N in South Africa
