Agni Incorporated Pvt.Ltd, the authorised distributor of Mahindra vehicles in Nepal, is readying to launch the new SUV–the Scorpio-N–in the Nepalese market. The Scorpio-N is based on the company’s third-generation body-on-frame platform, and it comes with a new design, advanced tech-features, and new safety features.
The new Scorpio-N has bigger dimensions than the outgoing models. The redesigned front fascia features a new grille, dual LED projector headlamps, and C-shaped fog lamps, and on the rear, the SUV comes with tall, stacked LED tail lamps.
