The new spy pics show the the car’s new dashboard that is darker in color than the outgoing Scorpio. The AC vents are now rectangular with silver accents. The new simple instrument console houses a tachometer on the left and the speedometer on the right. There is also a MID between the two meters. The XUV500 inspired steering wheel uses a different color scheme and includes buttons to control the audio system on the left and cruise control functions on the right. A rotary knob sits near the lower part of the steering wheel, which is likely to be the ORVM control knob for the car. The 2014 Mahindra Scorpio facelift uses blue and grey upholstery for the seats.
