Please do not buy this Scorpio.... the company is fooling us.... for God s sake if anything bad happens in the future the company will not take any responsibility unlike any other company. This is mainly during the warranty period of your car. Hence the bottom line is no warranty will be given .  Read More »

Mahindra Scorpio Overview

Mahindra Scorpio has been one of the most successful models in the company’s lineup and is considered as a sales mainstay, at least in the seven-seater SUV segment. In fact, having such a reputation has prompted the company to keep updating the SUV quite regularly.
Considering the Mahindra Scorpio price in India, it is one of the most fitting alternatives to the Tata Hexa. The SUV is very competitively priced and turns out to a very good value for money car. Visually, the new Mahindra Scorpio 2017 is a treat to watch and has every bit of those aesthetic cues that make it look bold and muscular.Mahindra Scorpio Overview
Getting inside the Mahindra SUV is a delight and the company has taken good care by providing the most suitable features that buyers look for at that price range. The SUV is available in a total of six trim grades with three engine tuning versions. It is also offered in 2WD (two-wheel drive) and 4WD (four wheel drive) options, thereby proving the SUV’s off-road prowess.

Mahindra Scorpio Exterior

The Mahindra Scorpio is one of the most muscular cars in the SUV segment at the price range. The front section gets a very attractive look with an edgy bumper portion. In fact, the lower bumper and the air dams almost cover the presence of the skid plate. The grille gets a mesh design with a seven-chambered cover. The front wheel arches are big but the rear ones are softer. However, the body is devoid of much black cladding along the lower skirt.
The Mahindra Scorpio top model rides on thick 235 section 17-inch wheels while the lower variants get 15-inch wheels with 215 section tyres. The top-spec models also get projector headlamps and fog lamps.

Mahindra Scorpio Interior

The SUV is extremely relevant to the current market situations and made to give a tough competition to its competitions. The key highlight of the Mahindra Scorpio interior is that it is given bench seat for the third row as well, along with a centre armrest. The seats are wrapped in faux leather upholstery, making the car cabin a better place than most of the cars with fabric upholstery.
Mahindra Scorpio Interior
The front dash section imparts pretty much of attractions as well. The centrally mounted 6-inch touchscreen infotainment system gets GPS satellite navigation. Barring the touch screen unit, the other systems on the dash get analogue dials along with a digital clock. The settings on the centre console are clean with good quality knobs and button bits. The top-end spec also gets automatic climate control along with a heater. There are two 12V power outlets as well.

Mahindra Scorpio Engine & Transmission

The Mahindra Scorpio is available in a total of six variants with three engine trims. The base model gets a completely different engine, which is an m2DICR diesel engine making just a meagre 75 bhp power at 3,200 revs per minute and a maximum torque of 200 Nm at 1,400 revs per minute. The 2.2-litre tried-and-tested mHawk diesel engine is also added in the S5 and S7 grades, which produces a highest power of 120 bhp at 4,000 revs per minute along with a peak torque of 280 Nm at 1,800 revs per minute.
However, the range-topping S11 grades are powered by the same 2.2-litre mHawk engine but with a new tuning that enables the engine to produce a maximum power of 140 bhp at 3,750 revolutions per minute along with a peak torque of 320 Nm at 1,500 revs per minute. The lower S3, S5 and S7 come with just the 2WD option, while the S11 is available in both 2WD as well as 4WD trims. There is a standard 5-speed manual transmission unit available in all the variants barring the 140 bhp S7 which gets a 6-speed unit. Mahindra Scorpio automatic is not offered as of now.

Mahindra Scorpio Mileage

The Mahindra Scorpio offers a very impressive mileage which is one of the bests in the segment. With a fuel metre reading as 15.4 kmpl (ARAI certified), the SUV is definitely one of the most fuel-efficient big-sized SUVs in the market. The mileage figure is very much at par with the Mahindra Bolero, its own sibling.

Mahindra Scorpio Braking and Safety

The Mahindra Scorpio is pretty healthy in terms of braking and safety, except the base model. The top-end Mahindra Scorpio car has dual safety airbags, tyre pressure monitoring system and seat belt warning. ABS, along with EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution) is also given in the top model. However, child safety lock and vehicle immobilizer are added as standard across all the variants.

Mahindra Scorpio Performance and Handling

The Mahindra Scorpio is slowly turning out to be a beast in the affordable 7-seater SUV segment. It has a powerful engine working under the hood and if you are choosing the 140 bhp version, you can be assured that your car can pin down any SUV or MPV of the same price bracket while on the road. However, the base 75 bhp models seem to be a little dated in terms of the power. Being such a big car, it is smaller in power than many hatchbacks and the lack of enough power at your disposal will hurt your ride to some extent.
Apart from that, the ride quality of the car is extremely good. The interior seating is comfortable and the annoying engine noise has been brought down considerably. The gear shifting is smooth and the acceleration is delightful too.

What do we think about Mahindra Scorpio?

With the introduction of the Mahindra Scorpio facelift, the company has managed to maintain its hold on the craze that has been existent for a long time. The SUV is powerful at heart and the same is complemented by the exterior design as well. Mahindra Scorpio on road price is equivalent to many crossover and 5-seater SUVs, which gives the Scorpio an edge over them.
The SUV has been doing well since its launch, along with the Bolero, and the subsequent launches of the XUV500 or the TUV300 have not dented the sales in any sense. The popularity and preference of the car over the other 7-seaters are clearly visible in its sales figures. Buying a new Mahindra Scorpio means you are investing in a car that will pay you back with its immense mileage, attractive designing and a powerful heart under the bonnet. However, the base S3 model has an old engine fitted, which would feel incompetent compared to other cars in the segment.

Mahindra Scorpio Competitors

The Mahindra Scorpio is one of the oldest beasts of the Indian SUV segment. It competes against cars like the Tata Sumo, Tata Hexa and the Renault Duster. It is more of a complete SUV than an MPV and thus has smaller targeted competitors’ list.
