Default New Scorpio AD

Saw, Scorpio ad in TOI bangalore today (yes I read newspaper in night)

Looked very interesting. They say a very cushy ride. I dont kno if that meant handling is further screwed up!!!

But as always, when a new car release, I was so temped to go and book one. But did not do

Had been to test drive Scorpio today, the scoop seemed to be more of cosmetic.

Nope, All I could see was a white scorp with a mirror in the rear end to show the new suspension. AND no 4WD . OTR for Topend is 964K

I am no expert in writing the reviews( so not writing in reviews section), but the test drive, which was a short one, was a kind of scary.

It had a huge powerful engine. started with a lotta a vibration. but after the start it was very silent. It really pulled lotta torque.
Suspension seemed to be soft and at a speed around 60 80, which it achieved very soon, it felt very pitchty. and as usual lot of body roll.

The interiors were really well laid out. I liked it a lot. Can immprove on quality though. Doors closed with a rattle.
