Definitely an improvement in looks and features. I'm surprised the Scorpio comes with a feature like AFS! Though Renault duster does have features like ESP which makes is somewhat safer.

One thing that my 7 year old son would really miss on the new scorpio is the Handle on in the front of the front left seat. It was very useful to hold.

Haha having already made a faux pas on this thread i will leave it to the experts to determine what angle this is and what the Scorpio is capable of.

All i can say is after 100k+ of driving across India, ive never faced a problem in the hills be it the Western Ghats, Leh, Srinagar, HP or Uttaranchal.

When in doubt slip it into 2nd and boom !

The Scorpio AFS is a typical Indian "jugad", instead of struggling with the motors and gears to turn the light with the steering, an angled light comes on while cornering. This is the same in the XUV5OO.

But at a price point the Scorpio is it gives a whole lot of features (and headaches) missing in even in much more expensive cars.

I guess with the new suspension and improved ride quality, you won't need that handle. In the old one, I guess you would get tossed around a lot if you didn't hold it

Not a safe practise if your son stands in the front passenger side holding this grab handle

Can we also make sure 4WD variant of the review is included?

Really confused between 4WD S10 and XUV W8 AWD. Reviews will really help.

A friend was looking for a SUV for his weekend farm-house jaunts. The new Scorpio was launched recently so we just had to take a look.

The dealership experience was a sour one. The sales-rep took almost an hour to come back with the TD car, after giving a current-Scorpio-owning family a good time with it. And then he insisted that we bring the car back in 2 minutes after going round The Bowring Club. Nevertheless, I took the car for a short spin and here are my views as a hatch / sedan owner:

Design: Mixed feelings. I like the face but it still needs some work. The side profile is uninspiring and almost exactly the same as the outgoing Scorpio. The rear is OK. I'm not a fan of the chincy tail-lights. I really like the OE alloys.

Cabin: Lots of room even for large occupants. The quality hasn't really improved in my opinion, maybe in some places? The finish is certainly better and more premium.

Driving experience: I fell in love instantly with the commanding driving position! The front seats are more like chairs. The view from the driver's seat is fantastic! Low-end torque is great. The gearbox feels better to use than the outgoing Scorpio's. The steering is nice to hold and is not too bad to use. Low speed ride seems to have improved a bit, but it's still a little bouncy and throws you around if you're not slow enough.

Overall, it's a nice car. Fairly desirable. I still feel they could have done something different with the design. The side-profile and rear still look a generation old. The new interior is a welcome change. It feels less like a jeep and more like a mature SUV, that's for sure.

Don't worry he is always safe, he sits and holds it. He too wants to get a commanding view of the road ahead

I have been driving the Scorpio for 11 yrs now and 1.5 lac kms without an incident. Touch wood.
