Congratulations. A very good move considering the X number of features XUV provides us in comparison with scorpio and also considering the fact that it is a better looking and spacious vehicle as well.

On an other note I expect Mahindra to rethink on the pricing of Scorpio. I just don't feel it's the right price for the car.

Yep earlier the Safari was clearly priced a fair bit over the equivalent Scorpio versions and was in many ways a size bigger. The XUV was a tad higher than the Storme and lower than the perceived overpriced ARIA. Now the most desirable S10 version is too highly priced and too close to the XUV W8 and on par with W6. S10 should have come in at current s8 price point. There will always be initial takers for the top end model S10 but in time there will be greater though put in and XUV W6 seems the clear better deal. Storme update could take away a bit of the S10 shine. You should not have a vehicle listed at 7.9L ex showroom for the base variant landing at 16+ for the top model OTR in some locations. Too wide a range.

In marketing sense its priced right for them.
If the price is closer to XUV, many customers might end up spending more to buy it instead of scorpio. In the end more profit for Mahindra,

I think your opinion is true.

I visited the showroom in Bannargatta road and took the TD of newScorpio but now I am considering XUV 500.
Even though there are mixed reviews about XUV , especially about its ride, I also felt that its a good all round package available int the market.

I have requested a TD of XUV from the dealer TVS in Kochi and yet to take it.
Duster's ride is excellent but it is good for seating just 4.5 (not 5 ) people.

Waiting for December / Jan to see the offers in the market.

Can anyone in the forum comment on the ride quality and improvements in the latest XUV 5OO models?

I agree about the huge pricing gap. Especially when I have paid up for the S10 4X4 (waiting for it)
I do not really like the XUV (its a brilliant car) & Tata's ASC is beyond my reach + the fact that as a product, Scorpio might be having less of issues. And also that a new Storme is being launched.

IMO, they should have skipped the S8 model & introduce the S10 just a bit over the S8's price. Currently, the S8 sits at where the VLX's price was. Yes, they have introduced more features, but much hasn't changed from the past (not feature wise, but shell wise)

This is liking milking the brand. FYI, the demand is so much that S2, 4 & 10 are completely sold out. I am sure, this will be a sales success. Has converts as well from the other cars in this price range.

on a side note - I saw another scorpio today on the OMR in Chennai. I could only see it from the side/rear. I was cycling and it was quite quick (80ish) It had a fully stickered rear.

I may be completely wrong, but it seemed like the back was "flat" i.e not the two tone hideous stuff that is currently there.

As per Economic Times, over 6000 Scorpios have been sold since the new model has been launched.

Thanks, I booked it from India Garage and got a discount of Rs. 65k plus 10k worth of free accessories. Yet to decide on other accessories to install apart from the reverse camera from them. Insurance is free, but if I pay up 4k more, it would be upgraded to Bumper to bumper type.

Checked out the new Scorpio and the space was at a premium for the second and third row. For all its bulk outside, its a very modest cabin inside.

Maybe I am comparing it to the hatchbacks and sedans, but I felt the quality of trim on inside could do better.

Mahindra had brought the vehicle to our office campus and it attracted a fairly large crowd.

It's so disappointing - I can t even say!! Having tracked this vehicle for almost a year and not having an automatic available IMHO is suicidal for Mahindra. The Scorpio is one of the best value for money in the market today and I can't for the life of me understand why there is no auto. I spoke to some guys at Mahindra auto and they are equally tight lipped. I saw a post in Jan that showed the auto test mule - so it's definitely on the cards - the golden Q is when? Is anyone in Mahindra listening? Rumour has it they want to launch the upcoming compact SUV and then the XUV auto box !!

This has always been a major flaw of the Scorpio. Innova for example has much less exterior bulk but much more interior space when compared to the Scorpio.

Just so, zombiedriver! An automatic would put the 'Sone pe suhaga' touch, so to speak, on the new Scorpio. I have been using the original Scorpio (2004 model) with non-CRDE prime mover now for over 10 years.

And my one & only grouse is that they did not have an auto on offer at time. Like most other Scorpio-owner acquaintances I am one happy owner and I have no intention of selling my faithful old Bucephalus. But I do have every intention of acquiring a new one after they introduce the automatic.

For a while I was sold on the XUV, but having followed the owners' feed back on these columns and on other fora, I'm glad I waited.

Yes indeed - that's a great question. Mods, when do we get the official review of this car. That will probably - ahem! - tip the balance of opinion!
