The Auto box in Rexton is an old Merc sourced unit, its age shows up clearly, even compared to most dated Autoboxes, it feels lacking.

For both Ssangyong and Mahindra they will have to find some modern Autobox, considering the fact that they export good amount of vehicles to foreign markets.

The Scorpio now has an autobox sourced from Bosch, well, for the most part of it and bookings are open as well.

This autobox is much better than the slushbox found on the Rexton.

You mean it's not a slushbox?
Then what is it?

It is indeed an automatic gearbox. I used the words "autobox" and "slushbox" interchangeably.

MAHINDRA DEALERS: SCORPIO AUTOMATIC SUV EQUIPPED WITH BOSCH GEARBOX NOW AVAILABLE ACROSS INDIA

Quote:
A while ago, many Mahindra dealers across India stopped taking bookings for the automatic gearbox equipped Scorpio SUV. The pause in bookings reflected the trouble that Mahindra was facing when it came to sourcing the automatic gearbox from Drivetrain Systems International(DSI) Australia, an transmission maker from whom Mahindra used to source the 6 speed automatic gearbox for the Scorpio Automatic. DSI has now been acquired by Geely, a Chinese automaker. Mahindra, for its part, has turned to German auto parts giant Bosch, for sourcing an automatic transmission for the Scorpio.

Good move by Mahindra & Mahindra here
