Another link here illustrating the fact:

TOP SELLING SUV for the 2013-14 fiscal, which is no mean achievement seeing the competition and the northward moving diesel prices.

Post Re: Mahindra Scorpio: Segment leader in FY 2013-14

I am just wondering how could people on a forum like this miss out basic fact or did I miss any thread in between. I know there is no comparison between the vehicles but when we are talking about numbers lets normalise them.

The deliveries of Ecosport started from July 2013 so basically it had a quarter less, so 45k in 3 quarters(Ecosport) and 50k in 4 quarters(Scorpio), I am sure people are good with numbers and moreover Ecosport is constrained in production n deliveries in domestic market.

@Moderators: why is the Sales thread still not out at teambhp this time? it's the 8th of month already :(

OT: When can we expect official reviews of X-cent? My friends have been pestering me to get updates

Hi,

You probably did not visit this thread link: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...-analysis.html (February 2014 : Indian Car Sales Figures & Analysis)

For your 2nd question; the details as of now are given on this thread link: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...4-66-lakh.html (Hyundai Xcent (Grand i10 Sedan) caught testing : Now launched @ Rs. 4.66 lakh)


Thanks

But I was talking about March 2014 numbers which comes up as summary for entire financial year Apr-13 to Mar-14.

For the second query can you quote the exact post in thread which talks about the tentative timing of the review since I couldn't find it as it runs into several pages.

Another thing to note is being election year a lot of scorpios have been brought by the politicos over the last few months as they would definitely prefer the rugged reliable Scorpio over the other soft roaders.

The link provided for the sales figures pretty much stands as a testament to the question raised in my opinion. I am sure the March'14 sales figures (to be specific) are being analyzed.

Regarding the Xcent, Firstly; this is not the right thread to discuss it any further. It is officially expected by April 10th 2014.

Thanks

Nice catch.

I just checked the Sep '13 report and it confirms that the dispatch from factory started in June 2013 thus, Ecosport had 2 less months compared to Scorpio. If we take Scorpio's sales in Apr '13 and May '13 out, then it will be at ~41,300.

Mahindra shouldn't be complacent, it is just a matter of time before more "polished" vehicles start gaining confidence of the people. If Mahindra can improve the Scorpio's NVH levels, provide a good top variant with decent equipment, and improve the general feel of the plastics, I think they will have a killer product even for 2014-15. A Scorpio sounds louder than a truck today (ok, that may be an exaggeration), but people going forward will be looking towards more refinement too, in addition to reliability.

What version are you talking of here?
Ever driven the Mhawk?

Even the Mhawk shudders when turning on and off. NVH levels are on the higher side due to absence of padding. It is not as high as it used to be pre-mhawk but it still is high and would need to be addressed. But more than the sound, the shudders should be addressed for sales after the year 2015.

As of now that issue isn't a showstopper. The car has turned out to be extremely reliable over the last 60k kms for us. There has been one major issue which can be attributed directly to the idiotic people at the service centers that couldn't diagnose a broken fuse in 4-5 visits.

And hope the bouncy nature of the back seats are addressed too. Safari does a great job at keeping the food inside, for back benchers, after a long drive.

The Scorpio is the undisputed leader, no doubt. A 10 year old model which still has its DNA firmly in place and reigns supreme.

But that said, I don't agree with the comparison with Duster and Ecosport. Scorpio is a proper body-on-frame SUV while the duster/ecosport is more of a car-made-in-to-an-SUV. If it is only about the price point then we should compare scorpio with every C segment sedan.

Duster is a Monocoque. True blue SUVs (more often than not) have ladder chasis (aka Body on Frame) eg Safari, Scorpio, Bolero, MM540, CJ3B, Fortuner, Landcruiser etc. Makes them heavy, but tough as tacks.

Duster is a monocoque so is Ecosport and even the XUV. You can read more here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...dvantages.html (Monocoque SUVs : Advantages and Disadvantages)

Even the so called refined and more expensive toyota's
Innova's and Fortuners shudder as well.
That said done 56K in mine,and she has provided the most peaceful ownership experience of all the vehicles.
