Safari's launch was the reason to postpone scorpio's launch as per source.

Will update as the news flows....
Guys, pls educate me, why is mahindra waiting for Safari 2.2 launch. Is it not sure of its product. Is it scared of the competition.

Am I missing something??

That didn't stop them from becoming one of the best sellers a couple of months ago. I've never driven one, but a relative who owns a Fiesta TDCi said that the Logan DCi he drove was not very different and much cheaper, but this is OT.

I can scarcely begin to believe how a Scorpio can topple at 40kmph, and many other indian vehicles not suffer the same fate. The Scorp has a really large wheel track.

Mahindra Scorpio Getaway has been launched 3 months back, Tata's are still playing wait & watch with their Xenon, Aint they ? So it doesnt hurt to wait and watch, maybe one can price it better to start with and force the other manufacturer to look foolish by giving more discounts or by introducing new variants.

Earlier it was only scorpio that was ruling the SUV segment in India..
now that tata safari has come up with a far better engine..competition in this segment is going to get tougher for scorpio....

Guys any updates regarding the Specs of scorpio 2.2 ltr???

Even the Mahindra Guy, to whom i spoke today, doesnt have any idea when will they launch this much hyped Eagle. Looks like it cannot be expected this year & the new safari will enjoy a comfortable cruise through out the year.

i think by launching the scorpio next year ,.mahindra is commiting a mistake.the safari will have the advantage for 6 months(till march 08)..they should lauch the scorpio eagle ASAP so that tata`s cannot take the advantage
