Well...thats actually personal view...u really cant say a person liking the Scorpios design over the Safari is making a foolish statement...Becauz for me...the thing which is practical, really works...and the people who arent practical are fools!!! Today the Safari has become such a joke infront of other Suvs...somebody pays a ridiculous amount of money on it...and wat he gets is a silly gearbox that needs to be kicked to work and a lazy lousy engine which many defend saying..it will be improved in the next light years!!! *

The Safari today is like a ignored child whose parents didnt even bother to give him a polio vaccine since his birth!!
But the opposite goes for the Scorpio...its parents have always cared for it..always..made it leave bad habbits..and the results are in front of u..its improving very fast!!
stratos i never said anything abt the peformance i was only talkin abt the looks of the safari and the scorpio . . .
n yeah sorry it was nc s zen that drifter was talkin abt . . .

Hehehe Ignored child...no polio vaccine.

But like i said before....mahindra r only looking after the scorpio...if we were talking abt the bolero...than that wud become the ignored child with no polio vaccine instead of the safari.

Learning the hard way...u r kidding!! Wat has it learnt? to put a DVD player and sell itself as a limited edition...or a petrol engined one which is owned by 2 unknown people in the world..
Hope i stay alive to see the launch of the new Safari...cauz..today people die at the age of 60-70 years and today I am 19!!!

Well for people who think.. Mahindra sells only a vehicle called Scorpio, they even sell the Bolero, BoleroCamper, Marshal, Commander, Invader, Tourister..etc..

And know what!! a totally new BOLERO is on its way!!

see how unfair/ignorant scoprio's parents are they gave polio vaccine/fed/looked after/petted only the scorpio ignoring all other siblings and leaving them to fend for them selves

atleast safari's parents look after thier rest of the siblings well
and not distuingishing between a girl(indica) or a boy(safari,sumo)

Well... i guess u dont know but the Mahindra pickup sells like no other commercial vehicle....the Bolero being old is loved by people for its macho looks and drive, every government office has a Marshal, go to the villages an u will see the Mahindra Rickshaws, go to schools to see their mini buses!! Wat else do u want!!!

haha! well... this was not abt comparing the sales of the other models of mahindra...but this was abt not ignoring other models...and Mahindra is concerned about all its models!!! And if u are talking abt the 207di...it was launched way after the Mahindra pickups..so i am not sure..but Mahindra sold more pickups...as for a joke....my normal vegetable vendor also has 2 of them..one white and the other bottle green

By the way.. Scorpio got the CAR OF THE YEAR award ....didnt it!! Thats proves it all..!!!!

Hey when the safari was launched i don think there were any car of the year awards, these were started by autocar india recently.

So if there wud have been any awards that time...im sure the safari wud have taken those.
