Default Facelifted Scorpio in Pune

Any news on the 4WD variant, its not mentioned anywhere, apart from the reference to its GVW.

I just called Silver Jubilee in Pune and they said that they would get the display/demo vehicle, brochures and price list on the 10th!!! The sales lady was somewhat taken aback when I told her that I already had the brochure (props to sidindica) and only wanted a test drive.

Does anyone have the number for the other dealer in Pune, Bora Auto? No one answers the number given on the Mahindra website.

the good thing mahindra has done is added the mHawk engine across the range. so now even the cheaper LX comes with the advanced 2.2 engine, which means tougher competition to the safari.
but they have still not added airbags.

Thanks Sid, for the detailed report.
I hope they have done something to improve the front seats legroom.
Also, is there a 4x4 option too & with which variant?

The looks of the scorpio is great but they need to redesign the rear. Especially, the tail light assembly

Just looked up the website. All variants besides the Getaway come with the Mhawk engine.
There are only three variants now, the SLE, VLX Manual and the VLX with the autobox.
Mahindra is very, very serious about the Xylo.

Looks good .Sad to notice that nothing is mentioned about a 4 X 4 and air bags . Look will be better if the teeth are chopped off .
