Yes, another important feature ABS starts at GX level in Safari, while Scorpio Sle has ABS at full Rs.2 Lacs cheaper. IMO, the braking circus of both demand ABS. So, indeed a good feature.

BTW, do you want to discuss other games in this thread too?

i am sure that they wont have vlx with black interiors. vlx is the top model. and they should have beige interiors for sure. wait for the launch there in jaipur. see it with your eyes before booking. india has a fasination with beige colour. its peoples choice. no offence to anyone.


wow they have discontinued with the CRDE and brought the mhawk. ABS is cheaper and power ORVMs not bad M&M. new bumpers dont look that bad. but i hate the silver tooth. i feel i want to break the designers front tooth and fix him silver ones to make them feel what they have done. now i dont think they can undo it. lolz. i guess we will have to live with it.

vaibhav, surely wait till its launch in your city and have a look, topends does comes with two tone beige interiors, surely they would have it in your model.
Another thing what i feel is misssing in this monster is airbags, still i dont understand why does mahindra doesnt feel providing it atleast as optional which is necessary for that power.

mahindra colour codes its interiors. the white, rocky beige & silver scorpios gets beige interiors whereas the green, brown & black scorpios get black interiors.

cos they are fools! atleast if they are not providing airbags, as a compensation, they have decreased the price by a huge margin. but i bet many wont mind spending a premiuim for their safety.

I completely fail to understand, why cant Mahindra offer Airbags?? I am sure it can not be a cost factor. It has to do something with the dashboard design.

VLX-AT 965400

thats a drop of almost 1.5 lakhs for the top end VLX.
I had almost finalized on the Safari GX 4x4 when Mahindra hit me out of the blue with this. The SLE has 4x4 option according to the brochure. The SLE also has all the options that I think are necessary and doesn't have the the electronic crap like rain sensing wipers, Tire pressure sensor etc, which I don't care about.

I think the SLE with ABS is huge VFM over the Safari (purely my opinion, you don't have to agree with me). The other two things that I like are the fact that the third row faces forward since the kids prefer this to sitting side ways. Also the rear ac is integrated into the center consol giving me space on the roof to attach a larger DVD player for the kids.

From some other posts, I gather that the Mahindra has some revisions to the suspension as well improve the ride and handling. If this is true, I think my decision has been made. First thing i will probably do is to take it to Road And Track and change the front grill. Anybody want a second hand Walrus tooth grill, please IM me ;-)

I purely agree!
BTW, what is the price difference between sle 2wd & 4wd? And is 4x4 available in m-hawk engine? Even if it is a crde 2.6ltr unit, with ABS & 4wd this woud be pure VFM product!

mahindra has discontinued its CRDe engine on the scorpio. now all scorpio variants including the base LX comes with the mHawk engine.

i think the decrease in the sales of the scorpio due to many prospective scorpio buyers opting for the xylo forced mahindra to slash the price of the scorpio.

You can expect the 4WD to be about a lakh more expensive. As per the brochure specs, it looks like the 4WD is available in all variants. The SLE with 4WD & ABS at around 9 lakhs ex-showroom would be a great deal.

The Scorpio Getaway still comes with the CRDe engine, but I think they are at the verge of discontinuing this model - poor to no sales. All the other versions, LX, SLE, VLX & VLX-AT, come with the mHawk. Maybe now all the Bolero versions will get the CRDe?
