Come on Parm, you cannot just say that its a hit among Indians out there because of just one SUV!!! Time will prove you right( or maybe wrong!!)

My guess..

I can see wheel hubs protruding more towards outside than a normal Scorpio.

I have seen quite a few in Qatar too. Both personal vehicles and company ones. Definitely not rare, more like occasional.

BTW, sold only with petrol engine and 4wd.

Got it. I was wondering that maybe they (protruding hubs) were for all wheel drive hubs.

My father in Qatar briefly considered the Scorpio, before deciding to with a X-trail.

Mahindra have an offer that if you buy a Scorpio over there and at some point in time, if you decide to relocate back to India, they will move the steering to the right. But, his dislike of the Scorpio design won over this offer. This offer could be one of the reasons for an Indian to buy a Scorpio over there.
