But the video certainly makes the terrain look not so formidable.
Please Allow me - this is the same slope

That is Uday Bhan Singh in the snap standing tilted beside the car on the same slope this video was shot.

Walking down this slope was next impossible without slipping and sliding, walking up, required all 4 limbs for some.

You may see more pictures from this set at my ownership thread

I am a Newbie as far as being an offroader goes.

Now this clears all the doubts. In the video the slope looked easy

Actually Marengo climbed very easily - however this was the second attempt.

The video of the first attempt, also the first time 4wd was used on Marengo and driven by a not at all experienced offroad driver (me). Initially tried a half-hearted thing, just to get the nose up, then realised that maybe the thing will go all the way up, which it did.

Hence the earlier video appeared much smoother and easier.

This one has been shot at a better angle, shows the steep slope, but the way it climbs up seems like a piece of cake

The pic with the Santro behind the Scorp looks really good. Would have looked better if the Santro wasn't there!

Cheers,
Vikram

Another one. Now with front / back guards. Next upgrade is ICE which will happen soon. After that alloys - not sure which one will suite on white color.

Excellent pictures. Won't the front guard hamper air-flow to the engine? Also I read somewhere that it transfers force of impact directly to the chassis and causes more damage to the occupants

I have tried to search for new upgraded Scorpio everywhere but couldn't find any clue . Is there any news regarding when will be the new Scorpio launched. Will it be launched before the all new SUV which is going through trials or is it due before that.
