Each to his own Most designers find symmetry and clean lines appealing
and that can explain Endeaver , Tuscan , Toyota LC , LR and CRV designs.

Middle row window and the back windows in scorp and the tailgate, door handles.. ahm .. ahm ..this is Scorp thread so can't say more.

But yes I agree we are a very diverse nation and many people have different tastes so that explains liking for designs such as that of Scorpio , Trax family ( Merc Wagon-G / Gurkha / Judo/Gama ), Wagon R , Indigo,Versa, Xylo etc.

no such problems buddy. the scorpio community does NOT thrash anybody for voicing out their personal opinions.


i find the scorpio the best looking SUV below 15 lakhs.

btw, no new pictures in this thread?

I am 6 ft 2 inches tall - have owned the scorp for a year plus now
No problem at all with comfort. I have long legs. No problem there as well.
My father sits in the mid seat - he is 6 ft tall. No problem at all.
I have the 7 seater LX so we cannot move the mid seat back.
Still no problem. New version now comes with a nice armrest in the centre of the mid seat - useful for Dads and so on.

4. Middle seat comfort - Is it improved now in the newest edition?
5. Finally a tall man like me, 6'2"" can ride comfortably? Any tall Guys' opinion on this?
Thanks,

Calling the current CRV design as clean and appealing is stretching it a little too far, dont you think? Agreed the previous version of the CRV had those attributes in design.

1. The new full size SUV from Mahindra will be targeted at the next segment. So expect it to be more premium and a few lakhs more than the Scorpio.

2. Scorpio's maintain a pretty decent resale value.

3. Scorpio still sells well and there is no reason for Mahindra to discontinue them. Maruthi will be on it's 99th iteration of the Alto (called Splosh) before the Scorpio gets discontinued.

Default New Scorpio 2.6 CRDE (LX)

Well guys im sorry for the delay but its been 6 months since i got my scorpio but because of non stop work related travel havent had a chance to put up pictures, finally managed to get some up..

Wanna take this opportunity to thank all of you for you tips, advice, stories leading up to the time when i was deciding which vehicle to buy. infact the day i took delivery i met a fellow bhpian who had come to see the scorpio at the showroom..

also in the pictures is my previous vehicle the tempo trax judo which served an amazing 8 years with me , clocking 1,50,000 kms without any major work done on it. I hope the moderators are ok with me posting its pictures along with the scorpios.

The scorpio has been with me for 6 months ,clocked 12,000 kms . done some highway drivin to central UP and Jaipur from Delhi. riding really well just needs some wheel alignment due to the alloys put.

thanks a lot again.. drive safe.. full power !!

hi singh, your trax looks really well maintained.
please post a side view of your scorpio so that we can have a look at your alloys. also, why doesnt your scorpio have the new 'W' bumper with flaps on its sides?

Hi Raj thanks the trax is the love of my life , i used to dedicate many a weekend on it.

I got my scorpio in November '08 and the W bumpers had not been introduced then, i missed it by a few weeks. BUt im sure given some time I would be able to get the bumpers changed easily.

Beautiful Scorpio Singh!
Do you purposely make those tires falling out or is it due to oversize?
IMHO it is somehow not going good with your SUV......par ho sakta hai aapko pasand ho.

Cheers,
Deepak

hi deepgautam thanks a lot.

Yes i have purposely got a size bigger because haanji hum ko passand hai look, but more importantly the bigger size wheels give me a lot of stability especially at high speeds on highways.

cheers

Thanks Raj, in other new i got the wheel alignment done on the scorpio yesterday and that sorted out the problem of the car pulling to the left.
its given a much better overall feel to the drive of teh vehicle ,looking forward to the weekend to go for a long drive on the highways.
