45K Kms Scorpio MHawk review
Review will focus on
- Whats good ?
- Whats bad ?
- What Needs Mahindras attention for the new scorpio 2013-14??
- Probably the best front two seats in a 10 Lakh SUV
- Very comfortable seats
- Power at all gears
- The masculine look
- Ground clearance , could be better .
- Cruise mode is wonderful feature , not available in any other SUV @ this price
- Micro Hybrid , good feature , not available in any other car of this class, problem is that it stops the over all vehicle and resets the music system , switches of the AC which can be irritating sometimes .
- Reverse parking is very good . ( Good sensing )
- Front grill is good , bumpers are rock solid . Once I banged my apartment gates . The gates made of iron got bend . Scorpio bumpers had a minor scratch . Rock solid vehicle
- The lights passed for the vehicle is very low , need higher power or we need to upgrade .
- The Auto wipers are a good feature . I just have to switch it on when it starts raining . Initially the speed was not enough . Later looks like M & M upgraded the firmware . It now works perfectly according to rains . Driving it in rains , have no issues . A sudden splash on ur car on a high way can blind u for a second . The Auto wipe takes care of these kind of impacts and can work on its own ( I have experienced it myself )
Suggestions for the 2013-14 Scorpio
- No roof AC .
- Very hot sometimes in the back seats as the AC duct below does not make any sense
- Bouncy drive between 10-25 Kms speed
- Bad Scorpio service Lackluster chaltha hey attitude gets worse every time , always with niggles , unresponsive
- Front glass shield susceptible to scratches - Jeep type design nothing can be done about it .
- Sensors All Scorpio cars have sensors problems - I had plenty
- Micro Hybrid did not work after I bought my car Had to be rectified
- TPMS works well with Nitrogen. Warning signs with normal air is seen . Normally + or - 2 degree accuracy
- Power window motors went down twice .( Was replaced under warranty ).
- Fuel Indicator In last 3 years , never shown the exact mileage as Low fuel starts ringing even with 20Lts of diesel in the car .
- With the three bar indicator we still have half of diesel in the car
- With one bar , we still have 15-20 Lts left in the car .
- The second row of seats will not go back if the 3rd row seat is flipped and closed up to make space .
- Seating for second and third row can be better .
- Plastics in the car can improve .
- The fit and finish of plastics in some places are not great .
- Rattling in the front console during neutral position
- The original sound system was pathetic , got it changed and have lost the control from the steering .
- Service intervals currently is 5Kms . Service interval should be 10K Kms .
- The gear knob shakes as if its going to fall down and does not inspire trust . Sound above 100Kms does come inside the cabin. Need better sound proofing . Can learn a few things from XUV architecture and build quality .
- Reduce the weight of the vehicle
- Add XUV engine of 140BHP( Why not a 6 Gear box for the SUV ? )
- Increase the length of the chassis by ½ feet .
- Introduce roof or pillar AC for better support ( India is becoming hot , cannot have AC duct down near the leg !!! with no offering for the third row )
- Body role mitigation Is better Tyre a option ?
- Turn radius is very bad , can be made better .
- Automatic temp controller inside .
- No need of a central console control system.
- Have a cluster based system where Audio buffs can change to a better Audio system .
- Separate out the System controls out with Audio / Navigation system
- Having invested in a 10 Lakh car , all would like to have a good audio system in the car ( Nippon and other cheap stuff ?? )
- Speaker placement for the car is bad in the front doors . Can do better work ( Check what is done in Innova )
- No space in the back . Can have a better seating in the 3rd row .
- Plastics all over the body can improve .
- Front Glass panel shape can change . Is not aerodynamic , rather tries to block the air and gets a lot of stone hit . ( I have three stone hits for my glass )
- Tail lamps can be better . ½ of it is pure luminary with no light . We call it as the centipede type with no usage .
