Is there an option to opt out? And how much rebate you got for opting out?

For a fact the Mhawk does have the turbo lag and I can bet anything on that.

cyberpatrol was comparing the Mhawk to the older Safari TCIC and not the new gen Dicor 2.2.

Folks if you ask me technically is there a turbo lag? , yah sure upto 1.7k rpm . VTT or any other tech. , there is no magic, the TC has to spool up to a significant rpm to do the needful.

Does this impact the way the scorp. takes off from the starting block? , hell no - again IMHO, it all depends on the driving style.

After flooring it,i could yawn a couple of times before the TCIC dialed in 2k rpm and there was any upward movement of the speedo.

Congrats on the buy and sorry to hear about the demise.

I was checking out the pictures and find a "Gadget" with some power cords + USB slot above the rear AC vents. What is that?

Regards

Wow congrats again. The front shot looks aggressive and meaty. The color combo would look even better with the light green/gray M&M host on their Scorpios.

I have a few issues with the design of the Scorpio, especially with ergonomics and interior space but absolutely no complaints about the engine. I don't feel any turbo lag. I have gone up the Mettupalayam => Ooty Ghats a couple of times with a full complement of passengers and the Scorpio flew up the ghats.

Same here! atleast someone feels like me!

I feel scorpio has the least turbo lag among diesels in this price & that is why everybody loves this engine.

I recently drove one beat up old scorpio all the way up Rohtang Pass with a FULL complement of passengers read Family and associated luggage read Kids. The vehicle had over 1Lac on the odo but climbed up easily without any extra effort whatsoever. You are right, the 2.2L M-hawk is one of the best engines that there are available at the asking price and most folks buy the scorpio for the engine.

Oh, i checked just now! Mahindra has omitted the stock ICE from the SLE.

That makes the SLE even more desirable now!
