Apologies, but my brain interprets the xylo as an oversized sperm whale.

Todays et says the 2.6 is being discontinued and the 2.2 is replacing everything. 2 issues. Is the 2.2 plus abs good to throw the extra money down on and how much extra is it going to be?

congrats man
however you said u need it for 1 to 1 1/2 years
heres my reasoning-new scorpio is released yesterday
the 2.6 engine is gone only 2.2 m hawk now
if i were u there are lots of used good 2.6 scorpios available for 5 lakh
if i were you i would have gone for a second hand scorpio
after 1 1/2 years your new 8.5 lakh scorpio is going to loose 3 lakhs when you sell it cause outdated engine and old model whereas the secondhand one you will loose max 1 to 1.5 lakh

Hey RedLiner,
Congrats on the Scorpio. Why are you still thinking?
Stop thinking buddy, i am sure you are going nuts.
If you still plan to think, do it in lines of Bolero
Keep us posted anyways!

From a search that started with a sub 3 lakh car to a brand new Scorpio, quite a long way! Good for you, that's a nice beast to have!

Well, I wanted to get a used car, but when I saw all the used cars on offer, found them to be over priced junk. I did not want a sedan. So the only ones I could look at were the low-cost SUV types. Those available on the used market were pretty much junk. Then I decided to upgrade to a new Bolero. Then as I dilly dallied, the CRDE Bolero was launched. I dithered some more. Then the prices of the Scorpio dropped. I dithered even more. Then they launched the Mhawk across all variants.

I have decided to go for an Mhawk, and the prices right now are pretty much better VFM as opposed to a few months back.

Whew! Its because I thought and read and thought and dithered, that I finally have reached a point - and have booked the Mhawk SLE.

You're right. However, I was still after the sales guys for reduced prices on the old stocks...but knowing Mahindra, they will not let it go for less than 20k discount at the maximum. Furthermore, I find people still buying the old stock on account of its looks. I found both to be similarly ugly.

Well, cheers to my financier.

Nope - just booked. Will take 3 weeks. Going in for the Refresh version.

How about you? I have done more checking on the bolero and apparently 50% of the owners I spoke to were not happy about the comfort provided during longer drives. The seats in the Refresh scorpio have been bolstered further as compared to the older one. The Bolero seats in comparison feels like a used office chair. Use your dithering in good stead.

Even I'm in the same boat. I at one point had gone to the showroom with my cheque book to make the down payment but the sales guy did some goof - up and I came back without paying. That was Mid - February. Since then situation changed drastically at the domestic front and I had to pay close to 3 Lacs as cash for something(s) (This was the money for my car).

Now that when I was getting ready for my car, Mahindra launched the M-Hawk. Went and TD the old LX and both me and my wife found it very uncomfortable. Gear lever position was the worst. Wifey liked the new one better in terms of interior cabin space and the driver position (don't ask me why as I'm equally perplexed). In our TBHP meet last sunday, she liked getsurya's Scorpio VLX but the price has dampened her spirit.

Haven't TD the M-Hawk so don't know. To add to the confusion my specially ordered Black Bolero VLX is still enroute for the last 25 days (some bugger called from the dealer and said it's enroute so I should come and pay the deposit. Yah! Right!!!).

In my heart of hearts, I'm sold on the Bolero's look ( old one was good, new one is a bit of a softy). My wife likes it for the driving position and road presence. All I now hope that "THE" Black Bolero VLX comes fast and ends my dithering.
