Re: Next-gen Mahindra Scorpio | Now revealed as Scorpio-N

The excitement surrounding the new Scorpio is very much encouraging. It seems that the Indian cars have come long way towards maturity. So India is going towards china way. Only desi cars will rule.
After Ford’s exit, foreign car brads are really struggling in India for a foot hold. Market share of Suzuki is decreasing and TATA and Mahindra are fast filling the void. Force motors already captured the passenger vehicle market with its humble ‘Tempo Traveler’. Gurkha generated a storm after the launch of its makeover. A very encouraging scenario.

I heard that the front seats are ventilated. Can you please confirm?
Also will the top end 4x4 AT be available with Petrol? I was told that the Top 4x4 AT will be offered in Diesel Only. Can you please confirm?
TIA.

Re: Next-gen Mahindra Scorpio | Now revealed as Scorpio-N

Loving all the details made available so far on the forum. Looks like a winner already.
My preference would be 4x4 MT Diesel in top trim.

Mr. Mahindra please take all my money ��

Re: Next-gen Mahindra Scorpio | Now revealed as Scorpio-N

The features and specifications looks really exciting. I will be in Market for a Automatic SUV in 2-3 years and Scorpio-N looks very tempting.

Hope they price it well and prices remain flat for few years.

Being one of the early adaptor of the CRDE Scorpio in 2007, I have learnt a lesson to wait at least for 2 years before buying Mahindra products.

Regards

Come to think of it, the exact word used for the terrain modes was something else. Started with 4(Four). Will get this fully confirmed.

5-door Thar is still on the plans. How they will fit that in between the Scorpio Classic, Thar, Scorpio-N and the 7OO remains to be seen.

Taken from the boot camp for the Scorpio-N which ended very recently (in the first week of June).


Will get back for the rest of the queries after confirmation. Hopefully by tonight.

I doubt if there will be any significant cross-shopping between the Scorpio-N and the XUV 7OO, just like it did not happen across the current gen Scorpio and the XUV 5OO. The clientele for a sophisticated, well-handling, feature-laden, contemporary crossover is highly unlikely to consider a ladder-frame SUV with oodles of body roll (yes, that is inherent to BoFs, whatever you do the suspension), and vice versa. Only time will tell

And boy, am I GLAD that the low-range gearbox stays

Scorpio-N is said to be based on Thar platform and will come in both Petrol and diesel with MT and AT transmission..

5-door Thar should rival the Jeep Rubicon and will be a different ball game than Scorpio if that happens.

Thank you for the wonderful updates.

Another question if you may afford adding to the list: Any news on the Air Conditioner vents in the third row?

Re: Next-gen Mahindra Scorpio | Now revealed as Scorpio-N

Really wonderful to read this thread. Keenly awaiting the launch and if really good would be booking one as well. The only concern I have is niggles that the initial batches have. But it is compensated by their service & support.

Thanks @RavenAvi and @Birdie

Re: Next-gen Mahindra Scorpio | Now revealed as Scorpio-N

The spec leak sounds promising. Ticks so far all the right boxes for me. A no nonsense (read ADAS stuff), muscular, A/4WD, Cruise Control, sorted out ride around 20 lakhs that too a Desi made car!

Btw, isn't this spec and price directly routing for potential Innova Crysta buyers? I will choose this over Innova Crysta anytime. I have 2013 Innova, and I had Scorpio 2006 and surely, this new Scorpio-N will match the new Innova in terms of value and reliability.

Only if they iron out issues before launch and not after launch, with us being the paid testers (the other way, we pay Mahindra to test their vehicles).

I really would like to go for the 4WD Diesel Auto as both the delivery of the XUV 700 and Thar is not even seen in the horizon. The only concern the initial trouble Mahindras are notorious for.

While typing here, checking with the M&M sales person but he is tight lipped on various questions asked. Even asked for unofficial booking and no favorable response.

Based on what I saw on test vehicles it has proper 4x4 with electronic shifter, unlike the manual shifter of Thar.

Good wheel articulation, just wish MLD is part of package.
