That said, I am not a fan of the Scorpio anyway and I would second what has already been said - the top varian would be hit very badly.

Finally, what will M & M do to increase the legspace in the middle row to give a modicum of business class leg space that it's erstwhile competitors offer ? Increasing wheelbase will cost them millions. Innova et al offer fantastic legspace along with other goodies like a roof mounted AC's / Blowers, ABS, Airbags etc. Plonking an unsophisticated engine without bells and whistles may get the numbers temporarily but passenger comfort, ride quality & safety will get M & M long term relationship, sales, image and repeat customers. A few kms drive in a Toyota will suffice to know what quality switchgear, ergonomics, NVH etc is all about. Tinker with the Scorpio for bettering it in every possible way. No fake Hood vents, no silly sticker jobs / paint jobs.
M & M should leave the bottom end to the Boleros, which is doing the job very good. Give the respect Scorpio deserves.

M&M is hell bent on cashing on on its only flagship model nowadays...Bolero is definitely losing its ground ...with very few takers!
So its turned head towards the Scorpio...which anyways has found some ground in the taxi markets...go to the hills...you'll find a no. of Scorpios lined up...though you wont see any safaris.
Seems like we have another Sumo in the making...

Saw a Scorp with yellow plates yesterday on the Marathalli flyover last evening. Had no side cladding, and had black bumpers. The vehicle itself was white coloured.
Couldnt see if it was the M2Di as it was coming towards me. Sadly, the demise of the Scorpio image has just been started.

I saw the Scorpio M2di at Borivali in Mumbai today. Going by the registration number, it was 30-45 days old. I could not have a closer look as it took the flyover & I went below it. I wonder how M&M did not advertise the launch of this variant. I suppose it has a naturally aspirated engine. Am I right? Also, are any more specs available?

Deliveries have started in the NCR as well it seems. Just followed one on NH8 with temp plates and the ribbon - dark red/maroonish color, probably just out of the showroom a day back.......M2DI on the right rear.
There's no tangible difference from the rear or the sides (apart from absence of cladding) or even the front (whatever I saw in my mirrors) and I guess there's only one variant since it didn't have any other badging.

10,986 mahindra UVs ( includes scorpio + bolero range ) sold in May 07 , as against 8945 last year.
Bolero is definitely not losing ground
