I guess once the spare tire gets put on there the rear will look better.

You said it, Have you seen the handful of Mahindra Scorpios with a spare wheel on the rear tail gate? They look simply delicious

Hmmm Nice Looking Car. The Rear End looks a bit Shabby BUT lets see how it turns out to be.

Good looking SUV - very muscular. I like the rear light cluster more than the old Disco's. Obviously, as you guys are saying, relocation of the spare tyre on the tailgate will make it look better. Nice interiors too.
What about the engine? Jaguar 4.2L Supercharged V8 390bhp?

Hey GTO, u talkin abt the silver/gray Rio Design Scorpio with the huge grille?? Yes it does look good.

BTW, heres a Cayenne with the tyre mounted on the rear gate. Looks good and muscular.

This Cayenne job looks well-executed, but I dont like the look of it. I would much prefer the look of a regular Porsche Cayenne
