I feel this is a good number for a car this size. The car shifts into 7th gear at 90 kmph, and thatís probably why you would get the best mileage just above 90 kmph. Another thing to note was that the car was at most ease after shifting into 7th, and was at about 1700 RPM at 95 kmph.
I do not understand the 7th gear. Isn't the automatic gear box having 6 speed transmission? Am I missing something?

Yes I meant the 6th. Sorry, I did not notice the mistake when I typed. Thanks for pointing out.

[quote=MealReelWheels;5443318]Dear mpp1, I also have a Z8L Manual Petrol 7 str which I got delivered on 16th October (on my son's birthday - a tradition that my dad started when he bought his first car - Hyundai Santro on my birthday two decades ago).

Congrats!

How do you like the lack of real space in the 3rd row, and even the non-movable 2nd row? I have all ages of people in the car whenever I take out my mother for short trips around town, from 20's through mid 60's. The older people love getting in and out of my XL6 right now, I'm not sure if the N is going to be as easy to get in and out of. This is a genuine worry for me, would love your real world input. TIA

I got my parents (aged 70 plus and 60 plus with no knee problems, touchwood) to check out ingress/egress from the N during our test drive and they were quite happy with it and praised the side step provided. It was no different for them from climbing a normal step at our homes. This was also one of my concerns before booking the vehicle and I was glad they were good with it.

Coming to the 3rd row space, I am 5.9 and found it difficult to sit in there - can do it if absolutely needed but knees were brushing against the mid row backsides. However, for someone who is less than 5.3, I feel the space is adequate for 2 people. My kids were fine there although given a choice they would never sit in the 3rd row of any vehicle. Hope it helps.

Ease for older people: The foot rest and the grab handles are useful (read mandatory for this high a vehicle) but with its height, Scorpio N is not best suited for elderlies, especially with knee problems. They may face issues.

Third Row: For me, the third row is for my dog (a full size Golden Retriever) who has enough room to get up, turn and sleep during a trip. There is no AC vent but second row AC works pretty good and my dog hasn't complained yet! Only once, we went to a party with our friends and my car could easily take 6 adults and two kids (<10 yrs). The adult in the third row wasn't very happy so yeah, it is best suited for kids and short trips.

I think XUV 700 may be more practical for you. I suggest you to take your older family members and seek their feedback before buying anything. For me, it's just "hum do humare do"!

However, everybody just loves the ample window space (with a small sunroof) it gives though (huge windows.. even the quarter glass on the third row is big) ... very useful in long /scenic trips. No claustrophobia at all.

Hope this helps you to decide!

Hi @Kosfactor Sorry for the delay. It's been a bit crazy at work with the year end drawing closer. Of course! Here you are. Please pardon the dirt. It was right after a long drive and I didnt get a chance to clean. Mahindra Scorpio-N Review-mat-1.jpg

Mahindra silently issues an inspection/recall for Scorpio N & XUV700



Mahindra has issued an inspection and recall drive for the manual transmission variants of Scorpio N and XUV700 manufactured between 1st July-11th November 2022. It has been stated that there could be an issue with the bell housingís rubber grommets which can potential cause premature clutch issues/failures.

Attaching the press release for the same below.

Exactly, I don't think it's a good choice either because even at 50, I was having trouble crawling in to the 3rd row but then I can stand to lost 20-40 kilos

The Hyryder has made a very positive impression on me, I know not the same car but that will serve the MPV aspect of my purchase and I wouldn't have to worry that much for resale. I'd be compromising on the MT and the cost but let's see what tomorrow(literally) brings.

I really really want to like this vehicle, but that horrible rear end.
Every time I see it an oversized WagonR comes to mind.
What was Mahindra thinking?

Same here , crazy work these days. Thanks for the pictures , it gives a fair idea about that to expect when it comes to the maintenance of these mats. With no stoppage in rains these days, I have temporarily given up on keeping the vehicles clean

Is the Scorpio N compliant with the BS6 stage 2 norms that come into effect in April 2023?

My expected delivery date is March-April 2023. Was curious what happens in this case.

Furthermore, I think all the non Z8L folks are paying through their anxiety and uncertainty. And this uncertainty seems to extend after purchase also.

So is it really 'VFM" ?

All my initial enthusiasm is gone, and I am pretty close to cancelling my booking. For some reason, even the existing owners who are reporting niggles look like benevolent souls who are okay with what is on offer by M&M.
Booked the new Innova today. So now sailing on two boats

I think the Hycross seems to be a really solid product and would be giving serious competition to proper and psuedo SUVs a run for their money. A lot will depend on how Toyota prices the car though.

It seems to be great product. However, it will be a segment of it's own as I would like to believe that the top end of Hycross will be a good 10L more than the top end of XUVs and Scorpio Ns.
