Z4 does since it's the same system as the Thar. Z8L does not since a different system.

Thanks for the insight. I did check out some numbers regarding this. Attaching it here in case it helps anyone. I believe quite a few will be inclined to change the steel wheels to alloys and the rubber as well.
Tramlining or weighted steering parameters is something I do not comprehend properly hence will not consider it as far as this chart is concerned.

Mods: Request you to please shift this response to the ' Tyre & wheel upgrade thread' in case you deem fit. I did try to ascertain if the infographic below had been posted earlier but I could have missed it.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Is it possible to deactivate both the Follow Me Home Lamp (FMH) and the Lead Me To Vehicle Lamp (LMV) for a rain and light sensor equipped variant like the Z8L?

The user manual suggests methods to temporarily disable these functions, but I would like to know if these can be permanently disabled.

I am getting constant 10 KMPL in MID in City traffic, 30-40% crawling and halting, rest smooth but everything under 60-70 kmph speed, adjusting it to real world will translate to ~8.5-9kmpl in city, and getting 13.3kmpl (on MID) on highways using cruise control with 85-90 speed.
Driven enthusiastically with constant up and downshifts and cutting across vehicles at speed upto 120kmph had 11.2 on MID (~10-10.5 kmpl realistically).

City: Drive twice a week to Bellandur, Bangalore, City is 8 kmpl, one person, AC on, stretch notorious for bad traffic jams and added to that recent ongoing metro work.
Highway: Did a 550 kms trip yesterday from BLR-Tirumala-Blr. 3 people onboard and light luggage, gave a decent 13 kmpl. 90-100 kmph, occasionally crossed 100 kmph for short bursts. Didnt engage cruise control. Light traffic through out.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Continental have recently launched Cross Contact AX6 AT tyres in OEM size (255/60 R18). Found this info on a facebook group.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

While I've already booked mine in Deep Forest, went for just another test drive. The experience with Narain Mahindra (SA Nikhil) and forum feedback on my vehicle/variant thread and poll have been instrumental to my booking.

There were two major differences here:
1) The TD rig was serviced this time so performed really well (Z8L 4WD MT)

2) Took my dad along to clear all the doubts my parents were having on where I'm betting my money

Here are some pictures with a short summary following:

Mahindra Scorpio-N Review-444610f1583b41e3b7e7149ef99d453d.jpeg

The Good:
-The engine is excellent (enough has been said about it)
-The MT transmission clutch was so light and responsive that a manual hater like me could live with it.
There is a very clear bite point which let's you know exactly when the power will engage.
I could slot in the 6th as low as 45 kph
-Despite being a TD vehicle, it was showing 11.6 kmpl in city. Isn't that impressive?
-Very good NVH control. Can't hear a thing outside and can't hear the engine under 2000 rpm
-Presence. Traffic never stops for you on the Lucknow-Kanpur Amausi Road. Well, here it did
-Front parking sensors are boon in the city and front camera is really useful for hills and offroading
-Steering can be used with a single finger (even with my fragile hands). Weighs up nicely when going fast
-During a U-turn, there was a squeal, the traction light blinked and whatever little doubts I had about the vehicle were washed away instantly
-Seats were very comfortable and the visibility is excellent. I can drive this for 16 hours easily
-Quite a nice range of colour options. There's something for everyone
-The Sony audio is very nice. Could only test bollywood radio trash on it. Can't wait to play real music and some bangin' tunes

The bad (I am mostly nitpicking):
-I am 5' 1" and usually put the seat at maximum height. I cannot do that with the MT as the clutch is set in really deep and has a lot of travel.
The moment I set the height up, the steering rubs against my stomach. Maybe Mahindra is telling me to lose weight
-I wish there was 4WD for petrol
-Come on Mahindra, how hard can it be to have 1) Apple Carplay at launch 2) Put two more cameras on the mirror (I think I'll get an aftermarket solution to this)
-Everybody is getting ventilated seats at half the price. It is not a necessity for me but would have been a nice touch
-It could have been about 20cm longer to actually match up with Fortuner and Endeavour
-Departure angle sucks

My parents are regular people and not enthusiasts so they aren't usually bothered about cars. But thanks to a certain influence at home, they are instantly able to identify vehicles and brands, even ones not sold here.
So, as I took my dad along for the test drive, some comments by him:
-Is it really a Scorpio? It is really refined
-Back seats are really nice
-Speed bump was barely felt at 50 kph
-AC was comfortably cold even with the sunroof open
-Towering above hatchbacks and sedans is a great feeling

Basically my parents always say spending so much on a vehicle as a waste. But this time, all dad said to me was "good choice".
Even my mom (sedan person, has a disdain for SUVs and their owners) said only good things about the Scorpio-N.

Guess it's match made in heaven. Can't wait for the delivery in December

Booked Z8L 4WD AT. Requested SA to get me one exactly in December because of my evil master plan.

I'm hearing different things from different people about waiting period on different models.
Mahindra has perfected chaos.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

You should reach out to the SA. Mine was the same case, I booked on 11 Feb and Iíll be taking delivery next week. The vehicle arrived at the stockyard on 27 Feb whereas the website tracking and confirmation email mentioned 10 months and 4 months respectively.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Is there any idea that the Z6 BS6 phase 2 will be delivered on introductory prices or the prices will increase accordingly.

The latest brochure from M&M site and the local dealer both say different.

Will reconfirm when I visit them this weekend
