Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Dear Scorpio-N owners!
What is the latest software version available for the infotainment (Z8/Z8L)? My vehicle was recalled for few service actions which included SW update also, but the version remains the same and when enquired, Service Advisor informed me that mine already has the latest SW version (10.27.65).
Other owners may kindly confirm whether this SW version 10.27.65 is the latest?

My SA told me that relevant versions differ between Scorpio models. I have a Z8, and the latest SW version is 10.27.64. Its different for Z8L, Z6 etc.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

I'm hearing something about a suspension recall. Anyone have news on the matter?

Anyway, at least one of my shockers seems to have (not shockingly ��✌️) failed. 7k kms of sedate good road driving. Got my oil changed early today (4 months, 7k kms since purchase) and definitely wanted to look at the shocks given what happened with my Thar (3 were kaput.)

Lo and behold
Awaiting parts from Udaipur since Abu Road has no stock. Couldn't check for DTC or flash EMS either since there was neither a COTEK nor a laptop to facilitate today.

DEF utilization - reserves were at 41% after 7k kms. Looks like it consumes more than the Thar manual.

The 6L of synthetic oil at about 3k offers tremendous value though I'll be sticking to 10k or so for oil changes across both cars. The engine is much smoother now.

Lastly, the Coolant was down by a bit and took a top up. A half bottle of their OEM mix. Interestingly the thar has never had a top up in 45k kms.

Mahindra Scorpio-N Review-scorpionbooking.jpg

So that’s that. I’ll soon be overcompensating for my many shortcomings and boosting my frail ego with a big black SUV, then. Thrilled at the prospect of being an entitled prick in what seems like is going to be an infinity of time, bullying all and sundry out of my way. But then with the roads already rather full of these beasts, I wonder who gets the right of way when mine comes across another of the kind. I suppose whoever excels at honking skills? I’d lose. Or, a ‘Police’ sticker? Mine won’t. Anyway, I’ll reserve further self-deprecation and more on my ‘Big Daddy’ issues until I write about my purchase/ownership experience, I suppose

For me it was 20% at 10K service,
Currently it has reached 53% at 16.5Kms, it will be 10-20% @20K service (predominantly bangalore city driving)

On thing I am curious about is the fuel economy of AT variants,
I see a lot of youtube reviewers claiming higher figures but for me MID numbers range from 10.5-11.5 for the city and 12-14 on the highways, want inputs from other AT ScorpioN owner on their FE

Max covered 500 kms on xuv700 in a day and felt tired after that,drove scorpio N through night and day for 1200 kms and it was not at all tiring.
Did you feel any difference in the NVH between the two,
We recently got a XUV700 (AT) AWD in the family and I have scorpioN (AT), and both I & my brother I felt the higher revving noise and more apparent shifts in XUV compared to ScorpioN, Which was counter intuitive for me as I had the perception that XUV will more refined that the scropio

I was wondering as well.

In Bangalore traffic, I am getting 9.0-10.0 on the MID on D AT. I get on the higher side when I am on Zoom than when when I am on Zip. Yet to really drive on highways.

I am light on the foot pedal. For reference, my previous car Honda City P M, used to give me 11-12.

You are right.To my surprise also Scorpio N has better NVH levels as compared to XUV700.Scorpio N is more refined and we hardly hear engine noise inside the cabin, but it was quite apparent in XUV700.

The ScorpioN top-end model, i.e., Z8L, has better insulation than my Z4 AT DL. I may be wrong. Other owners can comment. Z4 AT DL cabin is decent but not as silent as Z8L. One can hear the diesel grunt/clatter. Insulation is better on top top-end model may be due to damping to support the 12-speaker Sony system I guess. I am planning to add damping material to the firewall.

You can always fix a huge metal bumper and some flood lights that are misaligned to blind the oncoming drivers. Add a lawyer sticker and a ruling party flag and you'll attain the final form.
By the way, congratulations on the booking, hope you get your SUV soon

The Ladder on frame Scorpio has higher GC than mono-c XUV700, as scorpio's frame sits much higher and they tuned it well to reduce the the noise levels, this was mentioned by Mr Velu in one of the youtube video that means Scorpio N has better NVH than XUV700.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

I have a D AT 2WD and in Bangalore ORR traffic I get anywhere between 10-12 kmpl if its not totally bumper-bumper traffic.

On highway trips, the maximum I have got is 14.5 from the MID. Was able to retain a 13.5 even with some pedal pushing which involved touching the 120 mark on multiple occasions.

I want to measure the mileage once in manual mode. Keep the speed around 90-100 and keep it in 6th gear and see what I can get. Not very hopeful though as ScorpioN down shifts automatically but will still give it a try.

I have never driven my car in any other mode apart from the default Zap mode. The guy who came for a demo also mentioned that it will work almost always.

Isn't it because in BoF passenger cabin can be further isolated from the vibrations of the frame, while monocoque can't as the body and frame are one and same? Of course, it all depends on the type of vehicle. A load bearing commercial usage tuned BoF vehicle will deliver more shocks/NVH to passengers, while comfort oriented/passenger carrying BoF vehicle will try to isolate the passengers (while getting called as floaty or lack of feel) more successfull than a monocoque vehicle.
