Price of petrol and diesel has almost reached similar levels
I live in NCR so diesels are a dying breed

Although I agree with the made statements, I have a few points:

1. The price difference between petrol and diesel is close to 13 rupees in Bangalore which is still good.
2. The 10 year rule is not yet applicable here but assuming it will come eventually. I don't plan to keep the car beyond that.
3. Have never faced regen even though my driving is mostly in city.
4. Plan to drive around 15K+ km every year.

But I get why some can be tempted to go with petrol

My annual running would be around 9000 kms, with 85% of it coming in city conditions. Some daily drives could be just within 6-7 kms radius.
I used to get DPF regen alerts on the console during initial 3 months of delivery, which normally would to go on the run (I never had to visit service center or call them for the same) and nowadays I don't see DPF alerts. My run is mostly City and occasional highway. And, I feel Mahindra has managed the DPF issue better than others.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Hey team, proud owner of a Deep Forest Scorpio N petrol.

Thought I'd share fuel figures.

My MID has been pretty accurate (on the highway), I'm talking within 0.2 Kmpl, give or take.

City:

8-9 Kmpl on average, comfort driving, tank to tank. A novice foot got around 7.34 Kmpl (tank to tank over approx 70 km in the city. I can milk the MID upto 10.5 Kmpl with a very judicious foot, even 11.5 without the a/c - these figures are per trip, not tank to tank. This is Hyderabad traffic, with occasional standstill traffic, bumper to bumper at most congestion points with a decent flow. With really bad traffic, I believe I'd still be getting 6.5-7.

Highway:

Average speed around 110 kmph - 9.5-10.5 Kmpl (this was when the engine was pretty fresh, no cruise control). Approx 500 km on the odo. (9.5 with a heavier foot, 10.5 going easy on the hard acceleration).

city-->highway-->village, even distribution, about 11.2 Kmpl.

At this point I started experimenting with cruise control.

Cruise control set to 93-97 kmph yields a fuel economy of 11.9 - 12.2 Kmpl. Didn't bother going any slower. Didn't bother going any faster either - my mileage foot was doing a better job at higher speeds.

My advise, redline you engines, not once or twice - run through the gears on a weekly basis, break in your engines. I've only been able to go at it hard myself on 3 different occasions on the ORR, but it is healthy for a new engine, trust me. Source - Automotive Engineer, lol.

I hope this this is information is a value add.

Mine is Diesel Z8L AT 4x4 purchased in December 2022 and wireless Apple carplay started working few months back. Not sure when it got updated.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Hi Everyone,

I have taken delivery of my Scorpio-N Z8 P AT a week back. So far I have done 300 kms, and its has been a joy.

Till now gear shifts used to happen below 2000 rpm, But so far it has been within city traffic only. Yesterday I took it to highway and did speeds till 100 km/h, and all was fine there too. Today morning onwards, I have noticed that the gear shifts are happening a bit late, means 2000-2200 rpm, especially noticeable during 1st-2nd and 2nd-3rd gears.

Has anyone else experienced this type of behavior? What is the rpm at which normally it shifts? This is specifically for Petrol vehicle.

Thanks in advance

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Hi All,

Yesterday night, I installed auxiliary lights - Aozoom TH02 in my Scorpio-N Z8 AT as I was not very convinced with the stock light setup. Here are some pics from the setup.

Mahindra Scorpio-N Review-b9d40fe84c634452978afc8c5c5763a7.jpeg

Mahindra Scorpio-N Review-img_1086.jpeg

Mahindra Scorpio-N Review-img_1087.jpeg

Mahindra Scorpio-N Review-img_1089.jpeg

The installer connected the lights directly without a relay, using a cheap switch and tapping into the fuse box. Although these lamps are beautiful, I couldn't use them for even one night. After driving for an hour or so, I could smell that something was burning. As soon as I tried to turn off the lamps, the switch stopped working, and the click noise and feel were gone. I suspect the switch got burnt. Anyways, I pulled the car to the service lane and disconnected the fuse tap to kill the circuit.

I have a query here: How should I wire it, and do I need a relay? If anyone has installed something similar, can you please guide me on which fuse to tap for signal, which relay to use (links would be great), and any suggestion for a good quality switch.

Thanks!

Irrespective of what wattage of Aux lighting you use, always use a relay.

Regarding suggestion, there is an original Hella Aux Lamp wiring kit available with all hella distributors. It isn't expensive either, only some 1100 bucks.

It has all the wires needed along with a good quality relay. I have used the same to install Hell Black Magic 20 inch bar on my hilux.

Just wanted to check if the cross braces on which the lights are mounted are there before installation? The airbag crash sensors are generally placed there and hope these donít affect the functionality.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Wanted to check one thing: some reviews of Australian car keeps mentioning GC as 227mm while those in India keep saying it is 187mm which is lower than even XUV700.

Anyone investigated why this discrepancy? Doesn't seem to be unladen vs laden thing.

The airbag sensors are located on the metal bar thats above the auxiliary lights. Lower Bar does not have any sensor, its just the head of Ladder.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Need some suggestion.

Anyone with fabric seats (Z2,Z4,Z6) put seat covers in their ScorpioN ?

Do you think keeping fabric seats are better than seat covers or vice versa ?

Before visiting any shops, inquire whether they have experience with similar tasks. Speak to their references to gather feedback. Some shops may inadvertently damage the wiring, possibly by cutting wires without informing you. It's crucial that the accessory shop is skilled in installing auxiliary lights. If uncertain, consider seeking alternative recommendations to find a reliable place for the job., glad you pulled out the fuse at right time. find out from the service centre if they know how to do this job.

I've used two Hella relays, both burnt out, pathetic experience.

Use this kit. https://www.amazon.in/VAISHNU-LIGHT-...ef_=ast_sto_dp

Their products are extremely high quality and went strong for almost 3 years before I sold off the old car.

Once you add seat covers that are not of slip on type that are lose fitting and wrinkled (also uncomfortable), the bucket type fitting will damage the fabric seat covers from the factory anyway. So, better to retain stock fabric seats for sometime unless:

1. Stock seat cushioning is not to your preference.

2. The chances of spills etc are higher (or more frequent) in your car. Fabric seats have absorbing nature and spills can cause odour in the long run.

Another aspect to consider is that fabric seats are more comfortable to use during summers when it is punishing to sit on cars with PU/ leather seat covers. Only high quality pure leather seat covers provide respite during peak summers, especially in North India.
