Assuming the audio setup is similar to XUV700, the luxury variant comes with a 13-channel amplifier which will most likely be absent in the lower trim. What you can do if you donít want to mess with wiring is upgrade the co-axials to better quality ones such as the JL audio C1 and get proper damping in all doors. That will improve the audio quality significantly.

As for Adrenox, Mahindra doesnít seem to be putting in artificial limits to the adrenox features, all limitations between variants are strictly hardware related, such as AT or EPB being required for remote start.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

I feel you bro but 3 point seat belts can be retrofitted. Even the XUV 300 which used to come with 3 point seat belts now a days comes with a lap belt and these can be professionally installed. Check out youtube.

Most disappointing deal breaker for me is the absence of the curtain airbag coverage for the third row.

This half curtain airbag in the top end Z8 is what people get for a Rs 2.4lakh premium over the Z6. Velu sir are you reading this?

And this is the place where kids sit and there is no airbag coverage or a 3 point seat belt for the 2nd row middle seat.


It is going to probably going to cost a 10K extra for the manufacturer but then why short change the kids.

For me a sure dealbreaker. Initial response might be huge bookings on day1 but demand is no where going to be what we saw for the 7OO. The pricing is ridiculous for the automatics/4x4/z8.

Z6 petrol 2wd would have been the best vfm but then....

Am I the only one who misses those booklets?

If you are quoting the youtube ETU guy, trust me ignore the banter from these guys. These youtube vlogger guys get free stuff from karol bagh guys to bad mouth and push inferior chinese accessories. Please google paper cone speakers and they are more premium and have better acoustics. I feel you get the message, they price in calling themselves influencers for a reason :-)

I have added Z8L D AT 4x4 in my cart but had a query in mind about the 12 speaker system. I have seen videos where the Sony speakers are of inferior quality and many XUV7OO owners have upgraded their speakers for better output.

Considering the design of Scorpio N with side opening door, initially Mahindra's thought process might be to add side facing seat, which can happen in future based on market research. But providing curtain airbags till 3rd row would mean, when the airbags deploy and explode to inflate, it might end up causing sever injury to 3rd row side facing passenger. Now designing 2 different curtain airbag system would mean lot of moving parts and control variable, which might necessitate additional crash testing for homologation for them to receive type approval. This exercise is a lot expensive. This probably might be the reason why they skipped the 3rd curtain airbag.

Thanks,
Sid

Side facing rear seats cannot happen, as they are not compatible with the GNCAP crash test protocol. Even with the Thar, Mahindra had discontinued the model with the side facing seats right before the 4 star rating was publicly announced.

Regarding the seat belts, AFAIK you can't sell a car in India without seat belts for front facing passengers. I'm sure that the ScorpioN also has one. But I agree about the e-brochures. And the worst thing is that since the brochures are size optimised for sending through whatsapp, the image quality is terrible. So when you zoom in to see the pics, you see this:

Come on guys, at least have a high res version available for download..

Looking at the dimensions and how little boot space is left after the third row in the ScorpioN, I think that it was initially designed with the side facing seats in mind as a 5+2, likely because they wanted shorter overhangs for better off-road performance, and didn't want to go overboard on the wheelbase for the same reason. Remember that the new Thar and the ScorpioN were designed side by side with same drivetrains and share the same chassis as well, only longer or shorter.

The Thar was also initially offered with the side facing seats but when they were warned that it would severely drop the GNCAP ratings, they simply stopped the base models that had them. There are also several test ScorpioNs still running around with side facing seats, probably early prototypes, which were caught on spy shots.

The width of the ScorpioN means that the side facing seats would have had more space than in in the older Scorpio or TUV, and the area in between would have been sufficient to offer good luggage space as well, especially at first glance. This would also explain the lack of amenities for the third row, like dedicated AC vents.

Another thing that severely limited Mahindra is their pricing. They had to undercut the XUV700 as it was a more premium product, but they also had to do it while retaining the 7 seats value proposition. IMO this has forced them to hold off on some features till the next revision, like better comfort for 3rd row passengers, or a more flexible seating arrangement, like split seats in 3rd row, or additional AC vents, and yes, full airbags. I'm thinking that they're already evaluating the user feedback on this and are on the drawing board for the next revision, so don't be shy with your feedback, guys..

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

How does one know what their position of booking is or if they are in the 25000 - are the booking numbers going to be in serial order?

From what I can recall after reading the experiences from XUV7OO bookings, both BUY button and price could be deactivated after 25K bookings are done.

I am not 100% sure but anyone here with XUV7OO booking experience can confirm

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

Within 30 sec of 11am, got the message all spots are booked, your booking will now be in general category (or something), and then bad gateway so payment wouldn't go through.

MOD NOTE : Please go through Posting Etiquettes before making any further post on Team-BHP.

Re: Mahindra Scorpio-N Review

They can’t be serious. Clicked exactly when the booking opened. It said bad gateway and then just woosh.

I am certain it’s the 700 booking process all over again.

You can clearly see the time of orders being full.
