Editorial Test Drive Review of Mahindra Scorpio

 The Scorpio has been around for a long time and has carved itself a fan-following.  The car looks very imposing and intimidating. It has chrome tipped Mahindra logo at the front on the grill and huge bumper sporting the fog lamps add to the muscular profile of the car. The side profile shows off the flared wheel arches and there is a chrome step up to climb into the car and chrome tipped roof rails adorn this menacing SUV. 

 
Mahindra has well improved the Scorpio over the years and now the interiors have an up-market feel to it. The Scorpio SUV has cruise control, steering mounted audio controls, 4 speaker stereo music system with USB, MP3, Aux-in and Bluetooth compatibilities. The car has acceptable interior build quality and fit and finish is on par with the rivals from its segment
 
It has comfortable seating which provide excellent support to the back and has dual-tone interior and upholstery. It also has a huge 1243 liters of storage space which is sufficient to carry luggage for family on a road trip.
 
Mahindra removed the old 2.6 liter CRDi engine and introduced the new mHawk engine which develops the same amount of power as the older, larger capacity unit.The new Scorpio mHawk engine develops 127 BHP and 290 NM of torque which is available as low down as 1800 RPM. It delivers an ARAI certified fuel efficiency of 13 kmpl.
 
Mahindra has had an excellent suspension tuner at hand: Lotus. They have time and again tuned the suspension of this SUV and have made the latest iterant a confident handler and a pleasurable drive for the regular buyer and the enthusiast alike. It has a comfortable drive and good ride quality making it a pleasure to drive around the city and potholed roads. 
 
With prices starting at Rs 7.5 laksh for the base diesel to12.8 lakhs for the top automatic diesel variant, the Scorpio is decent value. For a detailed analysis read below.
