The Scorpio with it’s boxy dimensions has a very aggressive appearance that is well suited to SUVs. The frame less front grille with the silver claw mark design pay tribute to the company’s badge.

Unfortunate Buyer Of Scorpio Mhawk
Posted on 19 Sep 08 at 3:26 am

Pros Great appeal,looks etc.

Cons pathetic travelling comfort,cramped interiors which makes driving anight mare

Few months back I have decided to upgrade myself from my old lancer to an SUV. With this intention I spend most of my valuable time surfing in internet and enquiring about available vehicles in the market. One day I got the news about the new launch of Mahindra Scorpio M Hawk. Whenever I enquired about Scorpio, many of my friends who owned Scorpios had discouraged me. They pointed me about the bouncy and scary drive of Scorpios. Even a few people, whom I knew personally, have died in Scorpio accidents. But I noticed one of the reviews about M hawk that it has a tweaked suspension and also ABS. It also specified that its the best Scorpio yet. I got interested with the new salient features of the vehicle and I waited for the vehicle to be launched in Kerala. After waiting for a few days I purchased a brand new Scorpio M Hawk Vlx on 11-2-08 from TVS Motors Kottayam. Now I would come straight away into my issues. From the day one onwards I am totally disappointed and unsatisfied about the vehicles performance in terms of mileage, suspension and passengers comfort. As per my understanding an SUV is a kind of vehicle which gives superior riding and driving comfort both in good roads as well as off roads. But I had an opposite experience. My vehicle has run around 8000 Km till date. The particular vehicle is trembling and wobbling like any thing. Even the gear lever is vibrating and many times I found it very hard to operate. Literally I feel that whenever I drove the vehicle it resembled a truck or a bullock cart. We cannot call it as a family car at all as we are troubled by severe neck and back pain.Also the shapeless door handle makes the drivers legs painfull and cramped. I also have put maximum effort from my end to rectify the issues like rattling, wobbling and bouncing. Even I have placed a 130 kg weighed iron bar at the rear side to prevent wobbling and bouncing. I have taken the vehicle to the TVS Work shop thrice with these issues. They noticed that the seats were also trembling and one of the door of the brand new vehicle had rattling noises. They have loosened the multilink and adjusted it. Also they have changed the gear liver assembly to reduce the hardness .Still there was no use. I have droved the vehicle in the company specified tyre pressures. (32 PSI Front & Rear). I have also checked it by lowering the air pressure one by one till 27 PSI. Even I tried nitrogen instead of air for three days. But there was no use. The situation was the same. Keeping all these in mind I have done a comparative study by driving almost all utility vehicles available like Tata Safari Dicor 2.2 VTT, Toyota Innova, Qualis, Chevrolet Tavera, Sumo Grande, Old Scorpio Turbo, Bolero., Sumo Victa etc. As a result of this I would like to declare that undoubtedly the Scorpio M hawk is the worst in terms of comfort and easy drive To conclude I would suggest M&M to market Scorpio M Hawk as a goods carriage vehicle rather than selling the vehicle as a passenger vehicle at a huge price that too with totally useless things like cruise control , driver side anti pinch window, incorrect tyre tonics etc. Anoop R, 9895808353 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- « Hondas new CR-V with 2.0L engineRoyal Enfield Fuel Injection engine » --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mahindra Scorpio AT : Detailed Review
Posted on 30 Oct 09 at 5:53 pm

Pros all

Cons none

Mahindra & Mahindra have made another addition to its product range, with the all new Scorpio Automatic. The first automatic SUV by the Mahindra group, featuring a six speed gear box and powerful 2.2 litre mHawk engine.Some say that it is a SUV that should have an automatic transmission is not worth it or while some say that the scorpio is at best with a manual transmission, but there is no denying the fact this Scorpio AT is the most city friendly of all the SUVs.Other nfeatures same as the SCorpio Manual and plus the added Auto-Transmission makes it easy to maneuver the SUV in traffic More about the designs, engine, safety features and variants of Scorpio Automatic, are gives as follows Design and Interior The design of the Scorpio Automatic is same as that of the first Scorpio, designed way back in 2002. It has a four-door SUV wagon,a separate frame and three-row seating, which can have up to seven people. Scorpio Automatic has a fully electronically controlled gearbox which enables greater maneuvering. The new model is designed to suit the city driving conditions. Engine The 120bhp 2.2L engine gets a six speed automatic made by Drivetrain International Systems in Australia. Scorpio Automatic has an intelligent driving mode to make driving a pleasurable experience, even in situations such as stop-and-go traffic, slippery roads and steep inclines.Other features include antilock brakes, rear-obstacle detection, auto-on headlamps and even rain-sensing wipers. The mHawk Scorpio automatic has the ability to cover 60 kmph in 6 seconds and touch 100 kmph in just 15 seconds. The shifting of gears takes place at low revs (2000-2500 rpm) , and the engine feels relaxed even at 120 kmhr. As far as fuel efficiency is concerned, the Scorpio At gives a mileage of 12.7 kmpl on highways and 10.2 kmpl on city roads. The acceleration is a bit better than the manual version. The VLX model also consists of features like Cruise Control, ABS, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, Tyre pressure monitoring system, voice assist system etc. Safety The Scorpio Automatic equipped with overheat protection, reverse lockout, BTSI (brake transmission shift interlock) and anti roll-back in Drive mode. These feature enables the Scorpio not to roll back on inclines, unlike most of the other automatic vehicles. These features and the new auto transmission would also help the women drivers to drive safely and also with ease. Price & Variants The Scorpio AT is launched in two variants (VLS, VLX) which are both priced above 10.5 L. and both the models were launched simultaneously.

Pros Powerful engine, excellent suspension, awesome styling, Micro hybrid Technology

Cons None really

The main thing that I want to talk about in this review is the Micro Hybrid Technology in the New Mighty Muscular Scorpio. There is no real difference in the drive quality because of the start-stop system. I felt that the working of the start-stop system of the engine is really smooth. The engine does shut down but comes to life immediately when the clutch is pressed so no real problems as such. I just think that this was a great addition to Scorpio in terms of saving fuel and reducing emissions.

Mahindra Scorpio Micro Hybrid
Posted on 9 Oct 09 at 5:05 pm

Pros The 2.2 litre mHawk engine is amazing

Cons Body roll still remains but is acceptable

The environment friendly car technology in India has so far been restricted to small electric vehicles like the Reva or the Honda Civic Hybrid. But its finally moved down to SUVs with Mahindra Scorpio. The Scorpio has been around for almost a decade now, and ideally speaking it should be due for a retirement anytime soon. But Mahindra has been constantly working on the Scorpio. The latest evolution is the VLX Micro Hybrid. It looks like a normal Scorpio but there has been little styling changes. Crucially, it has now got the Start-Stop Technology. The Scorpio Micro Hybrid is not a conventional hybrid car. Unlike a Honda Civic Hybrid, the scorpio does not get an electric motor to back up the petrol or diesel engine. Instead, what you get in Micro Hybrid is Start-Stop. When you stop, put the gear into neutral and let go of the clutch, the engine cuts off after 5 seconds. That is it, you are saving fuel and saving the environment. When you have to get moving again, simply press the clutch and the engine revs up to life instantly. It does save fuel, and around the world start-stop is used in a lot of city cars to save fuel in city traffic conditions. When the engine cuts off, the air-conditioning also cuts off. In the sweltering Indian heat, it is unsure how many people would actually let the engine cut off. If you are willing to overlook the perspiration, this system does make a difference. The Start-stop when put to test returned mileage figures of 10.09 kmpl with the system turned on and 9.82 kmpl with the system turned off. It is not a significant increase, but every little bit of fuel saved will help in the end. In scorpio, the Micro Hybrid Technology is allied to the 2.2 litre mHawk engine which impressed us all when it was launched last year. The all aluminum engine is 130 kgs lighter than its predecessor and the resulting difference in dynamics is altogether apparent. The Scorpio was once a very heavy ride. But things have improved a lot and the recent switch from leaf springs to coil springs has made a lot of difference. The ride is more composed, the Handling is decent and though it tends to roll and wallow a bit, it is quite within acceptable parameters. I once put on 10000 kms on Scorpio driving around in Rajasthan, and I enjoyed every single Km of it. Now with its improved engine, performance has gone up, fuel efficiency has gone up, it is more refined and crucially, because there is less weight upfront, handling is also better. Overall it has become a much safer and nicer drive. Micro Hybrid Technology costs and additional Rs.3000. Not a big hit on your wallet given the benefits of saving the environment and saving money in the long run. The Scorpio might be old but Mahindras constant tinkering with the car has managed to keep it fresh and relevant in this day and age. It still looks very manly and very SUV like. Scorpio is also the rare SUV in which you get Automatic Transmission. You can also get optional 4WD in this car. You get captain seats at the rear which makes it a comfortable long distance tourer. It suits many needs and many requirements. Clearly Scorpio is a cut above its competition right now.
