Editorial Test Drive Review of Mahindra Scorpio Automatic

 The Scorpio Automatic was introduced to make driving in traffic easier. When it comes to looks the Scorpio 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. The amount of space in cabin is good. The biggest change is the presence of the 6-speed auto gearbox which has user Engaged Modes and auto Engaged Modes. 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 11 kmpl. The automatic is reasonably smooth though overall the driving expereince is not as good as the manual but in traffic conditions, it is painless to drive. The Scorpio Automatic has a fully electronically controlled automatic gearbox which results in shorter shift times and hence, improved drivability. This is a major technological improvement over earlier Automatics which were hydraulic controlled. 
 
The Scorpio Automatic is also remarkably low maintenance due to several advantages. The transmission is permanently sealed and does not require an oil change throughout its life. The Automatic also incorporates an adaptive strategy to maintain optimum shift quality through the entire life of the transmission. An inbuilt overheat self-protection strategy and a high self-diagnostic capability are additional benefits.
 
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.
