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.

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,
Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,CongestedUncomfortable,
Since long, I was planning to buy the Mahindra Scorpio but the Supreme Court ban on the diesel vehicles above the 2,000cc engine put me in dilemma what to do. Then Mahindra launched the smaller capacity engine and I was feeling overjoyed. The Mahindra with 1.99cc engine is same as the Mahindra Scorpio with 2.2-litre engine. The Suv is a fun to drive vehicle but squeezed space inside the cabin, especially in the second bench hampers me to go for the long drives with my family. The fuel efficiency is average, however, that's not my major concern. Overall, great vehicle!

The Mahindra Scorpio Getaway is the best pick up truck in India without a doubt. I say this because it is in essence a Scorpio inside the cabin and has relatively comfortable seating and feels modern. The Tata Xenon is also there but is not the most reliable option. The Mahindra Scorpio Getaway on the other hand is reliable and capable with its large large flat bed that allows me to carry all my farm produce with ease. The Mahindra Scorpio Getaway comes with the same 2.2 litre mHawk diesel engine that offers very good performance and it also has 4x4 that comes in handy while driving in the interior parts of the country where roads are in poor conditions and can get muddy during summer and monsoon seasons. My only problem with the Mahindra Scorpio Getaway is its handling. While it is not the most comfortable vehicle to travel in, as long as you are driving the pick up truck there is no problem. But the moment you become a passenger it can be uncomfortable for you over bad and broken roads. Also, handling is not good at all because if you brake at high speed in anything but a straight line, the Mahindra Scorpio Getaway can easily get out of control. Mahindra needs to improve this safety aspect of the Scorpio Getaway.

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Comfort,
This review is about my 2 month old S8 version of the Scorpio. I really wanted the 4x4 version but that was beyond my budget - this is where I feel Mahindra should have provided 4x4 in more than 2 versions. Anyways, I love the car a lot and my family has appreciated the purchase. I live outside the city and hence have a lot of driving on bad roads and this is where this SUV is a treat to drive. The engine is also very powerful and yet delivers me 13-14kmpl overall. One issue I have with the vehicle is the lack of space in 2nd row. Mahindra could have done something about this. Also there are less places inside the car to keep stuff. I am now planning to drive the car from my place to Shimla soon and hope it does not let me and my family down. I have a white color and feel this is the best shade for the Scorpio.

Pros Great Looks,Great Interiors,
Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,
The car is designed in very gud way. When we sit in the car it gives feeling like a politician or IAS. The height of the seats give extra advantage to the looks. If the milage of the car increased then no can beat this car for sure.

Excellent option for driving to Ladakh. I bought this vehicle last year as I wanted a good pick-up to go to Ladakh with my brother. We drove this from Ranchi to Ladakh and back and it was great experience. In ladakh we drovei n 4x4 mode on sand and enjoyed it a lot. It is very capable and now i use it every day. I love this vehicle so much now!
