 The Mahindra Scorpio is a proven vehicle across some of the toughest terrain and is known for it’s rugged and reliable nature. 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. The blackened double barrel head lamps have a day-time running LED strip running on top and static bending lamps. The front bumper is a large unit housings black fog lamp surrounds, a central air dam and a plastic lower section. The bonnet has a strong power dome in the centre housing a bonnet scoop.

Around the back, the tail gate gets a black centre section, the rear window gets black surrounds, clear lens tail lamps and a slim bumper with foot rest.

The interiors of the Scorpio feel modern with a clear and uncluttered layout. The quality of plastics and fit and finish is good. The instrument binnacle is well laid out and easy to read. Quality of switch gear is good and the Scorpio in the top-end variants comes loaded to the hilt with equipment. Although, there are small ergonomic issues in the cabin. The seats are properly designed and comfortable.

The Scorpio is powered by the company’s proven range of 2.2 litre and 2.5 litre turbo diesel engines. They add to the SUV’s peppy and fun to drive nature.

Unfortunate Buyer Of Scorpio Mhawk

By RATAN SINGH Posted on 19 Sep 08, 03:26 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 it’s 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 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- « Honda’s new CR-V with 2.0L engineRoyal Enfield Fuel Injection engine » --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mahindra Scorpio AT : Detailed Review

By Randeep Kaur Posted on 30 Oct 09, 05:53 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 km/hr. As far as fuel efficiency is concerned, the Scorpio At gives a mileage of 12.7 km/pl on highways and 10.2 km/pl 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.

Working of the new Scorpio with Micro Hybrid Technology is pretty smooth.

By Shankar Mahalingam Posted on 04 Jun 09, 07:27 PM

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

By Monty Raheja Posted on 09 Oct 09, 05:05 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 SUV’s 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 Mahindra’s 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.

Sukant\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s Scorpio review

By RATAN SINGH Posted on 06 Jul 08, 09:14 PM

Pros Road Presence

Cons Less Leg Space

I have driven Slx quite a number of times an on all the ocassions I end up with a mix feeling. The car has an awsome road presence. When it comes to comparing the car with Nearest competetor - Tata Safari. I do see Scorpio a thumb down in terms of Road Presence. But when it comes to the feeling of confidence as well as being comfortable with the mechanics under the bonnet I do see Scorpio steering ahead of the Safari. In terms of Body paint as well as giving the finnese to Safari. I see scorpio doing better. But yes when it comes to the IN-CAR Goodies Safari is still ahead of Scorpio. As a Car I will choose to stay with Scorpio for the Ease and butch looks

Good value for money machine but requires some improvements

By Rahul Tyagi Posted on 14 Sep 09, 05:07 PM

Pros Engine is the best part, Light steering makes driving very easy

Cons Overall fit and finish

I always wanted to buy Scorpio from the time I saw it on roads but to be sure I test drove Scorpio VLX, Innova and Safari. In the end I zeroed down upon Scorpio because scorpio is a SUV in true sense. Engine is what counts. I just love driving it in the city. I donot have much to complain about. I just wish the fit and finish was better. Look and feel: Scorpio’s looks makes it stand out in the horde of cars around. The tall looks and huge expanse make you feel like you can rule the roads. Leg space is less in middle row but expanding the vehicle further will change it dynamics. I feel Scorpio’s size is perfect for its engine and control. The head light, tail light and the fog lights in the chunky front and rear bumpers are well carved out. The new stickers and cladding give it an upbeat look. In the interiors the dashboard and the gearlever are well laid out but the fit and finish of various switches and the plastic quality needs improvement to give it a refined look. The seat covers look ok but leather seats could have added much more class. Engine and drive quality: The new 120 BHP mHawk engine brings with it a lot of improvement over the older CRDe engine. The power of the engine and the refinement in drive quality will make you ignore the shortcomings of fit and finish. It is a powerhouse mean machine to drive. There is no lag in power. The ne Mighty Muscular Scorpio is less top heavy than before so the feeling of body roll is less (but present to some extent nonetheless) . It depends on how you tame the beast. The braking has improved much more and I feel much more confident about its safety thanks to introduction of ABS. The steering is extremely light and I was surprised by how easily I could maneuver the scorpio in heavy city traffic. Scorpio is a very easy vehicle to drive and squeeze in into tight spots in city traffic even though it is huge. The suspension is also improved and I think it will last longer years as compared to old scorpio’s suspension. The gear shift is little hard but is not an issue once you get used to it. In the end, it is all about how you tame the beast. Fuel Efficiency: A 12 kmpl fuel efficiency on highways is respectable. The Micro Hybrid Technology might have some improvements on mileage. Haven’t really checked if it works. Lots of other useful features: The numerous gizmos like tyretronics, steering mounted audio controls, cruise controls, intelligent wipers are all thoughtful insights that Mahindra has incorporated in scorpio. My Scorpio has no Airbags which is a drawback but I think Mahindra is coming up with Airbags in scorpio. The Reverse Parking Sensors come in very handy which shows the scene behind the scorpio in the parking mirror and alerts you with a beep when you are close to the object. Overall review: It is a delight to drive the grand suv scorpio on city roads and taking it once in a while for an adventure spin. But Mahindra could afford to do away with the cost cutting and provide better fit and finish.

V-scorpio or Hawk in design

By RATAN SINGH Posted on 18 Jun 08, 12:01 AM

Pros Good and pepy engine ,

Cons substandard interior finish, gizmos would not help

I have done 2.25lac km on my scorpio GLX, yet i firmly belive Anand Mahindra should send his designers to the cleaners (to remove residual tinking)and then send them around the world to learn detailing in design and asthetics. The last mile is often the most difficult. Thats where the V- model fail badly. Upgrade should be in quality too. The new engine may impress but on the whole the scorpio does not impress with its static design

Mahindra Scorpio, one of the finest Indian product

By Randeep Kaur Posted on 30 Sep 09, 12:32 PM

Pros All possible features (default or added) are great

Cons NONE

Hi, I am a scorpio owner and i have to say that i am totally and completely satisfied with this product. This car which comes in the SUV section in the Indian market has great potential in it and has satisfied me to the core. The scorpio has a great turning radius which outclasses the innova, safari, and other such car in this category. The body is strong and not delicate and is a much more reliable car than many others available in the Indian market today. Coming to the fuel consumptionm part, i have to say that it gives u a better mileage seeing the conditions of the roads today here in India. The Scorpio has a great engine and so a good pick up. The run it has on highways is also tremendous. In terms of other vechicles as far as the speed part is concerned these vechicles have a weak link, that is when they touch a speed of more than 120 Km/ph they tend to shake or vibrate a lot which is not the case here with the Scorpio. With a Scorpio when driving in a highway and in times of overtaking, you dont have to think twice to do that mannouvre as it takes on the road in a smooth and efficient way unlike the innova which is a bulky car and the driver faces difficulties in doing such mannouvres. When in times of an accident (major or minor) the Scorpio tends to have a lot of safety measures plus it has a strong body unlike innova and tavera which even with a small hit gives an impression of a huge damage to the car's outer body as its very delicate, but for Scorpio that is not the case and i have also experienced the way the service stations act in times of servicing your car and they are really helpful and fast and they are not like the other service stations which sometimes mistreat their customers by wasting their precious time and money. The price of a Scorpio is also reasonable comparing the same with an innova or tavera as the Scorpio gives you a better performance meter reading than the others and these cars also cost a lot as compared to a scorpio. Mahindra is following one important rule in customer saticfaction by giving them good treatment and also by leading them in the right way. To conclude this review of mine the scorpio is worth every penny you spend and gives you a smile with satisfaction.

I purchased Scorpio in November 2006,and I face lot of problems from its Dealer in Chandigarh Swami Automobiles, for servicing I am sending my Scorpio to Goel Motors Mohali when it is opened in Mohali they did 3 - 4 services good but now a days the service of the daeler is going worst and their Service in charge (VIKRAM UPADHAYA) doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t know how to talk when i discuss my problem with him (while purcshasing one more Scorpio) on 9th May he is saying not to come here for service try out side in local market. In this way Mahindra will loose it sale .SCORPIO IS OK BUT SCORPIO COMPANY NEEDS TO GIVE TRAINING TO ITS DEALERS. BEST OF LUCK MAHINDRA & MAHINDRA WITH THIS TYPES OF VIKRAM THAKURS
