The new Scorpio isn't a mere a facelift but almost a new generation vehicle with a new chassis, almost all new body panels and much-improved ride and handling. It looks good too and can seat seven. With an aggressive price tag, it makes a good case for itself
Scorpio Detailed Review
First the facts. The Mahindra Scorpio has been in the market for nearly a decade and a half. In that time it has seen significant improvements. Its looks improved as did the standard equipment list, the engines and the quality. And though the Mahindra Scorpio was never regarded to be a great vehicle dynamically, it did receive its fair share of improvements in the handling and braking departments over these years.
But all that work pales when you consider what has been achieved with the new Mahindra Scorpio or the new generation Scorpio as Mahindra likes to call it.
Exterior design / Styling
Let's talk looks first. According to Mahindra every panel on the new Scorpio is well, new, barring the doors and the roof. Plus, the SUV gets a bolder, more modern face courtesy new head lamps (projector type), bonnet (and the air intake scoop), bumper and front fenders. Mahindra has also redefined its signature grille, and we must say it looks good. In profile, the 17 inch wheels, the flared wheel arches and the lowered stance of the new Scorpio grab attention. The mirrors and the door handles are new too, and there's now a pseudo air mesh or bezel on the fenders and bold Scorpio badging on the rear doors. At the rear, a black plastic panel on the tail gate dominates, and it is flanked by LED tail lamps.
Exterior design/ Styling: 3.5/5
Interiors & Space
The interiors on the new Mahindra Scorpio have been heavily reworked too. And for the better. The dashboard is all new, as is the steering, the door trim and the seats. The dash with its layered design looks more upmarket now and the choice of materials, colours and the attention to fit and finish is a huge improvement over the outgoing Scorpio. The instrumentation is more in line with the new Scorpio's youthful aura while it remains easy to read and throws up a decent amount of info including gear indication.
The operability of controls - dials, buttons, stalks et al - is crisper and better dampened too on the new Mahindra Scorpio. Mahindra has paid attention towards improving the ergonomics as well. The aircon vents are not only better shaped, their effectiveness has improved as well. Also, the power window switches have now moved to the doors from the central console as on the previous Scorpio. Though this is thoughtful change, it has negatively affected how one works the driver side seat height adjustment; it leaves no space between the seat and the door to put your arm in. We would have also liked the front armrest to have more adjustability; currently, it moves along with the seat back, which is quite pointless.
As for space, there isn't a big improvement over the older Scorpio. Having said that, apart from lack of elbow room upfront, there's nothing to complain about; there's more than adequate room all round be it for head, knee or shoulder. And the boot with the jump seats folded offers good luggage room.
Interiors & Space: 3.5/5
Equipment & Features
Mahindra has garnered a reputation of delivering an exhaustive features list on its products. The new Scorpio is no different. It is comfortably the best equipped SUV in its class, at least in this top of the line S10 trim. The new Mahindra Scorpio S10 gets a touchscreen multimedia system with Satnav and bluetooth. There's reversing aid, climate control, cruise control, a multi-functional steering wheel, rear AC vents, power ORVMs, automatic headlamps and rain sensing wipers. The new Scorpio also gets a strut operated bonnet and this is important because it tells us Mahindra's intent of moving up the premium ladder by offering convenience related bits the lack of which aren't exactly deal breakers in this class.
Equipment & Features: 4/5
Engine & Performance
The new Mahindra Scorpio continues to use the same 2.2-litre Diesel engine as the older model and that's no bad thing because we have always regarded this 122PS, 280Nm motor as a fine unit be it the power delivery, its torquey nature or even its refinement levels. And now it is mated to a new 5-speed manual gearbox which has improved the shift quality. The latter is still notchy, but an improvement over the previous 'box, nonetheless. The clutch effort isn't tiresome either but yes it could do with a bit more progression. As for performance, the new Mahindra Scorpio is no scorcher off the line but the torquey nature of the engine makes it a great tool for highway driving, given of course you don't get overzealous trying to match faster cars. It's still best to stick to the ton mark and thereabouts instead of trying to go flat out.
Engine & performance: 4/5
Ride & Ease of Driving
Another huge change on the new Mahindra Scorpio is the chassis. It still is a body-on-ladder frame SUV but the ladder frame has been completely revised for the new model. The frame is lighter and doubly stiff as compared to the older Scorpio. The wheelbase has been kept the same but the tracks - front and rear – are wider in order to reduce the turning circle as well as improve stability. What's more, the suspension geometry has been altered, there are new more effective dampers and there's even an anti-roll bar now at the rear. And of course the new Scorpio now runs 17 inch wheels instead of 16 inchers.
On the road, the new Scorpio feels better tied down now. There's still some side to side movement and the ride quality over broken roads is still jiggly, but it isn’t uncomfortable. The ride is also quieter and the increase in travel along with bigger wheels makes the new Mahindra Scorpio almost invincible over pot holes, no matter how huge. As for ease of driving, the shorter turning circle makes it easier to manoeuvre; the visibility is still great upfront and from the sides and via the large ORVMs; and with reverse parking sensors (in this the S10 trim), parking is a non-issue too.
Ride & Ease of Driving: 3.5
Handling & Braking
One of the big issues with the older Scorpio was its unrefined dynamics. Even though various improvements were made over its near decade and a half long lifespan, the handling and braking of the Scorpio was never really secure. Now with the new chassis, new track lengths and significant suspension changes, the new Mahindra Scorpio feels a lot more planted. It's still not a handling or braking benchmark, but you can finally push it hard without a prayer. The steering response is acceptable and even though the Scorpio still rolls and dives, the movements aren't alarmingly high. The brake feel has improved and the new Scorpio displays less tendency now to swing about under hard braking.
Handling & Braking: 3.5/5
Price & Fuel efficiency:
The new Mahindra Scorpio is priced at Rs 7.9 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai) for the base S2 version powered by the M2DI engine. (Also Read: New Mahindra Scorpio launched in India) The isn't really going to be the hot seller in the personal transportation space. The variants you should consider are ones powered by the 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. But even here, the real character and benefit of the new Mahindra Scorpio is best experienced in the top two trims - S8 and S10. These are priced at Rs 10.8 Lakh and Rs 11.4 Lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai), respectively. To us, given the improvements and the equipment these versions come with, the price does seem justified. As for the fuel economy, the new Mahindra Scorpio has an ARAI fuel efficiency of 15.3kmpl; not the best, but acceptable.
Price & Fuel Efficiency: 4
This is the first proper change the Mahindra Scorpio has received since its launch way back in 2002. And given it gets a new chassis and nearly all new body panels, it is almost like a generation change. The same - to a large extent - can be said about its improvements in looks, fit and finish, and crucially, dynamics. Mahindra has also packed in a lot of equipment in the new Scorpio and when you consider its price tag compared to the likes of the Renault Duster, the Nissan Terrano and the Tata Safari Storme, not to mention its ability to seat seven or even eight people, it's now a proposition that's very hard to overlook.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Scorpio
- Well, driving a car is more on judgment rather than the height. A person with a height of 5.4 ft can drive Scorpio comfortably and for the better view, you can keep your seat straight and steering wheel down. Moreover, we would suggest you to visit the dealership and take a test drive so that you can check its comfort and performance. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Car Showrooms.
- You can drive it perfectly..as it comes with an adjustable steering
- No there is not an option for sun roof ..but if sunroof is necessary..go for Hyundai venue
- No scorpio does not have sunroof
- No not now
- S5: It is in this variant that the Scorpio starts to make more sense. The more powerful engine, bigger wheels and more kit on-board sum up to a more meaningful package. The added safety, which is rapidly becoming a key area of attention is also addressed with two airbags and ABS. This variant is well suited for anyone who has always loved the big, brawny looks of the Scorpio, but is on a tight budget. Sure, it isn’t as feature loaded as it could be, but it does have almost all the basic features expected from a car of this size and price. S7: The S7 variant enhances the comfort and safety aspect, with a rear defogger, rear wiper with washer, anti-theft alert and the Intellipark technology which delivers visual and audio notifications while reverse parking into a slot. This variant is best suited for someone looking for an 8-seat layout, which is unavailable in the S3 and S5 variants. Moreover, at this price, the Scorpio comes with a handsome features package and comes with body-coloured panels. Moreover, the added ski rack on top of the roof comes in more than handy to transport oversized goods. S11: This S11 variant is the most feature-loaded of the lot. Apart from the additional seating configuration options, the S11 gets a 6.0-inch infotainment display, tyre pressure monitoring system, auto headlamps and wipers and a more premium upholstery inside. But, even at this price, the Scorpio misses out on features like electrically foldable ORVMs, no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay compatibility, sunroof, automatic transmission and more airbags. If you can do without these misses, but can’t with what the S11 gets over the S7, go for it. However, the price hike is a bit too steep and we’d recommend you to go for the S7 (140PS) and get whatever you need extra from an aftermarket shop. It’ll be more affordable that way.
- Scorpio has been the undisputed King of Indian roads for the last 16 years. It enjoys the confidence of more than 6.5 lakhs proud customers and continues to do well in a highly competitive landscape.

- Mahindra Scorpio and Mahindra XUV500 ex-showroom price starts at Rs 10.0 Lakh for S3 (Diesel) and Rs 12.57 Lakh for W5 (Diesel). ... As far as mileage is concerned, the Scorpio has a mileage of 16.36 kmpl (Diesel top model) and the XUV500 has a mileage of 14.0 kmpl (Diesel top model). Scorpio is solid buld at affordable price . It has an option of 140 BHP. Wheras XUV500 is more of luxurious and stlyish. XUV is has caugh more attention from people who drive sedans. Both the vehicle has got thier own followers.
- Scorpio is a more rugged suv of the two. it has a body on frame chasis and is very reliable off the road scenes. It is a rear wheel driven car. XUV 500 on the other hand is an urban suv and is has a monocoque chasis. it is also front wheel driven car and is more premium and better in terms of ergonomics, comfort and safety. choice is for you to make between ruggedness and comfort.
- Xuv 500 offers you a 6 speed manual transmission in diesel and a 6 speed automatic transmission in both petrol and diesel whereas Scorpio only has a 6 speed manual transmission in diesel only. That is the major difference according to me other than great performance , which xuv 500 has more than Scorpio. Scorpio is also a good car , it depends on you which car you want to buy
- It is only available in Manual transmission. The Scorpio can be had with two diesel engines: a 2.5-litre m2DICR 4-cylinder unit and a 2.2-litre mHawk motor. While the 2.5-litre engine makes 75PS of maximum power and 200Nm of peak torque, the latter is available in two different tunes: 120PS/280Nm and 140PS/320Nm. The 2.5-litre and standard 2.2-litre engines are mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, whereas the more powerful version of the 2.2-litre motor is coupled exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Scorpio is available with both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive options.
- Yes you can add all the features of S-cross alpha like led headlights with DRLs, auto dimming IRVM etc but paying extra amount for them. It will be a costly affair but you can go for them if you want to.
- Scorpio is only available in Manual Transmission. Its New easy shift 6-Speed Manual Transmission allows you to optimize performance, cruise on the highways in overdrive and save fuel.

Trustworthy beast that has stood the test of time and never let me down. A bit difficult to maintain and maybe missing the finesse of foreign cars but I have driven it under all Indian conditions all over the country for more than 10 years and has been very comfortable and reliable for my family of 4. Plus it looks badass.

The car I own is a 2.2 mHawk VLX Scorpio Makes 124HP and 290NM of Torque the highlight is that it"s an AT 6-Speed Borg Warner AT gearbox city Fuel economy 11KMPL highway fuel economy is 14KMPL and can be pushed up to 18 with Economic and conservative driving Adequate comfort and ample space Being a 7 seater the the last row isn"t meant for any person above 5"4 Love the audio Quality from the Stock Audio system which also has Bluetooth connectivity and a Mic for calls (Mahindra Radio)however I got a couple of Tweeters and speakers for an even better experienceThe top speed I reached is 176KMH while 0-100 takes 14s considering the fact that it"s a pretty Heavy AT SUV the timings impressiveIt feels even quicker while driving it It"s height is both a con and a pro as it"s height gives you that commanding feel and Safe over bumps potholes even with all 7 in place the height makes it a mission for older people to get in and get out The suspension is on the softer side Good over bumps but sometimes the ride feels on the Jerkier side (only in City)
I have been using scorpio s10 4wd since 2017nov, and the first thing i've noticed in this beast that door's noise keeps you irritate,it won't going to stop not even in agency, and you will have to use to it, and second thing I've noticed that i got a milage of 7 km per litre in hills and 12 - 13 km per litre in long drive, seats are like you will have to compromise with them, and no storage in this suv, like there are only 2 bottle space at rear doors and only 1 bottle space in front on gear console, there are no storage in front doors, can't even place your smart phone or wallet anywhere properly, and this suv comes with the cheapest quality 17inches MRF tyres that is going to run only 20,000kms, but instead on these cons this suvs performance is really good, and the 4wd feature is so amazing, trust me if you love off-roading then this suv will makes you fall in love with this beast...but mahindra need to work alot on the features,storage and comfort, at last i will just say that instead of so much cons i still love this beast.
scorpio has great road presence and it feels like king of the road while driving . I got captain seat version but the space was always issue.. if you have more than two bahas it has be 4 seater only and if we were 5 then no luggage space.. one more area it was bot so good was driving ergonomics got my elbow hurt many times by door.. spending 15 lacs on it was bot a great decision but got very good resale value.so no regret..miss that king feeling.
It is a wonderful car to drive but lacks on comfort and is a bit too scary to drive on corners and it also lacks high end punch. In city driving the performance is awesome. Ergonomics is not the best. Space is plentiful. The suspension is very bad and is very jumpy even though an aftermarket suspension will fix the problem they are expensive. Overall quality is not the best even though it is something you will not notice given the USA of the car
