Mahindra Scorpio Expert Review



The Mahindra Scorpio is one of the most popular SUVs sold in India, thanks to a reputation that has been solidified over more than a decade. It was Mahindra’s first truly modern SUV and with multiple updates over the years, it kept up with the needs of the market, while catering to a wide range of customers.

The new-generation Scorpio features some attention grabbing design and new features, while maintaining its nature as an abuse-friendly SUV. Let’s explore what the Scorpio has to offer.

  • It provides great city driveability despite its huge size.
  • The Mahindra Scorpio commands loads of road presence, aggressive styling and an abuse-friendly structure.
  • Mahindra has packed in an expansive list of features which includes a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, cruise control, projector headlamps with LED pilot lights and tail lights etc.
  • The ride quality of the Mahindra Scorpio is still bumpy and plenty of body-roll devoids of the confidence needed on the bends.
  • 4X4 drive is offered only in the top variant of the Scorpio which also feels a bit expensive for what it offers.
  • The fit and finish quality on the Scorpio still leaves a lot to be desired for.

CarDekho Verdict

Make no mistake, the Mahindra Scorpio is still an old-school SUV underneath. It might not be the most comfortable offering in its segment, nor is it great at handling. However, it makes up for all that with its usability. The Scorpio’s mHawk engines are a tractable lot and are a boon in the city commutes as well. Add to that the practicality of the 7-seats and the roomy Scorpio can easily act as a great family car too.

"The Mahindra Scorpio scores highly as a value for money proposition."

The Mahindra Scorpio with its rugged demeanour can easily take on almost every challenge that the Indian roads can throw in its path.
