The Mahindra Scorpio is amongst the most popular and liked SUVs on Indian roads. Even for the brand Mahindra, the Sports Utility Vehicle is a big hit. With a rough and tough build, both exterior and interior, the handsomely made Scorpio has many features to talk about. The much-talked-about SUV, the recipient of numerous awards, was upgraded to the new-gen model in 2015. In 2017, it got another facelift with slight cosmetic changes and a new seating configuration. It was the time when the moniker variant moved from even alphanumeric to odd alphanumeric. In 2020, the SUV was updated to a BS4 model.
Another feature tweak of the Mahindra Scorpio is the updated face and grille. There is a new lighting signature in the taillights and headlamps. The wheels are now redesigned in an alloy, the ORVM is mounted with the indicator, the fog lamps have chrome bezels and air extractors in the new grille mesh design, and the tailgate gets new aero blade wipers and chrome appliqué. The interiors got a new leather-wrapped steering wheel and a six-inch infotainment system with a touch screen. To add to it, there are tire-Tronics, gear shift indicator, rain and light sensors, voice assist system, other micro-hybrid technology-equipped features, reverse parking camera, new mobile holder, and leather-wrapped gear lever.
The updated version of the Mahindra Scorpio is priced at Rs. 12.40 lakh (S5 variant), Rs. 14.21 lakh (S7 variant) and Rs. 14.84 lakh (S9 variant). The competitors of Mahindra Scorpio include the likes of Hyundai Cresta, Bolero, Armada, Renault Captur, Tata Hexa, and its mate Mahindra XUV 500.

Scorpio has proved to be an SUV on the Indian roads. There are three seat configurations available – seven, eight, and nine-seat options.
Smart dashboard, pseudo-leather seat covering, and a feel-good factor of the interiors of the car are good plus points.
The higher variants of the Scorpio feel light and offer commendable performance.
The BS4 engine and the suspension systems are calm and refined.
The pricing of the Mahindra Scorpio is reasonable, especially the base version.
The ruggedness of the Scorpio is notable. The heavy-duty body with the ladder on the frame structure is ideal for Indian roads. Its performance is relatively reliable, be it rough terrains or smooth highways.
It is also India's only hybrid diesel SUV model in the seven-seater variant, making it eco-friendly.
The new updated Scorpio version comes with multiple futuristic features. For example, the rain wipers that automatically start to work when it detects rain. Similarly, the headlamp sensors switch on automatically when it starts to sense darkness. Advanced driver information display also helps the driver drive smartly and safely.
The high roof and the narrow breadth make it a bit tedious for passengers to climb in.
The interior's ergonomics is a bit questionable, with some inferior-quality materials used.
The third row of seats is below average for all three seat variants in comfort and features.
The basic variants, S2 & S3, have issues with performance as they struggle in some situations.
The absence of automatic transmission defeats the convenience factor to a certain extent.
The Mahindra Scorpio is a nicely designed car and has an above-average performance on low-speed. The ride is quite enjoyable at low speed. However, the ride can turn unsatisfactory as the SUV hits a rough patch. While the lower version is not advisable for genuine off-road needs, the higher variants are good and impressive but expensive too. The Scorpio S7 at 120 HP is a good choice. It offers a better driving experience than the lower variants and has most new features like ABS, dual airbags, reverse parking sensors, a 2-DIN audio system, and projector headlamps. The model, however, does not get the infotainment system; hence, buyers need to consider their requirements thoroughly vis-à-vis the features offered before buying.
The base version of the Scorpio is reasonably priced, especially vis-à-vis Tata Safari. That is why many SUV-lovers prefer to choose this variant – the brand has gone down quite well with the rural population, where the brand recall of this model is quite high. One of the biggest advantages of Mahindra Scorpio is that it comes in 22 different variants. Such an extensive range means that there are choices for every kind of buyer, fitting into their budgets and needs. Another pro in favour of the Scorpio is that it is still the lowest-priced SUV 4x4 in India, equipped with safety features like airbags and ABS. These features attract buyers who are adventure seekers and love to venture out in the wild.
