This video is about the ownership and drive review of Mahindra Scorpio N of my friend Mr. Gill. We have discussed everything in detail about Mahindra Scorpio N.
The Scorpio-N is based on the third-generation modular body-on-frame platform and promises strong underpinnings with the use of high-strength steel - 81% in the frame and 41% in the body. Mahindra also claims to have the lightest Body in White (BIW) in the segment with better torsional and bending stiffness than D segment benchmark SUVs. Special attention has been given to optimizing the load dissipation in the event of a crash with the major brunt being taken by the frame and not the body. In simple words, if there's a crash, the doors won't be deformed to trap you inside the car, you will be able to open the doors.
Mahindra is offering the Scorpio-N with 2 engine options - a 197 BHP, 2-litre turbo petrol, and a 2.2L diesel engine that's available in 173 BHP and 132 BHP tunes. Both these engines are being offered with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. For off-road enthusiasts, there is a 4x4 variant also on offer with the diesel engine.
Buyers will have 5 variants to choose from - Z2, Z4, Z6, Z8 and Z8L (The letter Z has been taken from Z101 - the Scorpio-N's code name during development). Prices for the petrol MT variant start from 12.94 lakh while the top-end diesel MT (2WD) variant costs 24.05 lacs. You can check out the detailed price list here. The launch prices are competitive and undercut the competition quite conveniently.
