Comparing Two SUVs Scorpio and Safari


Both are capable SUV's and have their own fan following. I wish you could share with us some more information for us to make the right suggestion.

However basis personal drive experience of the SUV's mentioned, I would put my money on the Safari - It rides well and the thrid row seat also does not feel as cramped as of the Scorpio.

The link below gives you the comparison between the two SUV's

Feature comparison spec also seems to be in favour of teh safari - but its costlier by almost 50000 in Delhi NCR (Exshowroom Price)
Would be able to comment more once I have some more details from you'll

Scorpio, October 7 2016.

VISITOR                                                          hi      


AGENT                                                            Afternoon     


VISITOR                                                          Hi,    

                                                                          I am planning to buy a Mahindra Scorpio S8 Intelli hybrid model. I want to know whether the instrument cluster on S10 & S8 are the same or they are different


AGENT                                                            Why are you expecting this as we are discussing really top-end variants        


VISITOR                                                          I didn’t know that we only discuss top end variants  


AGENT                                                            If I am not wrong these are top-end but let me check again  


VISITOR                                                          This are the last and the second last model of the car what i am asking advice about?              


AGENT                                                            correct these are top end variants, whilst, I have physically not checked the variants, I do not expect the instrument cluster to be diff for these two variants      


VISITOR                                                          They were different in the 2014 and 2015 models.     


VISITOR                                                          I had visited many dealers in Mumbai but none did have the answer for this.              


AGENT                                                            and how were they different because when I am looking the features, I see no major diff which should impact the cluster and create a diff               


AGENT                                                            and in any case, it would be a costly proposition to do so unless DIS is diff from them             


VISITOR                                                          well if you notice a Scorpio S8 would have a green color illumination with round looking dials where as in S10 it would be a blue illumination with Hex looking dials       


AGENT                                                            wow - that's a real in-depth study and good information for me , Thanks really, but for me, it won't make much of a diff  look wise, unless readability improves dramatically due the shape and col change       


AGENT                                                            but then that's a personal point of view         


VISITOR                                                          well it does have a different visibility in overall looks. Also some of the features do vary. That is only the reason for me asking.           


VISITOR                                                          If we talk about the price different in both the models it comes up to 1 lakh rupees.               


VISITOR                                                          But by spending 1 lakh rupees we are not getting many necessary things.     


VISITOR                                                          Say for eg. We get TPS system in S10. Now a person driving cars from last 20 25 years will get to know the tire pressure just by driving it for a few metres. So it is not useful feature.          


AGENT                                                            with your permission, let me digress a bit, are you a car geek              


VISITOR                                                          Yes   


AGENT                                                            No wonder, but what about other features like a bigger touch screen, Bluetooth and cruise control in s10                                              


AGENT                                                            aren't they exciting  


VISITOR                                                          They do are exiting. Well a person buying a Scorpio would not feel cruise control to be exciting since we want to have a RAW TANK like feel in it.


AGENT                                                            you are obviously looking a AWD       


VISITOR                                                          If we looking for some cruise control feature a sophisticated car like XUV500 would be a better option then.                                               


AGENT                                                            let me be honest - I don't like Scorpio, thanks to its rough ride            


VISITOR                                                          Bluetooth missing is a valid point you get there.        


VISITOR                                                          Have you tested the new Scorpio      


AGENT                                                            yes, my daughter wanted it because she is a Scorpion, got the car for a day, end of it she rejected it completely                           


VISITOR                                                          Well if you would have driven the m2Di engine you would come to what major refinements are done in the new Scorpio.                      


VISITOR                                                          I am not a Scorpio fan too. But I feel pricing and features should go hand in hand.     


AGENT                                                            Let me admit, for me most Mahindra cars are rough and I just don't like them including XUV, even though my brother-in law swears by it            


AGENT                                                            most Mahindra cars have fit finish problem, rough drive, gear slotting an issue etc   


VISITOR                                                          Sir that is not a problem with the new Mahindra Intellihybrid  technology. Believe me.         


AGENT                                                            I would rest my case only on the pretext that it’s a personal feeling 


AGENT                                                            My family wants me to buy the XUV 500, but i am resisting it               


VISITOR                                                          maybe.           


VISITOR                                                          Sir you are looking for a 7 seater o a 5 seater.               


AGENT                                                            No I am looking at fun to drive car, currently drive Honda city and Ecosport  


AGENT                                                            City the best car to throw into corners, bad suspension though           


AGENT                                                            ecosport a responsive near noise less diesel with near zero turbo lag, linear power delivery                                                                         


AGENT                                                            yes I am seriously considering the 1.6 SCross               


VISITOR                                                          The fit and finish what Maruti has delivered is just unbelievable for a brand like maruti.       


VISITOR                                                          Also the cars turbo works quite well @ 2200 rpm. You feel a boost while driving on high roads.                                                                         


AGENT                                                            No doubt, Turbo does have an issue with me. plus its more noisier than my Ecosport              


VISITOR                                                          The space is good, fit and finish is good but all comes with a bit little high price.        


AGENT                                                            Turbo under 1800 is definitely that's holding me back
