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
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 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
