Xylo vs Scorpio - My Two Cents

Question:  Tell me which vehicle Xylo or Scorpio is more comfort. I don't want the style matter, especially which one have much legroom in the third row seating. Is Xylo reliable like Scorpio? Can we drive Xylo in rough roads often? You might have played with both Xylo and Scorpio. Please share your suggestions.

My Two Cents:  First and foremost they both are two different machines from two different segments, one is an SUV and the other is a mini van. I have a Scorpio and have test driven the Xylo. The scorpio has a lot of body roll which is very well controlled in the Xylo. There is still noticeable body roll though. The Scorpio has better pick and acceleration compared to the Meagle engine on the Xlyo, but it is not bad, it pulls well, has a slight noticeable turbo lag, but in the right power, it really moves well.

Now coming to the leg room, it has loads of space in the form of leg room as compared to the Mahindra Scorpio, the third row even beats the Toyota Innova in legroom. Then, there are so many bells and whistles that are offered for the price and a lot of nick naks spread all over the car. I think the Xylo is also more mileage oriented. Xylo is a better tourer than the Scorpio any day. Go for it if you want comfort and don't want to be tossed around, but again here the Mhawk has a lot of suspension issue sorted out, so it is not as bad as the CRDE that I have.

If you want road presence, command of view, and the butch look with SUV owner tag then Scorpio. Value for money Xylo every rupee of it. Now all you need to do is a test drive of Xylo and Scorpio and decide for yourself.
