Mahindra Scorpio N is currently the talk of the town. It was one of the most anticipated products from Mahindra this year. It received an overwhelming response from customer and it currently has a long waiting period. We have started seeing videos from Scorpio N owners who took the delivery of the SUV. There are videos about people sharing things that they like and not like about the new Scorpio N. Many of them even took Scorpio N off-road and we have featured the same on our website too. Here we have a video, where a Mahindra Scorpio N goes off-roading with Jeep Wrangler and Toyota Land Cruiser SUV.
The video has been uploaded by Kasam Desert Safari Jaisalmer on their YouTube channel. Jaisalmer in Rajasthan is one of the places in India where you can go dune bashing. There are several groups that organise such trips. It would allow SUV owners to actually explore the off-road capabilities of their vehicles. In this video, we see something like that. The new Mahindra Scorpio N, Land Cruiser and a Jeep Wrangler are seen off-roading in the desert. There is a back up vehicle which a Mahindra Jeep to help the SUV in case they get stuck in sand.
In this shorts video, Mahindra Scorpio N 4×4 SUV is seen smoothly cruising through the sand. It is performing pretty well, especially when you consider the fact that it is using HT tyres. The sand is a very tricky surface and if the driver is not careful, he can get the car stuck very easily. It is a very short video and it does not show elaborately on how the Scorpio N performs in the desert. The Land Cruiser is a very expensive SUV and it hit the rear bumper on a drop and got it damaged. The Jeep Wrangler on the other hand can be seen having fun in the desert.
It can be seen going up and down the sand dunes without any issue. Jeep Wrangler is a hardcore off-road SUV and that is what is helping it on the sandy surface. It also looks like the owner might have done some off-road specific modifications to enhance the performance. The Mahindra Scorpio N is a capable off-roader but, it is not meant for hard core off-roading. The design of the bumper limit the appoach and departure angle of the SUV. Even with its limitations, Scorpio N can do a fair bit of off-roading than many other SUVs in the segment. Same is the case with Land Cruise too.
Mahindra Scorpio N is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol version is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged mStallion engine.
