New Mahindra Scorpio-N owner explains why he chose Scorpio-N over Fortuner Legender [Video]

Mahindra Scorpio N is currently one of the most talked about SUV in the market. The ‘Big Daddy of SUVs’ as Mahindra likes to call it was launched in the market few months ago and the official deliveries for the Scorpio N has started last week and there have been many videos related to the same. Some videos show mega deliveries while some people share their experience of taking delivery of their new Mahindra Scorpio N. Here we have one such video where a Mahindra Scorpio N customer explains why he bought Scorpio N over Toyota Fortuner Legender.

The video has been uploaded by HER GARAGE on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks to the owner of a Scorpio N who was on his way home after taking the delivery of a Scorpio N. The owner mentions that he has been thinking about buying a new vehicle for some time and he had Scorpio N and Toyota Fortuner Legender in his mind. His favourite was Ford Endeavour however, the brand has officially left Indian market and he could not buy one anymore. The owner was then confused between Scorpio N and Fortuner Legender.

He was looking for an SUV with features and Scorpio N was ticking all the check boxes. He mentions in the video that he personally liked the type 2 Toyota Fortuner and the current generation Fortuner was looking premium than rugged. Scorpio N on the other hand was looking way more imposing and muscular although not as much as the Scorpio Classic. It was offering more features that too at a very competitive price. The owner likes to do off-roading and that is why he went with the 4×4 version. The owner mentioned that he wanted to buy the Black colour but his father wanted to go with the Everest white shade. He had booked the Scorpio N online when the bookings had started and got the SUV at introductory prices.

The top-end Scorpio N z8 L 4×4 version of Scorpio N had cost him Rs 28.28 lakh on-road. Owner found that Scorpio N was offering more in terms of features when compared to a Toyota Fortuner Legender. He also felt that the Legender or Fortuner is overpriced and Scorpio N is currently a value for money product. Even if the Fortuner was priced at Rs 35 lakh, ex-showroom, he would have still opted for Scorpio N for the features and premium looks. The owner felt that the interiors on Fortuner look dated. He is now planning to take the Scorpio N to extreme off-roading sessions to test its capabilities.

Mahindra Scorpio N is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. It should be noted that 4×4 option is only available with diesel engine. The petrol version of the SUV is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged mStallion engine and the diesel version uses a 2.2 litre mHawk turbocharged engine. Both petrol and diesel engine options are available with manual and automatic transmission. Price for Mahindra Scorpio N starts at Rs 11.99 lakh, ex-showroom. The manufacturer is most likely to increase the price for the SUV next year.
