Would I put my money on a Scorpio mHawk? Definitely not. The new Scorpio throws in a lot of equipment like steering mounted stereo controls, tyre monitoring system etc. But I would prefer to have quality even if it means being put up with a smaller equipment list. And quality is what is lacking in a Scorpio. Even the pictures of the steering wheel speak volumes about the pathetic quality levels. The finish, panel gaps everything...aargh! I recently went for a long ride in an Innova and I was very much impressed by its cabin quality--things are very good to see and touch, no disturbing panel gaps or surfaces. Add to that the dynamic characteristics of the vehicle which makes the Scorpio look like an army truck. I saw a Scorpio, in front of me, see-sawing and I bet the owner was feathering the brake pedal. Wonder what happens when it's slammed.
I applaud Mahindra for taking its own game into a higher orbit with its Scorpio. But it's high time it looked in to sorting out the handling and quality issues. Is Mahindra right in thinking Indians value quantity more than quality? May be.
