Comparison Review: Mahindra Scorpio vs. Mahindra XUV500

Overall Information

A new generation Scorpio was introduced by Mahindra Company in 2015 and it has adopted some improvements since 2017. On the other hand, as an upgrade version of Mahindra XUV300, the XUV500 is good-looking as well as better-featured. These two SUVs are both launched by Mahindra and have long become a pair of competitors. So, we will introduce you a detailed comparison between them from the parameters of Ride Quality, Safety, Exterior, Interior, On-Road Price, Dimensions, Ground Clearance, Colours, Specifications & Features, and Mileage.

 

Ride Quality

  • Mahindra Scorpio

Scorpio has a marvellous ride quality since it is loaded with upgraded suspension tweaks. Although you will still feel shaky because of the ladder-frame when crossing the bumpy road situations, you will feel extremely smooth when driving at the normal road situations. Besides, you can also get good high-speed stability when on the highway.

  • Mahindra XUV500

Compared with its previous version, the new-gen Mahindra XUV500 has successfully upgraded its max power and max torque from 140bhp and 330Nm to 155bhp and 360Nm. This means you can get a powerful linear acceleration from XUV500 and you can easily make a quick overtake. Moreover, the turbo lag was reduced since the XUV500 was added with a new eVGT (electric variable geometry turbocharger).

 

On-Road Price in New Delhi (some cities prices are lower than this)

  • Mahindra Scorpio on-road price:

Mahindra Scorpio starts its price at ₹ 11.75 Lakhs and reaches its peak price at ₹ 20.01 Lakhs, covering 14 available variants. All of its variants are equipped with the manual gearbox and there is only diesel version for the Scorpio.

  • Mahindra XUV500 on-road price:

As for XUV500, it launches a price range from ₹ 15.06 Lakhs to ₹ 23.85 Lakhs, covering 13 available variants. 7 out of 13 are equipped with the manual gearbox and the rest 6 are loaded with the automatic gearbox. Both diesel and petrol version is available.

It is obvious that the XUV500 is much more expensive than the Scorpio. It has various combinations of transmission and fuel type. Let’s keep reading and find out more differences between them beyond their price.

It looks quite standard-featured on the Scorpio, right? However, the Scorpio scored a disappointing 0-star in the safety test launched by GLOBALNCAP.

Exterior

  • Mahindra Scorpio exterior:

“Though” and “Durable” are two main words that would pop into your mind when you first saw the exterior of the Mahindra Scorpio. Although it is a little bit old-fashion designed, with the Roof rails, Roof Mounted Antenna, Body-Coloured Bumpers, and the Body Kit loaded on the Scorpio, it is still one of the large SUVs that has a fascinating look. Besides, the built quality of the Scorpio' s exterior is quite good.

  • Mahindra XUV500 exterior:

As the result of the improvements, the new Mahindra XUV has added a new chrome front grille and projector headlamps with LEDs. Besides, the fog lamps have chrome bezels, which look similar to the new Scorpio. What' s more, the newly design hood gets creases, so it looks more muscular. As for the side profile, it has adopted a new 17-inch-alloy-wheels.

 

Interior

  • Mahindra Scorpio interior:

Mahindra Scorpio gets a spacious cabin. Besides, a leather-wrapped steering wheel is equipped on the Scorpio, along with new mobile holder slot and larger cubbyholes. Lots of features for comfort and convenience are loaded on board, such as reverse parking camera, six-inch touch screen infotainment, steering mounted audio and cruise controls.

  • Mahindra XUV500 interior:

Mahindra XUV500 is equipped with a multifunction steering wheel, aluminium pedals, new ambient lighting and fresh illuminated scuff plates. There is a 7-inch touchscreen with Mahindra' s BlueSense App for the dual-tone dashboard. However, the interior quality of XUV500 could have been better and the sound insulation in the cabin is not so good.

 

Petrol & diesel mileage

  • Mahindra Scorpio diesel mileage:

Since the Mahindra Scorpio only offers the diesel version, its official claimed diesel mileage is 12 to 14 kmpl.

  • Mahindra XUV500 petrol & diesel mileage:

As for the Mahindra XUV500, both the official petrol & diesel mileage performance is 14 to 16 kmpl.

XUV500 is doing slightly better than Scorpio in mileage performance. But both of them are not so fuel-efficient.

 

Dimensions

  • Mahindra Scorpio dimensions ( length/weight/width/height ):

Length

4456 mm

Width

1820 mm

Height

1995 mm

Wheelbase

From the comparison table above we can know that the Mahindra Scorpio is generally bigger than the XUV500 but with a shorter wheelbase. And Scorpio is also much heavier than the XUV500, which could be a big challenge to its engine.

 

Ground Clearance

  • Mahindra Scorpio ground clearance: 180 mm
  • Mahindra XUV500 ground clearance: 200 mm

XUV500 beats the Scorpio quite a lot in the ground clearance. With 20 mm higher than the Scorpio, the XUV500 could go through various and complicated road situations.

Conclusion:

Both the Mahindra Scorpio and the Mahindra XUV500 are good vehicles. But the XUV500 is doing better in some parameters than the Scorpio. Considering the budget and value for money, if you are holding a budget under ₹ 12 Lakhs, I would suggest you go for the Mahindra Scorpio, but if you are holding a budget over ₹ 15 Lakhs, the Mahindra XUV500 would be a better choice.
