Common Cons

  • Shockingly, no Flexibility of Recline or Slide for 2nd Row Passenger Seats in both Scorpio N and XUV700


  • Although 3rd Row has AC Vents in XUV700, but 3rd Row Space legroom is pretty compact in both Scorpio N and XUV700. Very Limited Legroom, Very Limited Thigh Support in both Cars and XUV700 even has limited hearoom as against Scorpio N. Still due to AC Vents in 3rd Row and possibility to one step recline - XUV700 may be occupied with small kids under 10 yrs of age and can be marginally more comfortable against Scorpio N


  • Boot Space is like a Joke. Whats the point of having 7 Seater SUV with such a small boot. Mere 100 to 120 Litre in Scorpio N but is slight better in XUV700 at 150 Litre


  • Both SUV would be like Gas Guzzlers in Petrol. Expect Single Digit Low Mileage in Petrol


  • Despite Top Models goes well beyond 20 Lakh On road - no Ventilated Cooled Front Seats


  • Mahindra SUV yet to make a mark in very best of reliability.
