How is the performance of Mahindra Scorpio?
The Indian utility vehicle manufacturer Mahindra is a renowned manufacturer of diesel as well as petrol engines. Mahindra blessed the Scorpio with a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. The CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection) fuel supply system present in the engine with 4 valves per cylinder improves fuel efficiency. The 5 Speed Manual Transmission Gearbox in the engine offers very smooth shifting of gear and delivers greater mileage also. Only one variant of Mahindra Scorpio is packed with Automatic Transmission Gearbox. This mighty engine churns out a maximum power output of 140bhp at 3750rpm and a peak torque of 330Nm at 1600-2800rpm. The engine perfroms well, but there is a slight lag at the low RPMs. The other big drawback is the mileage the SUV returns a moderate mileage in the range of 10.3 kmpl to 14.8 kmpl. The Scorpio has the ability to attain a top speed of around 165 kmph, it can done a 0-60 kmph sprint in just about 5.7 seconds, while it further gets better as this SUV is apparently said to cross the 100 kmph barrier in slightly lesser than 15 seconds.
