Mahindra Scorpio-N vs XUV700 4WD, AT variants: Price comparison
Mahindra and Mahindra has announced the prices of the automatic and all-wheel drive variants of the newly launched Scorpio-N SUV. The carmaker announced on Thursday that the top-of-the-range Z8L variant with AWD will cost ₹23.90 lakh (ex-showroom), which is a little more than ₹50,000 expensive than the XUV700's top-spec variant with similar features.
