Scorpio-N vs XUV700: Which Mahindra SUV suits you?

After the Thar and XUV700, Mahindra has introduced the new Scorpio-N amid an aggressive SUV strategy aiming to take the lead in the segment. While Thar has a niche segment of buyers, the XUV700 and Scorpio-N promises to be more popular offerings which also offer performance of a 4X4 vehicle. XUV700 is currently Mahindra’s second best-selling model after the Bolero SUV. Scorpio-N, which was launched recently at a starting price of 11.99 lakh, could also play a significant role to boost Mahindra’s sales as it aims to be the number four carmaker in India after Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai Motor and Tata Motors.
