Powering the Scorpio is a 2.2 liter diesel mill which belts out 120 hp and 280 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5 speed manual tyranny. Reports suggest the Scorpio will receive a 6 speed automatic transmission from Aisin. Aisin will also provide an auto box for the Mahindra XUV 500 facelift.

With the Aisin auto box, the XUV 500 will be getting a power bump of upto 30 bhp. There is no information about the power ratings of the Aisin automatic transmission equipped Mahindra Scorpio. The new automatic gearbox will be a 6 speed unit and will also be used in the upcoming SsangYong compact SUV (code: X100), which will be then followed by the XUV500.

    This is Gaurav Sehgal from New Delhi. I bought a Mahindra XUV500 W4 model in October 2014. In two days, I filed a complaint for alignment as the wheels were not balanced, driver side window glass was making noise, AC was making a strange noise. I sent the vehicle back to the showroom and they brought it back next day. The same problems persisted before first service. Now, 7,500 kms later, I saw rubber sole from tyres starting to fall off.
    Workshop is around 55 kms away from my house at Mathura road. I went there twice and in Delhi traffic it took me 4 hours to go there and then to come back. Yesterday a boy from the workshop took the car and brought it back with a report that JK tyres has rejected your request to change their scrap tyres.
    Now I am talking to Mahindra people to whom I gave the money around 13 lakh. I will get their report on Monday.

    Then there will be a third step on Tuesday which for sure I need to take because I can see that they all have cheated me and are going to blame me for the item which they gave me.

    The consumer court, Social media, international news channels, magazines.
    I’ll do whatever I can to get my money back or else they replace their scrap tyres.
    Yes I accept it was my fault that I went for Mahindra instead of Honda / Maruti and other good makes. I am giving around 16,000 per month as EMI for the car. So the car value for me will be around 14 lakh or more by the end of the last installment .
