Drove my Scorpio-N around 700 km, I plan to write a detailed review after driving it for a few thousand kilometres. Here are a quick highlights.
Feels great on the highway and the city traffic however, I have to be careful in my street and parking.

Clutch failure video
- I still don’t feel confident about the clutch. I am coming from a petrol and I like the way it works on petrol.
- It is hard to figure out that there is a 2.2L diesel engine under the hood, it’s silent.
- Acceleration and torque is amazing. It will reach 100 in no time.
- Speed breakers and potholes, are no more speed breakers and potholes.
- Ground clearance may be low on papers but on road it’s ample.
- Second row passengers are enjoying the commanding position.
- Head turner for the outsiders and the passengers dont really want to sit in any other car now.
- Manual variant is missing the remote start and remote AC control which is disappointing
- Infotainment always start with radio as source which is irritating.
- Same is with climate control not retaining the previous settings, starts around 21 degrees.
- Auto start stop is sometimes miss sometimes hit.
- Sunroof curtain vibrates at high speed.
- Noise insulation is great but after 90-100kmph you will get the noise.
- Haven’t explored the 4×4 yet, will post it in detailed review.
- LED headlights are amazing. Projector fog lamps/cornering light and high beam are my favourite.
- Ingress footboard’s place is seamless and on point.
- I enjoy the way I get on the driver seat. Feels like riding a horse.
