All said and done, if you area family of 5 and have the money to splurge, go for it. It’s one heck of a car you can buy at this price range.
BHPian 2500cc recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I visited Sireesh auto, Yelahanka to check the vehicle in flesh, here are my observations:
- Built really strong, doors close with thud sound. When you touch the body, you can actually feel the strength of the steel. Looks like it’s built to last.
- Quality of the materials is decent, could have been better on a ~20L car though.
- 1st and 2nd row seats are very comfortable.
- The noise insulation material used in the bonnet is thick and of very high quality.
- Very airy cabin, doesn’t feel claustrophobic
- Quality of paint is good.
- Looks butch, stunning road presence.
- Looking at the videos (especially Mr. Velusamy’s) so far, feels the ride and handling issues compared to old Scorpio are sorted to large extent
- Although the vehicle looks massive in size, the space utilization isn’t good.
- Plastics at certain areas could have been better.
- Not many chubby holes to keep things like phone, etc
- 2L cost difference between z8 and z8L is not justified.
- Lack of 3rd row split seats. Although for many small families this may not be of much concern but since we are family of 7 and make 2-3 long trips together in a year, this is major concern.
- Missing steering reach adjustment.
- Don’t understand Mahindra’s aversion towards providing their vehicles with sliding 2nd and 3rd row seats
All said and done, if you are family of 5 and have money to splurge go for it, its one heck of a car you can buy at this price range.
