2014 New Mahindra Scorpio Video Description
Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) has recently brought the first major overhaul to
the mighty muscular Scorpio in its over a decade old existence. But looking
at its lifetime, Mahindra has updated the Scorpio very frequently and it
brought the features which were never heard off in its segment before like
the micro hybrid technology, voice commands among others.We drove this most
popular SUV in the Indian market space. Lets roll.
Mahindra has retrained the previous Scorpio’s design cues but presented
them in a modern avatar, it’s now more edgier and flamboyant than ever.
It gets new angular headlamps, honeycombed grille, projector headlamps, LED
eyebrow lamps and LED tail lamps, new 17-inch alloys to name a few!
Unlike the exterior resemblance with the previous generation SUV, interiors
of the Mahindra Scorpio are completely new. The biggest change on the
inside is a new 6-inch touch screen infotainment system that even has a
built-in satellite navigation. Another big add-on is the fully automatic
air conditioning system which was not present before. Moreover, other
features like the voice commands, cruise control among others are carried
forward from the first-gen SUV.
Ride and Handling :
Ride and handling of the new Scorpio has improved manifold compared to the
previous generation which was plagued with excessive body roll and poor
dynamics. Adding on this context, this is all - courtesy to the new
hydroformed modular platform (chassis), rear & front axles, suspension
setup and improved aerodynamics. Moreover, new Mahindra Scorpio also rides
on fatter 17-inch radials which have also improved the overall ride quality
compared to the previous generation SUV.
The potent 2.2-liter engine has been retained in the new Scorpio which gets
slight tuning to improve the responsiveness and overall fuel efficiency.
The the 2179 cc variable geometry turbocharged diesel chucks out 120 PS of max power
and 280 Nm of peak torque. Now, the major change mechanically is the
addition of a new 5-speed manual transmission - Mahindra’s 5MT320 5-speed
manual. Thanks to it, shifts are now very smooth and precise.
2015 Mahindra Scorpio has really evolved manifold from the first generation
SUV and is still a competitive buy in it segment. With the addition of new
features including several segment first ones, the new Scorpio carry
forwarded the legacy of its predecessor. Moreover, its 4WD
(Four-Wheel-Drive) S10 variant is indeed the most value for money 4WD SUV
selling in the country at present. Though there are still minute glitches
in the new Scorpio but guess you can live with that and considering the
larger picture, it will certain take off from where the previous generation
Extreme AMPHIBIOUS Russian offroad vehicle: Aton-Impulse VIKING-2992
4x4xAMPHIBIOUS, VIKING combines the best of extreme off-road with internal
floatation and water-jet powered amphibious capability.
The ATON IMPULSE VIKING-2992 is a unique special purpose vehicle, ideal for
heavy industry, exploration, arctic use, flood-relief, NGOs, rescue and
emergency services. VIKING is the only amphibious off-road vehicle in the
world to have passed through certification to meet UN/ECE regulations for
unrestricted ON-ROAD USE.
VIKING's world-leading amphibious capabilities are based around its
purpose-designed flotation construction, centrally mounted engine and
powerful water-jet propulsion enable it to ford open water at speeds of up
to 15 km/h. The vehicle's wheels may be optionally engaged while in
amphibious mode, providing unique ability to cope with shallow water and to
transit the challenging littoral zone, where other vehicles commonly become
stuck in soft mud.
Off-road, VIKING is overwhelmingly superior to comparable amphibians, with
cross-country ability akin to tracked vehicles. High maneuverability,
turn-over resistance and endurance provide safety and comfort in remote or
With a curb weight of only 1.46 tonnes, riding on giant 1300x600x533 tires,
VIKING's exceptionally low ground pressure enables it to "float" on soft
snow surfaces and avoids damage to sensitive environments. VIKING has
independent pneumatic front and rear wheel suspension with adjustable
clearance and a tire air-pressure adjustment system operable from the cab
while driving the vehicle.
VIKING's is designed for security and endurance rather than high speed,
which in any case is hazardous on rough terrain. Top speed on-road is 50
mph at 16.8 mpg; off-road at 11.8 mpg, currently limited by the tires (cost
$700 each) speed rating. ATON IMPULSE is bringing out new, higher-speed
rated, custom tires, as well as bullet proof tires. More powerful engine
models will be fitted in future models.
The VIKING-2992 will for the first time be available for international
purchase in late 2012.
