1. Ladder Frame Chassis
Mahindra Scorpio N sports a ladder frame chassis instead of the more modern monocoque chassis over Mahindra XUV700. This makes the new Scorpio N much rougher and more capable off-road than the Mahindra XUV700. So, if you are an off-roading enthusiast, it would be a wise decision to go for Mahindra Scorpio N over Mahindra XUV700.
2. Locking Differential
Though the Mahindra XUV700 has been offered with an all-wheel-drive system, this system is less than the 4-wheel-drive system of the new Mahindra Scorpio-N. This is because the new Scorpio-N sports a mechanical locking differential at the rear while a brake lock differential at the front. The new Mahindra Scorpio-N offers much higher traction power than the Mahindra XUV700 and offers better off-road performance as well.
3. More Power
Despite both Mahindra Scorpio N and Mahindra XUV700 using similar engine options, it is surprising that the Scorpio-N’s engine is more powerful than the XUV700.
However, the truth is that the petrol variant of Mahindra Scorpio N makes 3bhp more power than the petrol variant of Mahindra XUV700. This makes the Mahindra Scorpio N the most powerful SUV from Mahindra.
4. Large Size
If size matters, then there are only a few SUVs in the market that can surpass the Mahindra Scorpio-N. The new Mahindra Scorpio-N is 4,662 mm long, 1,917 mm wide and 1,857 mm high.
The Mahindra Scorpio N is 27 mm wider and 102 mm longer than the Mahindra XUV700. Also, the new Scorpio-N is 62 mm wider and 22 mm longer than the Toyota Fortuner.
5. Side Hinge Tail Gate
Nowadays, most SUV cars have a top-hinge tailgate. This type of tailgate is more common on hatchbacks and less common on SUVs. However, due to its ease of opening in tight spaces, more manufacturers are using top-hinged tailgates in SUVs. This means that traditional side-hinged tailgates are rare nowadays. However, Mahindra has given a side-hinged tailgate to the new Scorpio-N.
