Most people sued to regard Mahindra cars as commercial vehicles not suitable for family usage. But this all changed with the introduction of Mahindra Scorpio. This SUV is credited with reviving the dwindling fortunes of Mahindra and provided it a firm foothold in the SUV segment. The iconic Mahindra Scorpio which was once the king of the SUV segment when launched 15 years ago is now back into the Indian market in completely different avatar.
