Relaunches of popular automobile models from various automakers in India is kind of a trend in 2022. So, Mahindra recently unveiled the Scorpio N, a facelifted version of their very popular Scorpio. The New Scorpio 2022 was much anticipated before its release since it successfully mimics the vibe and aura of the previous Scorpio! Additionally, Suzuki recently revealed their facelifted version of Ertiga. So, here is our take on the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio N VS Ertiga!
However, it should be emphasized that the two vehicles belong to separate vehicle classes. Also, the Mahindra Scorpio N is a mid size SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle), whilst the Maruti Ertiga 2022 is a MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle).
|2022 Scorpio N||11.99 Lakhs – 18.99 Lakh|
|2022 Ertiga||8.35 Lakhs – 12.79 Lakhs|
The Maruti Ertiga 2022 is available in 9 models with petrol and CNG engines, whilst the Mahindra Scorpio N is available in 6 variants with both petrol and diesel engine options on offer!
The New Scorpio 2022 is softer around the edges than the original Scorpio. The Scorpio N’s dimensions are 4663 mm in length, 1917 mm in width, 1857 mm in height, and 2750 mm in wheelbase. This indicates that the Scorpio N is wider but lower in height than the previous Scorpio. However, the Scorpio N has a striking appearance thanks to its elongated bonnet, tall LED taillamps, eye-catching chrome talon grille, iconic twin barrel LED headlamps, and distinctively formed LED projector fog lamps in the shape of a scorpion’s sting! The Mahindra Scorpio N also features an electronic sunroof!
The Suzuki Ertiga of 2022, on the other hand, uses the same style as its forerunner. It measures 4395 mm in length, 1735 mm in width, 1690 mm in height, and has a 2740 mm wheelbase. Suzuki has unveiled the exterior of the Ertiga with a new dramatic chrome winged grille, back door embellished with a chrome insert, electrically adjustable outside rear view mirrors (ORVM), and 3D LED tail lamps. However, the 2022 Suzuki Ertiga still lacks a sunroof!
The proportions show that both cars can be utilized for highway or city travel with ease, but the Mahindra Scorpio N outperforms the Suzuki Ertiga when it comes to off-roading.
Additionally, the Suzuki Ertiga and Mahindra Scorpio N both come standard with front and rear wipers and washers, which are quite useful for off-roading, stormy and dusty weather and rainy seasons. Also, on the Mahindra Scorpio N and Suzuki Ertiga, respectively, the diamond cut alloys and two-tone alloy wheels are both optional. However, the conventional steel wheels are installed on base variants of both cars!
Probably, the new sophisticated chocolate brown, faux leather integrated dashboard is perhaps the The New Scorpio 2022’s best-selling point! It’s breathtakingly lovely. Moreover, the interior has also been updated with dual zone climate control, rear AC vents, parking and traction control buttons similar to Thar, an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, and an adjustable steering wheel that was directly adapted from the Scorpio N’s bigger brother, the XUV 700! Also, the plastics are smooth and have a high-end finish. The rearmost seat has seen a big modification, it’s no longer vertical like in the original Scorpio! Still a 7-seater SUV, the Mahindra Scorpio N has reclining rearmost seats for increased boot space of around 460L!
The opulent dual-tone interiors of the 2022 Suzuki Ertiga feature a metallic teak-wood dashboard finish, air-cooled twin cup holders, a 7-inch touch infotainment screen, 2nd row roof mounted AC vents, and an identically adjustable steering wheel to that of the Ertiga’s forerunner. The Ertiga also receives a second row armrest! Additionally, the gear shift knob and hand brake lever have a chrome accent, which looks pretty cool! Also, the Ertiga is a 7-seater MPV with reclining seats in the back and a cargo area of roughly 550L as well!
