Securing Your Travels In A Budget: Why The Mahindra Scorpio Fills The Shoes Of The Everyday Armoured SUV

December 09, 2021 Karan 0

“How much does it cost?” is the question that dwells into every person’s mind before availing any service. Most armoured vehicle manufacturers are not ignorant of this query, either. Sure, no amount of money is worth more than your life, but not everybody is well off enough to drive around in an armoured luxury SUV. Well, such people don’t need to shroud their travels in fear of danger any longer, as the Mahindra Scorpio is here to their rescue.


Considering the average bulletproof SUV price in India, a premium SUV with all the comforts under the sun, or in this case under the roof, is quite difficult for the ones on a budget. Consider a scenario: a business owner who has to lay off a few employees, due to unforeseen finance troubles for this fiscal year, receives angry resignation mails that are borderline threatening soon after. Really puts things in perspective, doesn’t it? However, an armoured Mahindra Scorpio can help alleviate a lot of the stress. Let’s take a deep dive into the vehicle to find out how.


  • A Body That Is Easily Workable



One of the things that armoured vehicle manufacturers throughout the country adore about the Scorpio is its form. The ladder frame chassis that houses wide body panels is easy to work on. Any protection measures are easy to install and require minimal modifications to accommodate. For lower armour levels, it is particularly hard to spot any differences. Moreover, if any damaged panels need to be replaced, they are rather easy to get a hold of owing to the Scorpio’s popularity in the Indian SUV market. This means that your repair bills might not be as sky-high as most other armoured luxury SUVs. More on that later.


  • A Robust, Peppy Powertrain



Another thing that drives the bulletproof SUV price down with the Mahindra Scorpio is its robust and powerful engine. Equipped with the mHawk inline-4 that has a variable geometry turbocharger, the Scorpio can put out 140 bhp and 319 Nm of torque. Combined with a micro hybrid system that assists with regenerative braking and idle start/stop functions, it is more than enough to propel the SUV with heavy armour components bolted on. Thus, you can save a lot on engine upgrades and fuel costs without having to worry about mobility or off-road performance, something very hard to pull off even in high-end vehicles.


  • Plenty Of Space To Boast Of

The new Mahindra Scorpio comes with ample cargo and passenger space. Good news for all the passengers, even better for the armoured car manufacturers. You see, interior protection is something that should be taken highly seriously, as much more material goes into rather than over the car’s cabin. Manufacturers need to account not only for underbody protection but also the placement of heavy-duty door hinges, bullet catchers in the window sills, and fire retardant lining. For the Scorpio, all of this is no issue, as its roomy interiors allow for easy and quick installation of anything you need to protect from, something that we’ll discuss in broader detail through our next point.


  • Extra Features With No Sweat

There is a saying, “The best armoured car for you is the one specifically built to protect you.” What it infers is that you cannot just buy an armoured car without any consideration, you have to tune it to suit your level of protection. With an armoured Mahindra Scorpio, that comes in spades. You can have 360-degree cameras with night vision, bigger run-flat tyres, reinforced engine bay, blast-proof MS sheaths, and many more upgrades without a second thought, as the Scorpio’s simple body structure allows for a lot of custom modifications. Now that the current version comes with an intuitive infotainment system, you can remain connected to the world along your journeys as well.


  • Easy, Handy Maintenance



The Mahindra Scorpio is a car that has been around in India for over two decades now. This SUV is so popular due to its efficiency and ease of maintenance that it is almost a tradition to wreck a few of these in any Bollywood action movie. The result is the ease of availability of spare parts that you can use for maintenance and repairs. And since most armoured vehicles often have short maintenance cycles, it is a good bet when you want something more akin to a daily driver. Additionally, there have been so many armoured Scorpios in India that manufacturers are well versed in the process of armouring them properly, even going so far as to assure great deals on warranty and insurance that you’ll have a heck of a time fishing out for a bulletproof BMW X1 or a Mercedes-Benz GLE.
