It could’t fairly match the XUV700’s system on readability, however will get most of its performance after which some.

Connectivity is par for the course with twin USB A ports within the entrance, a single USB C for the center row and a single 12V socket for the third row. Mahindra claims that the Scorpio N helps wi-fi Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, however we couldn’t get Apple CarPlay working even with a cable. Mahindra additionally offers you a wi-fi charging pad within the centre console and it accommodates even the most important telephones (with instances).
