4000km Update (sort of)

I was in Goa for the past week and drove a Hilux there for about 600km:

Came back on Friday and the first thing I did on Saturday was to put some mileage on the Scorpio. Moving from the Hilux to the Scorpio=n in less than 24 hours feels like leaving a Bolero behind and moving to an X3.

Feels good to have super confident braking (Hilux didn’t stop as early as needed quite a number of times) and a weightless steering. I just wish it had a 200hp/500nm tune as it feels slow (even the XUV700 tune would have worked wonders).

City roads or none, it always feels at home:
