Welcome to TAI
Also the choices you provided does bring you an easy answer
1. Mahindra Scorpio S10
If you Love an Old-School Suv, Ladded on Frame chasis,
with Rugged and Butch looks.
If you want to Ride King Size and Self-driven.
It can Easily seat 5 persons comfortably and Gulp a Huge amount of Luggage.
Ride quality and Handling has Vastly improved in the new version, check my Ownership review Mahindra Scorpio S10 (White): Introducing the Beastly Pegasus Jr.
for details and my remarks.
Potholes! Just Bring it On! etc and many more.
Actually I had sold my 2yrs Old Scorpio for Upgrading to an XUV,
But after taking 3 Test Drives in different conditions from 3 showrooms
this vehicle just could not win my heart.
If you are a Sedan guy, used to certain level of Luxuries,
Prefer a Planted Ride,with a Lower Center of Gravity and a Monocoque chassis.
Bells and Whistles and Features Up to the Brim.
Extra Bhp coupled by a 6th gear.
Also Leave the Ground Clearance on Paper, Just go to the Showroom,
Bend Down and check both cars on your Own, Scorpio Has got the Better GC than XUV.
Also if the Boot Space is not much of an Issue.
Also please refer to the Huge Threads on Xuv500 Niggles,
and very Sad to say still XUV has a lot of Issues yet to be corrected, the Top of the List being the Brake.
Just drove an XUV W8 of my friend bought just on Dhanteras,
Sorry to say it was Just Scary!, not Confidence Inspiring at all.
Because Stopping such a Huge Car with Momentum requires that Bite
while braking, that wasn't there.
Also one more point is that the Safety rating of XUV is tested on W8,
Which has curtain Airbags and you will Not be getting those in W6.
Coming to Duster cant comment anything much because Firstly that looks quite tiny compared to the other Beasts, and secondly was Not in My List.
These are My Personal Opinion after about 2 months of Rigorous research because I was also Stuck Between Choosing the
"Sleek Cheetah" (CAR) or the "Mighty Scorpio" (SUV)
