Sirji its the XUV which feels better to drive and offer better seating comfort too. Scorpio isn't close I must tell you.
Where Scorpio excels is the ride quality, responsiveness and ruggedness.
After the updates last year, the Scorpio is no more the older uncomfy vehicle and has significantly changed with the new, better contoured and cushioned seats as well as the newly introduced features. Still it is the XUV which feels modern and more comfortable by every means.
If your daily drive is on well laid city roads with seldom rides to village roads then it is XUV else it's the Scorpio.
I have been driving a Scorpio S8 (and sometimes S10) to my site for at least 10-12 days a month since November and 60% of the road we drive on is nearly non existent and still we are always the fastest of all to crunch miles even on the worst stretch of the road. Scorpio is still in one piece and we don't have a single complain with the UV (my partner owns it and even he is so much impressed with new Scorpio that he has decided to buy an another one once this one faces a serious mechanical failure). No rattling, no wreckage, no electronic failures or no mechanical issues. All it requires is periodic service and slightly careful handling on the mountain sized bumps. Believe me, my Innova also takes the same road and we can't even imagine to drive there at the speeds we take in Scorpio (Innova keeps us more comfy though).
Not only this, I have even done Lucknow-Meerut and back, Lucknow-Delhi-Vaishno Devi- Amritsar-Shimla and back, Lucknow--indore and and back, in the Scorpio and I have not a single complain regarding this SUV.
And this is coming from someone who has been a hardcore Scorpio basher over its poor ride, seating and dynamics. One needs to forget the older image of the Scorpio and then have a look at the newer vehicle to get an exact idea of how much the Scorpio has actually improved. There are numerous ownership reviews in our forum which justifies the same.
Still, XUV is for comfort and highway manners but I will still choose a Scorpio S10 over an XUV W6 any days because I find it a better alrounder. XUV W8 seems to be a better option though.
