Its time to celebrate the tenth anniversary of India’s first indigenously built SUV - Mahindra Scorpio. Scorpio SUV has completed ten years of its success in India. Launched on June 20, 2002, Scorpio has under several changes en route and all through it has been the best selling SUV in India. However, the market for Scorpio is not as easy as it was back in 2002 when only a couple of SUVs were there to fight with. Now that the Renault Duster is coming on July 4 and the Ford Ecosport as well as Maruti XA Alpha scheduled for later this year and early 2013 launch respectively, the road ahead for Scorpio seems to be tough. But its big size, and a variety of trims will always crown it as the best SUV in India.
