So what is that made Scorpio a hit. Is it the styling, being an Indian SUV or its appeal? Experts believe that it had a mixed effect.

Another important factor that could be worrying Scorpio makers is the uprising in the compact SUV segment. This segment with entrants such as Renault Duster, Ford EcoSport and Maruti XA Alpha will be highly affecting overall SUV sales in the country as these will be priced somewhere around the price of Scorpio and it is believed that though being smaller in size and capacity than it, the new compact SUVs will be offering some gizmos that will make them worth picks in the segment.
