The XUV500 is Mahindra’s first entry level premium SUV. It sits above the Scorpio in the product portfolio and is also the best looking and most powerful car from Mahindra. Since Mahindra took over South Korean car maker SSsangyong, the company has had a chance to invest heavily into its R&D for new product development and the XUV500 is the best example from it. The car has been very well received by the Indian market. Currently it comes with a brand new diesel engine. The car competes mainly with the Renault Duster and the Skoda Yeti, as it is also considered a crossover vehicle.
Mahindra claims the car design has been inspired by a cheetah, but we really had to stare at it intensely to begin to notice that. However the car does look very good and is a huge step forward for the company in terms of design. It’s got a nice SUV look to it with it large front grille and stylish headlights. The bumper on the front and the rear look nice, and the large wheel arches make it look butch and tough. The exterior silhouette is also very attractive and there are nice curves all along the car. It’s just over 4 and-a-half metres in length and sits high at 1785mm, plus it is also wide. It’s just the perfect size. The nice big wheels and the alloy rims add a plush touch to it, not to mention those funky looking handles on the doors. It’s a very crisp and contemporary design and that is the reason it sells so well.

I dont own a XUV yet. I have booked it on 10th June 2012 and delivery date is 27th Aug 2012, but now I believe that I should have booked it after Diwali. XUV is a strong and dashing vehicle but there is still a lot to be improved like plastics used in interior is of inferior quality, headlights settings need to be fixed, software issues need to be corrected, Grinding noise in the breaks need to be fixed, clutch is hard and need M and M attention. When we talk about SUV Sports Utility Vehicle, we have very limited options. We assume Safari, Scorpio, Innova, Aria, Xylo are SUV but in real sense, Endeavour and Bolero are only real SUVs available in the market for middle class Indian. M and M has to make XUV a real SUV which can be driven in off roads with ease and no maintenance cost involved. M and M, Good job done but still lot to be improved.
