Congratulations on the nice buy. Its a bargain for the price. I really want to know a lot about the fuel efficiency of the graceful monster. The sellers are making a lot of ludicrous claims on this aspect with some asserting even 18kpl. My heart yearns to embrace those claims but my head blows the caution whistle that cars of similar size and power have been able to go only less than 10kms to a litre. Another question that bubbles up is the service cost. Please post more on these lines!

@renoy: Congratulations on acquiring a lovely beast! I surely have my eyes set on this as well, but would love for you to keep updating this thread with relevant information as you clock more miles on the beast.

Finding information about these vehicles are very difficult, I have left my details twice on the xenon website but I am yet to receive any response.

Xenon crew cab needs to be booked at commercial dealer or pvt dealer?

Though I am yet to visit any of the dealer but my basic research points out that Xenon CC can be bought through only a CV dealer.

I got a call yesterday from Tata after leaving my details on the Xenon website, the lady who called up was completely clueless, she told me that I would be getting a call from local Tata CV dealer but I am yet to receive any.

I would share the details here if I managed to get any.

In fact owing to its length and heft, it has a higher chance of getting stuck.

For about 8 or 9 on road you can get the Thar. With a 50k hardtop, it would be miles ahead of Xenon in terms of 'capability'. Plus it has about the same amount of interior space as the Xenon (might be a little more, not sure). Has the same utilitarian feel inside out as the Xenon. But is a much more capable machine at the end of the day, plus will not be a handful even in intra city runs. Niggles you say, well, that will be standard fitment on both. Oh and, tolls won't ask you to pay commercial rate.
I am sorry but I differ. Tell me which car does one not get bored of in 3 to 5 years? Heck, I get bored of a car ( any . I would get bored of even a supercar ) in 6 months. Ok, it is a different matter that I cannot afford to buy a new car every 6 months and hang on to what I have.

Thar? Thar look-alike modified jeeps ( out of old willies/ex-military ) have been in existence for decades now. So, Thar does not excite me at all. I have been seeing 'em ( the customised look-alikes ) for ages now. Agreed though that Thar may be a better off-roader than Xenon. But then generally no one buys a Xenon for off-roading. It is for the killer looks that makes a 2-crore car parked next to it invisible. If killer looks is what one wants, Thar is just no match.

Relax. I don't remember replying to you. Above post was directed to someone else. Read that post, his requirements then again read his next post after mine.

Received a call from local Tata dealer, Xenon CC can not be registered on white plates in UP.
The price difference between utility and luxury variant is around 35k, AC and power windows are two main features which are missing in former.

Relax? Me? Hmmm,... Is there any rule here that you do not speak unless you are spoken to. Not that I'm aware of. Everyone quotes everyone and replies. It is an open forum. I did not know I needed your permission to reply to your post.

You do not have to get worked up over my disliking Thar. I am entitled to my opinion, too, just as you are to yours.

Again. Please relax. I was replying to that specific query. Not generally speaking.

The 4 x2 version is available in Black, Silver, White & Maroon. The 4 x 4 Crewcab is available only in Silver.

Xenon Crewcab is available only through the Commercial Vehicle dealers but can be registered privately by filing an undertaking at the court specifying that the vehicle will not be used for commercial purpose. There is an additional cost of 10k for getting this done and the whole process takes about 2 weeks.

I don't think the vehicle would return more than 10 - 12kmpl. It feels a bit underpowered though. The engine is a bit noisy but inside the cabin its quiet. I had a Thar Crde prior to buying the Xenon Crewcab and I personally feel the fit and finish is way better than the Thar.

My 2009 Xenon XT 4x2 gives around 13+kml. (100% AC, 70 % highway)

IMO 3.0L CC should give more than 2.2vvt.
