Overdrive India's road test video review was up a couple of days ago, checked it out today. And have to say, great review. Entertaining, frank and informative. Keeps things honest. Doesn't simply narrate specs, or glorify the car too much, or speak the manufacturer's tongue, like many other reviews do. Would call it one of the better video reviews by OD recently.

Hmmm. That's a good point which I failed to notice. May be someone other Bhpian can answer this...!

Saw first TUV300 in silver shade on road today. In my opinion this thing is uglier than it looks in pictures. Even my non-car enthusiast friends hated it in first look. Bolero was much better proportioned and looked far batter than TUV.

I thought of test driving it last week. To go to Mahindra dealer near Silkboard I have to take U-turn and enter service road. Moved to left most lane and glanced at showroom to check if there is any crowd. Saw a test drive TUV parked in-front of showroom, and yes it looked totally out of place. It looked worst especially in white. Decided not to waste my 1 hour and drove to nearby mall to kill time.

As per my last visit for the display vehicle, the tools were kept under the Jump Seats at the back. I failed to check and see if the jack has been placed elsewhere.

Saw the TUV300 during morning rush hour traffic on Western Express Highway. Really towered over the traffic and looked much better on road rather than the showroom. It's definitely got an imposing stance like big brother Scorpio .... And the Autos did make way !

Saw this in flesh today. Looks good in front. Good design overall in looks department. Actually liked the exterior design.. except the aspect ratio (length/height) in the side. Certainly would be good to have that drivers' high view point.
Aspect ratio would take quite a while to get used to!

PS: Same design done as 5m vehicle (than current less than 4m) would have been sent me to showroom immediately

There has been a fair amount of discussion about 2-stage turbo-charging/twin-scroll t/charging in the TUV300, including in the O/D video review. It would be nice to get some clarity on the issue.

In twin-scroll turbocharging the incoming exh. gases are divided into 2 (or more) manifolds which feed into two separate scrolls or volute passages in the turbine-side casing before being directed onto different portions (with different geometries) of the turbine impeller. This is used in the M&M Quanto, whose engine produced 100 bhp/248 Nm. Twin-scroll t/ching therefore uses a single shaft with a blower and a turbine at each end.

In two stage t/charging things are a good deal more complex. There are two separate t/chargers (an LP or low pressure t/c and an HP or high pr. t/c), the scavenge air outlet of the LP being fed into the scavenge air inlet of the HP unit. This is obviously a greatly simplified statement, but it gets to the core of the matter. There are also combinations of Roots type blowers (mechanical driven superchargers) with exh. gas t/chargers to give 2-stage
charging - the supercharger being effective at low load, low speed conditions with the turbo charger providing massive boost at high speed, high load conditions. The one thing which seems clear is that two separate units are involved (two t/chargers or t/charger///supercharger combination) greatly
increasing the complexity and expense - BMW and Volvo being among the pioneers of this development in the automotive field.

It would certainly be nice if M&M (tech team) clarified which type of scavenging the TUV300 uses.

Arrived at Bangalore airport late last night, while walking to the baggage counter saw a TUV T8 in red color in display.

Forgot about the baggage and went to inspect. The front is imposing (in a good way), will get respect on the road, the side view - nice all along expect where it ends but then it's sub 4m, the back - decent

Inside looks spacious. the dashboard is decent. The bonnet and headlamp had a huge gap though consistent throughout. Overall i can consider it.

It was 3 am so didn't prowl further on it. Time for a TD in upcoming weeks

In Flesh and In Red - Super

Had an exactly opposite effect on me
It was displayed in our office and looked quite decent, but saw it on the road yesterday and somehow didn't look at all appealing.
The interiors are a big plus though, and since I saw it in white both times it might possibly look better in a darker shade. Also didn't find the sub 4 meter length that disproportionate, it's mostly the grille which some decent mod should easily take care.

Saw the display vehicle at Bangalore Airport. My Excitement to see the vehicle disappeared due to the ugliness of the vehicle.

I thought the vehicle would look Macho, but it looked plan boxy and not macho in anyway!!!

So there is no change, a typical miss from M&M, its high time a proper too box / space is provided.
