And before we all go gaga about the price, remember this is introductory. Mahindra are well known for the creep in prices.
From the official site:

Brakes All Disc brakes
Front Disk & Caliper type
Rear Disk & Caliper type

I know they're discs. What I was asking is whether the front ones are ventilated or not.

I guess M&M will still short change us by giving leaf springs instead of coil springs, no disc brakes at the rear, etc.

Was even shocked to see that on the Fortuner there are drum brakes at rear instead of disc brakes all around. What a shame we pay through our nose and we Indians are always short changed!

The pricing is ex-showroom in Delhi, which is cheaper than other tier 1 cities. I would like to know what the prices are in Bangalore for the W8. And this is a promotional price till which date?

I am still not inclined towards this ugly design IMO.

It will be interesting to see how many XUV units are sold and drop in Scorpio figures in october 2011.

TATA's ARIA is anyway doing mere 200 units only.
XUV is not a big car as ARIA / Fortuner as it is less tha 4.6 meter in length.

The pricing is not VFM but marketing trick of introductory price and price at delivery prevails clause will take away the introductory price for any avail. By same time next year the vehicle will cost significantly more pricey if more people decide to buy XUV given the nature of Mahindra.

This launch has made One thing for sure "ARIA now stands as Jazz of TATA

Brilliant!

M&M have really gone leaps and bounds ahead with the XUV500. Fantastic feature for safety and my personal favorite would be the ABS and All Disc brakes as a standard.

A simple color change to the front grill.

Looks like you have missed out on the details a bit in the hurry!

Two things that caught my attention are:
  1. All Independent Suspension
  2. All Disc Brakes


At 11L Price point the above two are definitely really good features.

Cheers

P.S: Shame on you Fortuner

So AWD price is little above the good price bracket now :(
I guess W6 is manual transmission and W8 is auto transmission, correct? If yes, looks like we do not have a 4WD variant in manual transmission which will be missed, I am sure.

Another query - I believe the third variant is a AWD and not a (part time) 4WD, which means low range will not be there. Is that correct?

There is no AT on offer yet, the price for W8 mentioned is for the AWD option. All options on offer are 6 speed manuals.

Now the wait starts ... for GTO or his other band of brothers to give us the (always fantastic) Test Drive report. The pricing is a typical MM. Its not an Aria ( a MUV and a SUV have different appeal!) so need to see if the gap that Safari was not able to fill in can be filled by this one!

Mahindra has just rocked the boat in the SUV segment. Those prices are very appealing and will leave its competitors shocked. To be honest the prices even make the top end Scorpio models look overpriced!!

XUV500 has just given the Force One a kick in the nuts during infancy, I find it dying a slow death from now on and perhaps customers who have already booked one already killed themselves!!

I have no idea what Tata plans to do with the Aria but the Merlin must be priced at least a lac below the XUV500 variants if it has to survive in the SUV space.

Also I will not believe any of the mainstream reviews, they go 'goo goo gaa ga' even over a bullock cart at launch. Eagerly waiting for the Team BHP verdict, no pressure guys!!

EXPLOSIVE pricing by M&M. Looks like this one product will take the game across multiple segments / products. Guess Mahindra asked his reportees to price it to slaughter almost everything in its sight !

But Im happy as a consumer that M&M has not repeated the Aria strategy.
So finally found the all round package? Are you booking this car?

Me and my colleague are planning to hit the showroom tomorrow itself to see it in Flesh and Blood.
Please do a good long TD if possible & let us know your findings. Also please take as much as pics as possible. We would love to see more pics of this car.

Really ? You might need to do some background work before claiming the price is ridiculous ! This car at almost 2-3L lesser offers better / more features than Aria !

Thanks - We are all awaiting! Will it be possible for the mods to compare the size of this car with a Fortuner / Safari by means of a photograph - I mean XUV 500 & Fortuner/Safari in the same pic? Just to get an idea of size of the car.
