I like the fact that the 2nd and 3rd row seats fold completely flat and that the back of the seats are made of the same durable fabric that covers the boot (it seems so from the pictures). There is a lot of useful space to carry luggage or for the odd time you have to move some furniture.

This is a first for M&M and a much improved design over the Scorpio and Xylo.

Guess the top end will cross 16. Just checked the price of cruze in bangalore. 12l cruze in bangalore costs ard 15.3 onroad.
W8 AWD might cost ard 13.5 ex in bangalore..So it may go well above 16.

still acceptable in my opinion

Guys, Cost of ownership has just gone up from today in Delhi. Delhi government has rasied the registration tax on diesel vehicles by 25 % on the existing registration rate from Thursday.
Please add another 30-35K to arrive at the on-road price.
XUV5OO will entail a registration charges of 12.5%.

Cough up more for diesel cars (in Delhi) now - The Times of India

Any confirmation on 205 mm ground clearance? not that it matters much. I am already tempted to sell my 2 year old scorpio :-) Any details on the 'attractive' exchange offer would help.

4. Loads of bells and whistles (these are actually bonus for me)

And above all it is M&M, brand loyalty Eh... ?


Dude!! If I'm not mistaken, you got your Scorpio SLE only in June this year, right? Got bored so soon?

Back on topic - Hope that M&M dealers in other cities follow the dealers in Bangalore in offering decent prices if a Scorp owner is interested in upgrading to a XUV500.

Cheers,

A fairly unbiased review.
Mahindra XUV 500 Ė Review | Photos & SlideShows | Vicky.in

Quote:
  • However the crude plastics and levers (parking lever, inside door handle) spoils the party.
  • Slot in the gears, dab the throttle to the floor, XUV 500 motor is electronically limited to 4800rpm. As typical of any Mahindra, all you get is the brute force it never lets you down. Refinement may not be upto the international standards but the thrill is there to excite youWe managed to hit upto 125kmph at the chakan track and the XUV 500 moved like a breeze without any strain.
  • 3rd row is not an adult seat but it is not only a child seat either. The drawback is second row seat lacks the rail which means you canít give extra space to third row passenger.
  • we found during hard braking the mean machine sways to-and-fro like in the Scorpio
  • XUV 500 = rugged exterior of Scorpio + comfort and convenience of Xylo.Mahindra has also priced it very aggressively. The minor sore points are the plastic quality and fit and finish. Also it is only marginally better than Scorpio in handling and refinement, lots of room still exist to cover.

a 2700 wheel base is a welcome and looking at the height of the vehicle should handle better than Scorpio. Need to also look at the rear suspension. a 6 speed MT is new for Mahidra. Is it M&M's in house design or has it been bought? The pricing is attractive, the 2 WD W8 will be be most selling in my view.

Any idea when the TD's start?

This is a bit OT. But, it would be applicable all across, to all Diesel cars and variants so that is something somebody buying a car from Delhi will have to anyway bear. As is speculated, people buying from outside of Delhi in Gurgaon/Noida etc and drive in Delhi will only increase.

Just noticed that the beast comes with the option of Beige interiors as well. I think its good, somehow am not a fan of that Plum shade, feels like sitting in a fruit cart

With a nice packaging..very well put together interiors (especially the centre console) and the killer pricing..my hunch is that even higher segment SUV's including the T-Fort are going to feel the pinch from XUV500.

There was no really stylish SUV below Captiva / Outlander / Fortuner.
XUV500 changes all that.. I just wish they give XUV500 a better streamlined bumper and better door handles in the near future.

BTW saw a Red XUV in Chnakayapuri area today morning on the way to office.. The car does have road presence.

I am surprised with the pricing strategy of Mahindra.
On one side they have the bare bones thar,that doesnt even have an AC for 6L ex showroom,and they have the XUV,a totally modern platform,with a better engine,all bells and whistles for 10.8L

Thar is a niche vehicle and hence priced accordingly. XUV is not - Mahindra must expect XUV to do good volumes so pricing reflects that
