Great launch and greater response for the Car. The XUV 500 has overshadowed all the recent launches including the new Swift which has more prospective buyers than XUV 500 segment Cars.

This is by far the best value money can fetch. Kudos to Mahindra for an outstanding product...

Suddenly, all cars / SUVs are appearing overpriced. I'm just waiting for the AT launch. This surely is going to my second car.

What a great looking package! Some of the design elements such as the rear hump to imitate a cheetah is a bit too much for me but overall i love the car.

The shot of just the headlights reminds me of one the posters from Transformers. Planning to hopefully be able to visit the Mahindra Dealership at Safdurjung and see the car in person

Life was anyway complicated choosing between the verna/city etc , and now we have her in the picture as well.

I have been keenly following this thread for a long time now and watched the launch of the SUV and the comments that followed. It was indeed ironical that the spy shot which 99.9% people had panned came out as the actual design on the day of the launch, and the artistic rendering which looked very good was nowhere near the real product.

The thread was filled with heartbreaking lines, invectives against M and M and I was surely one of the people who felt like a loser for waiting for a long time to see an odd looking broken toothed cheetah like product coming to foray.

The pricing gets revealed the next day and everyone is a convert! I would not exclude myself as well for I remember I spent the night of the launch guffawing at the awkward thing that Mahindra had belted out- and suddenly when one realises that this is INDEED a vehicle in the 10-12L range against expectations of 15L+, the design and everything seems to fall into place.

The last sacrosanct rite before booking the vehicle- Team-BHP review. When is it out, Mod? I remember Manson and Stratos were testing this beast a day or two back..

Mahindra has done an incredible job overall. The exteriors do generate mixed feelings but the attention to detail has been fantastic. IMO the exteriors are too radical. I am eagerly waiting to see the purple and black colors. Saw the white, silver, red and dark green yesterday.

Seriously! The "F5" lettering on my keyboard is starting to wear out!

Back on topic, Congratulations to all forum members who've taken the XUV500 plunge!

I do hope that M&M does the right thing by the early adopters, and insulates them from the eventual price rise at the actual delivery time. It'll go a long way in solidifying their goodwill in the market!

Cheers,
Vikram

Seems XUV gonna be a winner for sure. Its good to see people reporting so many bookings already. Now eagerly waiting for the TBhp review. Congrats to those who booked it today. I guess we have 3 bookings on TBhp already.

I just hope I get my XUV before Diwali.

Looks like the entire project will breakeven within a quarter.

Those who have driven - how is the body roll? Sharp turns?
Waitinf for our official review by the experts! No car has had so much anticipation IMO!!

What happens to Scorpio, especially the higher variants like VLX? Clearly no case for anyone to buy (exception being higher waiting times for XUV)

I am not sure if this is discussed elsewhere, reviews mention that XUV500 has plastic fenders. How good are they in our traffic? Wouldn't the customer be forced replace the fender for every small nicks? Is it a weight / cost reduction strategy or is there any other practical reason for it?
