Same here . Scorpio has the best 2 seats . Same time best body role in its class due to the height .

Well we are still all waiting for the team bhp review on where we need to head . It looks like we will have one of the team bhp member getting the XUV before that and actually reading that review before the official one gets out

This actually isnt good. High body roll is something that nobody would want in a vehicle.

I think what Ranga meant was that Body Roll is least (therefore best) in class. Not sure, but I think the Innova would be hard to beat in terms of lack of body roll.

Just now got a call from the Dealer here in Chennai that all the bookings (all variants) for XUV has been STOPPED. I had gone in the morning to make the inquiry for the vehicle.

I also obviously also made a point on the brilliant pricing and asked him if they are making money on it ! He replied, "Its a Mahindra policy to make money on everything we sell"...
If I am not mistaken, cars like the Mercedes and BMW are also available at around 14-15 lac price point and the honda accords and camrys are available at around 8-10 lac in US and Europe and many other countries. but because of the high duty structure in India they are so costly.

so a completely home made product like the Mahindra XUV is perfectly capable to make money at this price point. but we indians are so used to paying exorbitant prices (read 175-200 % more compared to western countries) for our cars that we find this cheap but in reality its properly priced.

I would love to see Indian Company make some money by giving good cars to my fellow countrymen. I recently bought a Tommy hilfiger in the US for 20$. That around 1000 Rs. The same shirt back home in BLR was 2200. So what, well, the shirt says its made in India. Why, not India is one of the biggest garment exporters in the World. So when Tommy hilfiger sells its a 2200, where is the extra money going? To the parent US company. These is true for all the Indian subsidiaries for Non Indian companies, including the auto majors. If you compare the competition for XUV them you have Safari, T-fort, Yeti, Endeavor (closest may not be same segment) who all sells their cars at a premium.

They put the customers first and definitely better attitude towards customers (have you ever owned a TATA?). but then things are changing. Isn't it time that M&M made good money by providing a good car (more affordable to the masses than competition). I would love to see the money circulate at home :-)

Just a little OT question but its related to XUV only hence posting here.

What if at the delivery time, i dont want to buy the car, can i then transfer the booking of the car to someone else if i find someone who wants it? Would that involve lot of paper work or it would be easy process?

The reason for asking this here is that as i have already booked XUV w6 and the delivery is on 17/12/11, i still have some issues related to parking. My house is getting constructed and it would be completed most probably by may-june. Till that time i really dont have a place to park as i already struggle with parking with my fiesta and fabia. So it could be possible that i might have to cancel the booking, but on the other hand just thought that it would be better idea to give the booking to someone else so that person would not have to wait and infact will receive the car instantly (hah such a noval idea nah)

I would say, keep the booking even if the car is allocated to you and pass it on to next guy in queue. Once your parking is ready, take delivery of the next car that comes your way.

Again looking at the response, this is going to be another Fortuner story I guess. Once canceled, you might have some real difficulty in getting another one, especially if the booking is closed and all. Just let the SA know early enough that you need the car only by May / June.

Couple of thoughts:

1. Good time for the Safari Merlin to Launch to take away some share on account of the long waiting time for XUV. With Tata of course you never know.

2. Whats the wish list of Bhpians for XUV 500? For me low ratio in 4x4-Just to make it a true blue SUV. However I am not sure how robust monocoques are in no-road situations. Experts?

Best,
FBS
