I got a cash discount of 70K, which may not be available now since I had booked in December 2013 and got benefits of year end-discounts.

See if you can get cash discounts from the dealer. That's better in comparison to the discount on insurance and accessories. Also do not forget to compare the insurance being offered by the delear with options available from outside

I have an insurance agent in family so I will be taking insurance from him only. He says he is 200% sure he will be able to give me insurance at much lesser price than dealership. Now I guess only thing left is cash discount. Has anyone recently bought this machine? If yes, what were the discounts fetched?

Hi All

Just got approval of my Membership request today.

First of all thanks to the Team-BHP for accepting my membership.

I have been following the XUV thread from quite a long time (approx. 6Months).
Initially i booked ECOSPORT(AT) but cancelled it in end of November-2013 due to its unending waiting period. After going through all your discussions, decided to go with XUV500.

After a long bargain along with December offer in Sireesh Auto, Bangalore closed the deal for White beast(W8) which got delivered on 21st December just one day before my marriage anniversary. Delivery experience with Sireesh Auto is good and they made it a memorable day for us.

This is the third car in my garage after I10 & Linea.

Covered 1000kms till now. Drive was awesome, my family members really like the vehicle for its royal looks and ride.

Ones again thanks to all XUVians & Team BHP for valuable discussions and reviews.

Mahindra have announced that it had sold more than 75,000 units of the XUV500 in just over two years since its launch. The car is available in three variants, W4, W6 and W8.

My Purple Cheetah did its first long trip yesterday and today. Left Vadapalani, Chennai at 6 pm and reached Basaveswara Nagar, Bangalore at 1:20 am today after a 30 minute-traffic jam at Chennasamudram toll plaza and 45 minute-dinner break at Aryas, Vellore bypass. I feel that driving XUV500 was more comfortable and enjoyable than Linea as I did not bother about rough patches, bad roads, speed-breakers, etc. and with the cruiser control set at 100 kmph, my right leg was relieved of the strain and pain.

And this is why I wish to upgrade to a proper ladder on frame car.

While driving a car, you keep scanning the traffic as well as the surface, this tires you. In a high seated car with good GC and robust chassis, surface doesn't bother you as much.

It is not that the road surface/texture is isolated in a SUV, but isn't as much of a bother, sudden appearance of pothole/speed breaker are not a bother.

Ravi ji,

How was the ride quality compared to Linea ?
Cruise control is boon to have, my next car will definitely have this feature.

On the steering wheel and its response, Linea cannot be beaten even the Cheetah. But, on the overall driving comfort, ride and handling qualities, the Cheetah emerges the winner!

I like cruise control, ESP, hill-hold and hill-descent controls in my XUV500. XUV500 drove on cruise control most of the times during my Chennai-Bangalore trip. On some occasions, I experienced HHC. I am yet to experience ESP and HDC.

The XUV is based on a monocoque chassis and not a ladder on frame chassis.
