IMHO - W8 and above are good options to consider for XUV5OO. W6, W4 have lower level of equipments and goodies. Engine is same of course but some safety things cut off in lower variants is not recommended.

Can any one advise me whether this would be a better choice than a Duster RXL ?

Amar, I believe most of the niggles reported usually are related to electronics and all the gadgets the car offers. I dont think mechanically there are much issues unresolved. So a W4 is a good bet in that sense.

However as Avinash mentioned above that W8 and above offer lot of safety which is certainly important provided your budget allows. I have a W8 older model and have been fairly happy, but there is always higher risk of niggles.

Guys, Thank you so much.. I am sad to say that my budget will not stretch to W6 also :-(...I am in a dilemma because Renault is offering Rs 105,000 as discount which makes the car on road price at Rs 13.02 L compared to Rs 13.78 that I have to shell out for W4..I was wondering whether this would be a good bet... Also, can any of the forum members / friends let me know what will be the average service expenditure for every 10k / 20k kilometers ? Once again, am grateful for he advice and this forum...

I bought a W4 about a year and half back because I felt it was value for money and most importantly I liked the looks. I feel if you like something you somehow convince yourself of the other "perceived" shortcomings that the product might have :-). XUV as a product has matured and as you might have also observed that there are less niggles reported nowadays.

I have just crossed 15k mark and the maintenance charges are bare minimum. At 10k it was less than INR 100/- and at 5k I only paid for the oil change etc. pretty minimal.

In my view XUV and Duster are 2 different segments especially from a size standpoint. Interior space, engine size, seating for upto 7 all make the 2 products different from each other. Your decision should be based on your needs in my view. I find XUV a more polished product compared to Duster but you will have 2 distinct advantages with Duster in the form of better ride quality and fuel efficiency.

Hopefully I am not confusing you , but main point being that you need to analyze your requirement and then decide.

Congratulations amar06 on the booking I was wanting to have a look at Sunset orange W4 and you have booked the same model with same color. Good to know you will be getting delivery within 4 days Will wait for the pictures.

By the way did you get a chance to see this color on W4 before booking??

Guys, did not get a chance to see the color on W4. However, it might be the same as any W8 / W10 as the paint shops at Mahindra are the same...have booked at Sireesh Auto, Silk Board...expecting the new car by Sunday..trading in my Ritz ZXi also..

Congratulations Amar. Are there any "year end" discounts that are being offered.

Cheers,
Ajay

I suppose they have some discounts running on the XUV currently. Saw in today's newspaper saying they have up to 60,000/- Rs discount. Probably you can check with the dealer, IMO it is the insurance wave off and corporate discount is included.

I recently purchased the XUV5OO W10 AWD. Facing an issue since day one with the sunroof - it drops down with a thud and then retracts. I just want to ask others who have faced this problem (N360, KAN, etc) whether his issue has been resolved or not. If yes, then what was done? Service centre guys at my end said they'd have to take off the headliner to see what the problem is. What I examined is that the rubber gasket around the sunroof glass is sticking at the rear side, thus making the thud noise when opened, shaking the headliner et al.

I don't want service people to train on my brand new vehicle, hence need a to the point solution.
Has anyone else had the same issue and resolved it successfully?

As per my discussion with the SA when the new age XUV was launched, it should cost around 50-60K(Approx) as it needs Bumper replacement, headlight assembly and wiring, bonnet and the grill. So it's the complete set which needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps!! Also I would recommend you to talk to your SA once and check.
