Default Re: Need Advice on Toyota Innova vs Mahindra XUV 5OO vs Mahindra Scorpio

  2. Is the XUV 5OO more prone to mechanical failure compared to the Toyota Innova? I read on TeamBHP that they (Mahindra) have fixed a lot of niggles and issues?
  3. While driving the TD car, the XUV 5OO's engine noise was very harsh and audible on the inside as well. Is the same true for the normal XUV's? Also, the TD car had done close to 17,000 kms and the dashboard was also rattling over bad roads.
  4. Could the Scorpio be considered as well? Is the ride quality good on potholed roads? Not to exagerrate but, our entire roads are covered with potholes, from our house to the town.

Thank you all for taking the time to help out
A simple answer to all your questions is a BIG NO to XUV or Scorpio if you found Innova's ride to be bumpy. Period.

Agree. Xuv is not good over potholes as it has lot of lateral movement. Innova will be a better choice. Xuv is a cruiser on tar road. There is no harsh engine noise or in cabin rattling after 40k in my xuv. Take a test drive over potholes and you can decide yourself.
