Mahindra XUV500 Review by Gowheel.com Editorial Staff

Mahindra XUV500Mahindra XUV500 was launched in September 2011 and received warm response with huge amount of bookings. It was a big hit for company. XUV500 stands tall and proud with looks which shame others which are priced at almost double the cost. This car has massive road presence and stuff like LEDs combined into head lamp or bulging rear simply add to whole package. Side profile is more natural and at more than one example, it did remind us of Mitsubishi Outlander! You also observe muscular design above wheel arches, typical Mahindra grille and twin exhausts which give proper hint of car’s capabilities. Other interesting bits include funky ‘paw’ door handles and sexy tail lamps with motif engravings. It would not be wrong to say that XUV500 easily produces more attention than its main competitors in this price band, Force One and Tata Aria.

Mahindra XUV500 Braking and Handling

 

Mahindra XUV500 Braking and HandlingOn straights, long wheelbase and aerodynamic front meant that it felt reassuringly stable even at top speed of an indicated 195 km/h. On hills, ESP provides you that extra confidence and this combined with low centre of gravity and minimal body rolls make SUV a joy to flick around corners. Our test car was a 2WD variant (front wheel drive only) and yet had did not make us feel nervous while pushing hard! This is unlike other Mahindra products like Scorpio and Xylo! Steering might not be very light for city usage or weight up perfectly at highway speeds but again for a Mahindra vehicle and at this price, overall driving experience is of highest possible order that one hopes! All disc brake set-ups along with electronic help adds to overall composed braking feel. That said, under hard braking, Bridgestone Duelers do squeal way too much. There are dual airbags for driver and front passenger and there are side and curtain airbags.

Mahindra XUV500 Wheels

Mahindra XUV500 Braking and HandlingMahindra XUV 500 runs on alloy wheels. 5-spoke 17” alloy wheels have a size of P235/65 R17 which are radial and tubeless. There is a spare wheel that has been concealed just below boot. Mahindra XUV 500 also has Tyre Tronics system that monitors tyre pressure and warns if there is a significant decrease in tyre pressure thus ensuring perfect air in tyres and greater mileage and safety.

Mahindra XUV500 Accessories

Mahindra XUV500 AccessoriesAll-new Mahindra car keeps occupants happy, safe and entertained well with its power, safety features and advanced audio system. Besides XUV 500 has a 6” monochrome DIS infotainment system (color touchscreen on XUV 500 W8 4WD) that keeps all information regarding car, music and other stats. It is voice command activated. This Mahindra car comes with CD/MP3 player on base variant and there is a DVD Player on W8 and W8 4WD. An iPod can also be attached to music system. Volume control of music system is also there on steering. Automobile comes with combined four speakers one on each door apart from 2-tweeter on dashboard.

Mahindra XUV500 Driving Impressions

Apart from being fitted with equipment and an up-to-date design which are easily perceived by prospect buyers, Mahindra Motors has put in a lot of work under skin of XUV too. So, it is now a contemporary monocoque design suspended on MacPherson struts upfront and a multi-link setup at back side. This is what most contemporary cars follow allowing better dynamic technologies thanks to all four ends having a lot of freedom of movement of their own. And benefits show instantly on XUV. Having a tauter, more responsive steering helps, of course, but the fact that there is not a hint of nervousness in XUV’s handling, is a huge positive. Now we drove Mahindra from Mumbai to Delhi over different types of roads. It did not show thumb down on any road. Car was being run mostly on three digit speeds, even around fast bends; something that was never tried on Scorpio.

Pros

I. Fantastic looks

II. High equipment levels

III. Best Mahindra yet

IV. Excellent value for money

V. Spacious interiors

Cons

I. Gearbox not smooth

II. Dynamics not class best

III. Interior quality still patchy

IV. Long waiting periods

Verdict

XUV500 fetches excellent value at this price and though this is only introductory price, features provided by Mahindra are usually seen in cars much higher in pricing. Global DNA is very much there and it is only a matter of time before automatic model comes out. However some interior bits are not up to the mark, this is the best car from Mahindra and is a big leap forward in design and handling department. There is no way you can go wrong with XUV500.
