The Short Ride To The Nearby City

By Sachin Sharma for Mahindra XUV500

A year ago, one of my friend bought the new Mahindra XUV 500 in an off white color and asked us to take it out for a spin with him. A reason to drive? That too a new car? Yes, please. So we take the car for a 1000 km drive and thankfully it was a comfortable ride at least for the ones not sitting in the third row. To me, the third row seats of most of the SUVs are a little inconvenient and this one too felt quite jumpy on higher speed but since this is the new facelifted version of the XUV, this had better high-speed capability. Hence- comparatively less jumpy.

On to the looks, the new car has got better looks for sure. This one is a bit curvier around the edges and has less drama going around it. However, the fog lights could have kept a little plain. With a bigger touch screen on the infotainment system, black and beige interiors, and icy blue lighting theme and the new reverse camera are interesting additions for sure. The car gave a smooth ride all along apart from the jumpier bits I mentioned earlier. It has alright handling and isn’t too much of a pain to drive. I am not a fan of the car. Sadly, it’s just another car for me.

    Neighbour's envy...owner's pride

    I own a W6-2015....while buying I looked at all other options(Innova, Lodgy etc) and zeroed on in XUV500 because of its looks, interior quality, space between 1st and 2nd row, good engine capability. I wasn't disappointed when I first drove it....its smooth and fun to drive, is stable on curves, steering feel is quite comfortable, suspension is better than others Read More
