Q. Can we compare XC90 with land Cruiser Prado?
  • No prado is in a different league..a real off roader.xc 90 has q7 ,range rover discovery as its rivals. Thanks.
  • Yes
Q. I want to buy a safest SUV in the range of 50-70 lakhs in terms of road safety. Which is most suitable in this? If luxury comes with safety I will be more than happy.
  • Well, talking about safety, all the premium car manufacturers are engaged in a competition form making their models safer than others, so you should not be woried about the safety standards of these segment. If you are looking for just safety, comfort and luxury then you can go for Volvo XC90. and XC 90 is really vallue for money and considered as one of the safest car in the world. if you are a fan of performance and offroading with safety comfort and luxury your choice will be mercedes, Bmw, Audi and land rover. among these four my choice is land rover. You can go for an entry level model of land rover ( like discovery, dicovery sport or evoque). land rover is just more than value for money. As im having Xc 90 and land rovers in my garage i always prefer to drive land rovers most. because they provide a good appealing design, extreme luxury, extreme performance , comfort and safety respective to the money you spend. My humble opinion is " if you are planning to buy a premium segment car then you shouldnt be looking for safety, your concerns should be on performance and luxury featue because all the manufacturers in this segment is well reputed when it comes to safety." i hope my answer will be helpful for you. good luck.
  • Xc 60 will be my answer.Range rover discovery would have been the answer but it lacks simple things like gprs connectivity.
  • Mg gloster and BMW X5
Q. Is it better then BMW X5?
  • Design wise x5 had brought the coupe concept a trend setter.xc90 2019 is totally different..its upgradecan be seen I'm all spec..from7 seater to weight.Like it has trimmed.Electric on the is a macho while xc 90 has a subtldesign. Excellent voice insulation,top notch safety features.Polite dealers and good after sales experience. Thanks.
  • To me yes

  • Great styling and comfort. Very comfortable and adjustable 7 seater. Loved the minimalistic interior. Loved the MMI- SENSUS and interiors. Air suspensions are great with ride height adjustment, but we can feel the thuds on sharp pot holes. Also, could be more punchy / responsive engine on dynamic or comfortable mode.
