Q. Which is more strong and worth buying for 5 years between XUV 500 W9 AT diesel variant and Rapid DSG Style variant
  • XuV 500 any day! I am an owner since the last 6 years, the SUV has done close to 80K KMS and still rules the road. The performance, maintainance and road presence is unmatched. Manindra is more reliable vs. Skoda . Resale value of XUV is better than Rapid. Plus you get an SUV vs a Sedan.
  • Thank you Mr Devendar, I was little worried that some were saying that XUV 500 has gear box complaints and early suspension problems. What do you say as I’m planing for a automatic transmission one.
  • XUV500 will be best for you if you are looking for a very built car. It cruises at good speeds has great comfort and pretty safe. Also, you should not be comparing an SUV with a Sedan

Q. Which car is better, Scorpio or XUV500?
  • Mahindra Scorpio and Mahindra XUV500 ex-showroom price starts at Rs 10.0 Lakh for S3 (Diesel) and Rs 12.57 Lakh for W5 (Diesel). ... As far as mileage is concerned, the Scorpio has a mileage of 16.36 kmpl (Diesel top model) and the XUV500 has a mileage of 14.0 kmpl (Diesel top model). Scorpio is solid buld at affordable price . It has an option of 140 BHP. Wheras XUV500 is more of luxurious and stlyish. XUV is has caugh more attention from people who drive sedans. Both the vehicle has got thier own followers.
  • According to me XUV500 because its a great car there is no such issue. Scorpio has less space than XUV500 and Scorpio's suspensions are more stiffer than XUV500. Xuv500 is a family car it's not made for hard offroading but if you want a offroader than you can have Scorpio
  • Scorpio is a more rugged suv of the two. it has a body on frame chasis and is very reliable off the road scenes. It is a rear wheel driven car. XUV 500 on the other hand is an urban suv and is has a monocoque chasis. it is also front wheel driven car and is more premium and better in terms of ergonomics, comfort and safety. choice is for you to make between ruggedness and comfort.

Q. XUV500 W7 or W9 which one to buy , is sunroof and alloy experience worth for difference of INR 2L
  • Sunroof on Cars...Today sunroof is attached to many top of the range models in India and advertisements specifically point this out as a premium feature...Well, my experience...I had used three makes of SUVs with sunroof - namely Landrover Freelander, GMC Envoy and Nissan Armada... in a country with climatic condition of extreme heat and dust, high humidity, cold and some rain... over a period of 12 years...I found sunroof utterly useless. Can't keep it open because of high wind noise above 40kmph approx... one of the cars the Freelander, due to lack of moment of the sunroof, the surrounding rail got rusted and water leaked in.The only slight advantage I found was that during extreme winter, keeping the shade of the sunroof open lets in sunlight which is enjoyable, but, the same is easily compensated by the heater in the car air conditioning...I wouldn't therefore never again waste money on sunroof...
  • Just another perspective. most of the features of W9 can be installed in W7 by asking the service Center guys to install those as additional accessories or as spare parts and it would be well under 2 L difference. The only option that you are unlikely to get is the Sunroof. I feel that it's not important enough here in India. So it's your choice on how you want to spend your money. Looks can be made to match with that of W11 as well by buying parts from M2All.
  • See if you are addicted to sunroof then you can buy W9 but if you are okay without it then W7 is great and there is no such issue with normal times but with allow wheels it looks great.If you don't want sunroof then buy W9 and there is no such difference in between these two models
