Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd is known more for its Rugged looking UVs. However, with the XUV 500, they have gone all out and back to the drawing board. A transverse engine layout and front wheel drive in the two wheel drive version and torque on demand, ABS with EBD and Airbags with steering mounted controls make it an overall delight.
The XUV500 is as big and brawny as an SUV can get. The updated model gets a new black grille with chrome inserts. And although the shape of the headlamps remain unchanged, you now gets a very distinctive S-shaped LED daytime running lights built into them. The fog lamps now sit higher and within L-shaped chrome enclosures. Save for these updates, the design remains practically unchanged. There’s a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels that complement the XUV’s tall stance well.

The interior maintains a nice combination of tech and practicality. The centre console now gets a chic matte grey and metallic finish, and so does the gear lever. The driver’s seat gets a 6-way electric adjust and there’s a sunroof as well. It also features a 6.2-inch touchscreen that now supports Android Auto and comes bundled with 3D maps. The seats are large as expected from an SUV in this segment, and quite comfortable too. The second row has good amount of legroom, and even the third row is quite useable.
Fun fact, the 2.2-litre engine in the XUV is the same motor Tata uses in the Safari and the Hexa. Despite its bulk, the 140PS / 330Nm does enough to make the XUV fun. It’s known to shove you into your seat when you pin the throttle. You get the choice of a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual. We’d pick the automatic. You know, because we like our left knee.

The XUV500 can be had in W4, W6, W8, W10 variants. You get the option of an automatic transmission in all but the base variant, which we think is a great move. If you can excuse the lack of a sunroof, the W8 variant is the best bet. And yes, the automatic transmission is definitely worth the premium it commands.

Tata Hexa: Tata has been putting out some amazing cars lately and the Hexa is no exception. The stylish new SUV is a head turner for sure. It is superbly built and refined. The smaller footprint also helps it while manoeuvring in the city.

Innova Crysta: The Crysta has been a beacon of reliability. It scores well across all parameters from design to engine refinement to the comfort of the passengers. You also get a bevy of additional features. The Innova’s aftersale service is unparalleled to any other manufacturer. No wonder people still prefer this luxurious people carrier to big and cumbersome SUVs.

Like most Mahindra vehicles, the XUV offers a lot for the money. Quality is a bit of a hit or a miss, and there are known niggles too. But, that doesn’t take away from the fact that Mahindra’s big boy is a well-packaged SUV for those who love munching miles.
