Best suv in the indian market in the manual category.When it entered the market the existing suv worth 30 lakh didn't have it's features.

I call the car Miss Swift, she is really quick at accelerating, and great to climb up hill sections, 'Ghats' as we call them in Maharashtra. Leaves all types of cars including imported ones behind when climbing up slopes. But on our highways its best not to drive at more than 120 kmph, because of sudden appearance of hazards like cattle, jaywalkers e.t.c. Although I have driven her at 150kmph, it does feel unsafe. Braking action is good up to 100kmph. She is a driver's car, would hate to sit behind and let someone else drive her. The family loves the spacious interiors and the ride comfort.

I have an XUV500 W11 (O) variant. I'd heard from many people that this car is not good, it has monocoque does not have ladder chassis, is not for off road and what to know, but I have myself driven from Varanasi to Goa and Goa to Varanasi drove, about 4200 km and it was a very comfortable journey which also had six passengers. I also did offroading but never felt a lack of power. The only boot space is disappointing. The rest of the car has no shortage anywhere. This is my best buy SUV.
Good car, Safe on Roads, Low maintenance cost, Spares are Cheap, Interiors need to be revamped completely, New Model 2019 has better Exterior, but previous one was not bad, Dashboard needs some better color combination, Plastic quality of interiors needed to be improved, New colors should be introduced, Dual tone interiors should have options. I had driven it on Long routes, Trips from Nagpur to Goa, Hyderabad, Pune, Bidar, Satara, Jabalpur etc.
