Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Mahindra Thar

    • Attention grabbing design. Looks macho and has stronger road presence than ever before.
    • Available with petrol and diesel engines with a choice of 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions for both.
    • Design better suited for off-roading than before. Big improvements in departure angle, breakover angle and ground clearance.
    • More tech: Brake based differential locking system, auto locking rear mechanical differential, shift-on-the-fly 4x4 with low range, 7-inch touchscreen with off-road gauges, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay & navigation
    • Good quality interior with better practicality than before. The Thar is now more family friendly.
    • Improved noise vibration and harshness management. Doesn’t feel crude or outdated to drive anymore.
    • More configurations: Fixed soft top, fixed hardtop or convertible soft top, available as a 6- or 4- seater

    Mahindra XUV500

    • In terms of performance, the XUV500 is an all-rounder. It is not only a good highway mile muncher but is also perfect four regular city commute
    • 4WD option offered with both manual and automatic transmissions
    • Feature Loaded: Even the base variant of the XUV500 is loaded with features such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, all wheel disc brakes, powered wing mirrors, basic music system with 6-inch display, tilt steering, manual AC and all four power windows.
    • The XUV500 is the only SUV in its class to offer an automatic transmission with every variant except the base
    • The XUV500 has a lot of road presence thanks to its large dimensions and muscular design

    Mahindra Thar

    • Stiff ride quality. Deals with bad roads well but sharp bumps can unsettle the cabin quite easily
    • Old school ladder frame SUV and behaves like one. Loads of body roll even on mild curves
    • Some cabin flaws: Rear windows aren’t openable, pedal box leaves no proper space to rest your left foot even in the automatic & thick B pillars create large blind spots to the side
    • It’s a heavily improved/polished version of a hardcore off-roader but not an alternative to more practical, comfortable, feature rich compact/sub compact SUVs

    Mahindra XUV500

    • Petrol derivative available only with an automatic transmission
    • Quality of some of the switches and the AC vents aren’t up to the mark, especially when you consider the price of the higher-spec variants
    • The XUV500 is a can seat seven. However, the third row is not a comfortable place to be in. It is best suited for kids as there is not enough headroom, shoulder room or kneeroom for an adult to sit comfortably
    • The 4WD variant is exclusive to the top-spec W11(O) variant, which puts it out of reach for many buyers
    • With all seats up, the amount of space left for luggage is very less, barely enough for a laptop bag. Its rival, the Hexa, has enough room for some more bags
