Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    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

    MG Hector

    • Bigger 18-inch wheels fill the arches better
    • Additional features add convenience in the cabin
    • Recognition of Hinglish voice commands is fantastic
    • Petrol engine available with CVT and DCT automatic transmission options.

    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

    MG Hector

    • New dual-tone upholstery not available in all variants
    • Exterior changes are very limited
