Mahindra road test reviews

We have always loved the Logan as it is a no non-sense car and we were happy to get the Verito
Mahindra & Mahindra is one of India’s largest utility vehicle manufacturer has been diversifying its current portfolio into other segments. The company had bought over the Logan and rebadged it as the Verito, even took over the Reva brand.
Going with the current trend of Mini-SUV and many manufacturers are running pillar to post to get their car models in the firing range, the latest entrant being the Mahindra Quanto. The biggest reason for manufacturers aiming for such vehicles is the tax exemption of around 12% on Excise duty on a
Pondicherry might be India?s French connect city, but the Logan is the first successful French car in our market.

The muscular and rugged Xylo was the first MPV (Multi Utility Vehicle) from Mahindra’s stable. It was launched a couple of years back and was sold in good numbers. The Xylo was the only alternative to the MPV from Toyota, the Innova. The outgoing Mahindra Xylo was known for its reliability and spaci
