Merits of the car : Mileage - 15 in city and 20 in highway (Diesel)

Comfort for driver - Car is very comfortable and the driver gets good confidence while driving at high speeds as the vehicle is very stable and planted onto the road at all times and speed

Comfort for passengers - Due to the high seating position of the car, all the passengers in the car can sit comfortably in the car with good leg and shoulder support and room

Long Drives - Long drives are never a strain in this car though it is a hatchback due to its smooth ride

City Driving - The car is very easy to drive within the city in heavy traffic and does not require frequent change in gears, one can drive from 30 to 70 km per hr speed in third gear without any issue

Looks - Excellent stylist looks from all angles, at least different from old boring designs of Maruthi

Second Row comfort - Due to the full flat floor the third passenger as well as all other passengers in the second row are very comfortable throughout the journey

Demerits :

Breaks - Though its enabled with ABS as a standard for all models sometimes passengers tend to move forward if you apply the break suddenly due to the high seating and suspension set up

Storage spaces - To accommodate the 6th passenger in the front row and the gear lever on to the dashboard, Mahindra has not provided any storage spaces in the dashboard (no space or hole to even keep a phone) which is a pity in such a good car. Space provided in the doors also is not enough as they are very small and can only fit in a cleaning cloth, book or a map and nothing more

Fit and Finish - Overall fit and finish of the dashboard, painting etc are good but however there are few areas where they could focus more so that the finishing is better compared to the competition right now, hence they improve more in terms of finishing in many areas

Wheels - 14 inch wheels looks very small when compared to the overall size of the car from the sides, minimum 15 inch is required

Side skirts or door cladding - Very less door cladding is provided which is not enough as it does not protect the mud smeared on the doors while driving in high speeds

Infotainment - Very bad quality of speakers have been used, need to use better quality speakers

Distance to empty and Average Fuel efficiency details should be a standard across all variants and should be displayed in the speed o meter and not in the entertainment unit

Side stalks for steering - Poor quality side stalks have been used

Hope this review helps future buyers, happy motoring
