Solid and Rugged SUV
Look and Style: Yes, it indeed looks like a box but that's the military look - it gives the vehicle the rugged and strong look. But it's not that bad a look. Making it curvy would have defeated the purpose of a SUV.
Did a small test drive and found the seating to be comfortable. With the arm rest positioned correctly, the gear shifting was easy. But the gear itself seemed a bit tight but I cannot judge it at the moment because it was fairly a very small test drive.
Pickup: It was quick and I could feel the charge. Some reviews say it will reach 110 kms/hr very fast but above that it's slow, cannot and did not test that. But from my test drive, the pickup was indeed good and the steering was quite steady. I could go max only upto 70 km/hr due to the traffic, that too just reached 70 and slowed down.
All necessary features seemed to be available though personally I do not like the windows switches in the middle. Pricing is very less compared to the Creta and S-Cross, so that makes it more appealing. Would have loved to have the auto climate control, cruise control and push start. Push start is a must for such SUV's. Hopefully Mahindra will add it later.
Overall looks to be a winner!
