Pros : Looks, interiors, total driving comfort

Cons : too many visits to the service centre for fixing minor problems in doors, lights, brakes, suspension


Look and Style: There is no doubt that the car has good appeal, commands respect and is an eye stopper.   

Comfort: The front seat is extremely comfortable. It would have been worthwhile if the second row was also given the same contours for the back rest. The third row is a straight seat and extra leg room can be created by tilting the second-row seat ahead only slightly.  

  Pickup: Pickup is good especially on highways when you need to overtake as the turbo kicks in correctly. The gear shift feels a little rough or rugged   

Mileage: It varies from 10kmpl to 13.5Kmpl depending on traffic, city and highway condition. Expect it to cost you between Rs4 to Rs5/- per km. I fill only is trustworthy Indian oil outlets.    

Best Features: Looks, alloy wheels, electronically operated rear view mirrors, reverse sensors, GPS, multiple power outlets in the car, AC controls middle and last row, cabin lights for reading and mood lighting, Bluetooth mobile connectivity.   

Needs to improve: Quality of suspension bushes, plastic frame that houses the headlights, coolant container etc, accessibility to change and replace bulbs driver side headlights, door handle mechanism, prevent seat belt rattling when not in use to reduce cabin noise.   

Overall Experience: Happy but apprehensive of future performance. Pamper your XUV and it will serve you well-Neglect it and feel neglected.
