I had read a lot about how bad this car is, but, after reviewing the market well I bought the XUV 5OO. So, far touch wood the experience is wonderful. This might be because all/most of the issues were fixed in the 2013 model.  

 Look and Style : Quite a personal opinion but I do not see any other car can even come close to the road presence and looks of the XUV.  

Comfort :  Huge seats in front and maximum space in the middle.  The drive is smooth too.

 Pickup : Excellent.  

 Mileage : So far getting around 12Kmpl in the city. But I guess it will increase on long drives.

Best Features : No one has such a package at such a price.   

Needs to improve : Maybe the perception of people that it has too many issues and also, its customer service.   

Overall Experience : Fantastic.

    Please note that for AWD variant, the available colours are White, Black, Gray and Purple. Black and Gray are not acceptable mostly to Hindu�s due to religious sentiment. So we are with white and purple to choose. White is very common colour used for taxies & politicians. If some does not like purple have no choice. Hence I request Mahindra to think and introduce another colour like Artic Blue. Introducing a Artic Blue in AWD variant will be a good idea. M& M should consider it.

    i wish to busy this car, but when i gone through all reviews i was completely disappointed!!! i knew some XUV owners and had faced issues with this car, but i do not know the new 2013 model as you said. but ur comments are not so genuine for a mislead ed person like me to grab my confidence level high!!! still searching for a genuine answer or i will go for duster!!!

    XUV does start after washing :) atleast mine does.... I guess you should check with other XUV owners. Yes, there were bad reviews of XUV at the start... but what were they.. They were mostly do with the electronics and gadgets they had. Not about the engine, comfort, pickup or anything. Now, I understand that they changed their vendors and the quality has improved. I did a trip from Bangalore to Goa and touch wood... it was superb. Driven 3K kms now and so far ... great experience. Now, I am not M & M paid to influence anyone to buy Duster or XUV... its any individual's choice. Hardly anyone writes a review when they are satisfied... everyone writes review when they are pissed off :) I am not here to give confidence to anyone :) ... If your budget is abouve ~23L+ there are lot of options.. that's a different market. :) enjoy

    I do not think there is something called Best car.... for any condition. You speak to different people and the Best is different for them... :) If you see different travel magazines... XUV is one of the best once in that segment. Duster, Safari Storm are also good vehicles. On a little higher side Endeavour is great indeed.
