Pros : Superb Quality, Power and Style, good fuel efficiency.

Cons : Higher Price.

Look and Style: Mahindra XUV 500 will be a sporty SUV, It seems to be an attractive and well-balanced SUV with it's big and macho looking wheel arches. I think XUV 500 with it's uniquely shaped and carved grille looks stunning. Both the interior and exterior of the car make it stylish and different from other cars of the same SUV segment. 

Comfort: In my opinion, Mahindra XUV 500 will be one of the best cars with its high-end comfort level in the SUV segment. I feel it will be a premium SUV as it will adorn with a masculine body like SUV and high-end comfort features which give the experience of a sedan. The driver seat might be electronically adjustable in addition to retractable ORVM’s and features like power steering, power windows and dual-zone climate control system makes it a special one in SUV's. 

Pickup: As the XUV 500 will come packed with high power engine which will provide high acceleration. I think the new XUV 500 will accelerate to 100 Kmpl in a very short span of time. 

Mileage: Mahindra claims to offer a mileage of 12 Kmpl in the city and 14 kmpl on the highways. I hope the company will keep their words and deliver such high fuel efficiency with its XUV 500. 

Best Features : The macho looks complementing with the excellent power and performance with huge safety features. It's exterior and interior both provides a stylish and impressive look with comfort and power. 

Needs to improve: Price needs to be reduced as the Scorpio of Mahindra and Mahindra in same SUV segment priced below 14 lakh. 

Overall Experience: I think Mahindra XUV 500 will be an excellent car for the car buyers. It will provide all the features and performance which a car buyer wants in his or her car.

    Front look world class, side looks not bad, rear looks acceptable. Nice range of colors. Pricing not bad at all. Remains to be seen how it will sustain over the years on some aspects that we cannot conclude with a test drive. If you are a early mover trust Mahindra's experience in building vehicles for Indian conditions and also high quality requirements for the Global launch. I think this will turn out to be a good SUV in that price range, given that there is no offering at all in that range. Might potentially trigger price cuts from others. Looks and priced too good to be true, hope it lives up.
