Pros : Looks, drive, entertainment system

Cons : Service

Look and Style : Aggressive and bold looks matching with international standards. Tough looks and a tougher metal frame. Unique styling doesn't need words to describe. 

Comfort: Unmatched comfort for the driver and co-drivers. Seats at a good height. Excellent road visibility. Rear seat 2nd row could have been better. 3rd row seats not meant for people with long legs. They are either for kids or short people. 

Pickup: Excellent pickup and noiseless engine. You don't hear the engine roar when you sit inside the vehicle. Climbs on ghats even on 3rd gear. Loads of power. Superb for off roading. Torque lets you enjoy long drives and highway drives are as comfortable as they never were. 

Mileage: 12kmpl in the city on average and 14.5Kmpl on the highway.  

Best Features: Touch screen infotainment system with accurate maps and directions and the looks of the car take all the credit along with tyre trionic feature which avoids tyre accidents or bursts. 

Needs to improve: Only 3 service centres in Mumbai. These could be increased to 6 to lower down waiting period and give customers a better experience. I have friends complaining about breakdowns but that happens because they rev the car to very high Rpm. This is an SUV which performs great at low and medium RPM. Up to 5000revs, there is no problem. I have already done 12000 kilometres on the car. 

Overall Experience: Amazing product. Can be compared to any other good SUV. Quiet competent. Overall winner
