Cons : Interior

Look and Style: The looks are good

Comfort: Not that great

Pickup: Average

Mileage: Average

Best Features: Looks

Needs to improve: Interiors need to be improved.

Overall Experience XUV 500 W4 - It looks similar to the W6 and W8 externally, except for features that it doesn't come with - like alloy wheels, foglamps etc. The biggest setback is the W4 interiors. Dashboard area around the music system has poor finish and poor quality plastic. It's definitely a put off. Fabric seat covers are of sub-standard quality. What's worse is the fact that there are no accessories available for the W4 - Accessories like fog lamps, reverse camera, reverse sensors, DVD player doesn't exist with Mahindra . Once you sit inside the W4 you realize that it's no value for money

    My XUV 5OO suddenly stopped in the middle of the city & clutch pedal was not coming back to the normal position. After some time I managed to put the vehicle in 1st gear & parked on the side of the road. The vehicle was towed to the nearby Mahindra workshop, 'TVS & Sons Ernakulam' and after a couple of days Mahindra dealer said that the clutch & flywheel are damaged and need replacement. The cost quoted was around Rs 40,000 and asked me to pay. My vehicle is still under guarantee, but the Mahinrda dealer 'TVS & Sons Ernakulam' has informed me that 'clutch & flywheel' are not covered under the guarantee. Even though the vehicle is done only 26,000 km, they say this is not due to manufacturing defect !!!. Moreover the spare clutch & flywheel are not available with the Mahindra dealer and I am waiting for the last 10 days to get it repaired and have no idea when the spares will be available and when this will be repaired. The Mahindra dealer advised me to contact Mahidra directly regarding the issue. When I contacted Mahindra, they advised me to contact the Mahindra dealer !!! Unfortunately I am one of the earliest owners of Mahindra XUV5OO and bought the car without waiting for the users feedback and got carried away with the looks & 'WORLD CLASS' slogan by the manufactures, Mahindra.
