    It is a best car in my life. I salute Mahindra for this car. The Mahindra has make a great family car, dashing ,and attractive classic car for the middle class people who's budget is from 10 to 15 lakhs which they afford on loan and EMI. The car is really auspicious and excellent service we get from mahindra.
