Exterior is simply the best. A rugged, beastly, manly look. Roof Rails along with the bull guard gives a great exterior look to the vehicle.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)
Interior is not so attractive but it is upto the mark. steering wheel looks good. 3 Cigar lighter ports are available in first and second rows.
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox
Awesome power delivery, fuel economy is good, the gear shift pattern is bit new in this vehicle. Absolutely there is no lag till 120kmph.
Ride Quality & Handling
No jerks in potholes.. Amazing suspensions.. awesome off driving capability.. The best vehicle for Indian Roads.
Go for this SUV with no second thought. Obviously the 2013+ versions are better than the XUV - not in looks but in the vehicle durability, coz Mahindra engines lose power after they cross 1 lakh Kms.
Areas of improvement
Can add some bit of catchiness to the interiors. A tow clamp at the rear end should be provided. I have no idea why such a company like force did not provide a tow clamp for the vehicle in the rear end.
