We bought the Mahindra XUV 500 in August 2018 after the facelift model was introduced. I really liked the looks of the XUV 500 Facelift and also its interior is very rich with leather materials and it even gets a sunroof. I have the XUV with the AWD system and it is one of my best purchase till date. I also own a Tata Tiago. Before purchasing the XUV, I was confused between Creta and Duster but then I got the XUV 500 as I found it to be better overall and also it can seat 7, so perfect for highway tours with family. I will share my ownership experience with pros and cons. Pros â€“ 1) Looks, 2) Interiors, 3) Space, 4) Features, 5)Off-road performance. Cons â€“ 1) Body roll, 2) Heavy to drive in City, 3) Diesel noise, 4) Mileage.
Hi, I own a 2011 Mahindra XUV 500. I bought this SUV in 2012, April 2012 to be precise. I own the diesel model, W8 trim with the AWD. This is a very heavy SUV but it is a gem to drive. I know the diesel engine clatters a lot since it is around 8 years old and also I have covered close to 90,000 kilometres on my car. The parts have started rattling a bit as it is a very old car but I have some really good memories with it. I live in Kanpur, UP but I have travelled the Northeastern states and also Nepal and Bhutan. The AWD of the XUV is very capable and it glides over the worst of the roads. When I bought this car, I had some complains with it, but Mahindra has corrected everything in the newer models and so I would say it is still the best SUV in India under 20 lakhs.
I own a 2018 Mahindra XUV 500. I Bought my XUV in October 2018 and it was the new facelift model which got a bump in power and design changes. I own the diesel model of the XUV 500 with the manual transmission. I have clocked around 22,000 kilometres on my car as I drive it extensively. I have even taken my car to Leh Ladakh in June and it was a memorable experience. The XUV 500 isnâ€™t very economical in the city but t delivers good mileage on the highway. On highways, it delivers close to 15-18 kmpl of mileage while in the city, it delivers 11-13 kmpl. The maintenance cost isnâ€™t also very much but since it is a diesel vehicle, the cost is on the expensive side. I am happy with my XUV and I donâ€™t plan to sell it anytime in the near future.
We own a first generation 2012 XUV500 here in Pune. Our ownership didnt really start off well due to niggling issues in the car. Let me cover points one by one - during monsoons, water started seeping in, electrical aids had issues, rear suspension gave way quickly and the AWD system was replaced multiple times. However, as years passed by, we started learning the art of living with a Mahindra and now 8 years and 95000km later, the XUV500 chugs along nicely. Engine is the strongest point here and most features like cruise control still work. That is a surprise for us. We are now looking forward to new XUV500 that most say will have not share anything with our current model. Also hope Mahindra has worked on customer feedback to remove little issues that can otherwise spoil an ownership experience. Fingers crossed
We are selling our 6 year old XUV500 after completing 85000km with it. Although the car served the purpose well, there were lot of teething issues that stated making our ownership experience slightly poor as time passed by. We also own a Innova and the service cost difference is shocking. Likewise, parts wear out fast and are more expensive to replace. We have also changed the air-con fan and left front power window motor. The tail light bulb fuses every month and the front bonnet sensor goes kaput easily which leads to false alarms. When we travel with family, last row comfort seems poor as the suspension has lot of vertical movement. So while the XUV500 is priced less, it has fair amount of shortcomings as well
