Pros & Cons of Mahindra XUV700 from an ex Maruti WagonR owner

The fuel efficiency figures on the MID hovers around 16 – 18 km/l.

BHPian StarVector recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

We welcomed XUV7OO MX Diesel into our family on 13 May. Had booked on Day 01, so got price protection. Took delivery from Salasar Autocrafts, Thane. Overall had an average buying experience with them. I found their response to be a tad slower. Although, they did match the insurance quote I had got from outside and did not push me to get accessories and an extended warranty from them.

One important issue I want to share is the lack of availability of accessories at the dealer as well as the online website M2all. The dealer had no stock of wheel caps, fog lamps and reverse cameras. Had to even cancel the order for wheel caps from M2all after waiting for 15 days. M&M is struggling to provide basic accessories even after 07 months after launch.

Coming to the driving experience. I upgraded after having driven 150K km on MS Wagon R, so it’s a giant leap for me in terms of space, comfort and driving dynamics. So far I have covered 600 km in the car and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Cons of Mahindra XUV700

One minor niggle observed so far is feeble noise from the left rear brake every time they are engaged at slow speed. Will get this checked out at the service centre shortly.

One more important feature missing as of now is the Android Auto update. Cars in the AX series have been updated to provide Android Auto, this feature (wired) is still to be extended to MX variants. Hope that M&M is able to roll out this feature as soon as possible.

Now coming to the important question of “Kitna deti hai?”, so far I have seen MID reading hovering between 16 – 18 km/l. I will get a more accurate indication when I take my car for the next fuel fill up. I am satisfied with the mileage so far and hope this will improve over time.

In a nutshell, I am happy with the decision I made. At Rs 15L OTR, the car offers excellent space, comfort and safety and for a person who is not looking for a feature-loaded car, MX variants are a good option.
