Bolero

Base Price:
₹ 6,98,336
Rating 5.7/10
Bolero has been since long the best selling MUV in India, though now its facing stiff competition in sales numbers from Hyundai's Creta. Bolero lacks the modern touch one expects for an urban SUV and is quite outdated while lacking overall comfort. However, the simple and tough construction means its can take on years of rough use and that makes it quite utilitarian. Maintenance is very much on lower side which has helped Bolero earn a good reputation in rural market. Bolero is a "Rural Ruler".
Verdict
e2o

Base Price:
₹ 5,95,657
Rating 5.1/10
Mahindra's E2O is an electric car which comes with its own set of characteristics. Its cerainly eco friendly and has zero tail pipe emissions. However, the initial cost is too high and the range is limited making it a good second city car. The technology can be scaled up for future betterment.

Quanto

Base Price:
₹ 6,77,680
Rating 5.4/10
Quanto is derived out of Xylo, but with smaller wheels it does look a bit out of proportion considering how tall it is. Handling also needs improvement. But on the whole, solid underpinnings means it can handle abuse and shall still serve for long. Improving upon rough edges, Quanto has a lot of potential considering its compact size and massive presence. Arrival of Mahindra's TUV300 makes a look at Quanto a bit difficult affair
Verdict
Scorpio

Base Price:
₹ 8,97,358
Rating 6.9/10
Mahindra's first indigenous effort, Scorpio has won a fan following. Engine, driveabiltiy, ease of maintenance and good overall value made Scorpio a success. Handling and ergonomics could do with improvement and the overall bodyshell needs to be more robust.
Verdict
Scorpio Getaway

Base Price:
₹ 8,40,525
Rating 5.7/10
More of a statement than utility, Scorpio Getaway is a nice concept for adventurous urban folks. Nice engine, practical nature and low maintenance helps the product get recognition. But one cant avoid to feel that its getting long in the tooth, and more comfort would certainly be welcome.
Verdict
Thar

Base Price:
₹ 5,21,955
Rating 6.5/10
Based on Scorpio chassis, Thar is out and out offroading SUV. Designed purely with offroading in mind, Thar comes as a capable adventurer and with recent updates, can easily serve as a daily drive too. Fit and Finish could do with some imrovment and more safety features are much needed. As an offroader, nothing to find fault with it though.
Verdict
TUV 300

Base Price:
₹ 6,98,000
Rating 6.5/10
TUV300 is a body-on-frame car unlike most of its competitors. It has all the right boxes ticked for the segment and the sales figures are agreeable. Urban driveability is good, though, engine could have been more powerful. Interiors and overall quality are a giant leap for Mahindra. Now its also available with a more powerful engine in top end variant.
Verdict
Verito

Base Price:
₹ 6,78,034
Rating 5.9/10
Erstwhile Logan, Verito is an updated model of Logan with few improvments. The best part, ride and handling, are thankfully left untouched. Engine offers good driveability, space is excellent for its segment and overall, Verito is practical buy. Fast forward, and Verito is outdated as compared to rivals which are far more appealing
Verdict
Verito Vibe

Base Price:
₹ 6,02,944
Rating 5.9/10
Mahindra''s attempt to modify Verito to bring it under 4m length to qualify as small car, Vertio Vibe could not strike a chort with car buying public. The car itself is quite practical and boot space isn't bad at all. However, the car shows its against much modern and easily more accomplished competition. Available only in diesel
Verdict
XUV 500

Base Price:
₹ 11,46,621
Rating 7.1/10
The first monocoque effort by Mahindra is a great step forward. Offering more value than its competitors, XUV 500 is a success. M&M kept it competitive working on consumer feedback, and the latest one is available in automatic also. It's a fantastic highway cruiser. However, the interior plastic quality needs some improvement.
Verdict
Xylo

Base Price:
₹ 8,33,986
Rating 6.3/10
Mahindra's take on Innova, Xylo offered space which still remains unrivalled in MPV segment. Performace and efficiency are better than segment leader and so is the refinement. Xylo has been updated in its lifecycle and is a strong value for money contender in MPV segment. Handling needs alot of improvement though.
