Detailed Mahindra TUV300 Review

What's Good?

Exterior ♥ Looks Boxy. Easy to clean it manually :) ♥ Feel proud while people pitching their eyes on my Jarvis. ♥ Good in Ground Clearance. Not to bother about damaged roads. ♥ Curve edge head lamp helps at turnings which is first in class in all segments. Helps far better in prompt curves and interior grid roads and hill bends etc., Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) ♥ Spacious for 5 seater. Best in class 6 & 7th passenger's jump seater. ♥ Seating is higher than XUV leads good road clearance and confident driving skills. ♥ Front comfort and dash board feel atmost elite looks for passengers. ♥ Hand rest helps long drive comfort. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox ♥ Best in class performance while comparing to Xylo, Travera, Duster & Eco sport. U can start move direct to 2nd gear 'coz of awesome Micro Hybrid technology. ♥ Gear box transmission feels hamper. ♥ I look for performance, hence my mileage level doesn't surprise me. If mainting promt speed, u can maintain 17Km/Litre. Ride Quality & Handling ♥ I used to travel up & down 1000Km on 2days. Previously I owend hatch back and I'll maintain 70-80Km/Hr during rain. But in my Jarvis, I just drove constantly 90-100 Km/hr even after driving in to heavy rain (2 days before chennai flood!!). I'm damn confident on road clearence and assurance of visibility during rain. Head light reaching zone also promptly rectangle visibility for road assistance. Fog lamps really helping huge here!! ♥ U cab feel the bulky weight of the car till 3000Kms by driving often. Later on u'll stream line to it. Then you can feel the awesomness of Handling. Final Words I researched like others for more than 2 years. I was much awaited and so confident on Ford Figo aspire and got disappointed after inspecting & felt even not spacious for adult 5 seating. Then I gone for my secondary options I20, Xcent, Etios cross, Honda Jazz, Ertiga & Sail sedan. Inspected and compared one by one and shortlisted (I preffered only for Diesel). ♦ Honda Jazz - Rejected due to the price which reaches Ertiga's 7 seater price (10Lakhs.) ♦ Xcent - The Best Diesel car. But failed to accomodate 5 adult seating comfort. Hence rejected. ♦ Sail sedan - I was totally upset on its performance after first drive. Price also nearing to SUVs. Hence, rejected. Finally I came to a top 3 conclusion ordered I20, Etios cross & Ertiga and I processed comparing every day in every sites, its reviews & user reviews. At that time, I came to know that, the TUV300 has launched. While I booked for I20 second test drive, I went before that for a view of TUV300 and surprisingly test drive vehicle is free to go. I drove it and I cancelled my second test drive of I20 and all my mind records. This is the car for me fullfills which I expect. Though Ertiga is Maruti branded, 3rd row seater not good for tall peoples. Duster, Ecosport are expensive than TUV300.

What can improve?

Areas of improvement 1. Windows slide very slow. Surprise missing a future from Quanto has fast slide window at driver side. 2. Gear shifting is not smooth. Though I'm mostly taking for long drive, it's not a concern. 3. Lock/Unlock Remote accessing distance is worst. Not even working away from 20-30 feet. 4. Automatic window lock, Automatic A/c, Rear camera are the major console missed. Same like ford, if M&M recalls TUV300 to update these futures, then this will make a firm reach with public. 5. Last but not least, Dealership worst as I noticed in all reviews. It's so sad as being a Indian company who requested our PM for using Scorpio and failed for a prompt dealership assistance. Ashame and shocking how a company is not adopting a standard system of procedures and customer satisfaction. I'm the example as Not even a single expectations from the dealer satisfied so far for me. I came to know that few more cars are going to launch. If your launching pad fails, u can't reach your goal. All the very best for upcoming tasks and keep on cheerishing your users like us by updating the accessories with good packages like Ford. Thanks for my Jarvis !!!
