After using the car for a few months, I have noticed that the doors are vibrating quite a lot now when music is playing on the stereo. I think the door speakers have become loose over time and need to be refitted or tightened. However, problems like
these are not expected from a car which is only a few months old. Poor build quality it seems.
Paint quality is terrible
My TUV is just 8 months old and already the paint has started peeling off from multiple body panels. I reported the matter to the dealership but they have not taken any action yet. Maybe the piece that has been sold to me is defective and if it is
the case then I will make sure Mahindra replaces my car with a new one as soon as possible!
Excellent car for long distance driving
Suspension is effective
I cross through some rough road patches while going to work and I must say the TUV is not affected by bad roads at all. The suspension is set up very well to absorb the most terrible and deepest of potholes. On uneven surfaces, the car does move
around a bit but only at high speeds. Go on a medium pace and it will behave just fine.
Third row missing
As I travel a lot with my 8-member family, the third row of seats for me is the best option compared to the opposite facing folding seats in the TUV. They do provide good luggage capacity but I do wish there was an option to get them replaced with
regular row-style seating.
Big, comfortable seats
A big plus point of buying an SUV is good, large seats and the TUV delivers on this requirement. Seating is very supportive and the positioning is also done correctly. However, they are a bit hard at the moment, probably because the car is new.
Maybe they will become softer with use.
Good value for money
The TUV is a pretty good deal for an under-10 lakh rupees SUV. It offers a decent number of premium features like Bluetooth, parking sensors and is reasonably good to drive around town. Where it scores maximum points, without doubt, is the build
strength and rugged SUV nature which makes it a tough car.
Crude effort from Mahindra
Storage spaces are useless
The TUV is no doubt a good car but it suffers from basic design flaws like the way the door pockets and other storage areas have been designed and placed. Bottle holders are too shallow and the rear ones can only be accessed by opening the rear
doors. Other storage areas are oddly placed.
Poor sound quality of the music system
Low mileage for a diesel
The company claims that the TUV will give close to 18 kmpl but it is not true at all. I have been using my TUV for six months now and I have not been able to get 18 kmpl even on the highway. In city, the average figure remains at 11 or 12 at the
most. Eco mode does not help either. Another case of fooling the customer through false claims.
On paper, the power figure of 81 bhp does not seem too bad. However, it is the weight of the car which makes all the difference. 81 bhp for a nearly 1600 kg car is just not enough to make it an enthusiastic, driver-friendly car. The car at any point
in time feels lazy and runs out of power very quickly. Things get worse when the car is loaded with people. It definitely needs more power to justify the Mahindra badge on it.
After making a rather good-looking, curvy and angular XUV500, why have they gone back to the old days with the TUV300? The car looks like it has been moulded from a box of metal and as if the designing was done using a ruler and other geometric
tools. It is just too weird when compared to its rivals like the EcoSport.
AMT option on an SUV
I was very surprised to see that Mahindra is offering the TUV with an AMT option as it was only available in small hatchbacks till now. When I went to the showroom I had gone with the intention of booking the manual option but as soon as I got to
know that the TUV is available with AMT, I straightaway booked the automatic option.
Until a few years ago Mahindra had a reputation for producing cars with virtually no styling. Now though, they have improved their game a lot and it is clearly visible in the way they have designed the TUV. The interiors are right there with any
other car in the same price range and they feel very fresh and pleasant. They are simple yet effective.
Engine is refined and smooth
The TUV is the first Mahindra that I have owned and I am very impressed both by the car and the brand. It does not even feel like a diesel car because it is very smooth and starts like a petrol car even when it is cold. The engine is very smooth and
the power output is pretty good too.
Solid, rugged SUV
The TUV is a very good example of why Mahindra is the best SUV maker in India. The car is very strong as my TUV was involved in an accident recently and to my surprise, my car was very less damaged compared to the other car. Even the panels like the
doors and bonnet feel heavy while opening and closing which show that the car is built to last for a long time.
AMT lacks smoothness
Simply providing an automatic gearbox option is not enough as it needs basic levels of refinement so that the gear changes are least noticeable. However, this is not the case with Mahindra. The AMT on the TUV feels as if a college project has been
taken and fitted directly. It is unexplainably jerky and slow.
Bad plastic quality
Mahindra needs to work harder as their design might have improved but the quality of the interiors, especially the plastics, needs more improvement. The panels still feel very cheap and even the fitting and finishing is not up to the mark. The car
is otherwise decent value for money.
Difficult to find and use switches
Not the best way for a brand to set itself apart. Unlike other car makers which put window and mirror adjust settings on the doors, Mahindra has placed them at odd places like under the handbrake and next to the steering on the dashboard. If someone
is new to the brand, be prepared for a frustrating time getting used to the new switch positions.
Easy to drive
The TUV is not exactly a small car. It is quite big and high as well. Despite this, it drives and feels like any other compact car and is easy to use even in congested areas. However, the dashboard feels a bit high compared to the driving position
which makes outside visibility an issue sometimes.
Luxurious Tough Utility Vehicle, full paisa wasool
Mahindra has designed this vehicle for all purpose. Iterior is beautiful, having power window. Mileage is good, almost 15km per litre. Ground clearance is more compare to Scorpio. This is having a 3 cylinder engine producing 84KW power.
Wheels are having tubeless tire. Automation is the key factor, you can know how much kilometre your vehicle can run with the fuel remained. After reserved fuel warning your vehicle can go upto 75 kilometre. Having 2 mobile charging point, fully adjustable front sheet. You can fold the back seat and can be used as cargo space. Driving is very much easy and simple. Overall very luxurious vehicle in this range.
