Mahindra is a company that was battling an identity crisis, up until recently. The release of the monocoque Mahindra XUV500 (pronounced XUV five-double-o, not five-hundred) was the first vehicle in the brand’s modern resurgence.
The XUV500 broke from the traditional mould of vehicles designed to a very specific market of people that arguably didn’t care for modern car design. The XUV500 is the company’s global SUV product and shows that with a bit of effort, it’s possible to create legible vehicles to cater for global supply.
We jumped on a plane and went to India to test the Mahindra XUV500 on its native ground from Delhi to Agra, Agra to Jaipur and then Jaipur to Delhi. Is it any good? Tune in to find out.
