Interesting! Mohamed Shan Any idea?
cool car..looks kiddish n sporty?
down on bhp……
super uber cool car..
This could be a Gr8 Seller!
Well I mean, Yeah it is lookin’ great but ain’t it less powered as it is lookin?
If ground clearance is like SUV then hat’s Off.
wow looks really cool.
Adobe Photoshop Transform tool used to Pull the Fiesta Desing and Designed a new SUV… lol jus kidding.
Could have added one more variant with a powerful motor.
Yes why not if thsi Suv is prperly priced with good mileage and with lots of features and with good A.S.S..den surely this will b 1 of d best seeling Suv from Ford.more powerful engines r expected woth more bhp. waiting for the launch of Figo the Eco Sport.compare to premier rio it is a better looking.
Ford Rocks , I will sure replace my figo with Eco Sport…done deal.
if they could have a 100+ bhp turbo diesel and 4x4l…this car will set the Indian market on fire!
Why the sad face grille? Ford could work on that….
very smart looks.
ford ma frvt
hmmmm vry nyc…. 2012 is vry lucky 4 youngsters…
Ford going Mahindra’s way….awesum looks, very less power, within budget….. it wld definitly sell in mass…
hope it comes with Shift on the fly 4wd.
This car will be best in hatchbach +mini suv segment
simply amazing work by m&m
simply amazing work by m&m
osmmmmm sexo car…………………
Better than Aria atleast.
looks like Xyla except front look..
Still hating that round rear… not that all round rears are bad Somehow it’s not finished well with some good creases. Moreover, I just wonder why most part of the back light (rear glass) is blacked out with a stupid looking oval to see. Hmm… rest very impressive. As I mentioned earlier on another post, in the front there are way too many…[Read more]
Btw, not taking away any credit from Mahindra for rest of the work except the above and backseat design/space problem
Sai Bhai, dats d most impressive video I have ever seen…..Congo. U rock man.
awesome………… I want XUV500.
From Current scorpio to new one is awesome need own ASAP…
Mahindra….XUV 500….just Awesome SUV….countless eyecathing features in just…9-12 lakh…..chk it out…you ll surely get astonished.. superb…
This SUV is just amazing…..!!!!! WOW!!!!
Now more confused about which car to buy…XUV 500 sounds like a sure winner.
Even for a person hooked on to European (read German) engineered vehicles, this seems pretty good. I know its sold out already, but a good one to keep a watch on and YES they do have RED. The only thing is, I don’t want to be driving the same vehicle half the Indian politicians might pick
It looks good on the road too…good one….
The bookings are closed for XUV5OO.they have met their 4 months of production plan in 1st month..chill madi:)
The Best Review I ever seen, even better than some of the Auto shows journalist.. Sir But Please Do Post Some offroading Reviews would love to see it.
super fantastic car……….
DAM what a caaaaaaaaaaar……….
Just go for it, don’t think twice!!! Its an awesome VFM option in the 10 to 13 lac segment
And the Monster seems to deliver the killer blow quite easily!
this is enough for mahindra to leave for some years.
Really awesome crossover.

Best Compe for the rest……..
go for X1
always feels nice to watch this nice leopard

AWASOME car it is.
PLS REOPEN BOOKINGS IN ALL OTHER CITIES LIKE KOLHAPUR……….WE R WAITING FOR IT….
like this suv mahindera car â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢.
isn’t it look like small modifictions at local shop on an outdated design.come on mahindra drop it n make new one.
No doubt verito is fully packed with features but Mahindra can never compete with other cars as verito got the most ugly looks as compared to other sedans coming with same price tag.
it, isrealy oooosom
it sucks.. the car looks terrible.. It can’t compete..I’d rather buy a hatchback than this junk…It looks like the Logan.. but even that was terrible…. I wonder what it’s sales % might b..
I have just 3 words for this amazing Ad:
wot a waste of time :/
I think look wise its batter as compare of its old model.
BAKWAAS WORST CAR….. ITS BETTER TO BUY I 20……
Mahindra should change it’s design…. If we look at in 7 lakh segment…we have much better sedan Manza , Etios , fiesta classic , Dzire & new sunny… …. But if we look in SUV segments…Mahindra is going to rock after launching XUV 500… so they should leave it old design of logon by renault.
Its a dead horse..let it go. “executive’ badging? wow. Its a super ugly car, nothing is going to help it. They should have understood this earlier..
This is a failed model design of Renault that has been “dumped” into India just like the Logan !!!
@[586375758:2048:Ajay Danait] just like logan? I thought this was the logan..
@[719201282:2048:Jeetendra Jagwani] True …
Nobody is asking for anything too much from Mahindra… A minor modification to the front so that someone can ride it without shame. That’s all and hurray, a great car is born!
most appropriate comment, Ravi… looks like some cheap mods done on a junk yard car..
DAmn old fashioned look!!!! they need to get something better than this if they need to stay in this segment!!!!
Instead Mahindra can concentrate in making it an attractive cabby car..the Indicab took the hatchback market by storm..maybe this car can rule the sedan cab segment. Few takers would be willing to buy this car for their personal use how much ever branding Mahindra puts in!
So ur not the verito man
@[100002256468580:2048:Gayathri] ..I’m happier being the FIESTA man!!
Small correction… These are actually 5 spoke alloys
oih cool luk n high mileage.
Just bcs of looks…..
if people r still confusd den dey need to change there mindset…..
This is just the start for Nissan. And the present Sunny is the Petrol variant. I am surprised that there are 659 cars sold despite the erratic petrol price. The Diesel version should give us the precise picture.
its quite difficult to gain the confidence nd faith of peeps… Nd the engines were gud but undrpower…
1. Not suitable for small cities coz of size and poor after sales service.
2. Only petrol variat available for now.
let the diesel come, we indians will show our buying power….
should do well once the disiel variant is launched.
bad looker, no for me…
when we are expecting in diesel…………
people would nt go for dis car as it is of nissan…nissan services r very poor!
perhaps now nissan will listen, given the way they say & understand a CAAAAAR.
Also the diesel model needs to be starting from 6.25L to make right noise in the market.
They also need to correct Micra prices by about 50K.
People are quite clear. Below Rs.10 lakh, 7 out of 10 buyers would go either for a Maruti, Hyundai or Ford than new brands like VW, Nissan.. Reason? Buyers are concerned about resale value, after sales and services, spare parts cost. Only in the luxury segment, can the people have a free mindset for they have surplus cash to experiment buying new…[Read more]
Remember the premium pricing Nissan demanded for Micra? Its starting at 5.72 lakh for base variant and Rs.6.17 lakh for the top-end variant whereas the petrol variants starts at Rs. 4.10 and ends at Rs. 5.38. If the same pricing strategy followed in Sunny, they would offer just two variants, base variant at Rs. 8 lakh and top-end variant at Rs. 8.6 lakh
Actually, the market size for Sunny like cars is more than 1,500 units a month. Hence, this is pretty low. Further, if the first month sales haven’t been that great.. it simply shows the car in itself doesn’t attract that much… this is just my opinion…
Gyanendra Singh Rajput, You can get the vehicle from Mumbai.
I think Nissan will get over it in matter of time…yes, its true that Nissan as a commuter car maker is pretty alien to the subcontinent and As a MNC company I hope they realize the bitter truth.
For Nissan, Innovation and strategy is good technique in applying for the new car makers in the huge markets like us because even if you try harder on…[Read more]
Then they must get ready to face the heat… I’ll buy Manza instead
when u r concernd abt resale den buy second hand car ok….dnt compare nissan with maruti n hyundai……nissan havg its class n above ur maruti n hyundai ok….apart from resale value n spare parts, yes it z new n once hyundai n maruti was new in d market n ppl had accptd it….try to lyk n accpt changes in the market to kill monopoly in d maket ok…..
in whole of delhi NCR I saw only one nissan dealership.
hell even VW has more.
I always follow these rules.. and the result is that I can get mileage upto 21KM/Ltr of Petrol some times…..on my HONDA CITY i-VTEC…..
I will try and follow as much as I can thanks dws auto for this.
over and above these tips, try and use car pool, it will save you some petrol cost…
WHEN U THOUGHT U KNEW EVERYTHING!
Thanks! I’m going to follow this & see how much my Fiesta gives me!
abhijeet first time hearing dat honda city is givin avg of 21km/ltr
tnxx dws for providing us with such good tips.
“smartly use the AC”.
Can anyone elaborate on this?
awesome tips…. m going to try it out……
it shud be 21km per 2 litres of petrol!
GREAT….I WILL PUT DOWN TO USE RIGHT AWAY?
well dnt purchase ant vehicle u will save a lot of money for your bright and better future…………as fuel prices r hikihing vehciles r nt affordable also cng/lpg prices may hike……vehicle maintance, parking charges, toll nakas, traffic, pollution……..lots of money u can save if u will not purchase any vehicles…..
Hrishi Acharya : I totally agree with you..
Sirji, mistake se space aagya CARPOOL !!!
I follow most of this, and I get around 18-20 for my ritz diesil in city..
yes good one!
so bye using this I can reduce my car petrol bill.
i will follow ji heeeeeee.
Switch off the AC button when the car is cool enough. This applies to cars without climate control. If the car is equipped with automatic climate control, set the car to optimum temperatures to prevent the compressor from running for a long time
Amruth Ganesh LOL Even the ARAI certified mileage is lesser than that
what’s the meaning of carpool?
Akash Shetty go google it
Smartly use the AC means we should avoid keeping AC ON on signals,you can also keep AC power at min here… lower rpm lower AC…at higher rpm it doesn’t matter
thanks DWS for nice tips.
Even Better, Keep the Damn Rickshaws off the road, No congestion, No road rage, No frustrated Drivers, No Bottle necks, even the BEST drivers are very calm and better fuel average, I realised our problem really is Very High percentage of Idiots on the Street, and not an inadequate road infrastructure.
I try to switch off engine when stopping at a light or when not in use for more than 1 min. I try to avoid minimum use of AC. This can also help in saving some amount of fuel.
gud thinking g.
MY CITY GIVES 17-18 AVERAGE….
Bye Bicycle…. good exercise…. no petrol… no toll… no pollution…. no parking charges…
please give some tips for byke riders also…………………….

a fuel and money consuming honda is a myth!!! my city needs a servicing after 10000 kms and it cost less than my santro!!! and its a fact!!
same experience here…
My Honda City 2010 is more efficient than my Hyundai I10 (1.2 kappa) 2009…
From i10 i can get max. 17 km/ltr (with WIDER TYRE set)..
Its all depends upon the Engine’s Power to Weight Ratio, Tyres, Gear ratio, Aerodynamics, Suspensions etc. etc.
@Abhi Jeet,@Amruth Ganesh,@Ajay Srinivas Raghavan…
Did YOU ever have a chance to drive HONDA CITY i-vetec (NEW model)??
Dont confuse between Honda CITY and Honda CIVIC…
ARAI approved CITY for 16.6 Km/ltr
and CIVIC for 11.2 KM/Ltr.
And for your KIND INFORMATION, i will soon upload the Photo of my HONDA City’s Digital meter showing more…[Read more]

Best useful Tips.
I too get 17.5 kmpl sometimes from my honda city iv tec.
drivin at de speed of 40-50 wil give u gr8 milage…
Alto k10 owners are still, least worried..!!!
Hey… for bike owners… use better engine oils… timely change the oils and use high performance oils… they improve performance and better accelaration…. Maitain an optimum speed always while riding, for eg: for FZ or Fazer, you get 40+ only if u control and ride at speeds of 45 and 50…. 60 and above dips the efficiency….
And better, dont use performance kits and filters… they can drink the petrol sometimes that when you sometimes hit above 90 or above, the efficiency might be way below 20 sometimes…
24.6 kmpl on verna crdi 1.6- highway
29.3 kmpl on highway for my new Dzire VDi & 25.7 kmpl in city driving… following all the tips for fuel efficiency. Never drive above 80kmph.
Could u give me an idea about fuel injector cleaners. How to use them and their price?. Thanks in advance.
Its 71 in Chennai.
Time to park the car in the garage & cycle to work.
Its Really irritating to see petrol being hiked by 3odd rupees every 3 months. By the end of 2012 it may even go upto 100 rupees where the most affected people will be the middle class who own hatch backs. As a result of this people will think twice before taking the key of their cars from the key hanger. For a car giving 12 kmpl, the average…[Read more]
Cycle option is the best option.
Atleast you people are still in the 60s!!!!!
My Alto K10 gives about 12-14 kmpl. So that it will automatically increase the cost about 3200 per year at lest for me.
It is 74.50 in Hyderabad.
74 odd in bangalore.
Petrol price hike: one more reason to seriously consider diesel cars!
I really don’t understand HOW-n-WHY is this being tolerated…. I mean
1. Look at the constant rise in prices &.
2. Why is there so much of a price diff.. I mean.. Delhi is Rs.66/ltr whereas Mumbai is Rs.71/lts & Hyderabad & bangalore is Rs.74 approx… I mean there’s a Rs.10/lts diff.
Isn’t this surprising where we say we are all one &…[Read more]
Much worse… 74 in Bangalore
I think already many petrol vehicles sell has clash and now again Rs 3.15/. increase in price of petrol from yest it is again a trouble in selling for all petrol vehicles.though now there is a huge demand for diesel vehicles but not all diesel vehicles are ready available and waiting period is there.again after few days govt will hike diesel price…[Read more]
Make the petrol Rs100 once for all. We can then dump our cars in garage and start using Metros and buses.
Diesel Punto YO!
its 74 in punjab. . . . But still. . . I luv to drive on petrol.
be ready to pay 100 bucks for 1 liter of petrol by 2012….why is there no regulator like trai to monitor selling price of fuel and other products….isn’t it hypocritical nature of govt. that they decontrol and then control indirectly and allow oil supplying cartel to decide selling price of fuel…bhaiya election karwa do nayi sarkar lek aao aur…[Read more]

tonga ,ghoragari, cycle,rickshaw, bullackcart ka zamana fir wapis aa raha hai, ab market mein honda aur volkswagen ke khachar bhi milenge, maruti aur tata ghode bhi bechenge, service ki koi tension nahin, bus hara chara arrange karna padega…………………..
Impressive! Looks muscular, thanks to the grille. The pricing is competitive which suggests Nissan has planned to aggressively target the sedan segment. The competition will further heat up with the arrival of Diesel version.
its an ok I think notthing gr8 nissan is doing with Sunny…The ARAI-certified fuel economy of the Sunny is 16.59 kmpl….we can get 8-10in city and not more then 12kmpl on highway…mileage is worst in sunny…..another partis vehicle will be launch in petrol only right now…..i think maxx people today are prefering Diesel as 1st option….so I…[Read more]
nice job done bye nissan sunny.
It is so surprising not to have a diesel option now. When the petrol sedan segment is dominated by CITY, it will be really hard for SUNNY to catch a place. Even the looks of the car is not very great. And the sales and service backup for Nissan in India is also not at par with other car makers. Having a diesel motor would have been a plus point…[Read more]
I think in terms of Safety they have done a brilliant job of keeping ABS and EBD and BA even in the base trims and that will set a new trend hencforth with even the new Ford Fiesta doin the same. Also the middle variant is pretty well equipped with as many features as possible. Sure will give the Vento and the City a run for their money.but FASTER…[Read more]

Today, I saw one Sunny in Mumbai, it was without a registration No., any idea whether bookings have started.
They Can Be Clear Winner If They Launch The oil Burn Motor (Diesel ) in it As Today Also The Petrol Prices are Rised By 3 Rs. In Most Developing Countries Like Sri Lanka, Nepal, Vietnam and Many Other South Asian Countries Nissan is Doing Good.
They vl surely do betr if it cm in disel version.
actualy they have to improve the looks. . . .
The Engine is underpowered and looks same as the taxi so it does good with taxi operators who are conscious bout mileage.
I love Indigo….Verito is ugly….
I think verito is very good car to buy and own it because of boot space, width, dis, all four disc brakes, powerfull ac, smootth gears , 3 head restrains and 185 r 14 tyres and vry low priced , engine is very powerfull as u can own till 200000 or more kms so all the way verito gets points.especialy for avrage in diesel odel also.
verito(logan) is a worthy car.my logan clocked 125000km and I never faced any issues relating to engine and mechanicals, but the quality of plastics, mirrors are very poor.my car gives me 18km mileage per litre and it is built for purpose.if you are a person who need to travel a lot I recommend VERITO.
Easily one of the worst cars in the segment. Mahindra, it seems has not paid any attention & detailing of the Verito. The exhaust tube vibrates badly & the pipe is clearly visible for most parts.
it is amazing
I like duster and it will grab the indian suv market.
I am waiting for Duster! Hurray THE ULTIMATE SUV is here.
Eagerly waiting to grap it.
cool r waiting for duster..it is really superb suv.
is this 7 seater or 5?
this car is going to be off the hook..i hope it does well in india..and also hoping that renault would make the dashboard layout a bit more intersting this time.
good one but price will decide duster fate in india as fluence is also highly priced.
good looking suv from renault stable
the rear looks kind of like the Xtrail which used to come out in the ninties! but seems and sounds like a good one, lets keep our fingers crossed till we can lay our hand on one!
duster hmmmmmmmmmmmm m owniing 1!
diesel around 8-9 lks will make a huge dent!
if price wud be in this range, I’ll be buying it.
At 105 bhp it doesn’t sound like a lot of fun. I hope they launch it with a better engine to make it stand against the other SUV’s.
design very simillar to nissan pathfinder.
THE 1 N ONLY SUV IS PAJARO………………
Waiting for the duster …..
@[618706303:2048:Samir Patel] same same!!
price will decide the fate of this launch- I wish if duster will follow the same XUV5OO pricing theory to grab the market!
Its like a 2 in 1 , a sedan in SUV mode, RENAULT produces good vehicles.
It is a very good prospect and the review also is encouraging .
Anand this is worth buying.
Yes dr ,very true .
my future car.
waiting the launching………………………………..
This is definitely one to look out for! Awesome aggressive pricing & looks great!
Amazed by his design, then y Renault is changing it.
I like the designits awesome and the duster also rocks.
