Ok these are my views and opinions -
Looks are a matter of opinion but according to me-
XUV- its a very shouty and look at me kind of car. IMO
it looks good,has road presence and that upmarket feel. But the rear needs a rethink. Looks like charlie Chaplins mustache. No hard feelings to XUV owners.
Strome- its got more elegant approach,does not look over done and quite classy. but the rear like the XUV needs a rethink but only because of the tail lights.
Strome takes my vote here.
XUV- its got very nicely designed dash board,has loads of features to play with. But quality is a turnoff.
Strome- Strome too has nicely designed interior. Quality is better than the XUV but that ICE head unit looks quite bad and I dont like the steering wheels design.
XUV is the winner here for me.
Ride,handling and stability-
XUV- its got a hard and bouncy ride. Handling is safe enough and stability is rock solid.
Strome- Exceptional ride and safe handling too. Stability,I am not sure but I think XUV was better.
My choice is the strome here.
XUV- is a quick car. Its got good pickup, exceptional top end punch and really pulls well.
Strome- its also good,better than the last one. But does run out of breathe at higher RPMS.
Here the XUV clearly takes the win.
XUV- its spacious but I really hit my head a lot especially in the second row. Last row is for newborn.
Strome- its more spacious and I dont hit my head here.
So strome here for me.
Brakes and lane changing at speeds-
XUV- its got completely dead brakes. Very uninspiring. They really need to work here.Lane changing is also a drawback with that roll.
Strome - i dont have much experience with the brakes but they are better. I idid not find the strome to happy to change lanes at speed but better than XUV.
Well if tata has got the reliability right,strome for me. Although the XUV is also good but I really want to offroad if I buy and SUV.
The Cars I drove-
XUV W8 4X2
Strome VX 4X2.
