Siddharth Patankar From NDTV did test drive for Mahindra TUV3OO, & he is happy with the product.
He wrote- "Yes I've driven it. And yes I can say it with a large heaped tablespoon of confidence - it's the best Mahindra yet. And given what it is meant to be; it's a pretty darn good car too. Here's why - it drives very well, with excellent control and good ride comfort, and has the best-ever interiors of any Mahindra car to date with good plastics, appealing trim and great features. It is built on the shortened version of Mahindra's new ladder-on-frame platform, which we first saw with the new Scorpio. At the time I remember telling you the platform can easily go sub-4-metre too, and so here's the first product using the shorter platform."
The TUV is boxy looking - and that harks back to its Bolero heritage (explained later in this piece) and will polarise most of you to either liking or hating it. I find it distinct - especially in the space it occupies where most designs flaunt curves (EcoSport, Avventura, Creta, S-Cross). The front bumper though, does look a bit heavy.
Inside you get the connectivity and gadgets you'd expect these days, and the cabin is reasonably airy with great headroom and pretty generous legroom given the car sits below 4 metres in length. Air conditioning is powerful and the cabin cools quickly. The cabin is finished in a warm beige and the dash layout and pattern is very good looking. I like the new steering and its feel and size. Yes this is all way better than the new Scorpio's and even the recently facelifted XUV's interior. So now you know what I mean?"
