relaibility of gadgets and consistency of drive would be a BIG q? in a tempation to make super luxuary features, manufactures like TATA and mahindra tend to subside reliability.

Reliability will improve. With their acquisition of Sanyong they will be sharing platforms & technology. However the Mahindra brand of vehicles will be the economy range and Sanyong will be the premium range. I would assume Sanyong has contributed to the XUV500. It is a radical departure from the vehicles we have seen from Mahindra so far.

looks great but reliability and handling are two major areas of concern when it comes to Tata and MAhindra both..i have heard stories of new xylos, scorpios and safaris creaking away to glory, having belts breaking in the first week, sensor failures, developing leaks in hoses etc..in short if u dont mind niggling problems then tata and mahindra can be good VFM..for the fans of Mahindra and tata, if any, i might add, that reliability is obviously improving especially with tata having expertise of J and LR..their initial vehicles estate and sierra were basically downsided trucks.. still some ppl loved them
