Mahindra XUV500 Vs Nissan Terrano
There is no denying that the Mahindra XUV500 is a good value for money car. It offers feature-rich and more spacious interior than its rival. However, it lacks details and fit and finish isn’t up to the mark. The ride is bouncy and drive isn’t engaging. The Nissan Terrano, on the other side, offers very composed ride and impressive drivability. With strong performance, comfortable interior and robust body-built, Nissan’s SUV is a better than deal than the XUV500.
