A family car versus an SUV. We compare the practical Toyota Innova with the new-kid-on-the-block Mahindra XUV 500.
Q I’m planning to buy a big vehicle for my family and I cannot decide between the Toyota Innova and the Mahindra XUV 500. Which one would you suggest?

AAA Both the vehicles you are considering are excellent in their own right, but are very different from each other. If you are looking for a practical, trouble-free and user-friendly family vehicle, the Toyota Innova is the best option. It is easy to drive and very comfortable too. The Mahindra XUV 500 may seem more appealing at first glance, thanks to its striking looks, long equipment list and strong performance. However, it is not technically as well sorted as the Innova. So if you want to pamper yourself, go for the XUV 500 but if you would rather have complete peace of mind, the Innova is a better choice.
