Mahindra has a made a point by maintaining the JEEP heritage look, for those like me who fell in like with what was made by GM for Vietnam and later for the 2nd WW, its beauty cannot be described in words. Its unmistakable simple lines which shout "functionality" every which way you look at it makes you feel like a REAL MAN ready to take on any difficulty that comes your way, both physically and mentally. Just look at it standing makes your heart jump. Absolutely superb, with 110 horses, it is one of the fastest jeeps you will find on indian roads. The CRDe engine is very less noisy and the torque is just fantastic. The borg warner transfer case is very great to shift on the fly. My jeep is 16 days old and has only 1600 kms on it, it gives about 13 to 14 kms/litre on long drives. Mahindra has done a fantastic job with this Jeep. It has made both; the tarmac to the office and the mud and stones to the road less travelled a pleasure to drive on. Although some safety features could be added for the price you pay, I would not complaint and live and enjoy what I have in my hands. for 6.6 lakhs on road in Goa for a jeep enthusiast is a gift. It is a "GREAT" thing in a low package.
