Which car is better between XUV500 and Toyota Fortuner? I like the Paddle Shifts of the Toyota as well the reliability but the equipment list of XUV500 is more. Also, is the interior quality of Toyota; especially the touchscreen, not at par with the XUV500?

Talking about the Toyota Fortuner, the looks of the car is quite impressive whereas the Toyota reliability definitely is an added plus point. The seating is decently comfortable but XUV500 is a better option. Apart from this, the price of the car is a little on the higher end whereas, if we talk about the XUV500, then the price factor definitely is in its favour. However, in terms of drive, both cars are pretty good. The infotainment system is at par for both the cars but the interior quality and finishing is better in the Toyota. However, XUV500 is not far behind in terms of quality of the cabin either.
In my opinion, both the cars are decently good but, if you are a tall person then XUV500 will be more comfortable for you as in the Fortuner, seats are somewhat lower therefore your knees are quite up when you’re sitting. Toyota is definitely a better brand but Mahindra has caught up. So it’s basically a choice depending on how much money you’re willing to spend and what feature do you really want in your car. Apart from this, it is more of just a brand war!
