Thugh both are from the same manufacturer. There is clear competition between the two. When Mahindra XUV 500 is original production of Mahindra group. Rexton is from Ssang Yong. One can consider the collaboration between Mahindra and Renault where they departed after few years of collaboration. In actuals, XUV 500 has tremendous demand in Indian market conditions for its perfect blend of power styling and performance and more of price range. Ssang Yong will have to battle with its all might to get very good sales and customer satisfactory index. To select one, Mahindra XUV tops the selection for its overall strenght parameters.
Where Mahindra XUV 500 is hulk in SUVs, Mahindra SsangYong Rexton is fairly cool and stylish. I found Rexton much better than XUV 500 because of it's comfortable interior design and spacious cabin with better leg space. Although, it's expensive than XUV 500 but it offers great music system, fabulous suspension set-up, manageable mileage and delightful off-roading experience. Mahindra XUV 500 is a good option for those who demand performance in budget. So Mahindra XUV 500 is good option for budget friendly buyers and Rexton is for comfort seekers.
