Speaking about overall ride quality, the Tata Xenon performs in a true pick-up truck manner. Precisely speaking, the ride gets better as the cargo inside increases. Steering however has improved a lot and one should have no problem in shifting this car in the desired direction he/she intends to travel; but it has a somewhat indistinct feel. The ventilated discs at the front and the drums at the back come up with decent braking performance. Yet, it should be remembered that this car weighs almost two tonnes. Leaving aside the quirks and flaws of this ride, it's a reliable option.
