      Thanks bhvm. Honestly, I am not sure XUV can do 200. Thats bordering on impossible lines for me.

      Max I have done is like 165kmph, nearing 170kmph may be. At that speed, the engine noise is high and it slightly makes me nervous.

And had driven Hexa on even worse road at speed of 40-50, and it glides over them at those speeds as was asked by SA to drive as he wanted to show how good the suspension is.

      XUV has its own merits. It truly is one a sport car in shape of a SUV, and engine response is excellent.



      Try a Hexa, and it would trump Safari Dicor in ride comfort on broken roads, without the body roll of Dicor. Hexa is the new benchmark in magical ride quality.

      Nonetheless, XUV shines for its own merits, but definitely not the ride quality.

      Edit: We are going OT here. Sorry. Its a XUV ownership thread. I will stop here.
      Don't get me wrong. But test drive runs or driving friends car for sometime, is not possible to come to an conclusion.

      I can vouch for it Been there done that. On Speedo it takes a while to climb above 180 but it certainly does. Proof That's my XUV driven by me and photo clicked by fellow gearhead sundar

      On TBHP too, someone had claimed to take Storme to 200 kmph (where he heard a clank sound), and BD had confirmed that Storme can be taken till 200. But i don't feel confident of taking Storme to even 140. Because it is high GC and a heavy vehicle, the engine become loud and not so relaxed, and the most important that it is not safe to drive at such speeds on our highways. About 100 is the speed where i feel better control over car. XUV being ligher and having lower CG should be able to cruise at higher speeds, but 200 is too high and dangerous.

      True that we cannot know a car fully in test drives or short drives, but still we atleast get good amount of feel of the car. We cannot own each and every car after all. Had test drives Aria (the donor car for Hexa) 4 times and Hexa once.
