      All is good.
      No new niggles identified.
      Did 1000 Km + 1000Km Run last week.
      The entire run takes about 15 hours on Both sides. Enjoyed the cruising power of XUV at triple digits. The beast really pulls well and all those 140 horses can be felt.

      It seems battery charging has worked its magic and there were no starting issues all throught the trip.
      Beast once again in Hibernation mode for now.

      Oh, you bet. I doubt I can ever get tired with XUV on road.

      Try a 100+ km on a broken tarmac you'll surely feel tired

      That would be true for any set of wheels not any particular model.

      I bet you will not feel the same on a soft suspension car in the likes of Sunny/Scala, Duster/Terrano, Hexa, Tiago, etc. They swallow deep craters with ease which is not the same case in XUV. Trust me I've both (XUV & Tiago) & comfort on a soft suspension is miles ahead ! I know both have different manners and capabilities, but end of day comfort wins hands down over performance.

      Try a Hexa or a Zest, and you would know the difference on bad roads as compared to XUV.

      Every car has its character and demands appropriate driving stye. Rather it changes your driving style. The minimal body roll and stupendous power, means Ride in XUV improves with speeds. it does not throw passengers around even at 140~160. Which is also a beautiful cruising speed for XUV if roads allow. One should always think of XUV as sedanish low slung sports car rather than off road SUV.

      On the other hand, If you like going slow & Steady, Hexa might be it.

      But I have my benchmark for Cushiony ride comfort over broken roads- The Safari Dicor (3.0 or 2.2).
      Awesome magic carpet ride even difficult to achieve in vehicles many segments higher.

      But if you like burning the tarmac at almost terminal velocity, Nothing stands against the XUV.

      Well said. The Hexa glides over the potholes when compared to the XUV 500.

      Not trying to undermine XUV, but when it comes to ride quality, Hexa would trump XUV at low speeds as well as high speeds. I had test driven XUV, Hexa, Storme and Zest on highly broken/non-existing roads at low speeds, and Hexa was followed by Zest, Storme and XUV in that order. 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.
