When it comes to the competition among two giant vehicles, it is always very exciting. In case of the Mahindra XUV500 and the Skoda Yeti, the war is about whether to go for the technological brilliance or the strong build. Both the huge SUVs shine in their own respective manner making it hard for us to choose one among them. However, undoubtedly, when it comes to off-roading, the Mahindra giant takes the cake in the most upmarket fashion and on the other hand Skoda is proud holder of some amazing features.
Now let us compare both of them on some key grounds in order to make it easy for you to decide which one to pick among these two, when looking to own a vehicle belonging to the particular segment.
Talking about the looks, we must go with Skoda Yeti which looks sleeker than its rival Mahindra XUV500. However, that doesn’t signify that Mahindra’s vehicle is an ugly looking beast. Laced with 17 inch alloys and a new raised bonnet in a fresh modification, the vehicle does look better than its predecessor but how can we compare the beauty of Yeti’s contrasting roof and a very elegant curvy design. When it comes to the size, Yeti will sure get lost in the cruel competition due to a small size.
The Mahindra XUV500 is loaded on the inside with so many features that if you are new to all this, you may get lost and it will take you months in order to fully get to know your vehicle. While, the sleekness, good features and the overall interior design of the Yeti certainly outshines the more rugged Mahindra XUV500, the Mahindra SUV is a massive stunner with strong built. Though on the looks part, it’s a matter of personal choice, but as an off-roader, we pick the Mahindra XUV500 over the Skoda Yeti as a better vehicle.
Mahindra’s bad boy gets powered by a 2179 diesel engine which is massive, while its Czech rival comes equipped with a 2.0 litre diesel mill.
When the price factor is concerned, the Skoda Yeti and Mahindra XUV500 are tagged at a starting Rs. 20.11 lakhs and Rs. 11.29 lakh, respectively, making the choice clear.
