Mahindra and Mahindra’s XUV500 was in the first place, followed by Tata Nano as second most reputed car brand, but the former received a 74% lead over the second spot winner.

The Mahindra XUV 500 was launched in September last year, starting from the price of Rs.10.80 lakhs, as the first major utility vehicle launched from Mahindra after Xylo, being positioned between the Scorpio and other premium SUVs such as Toyota Fortuner, Chevrolet Captiva and Mitsubishi Outlander.

XUV500 is powered by a 2.2 liter M-Hawk engine, which offers 140 bhp and 330 Nm of torque. The 2179cc mHawk engine helps this SUV challenge any terrain globally.
