Mahindra XUV 500: Surf N' Turf

To be absolutely clear, everyone here at TopGear loves cars. Even more than cake and cat videos on YouTube. We’ll never intentionally do anything to cause harm to what we love. But like any other relationship, we sometimes need to move away from the routine and do something exciting with what we love to keep the romance alive. Yes I’m still talking about cars.

In that spirit, we took the XUV 500 along Kerala’s western coastline, across small towns, beaches and more. Considering we had taken the car through some seriously rough terrain and pushed it hard in areas normally considered too harsh for two-wheel-drive cars, this seemed like a picnic. But with a car like this in your hands, excitement is bound to follow.
