One cannot deny the fact that the automotive industry is getting more and more competitive today. To get an upper hand over its competitors, carmakers are introducing new segment first features in their products right from the base variant itself. Indian SUV market leader, Mahindra is known for using this strategy ever quite often, especially in recent times. We saw the introduction of ABS and airbags in base variants of TUV300, standardisation of ABS with EBD across all variants in KUV100 and now an infotainment system in the base variants of the XUV500.

If you ask us, with this new strategy, Mahindra is simply making a statement that customers who choose Mahindra products get some or the other value addition, irrespective of the variants they choose. The previous model of the W4 and W6 variants of the XUV500 used to come with a single LCD unit, whereas now the new 6-inch monochrome infotainment system that comes with features like USB, Bluetooth audio, hands-free calling & iPod connectivity + CD, which were earlier offered with the W6 variant alone.
Apart from these, rest all features offered with the XUV500 remain unchanged like the projector headlamps with light guides, micro hybrid technology, airbags and ABS with EBD. In fact, even the higher W8 and W10 variants continue to offer the same 7-inch colour touchscreen infotainment display with GPS, USB (audio / video), Bluetooth audio, hands-free calling, iPod connectivity, a picture viewer and configurable wallpaper.
Under the hood the Mahindra XUV500 gets a 2.2-litre mHawk 140 diesel engine that churns out a maximum of 140bhp and develops a peak torque of 330 Nm. The W4 and W6 variants come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The XUV500 W4 variant is currently offered at a price of Rs. 11.50 lakh, while the W6 variant comes at Rs. 12.70 lakh with the top-of-the-line W10 AWD AT priced at Rs. 17.23 lakh, (All prices ex-showroom, Mumbai).
