The Ecosense technology helps in driving more efficiently by optimising fuel consumption and curtailing CO2 emissions. It's essentially like an electronic score sheet that gives you an 'Ecoscore' out of 100, based on driving parameters like - speed, gear selection, acceleration, idling, clutch override and aggressive breaking. This score is regularly displayed on the infotainment system which allows the driver to keep a check on his/her driving habits and what should be done to achieve more efficiency. A lot like green modes on some other cars - only more detailed. Drivers can also keep a track of previous scores on the system itself or via Mahindra's Bluesense mobile app. Also for those who like to share everything on social media, the app also allows the driver to share their Ecoscore on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp.

The Emergency Call or E-Call on the XUV500 provides access to emergency services in an unfortunate event. This is essentially triggered when an airbag is deployed and automatically calls emergency services and also sends a text alert to 2 pre-set numbers through a paired mobile phone.

Android Auto as you may know, lets you connect your android devices to the car's infotainment system for easy access to calls, messaging, navigation, music and Google search. The technology comes with a simple and intuitive interface, integrated steering controls and powerful voice actions that minimise distraction and enable the driver to stay focused on the road.
