The Mahindra XUV500 is Mahindra's first global SUV with ultra modern technological features, advanced safety, comfort and convenience amenities earlier found only in high-end SUVs. The XUV500 has been extensively tried and tested across India, South Africa, Europe and Australia. Mahindra says the XUV500, its eighth vehicle, is inspired by the most agile animal, cheetah in action. Conceived and developed painstakingly over four years, this scintillating SUV is available in three variants - Mahindra XUV 500 W4 FWD, XUV500 W6 2WD, Mahindra XUV500 W8 2WD and Mahindra XUV500 W8 4WD.
The Mahindra XUV500 derives power from a state-of-the-art 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine rated at 138bhp with 330Nm torque. The engine is mated with a 6-speed transmission with 2Wd and AWD systems. The 5th generation Variable Geometry Turbocharger takes the XUV500 from 0 to 60kmph in a mere 5.4 seconds. The XUV500 delivers a fuel economy of up to 13.5 kms per litre (ARAI-certified). The vehicle handles the city traffic well thanks to high torque at low engine revs and the Dual Mass Flywheel delivers rattle-free driving pleasure. With the advanced Micro Hybrid Technology, the owners can save both fuel and nature.
Mahindra says the XUV is inspired by the cheetah in action. The front grille resembles the cheetah jaw, the door handles are styled like its paws and body lines take a cue from a pouncing cheetah. The body is based on Mahindra's signature monocoque construction for better handling which ensures better handling, safety and security. The exterior features stylish alloy wheels with disc brakes and tubeless tyres, power-foldable and adjustable ORVMs, twin exhausts and static-bending projection headlamps, and LED parking lights.
The safety features present in Mahindra XUV 500 are central locking, ABS, engine immobilizer, airbags, remote keyless entry, collapsible steering, front and rear seatbelt, child safety door locks and crumple zone.
