Killer price for Mahindra XUV500

Shock prices for XUV500. Base 2WD W6 starts from 10.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Mahindra has just revealed the shock prices of its exciting global SUV, the XUV500, with the base 2WD (W6) version priced at a stunning Rs 10.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), rising up to Rs 12.88 lakh for the top-end 4WD (W8) version.

Powering the XUV is the 2.2-litre mHawk engine, similar to the one in the Scorpio. However, it now makes more power and torque – 140bhp and 33.33kgm – and the engine is placed transversely. The XUV has been launched in front-wheel-drive as well as all-wheel-drive versions and there is a new cable-operated six-speed manual gearbox (developed with the help of Riccardo) capable of handling more torque than the Scorpio’s gearbox.

Available in three trim versions, the XUV500 2WD W6 is priced at Rs 10.8 lakh, 2WD W8 costs Rs 11.95 lakh, while the top-of-the-line 4WD W8 variant retails at Rs 12.88 lakh (all prices ex-showroom Delhi). These are the introductory prices and are likely to be upped in the coming months. Mahindra is also working on an automatic version of the XUV.

The XUV500 has a tough build, plenty of space on the inside and is well equipped too. The feature list includes LED reading lights, ESP, tyre-pressure monitoring, six airbags, traction control, ESP, hill-descent control, voice commands, cruise and audio controls on steering wheel, 6-inch touch screen Infotainment System with Sat-Nav, USB and iPod connectivity.  

Mahindra will also tap the export markets immediately, with the XUV500 launching in South Africa on September 30. This will be followed by launches in Australia, South America, Western Europe and SAARC.

Phase 1 will see the XUV500 being available only in Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Chennai and Bangalore. Stay tuned for more…
