Mahindra had a strong presence at this year’s Automobile Barcelona (formerly known as the Barcelona International Motor Show) in Spain, with its entire line-up on display. The stand-out among the lot though was a limited-edition version of its XUV500.
This special edition was displayed in what appears to be the company’s Sunset Orange colour complemented with blacked out roof, roof rails, pillars and mirrors. The car even featured black alloy wheels which sported a new design.
On the inside, this limited-edition two-tone variant was outfitted with infotainment displays for the second row integrated into the driver and passenger seatbacks.
These limited-edition features were only displayed in the top-spec W10 trim level of the XUV500. This variant packs the 2.2-litre mHawk140 turbo-diesel engine under the hood that makes 140hp of peak power and 330Nm of torque. The car on display in Spain was equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission.
While Mahindra hasn’t said a word about whether this limited-edition car will come to India, we can safely assume that it will consider, given that it has rolled out a similar two-tone special edition of the KUV100 recently. Expect the dual-tone XUV500 to be priced slightly higher than the standard W10 variant, which starts at Rs 16.58 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the front-wheel-drive manual gearbox version.
