    Mahindra XUV 500 automatic is likely to get increased power

    Insiders have revealed that the Mahindra XUV500 Automatic is also likely to come with an increase in power to 170bhp, a substantial 30bhp hike from its current output. However, the manual Mahindra XUV500’s power will not be bumped up and has been capped at 140bhp because the manual transmission, in its current form, is not designed for extra power and torque.

    Mahindra is focussing on improving the overall driving experience of the upcoming XUV500 Automatic and the added power aims to do just that. This new automatic gearbox is reportedly a six-speed unit that will be first seen in a future SsangYong compact SUV and then later in the Mahindra XUV500 and will be the first instance where Mahindra and SsangYong will be sharing mechanical components. 

    With the latest Aisin auto ’box mated to a 2.2-litre 170bhp motor, the Mahindra XUV500 Automatic could have good potential in several international markets too.
