Mahindra has introduced a new trim of the XUV500, the W8 Xclusive Edition. As the name suggests, this trim is based on the W8 trim; but this is a front-wheel drive model and not all-wheel drive. The XUV500 W8 Xclusive Edition is priced starting at Rs 14.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It gets a couple of cosmetic additions and more equipment.
New features on the XUV500 W8 Xclusive Editon include an electric sunroof and electrically-adjustable driver’s seat. It also gets hydraulic assisted bonnet, internet connectivity for the infotainment system, voice messaging system, reversing camera, illuminated scruff plates and grey alloys. It also gets anti-pinch driver window with express up and down.
Mechanically unchanged, the XUV500 W8 Xclusive Edition retains the 138bhp 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, from the standard car.
Mahindra will make only 700 units of this limited Edition XUV500. It is available in two versions; the Xclusive Edition (without powered driver’s seat) is priced at Rs 14.49 lakh, and the Xclusive Editon (with six way powered driver’s seat) is priced at Rs 14.65 lakh.
