Mahindra Xuv 500 also said as Evolved SUV. From long, Mahindra is sitting at top position in terms of SUV and best diesel engines in India. In 2008, they launched their first SUV, Mahindra Scorpio which was loved by people all over India due to its adapting nature. It was usable on a smooth highway and harsh roads as well. In 2012, Mahindra launched a new SUV said to be XUV 500 which was placed in 15-20 lakh vehicles. Recently, they launched Mahindra XUV 500 2.0 which came with some cosmetic upgrades.
Mahindra XUV 500 comes with latest technology including ESP and Traction control as well. Apart from that you get a brilliant black themed interior (whereas it was close skin color before which was prone to dirt). You get blue color lights which gives you lounge feel. Looking at engine specification then I think none of the SUV in this range can beat it.
You get a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel which outputs 140bhp power and 330Nm of torque which is more than enough for Indian roads. You can easily cruise at the top speed of 200 Kmph all day long without any engine issues.
You get option of 2WD or AWD. 2015 Mahindra XUV 500 is ranged from Rs. 11 lakh to Rs 16 lakh, but price of Rs. 16 lakh variant can reach upto Rs. 18 lakh due to taxes.
If you reside in Delhi then you can buy XUV 500 till March due to restrictions over diesel vehicles.
As per rumors XUV 500 is going to get Automatic transmission model in January, 2016.
