Highlights

May 25, 2015: Home grown auto major Mahindra & Mahindra today launched the facelifted XUV 500. The new age XUV 500, as the company calls it, comes with a plethora of changes inside-out. Its front fascia has completely been redesigned and now boasts a new set of projector headlamps with ‘S’ shaped daytime running LEDs, a new bumper with wider air dam, new alloy wheels and a plenty of chrome garnishing on the grille, fog lamps and wherever possible. While the major additions on the inside includes the push start button, electric sunroof, 7-inch infotainment system, 6-way power seats, logo puddle lamps, reverse camera with assist and passive key less entry. Under the hood is the same 2.2-liter four-cylinder mHawk diesel engine that puts out 140 bhp @ 3,750 rpm and 330 Nm @ 1,600-2,800 rpm. As standard, it gets a 6-speed manual gearbox with 2WD and 4WD options like before.

Overview

India's largest utility vehicle manufacturer, Mahindra and Mahindra has launched the updated version of its luxury SUV, XUV500 in the country. First introduced in the year 2011, this SUV has done extremely well for the company in terms of sales. After such a long gap, it has received some cosmetic updates both externally and internally. Technically, it remained to be the same like its outgoing model featuring a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel motor under the hood. It is mated to a six speed manual gearbox that transmits the torque output to the front wheels. However, in top end version, the output is transmitted to all four wheels. On the other hand, this latest SUV gets a brand new variant to its lineup christened as W10, which is placed above the existing top end variant W8. It is also made available with an option to choose between FWD and AWD drive formats. Now, the overall tally of variants has gone up to six. This top end trim is equipped with an array of equipments including a touchscreen infotainment system along with a DVD player and a high quality surround sound system. It also gets new features like a voice messaging system, door opening notification and seat belt alert. Coming to the interior updates, this latest version gets an improved beige color scheme that renders it an upmarket appeal. However, the design remains identical to its predecessor. In terms of exteriors, this vehicle gets a completely refurbished front facade with new radiator grille, headlights and bumper. Its headlight cluster is now fitted with an 'S' shaped LED DRLs along with projector headlamps.

Unlike its previous model, its grille looks classier, thanks to the glossy black material and chrome accents used for it. The front bumper also gets newly designed fog lamp console along with chrome enclosures. Additionally, this latest version is now available in two new exterior pain options like Pearl White and Sunset Orange that provides more options to the buyers. Coming to the side and rear facets, only its alloy wheels gets a new design and are embedded with company's emblem. For the first time in this segment, this vehicle gets logo projection lamps on its ORVMs that emphasizes its exclusivity. Apart from the aforementioned features, all the other features have been retained from its previous version. The manufacturer has retained its monocoque body construction, which determines the safety of passengers and contributes for undiluted driving pleasure. It has all important safety features like six airbags, ABS with EBD and rollover mitigation function, which are essential for safeguarding the occupants. Additionally, it is blessed with an electronic stability program 9 designed by Bosch, which enhances the braking mechanism. This vehicle is now available with a standard warranty of up to three years or 100000 kilometers (whichever is earlier). It will now take on the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Tata Safari Storme and Renault Duster in the premium SUV segment.

Exterior

Exteriors

The 2015 version of Mahindra XUV500 gets a refreshed front facade, while the side and rear facets remain unchanged. We can see major updates have been given to the radiator grille with a perforated mesh along with high gloss black vertical slats. Furthermore, they are decorated with chrome accents along with the company's insignia in the center. The headlight cluster has also been refurbished, as it is now equipped with 'S' shaped LED daytime running lights. The front bumper also gets a new design with a slightly bigger air dam and modified fog lamp consoles. Furthermore, they are garnished with chrome accents that provides a classy appeal to this facade. The bonnet on top gets some tweaks with masculine design that adds to its aggressive stance. The design of its side facet looks to be the same but, the waistline molding gets chrome treatment. At the same time, its fenders are now fitted with new set of alloy wheels and the ORVM caps are incorporated with logo projection lamps. However, many of these premium features are given to the high end variants only. Coming to the rear, this vehicle has a sturdy body structure with black colored pillars, masculine bumper and a large tailgate. Its back door is now decorated with a chrome appliqué along with brand's logo that adds to its exclusivity.

Exterior Measurements:

Like its predecessor, this latest 2015 version also comes with the same exterior dimensions. It has a total length of 4585mm along with a width of 1890mm (excluding the ORVM caps). Its height stands at 1785mm and the wheelbase measures at 2700mm, which is long.

Interior

Interiors

Editor's take : The XUV500 has good pick and it is indeed quick for its size, thanks to the monocoque body construction. Even the lighter body increasing the fuel efficiency of the XUV500 and the power.


There is no update given to the interior design, but the improvement in color scheme renders it an up-market appeal. Its dashboard is now decorated in a dual tone black and beige color scheme, which is highlighted by extensive chrome accents. The seats in the W4 and W6 variants have been covered with fabric upholstery, while the W8 and W10 variants gets them with leather upholstery. Apart from the base trim, the remaining variants have been bestowed with an 'Icy Blue' lounge lighting that accentuates the interiors. All the trims have also got chrome plated scuff plates, while the top end version gets them with illuminated function. The high end W10 variant is also blessed with electric sun roof with anti-pinch that adds to the plushness of the cabin. At the same time, this trim also gets an engine start button on the dashboard that further enhances the convenience. The space inside the cabin is as good as the earlier version and it can take in at least seven passengers. Its base version is now equipped with a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat, which will certainly make it even competitive in the segment.

Interior Comfort:

This home grown automobile manufacturer is known for incorporating interesting features in all its models, and this includes comfort aspects too. Even this model series is packed with several such features that ensure high level of convenience to its occupants. The newly added variant includes the voice messaging system, which by using voice prompts, alerts the driver if the handbrake is engaged or when the door is open. The main highlight in this trim is the electric sunroof that comes with anti-pinch function. Apart from this, it includes mobile charging points in all its three rows, which makes it quite easy for every passenger to charge their mobile phones. All its windows are power operated, while there is driver's side express down function available in the top end variants. It comes with a rear view camera, which assists the driver to park it safely. It has an eight way manually adjustable driver's seat, while there are reading lamps in the first and second rows. Except the W4 trim, all others are bestowed with fully automatic temperature control unit. Then, there is a glove box compartment that enables storing a number of things and it additionally includes a laptop holder too. Besides these, it has remote tailgate opening, while the rear windscreen features demister and a wiper with washer function. The air vents on dashboard functions by spreading cool air in the entire cabin, whereas the cruise control assists in maintaining a steady speed as set by the driver. Furthermore, aspects such as illuminated key rings, umbrella holder, follow-me-home headlamps, push button start and stop, passive keyless entry, smart rain sensing wipers, tinted solar reflecting glass, conversation mirror, digital tripmeter and a few others enhance the level of comfort.

Interior Measurements:

The huge interior space is one of the main advantages of this vehicle, which provides great convenience to all its seven occupants. The leg room in the front and rear is quite good, while the head space is also sufficient owing to its decent overall height. It is designed with a large boot compartment, whose space can be further increased by folding its second and third row seats. Meanwhile, it is incorporated with a big fuel tank that is capable of holding around 70 litres of diesel in it.

Gear

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Editor's take : The XUV500 has good pick and it is indeed quick for its size, thanks to the monocoque body construction. Even the lighter body increasing the fuel efficiency of the XUV500 and the power.

 

The mHawk engine's transmission duties are handled by a six speed manual transmission gearbox that allows the vehicle to reach a top speed of approximately 190 Kmph. However, its 2WD version takes about 11 seconds to break the 100 Kmph speed barrier, while the AWD version can do it in just 10 seconds.

Engine

Engine and Performance

Editor's take : The performance of the XUV500 is brilliant and this is a stonker of an engine.

 

This latest version has received no changes in terms of its technical specifications. Alike its outgoing model, it is offered with two wheel and four wheel drive options. The same 2.2-litre, mHawk diesel engine powers this robust SUV, which also features fifth generation variable turbocharger and based on micro hybrid technology. Its total displacement capacity comes to 2179cc. It is a four cylinder mill integrated with 16 valves and based on a double overhead camshaft valve configuration. This motor has the ability of generating a peak power of 140bhp and delivers torque of 330Nm. Moreover, it comes mated with a six speed manual transmission gear box that enables easier gear shifts. Depending on the drive type of its variants, this motor transmits engine power to its front or all four wheels.

TachoMeter

Mileage

Editor's take : The XUV500 has decent mileage despite the powerful 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine. The Sportz too gets the same engine.

 

There are no changes made to the engine or its technicalities but, its overall fuel efficiency has been improved. This comes as a result of incorporating the advanced brake energy regeneration system. This enables the 2.2-litre mHawk common rail diesel engine to produce a maximum mileage of about 16 Kmpl.

Power of Mahindra XUV 500

Editor's take : The 2.2-litre mHawk in its 140bhp avatar is a stonker of a performer. This is the only Mahindra to get 140bhp power rating from all the mHawk used in the UV manufacturer’s stable. The Scorpio and the Xylo are five-speed and 120bhp.

 

Its engine comprises of 4 cylinders with 16 valves, which produces a displacement capacity of 2179cc. This mill is integrated with a fifth generation variable geometry turbocharger that improves its overall power output. It can churn out a maximum power of 140bhp along with a peak torque output of 330Nm.

Accessories

Stereo & Accessories

Editor's take : The accessories list on the XUV500 is massive and it gets loads of features like touch screen navigation, Bluetooth etc.

 

With this facelift, the company has not only made a few cosmetic changes, but has also introduced a new variant in this model lineup, which is named as W10. Both these new and W8 trims are bestowed with an advanced audio unit that comes with a 7-inch display screen that also has GPS navigation, iPod connectivity and picture viewer. It is also the screen for its reverse camera that includes zoom function as well. Moreover, voice recognition system, SMS read out and Mahindra BLUE SENSE App are also offered in these variants. Whereas, its W6 trim is equipped with a 6-inch monochrome infotainment display with USB, Bluetooth audio, and handsfree call options. It also includes DIS in-built music system that has a CD, MP3 as well as radio tuner. The switches meant for operating this unit are mounted on its steering wheel. Besides these, it has two tweeters on the dashboard, while four speakers are also installed that delivers exceptional sound output and outstanding listening experience to its passengers. On the other hand, the manufacturer has also offered it with some accessories that one can choose based on their requirement. This list comprise of features like floor mats, roof rails, side stepper, body graphics, and a few others as well.

You can now buy Mahindra XUV 500 accessories online. Great discounts available.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take : The handling of the XUV500 is decent, however we expected it to be a tad better.

 

What assists in making its handling quite easier is the speed sensitive power assisted steering system, which offers an exceptional response. It features tilt adjustment function and ensures good maneuverability even when driving in peak traffic. Another aspect that makes for a smooth and bump free ride of the vehicle is its independent suspension system. A McPherson strut is affixed to its front axle, whereas a multi link type of system is assembled on the rear one. It is also assisted by anti roll bars that further boosts this mechanism. In terms of braking, both its front as well as rear wheels are fitted with a robust set of disc brakes that also include calipers. This system is further accompanied by anti lock braking as well as electronic brake force distribution.

Safety

Safety & Security

Editor's take : The XUV500 comes filled with various safety features like six airbags, ABS, ESP on the range topping versions.

 

This aggressive sports utility vehicle ensures the best protection to its passengers by way of its numerous safety aspects. To begin with its body structure, it is quite rigid and includes crumple zones as well as impact beams that safeguards one from injuries in case of an impact. It comes with a reliable disc braking mechanism, which is further enhanced by anti lock braking system along with electronic brake force distribution. Moreover, its top end variants also feature electronic stability program including rollover mitigation. Another key aspect is the engine immobilizer, which functions effectively by avoiding any unauthorized access into it. The firm has also offered it with dual front airbags, which keeps its front occupants secure to a great extent. Moreover, side as well as curtain airbags are also offered, which is a plus point. Besides these, the hill hold with descent control system is another significant aspect, which holds, controls and guarantees steadiness of the vehicle while driving on hills. The newly added voice messaging system is definitely an advantage as, it gives a notification when the door is open, and even when one is not wearing a seat belt. In addition to all these, it includes centrally located fuel tank, smart rain sensing wipers, central locking system, high mount stop lamp, reverse parking camera with dynamic assist, door ajar lamps and a few others that makes the ride quite safe.

Wheels

Wheels

The wheel arches in its side profile are very well crafted and depending on the variants, these come fitted with a set of steel as well as alloy wheels. Except the base and W6 trims, the other two are equipped with a stylish set of 17 inch alloy wheels. The firm has further covered them with P235/65 R17 sized radial tubeless tyres, which are highly resistant from punctures and offers excellent grip on all kinds of surfaces. Whereas a set of 17 inch steel wheels are used for its entry level trim along with full wheel caps. On the other hand, the owners can also notice a full size spare wheel fitted in its boot compartment. This is provided along with some vital tools, which generally come to use while changing a flat tyre.

Pros

1. Its electric sunroof with anti-pinch feature is rather interesting.

2. Acceleration and pickup is good.

3. Good overall length and wheelbase dimensions.

4. Outstanding external design with many notable features.

5. Voice messaging system is a big plus point.

 

Cons

1. Engine noise and vibration can be reduced.

2. There is still scope to improve its fuel economy.

3. Rear head space needs to improve a bit.

4. There is scope for adding a few more safety features.

5. Petrol engine option can also be offered.

Mahindra XUV5OO W10 AWD Review
Mahindra XUV5OO W10 AWD Review Expert Review
Not so long ago, Mahindra and Mahindra were best known for the Bolero. Rewind back a bit more, and the Armada would flash before your eyes. Roll back further and you reach a stage where the only claim to fame Mahindra had, was remaking the iconic Jeep. Over the past decade, Mahindra has taken huge leaps in evolution. And they?ve experimented - a lot! They got into an alliance with Renault and introduced the Logan, ventured into the two wheeler space and continued dominating the commercial vehicle segment. When all of this is a part of a manufacturer?s portfolio, you tend to realize the manufacturer doesn?t really shy away from taking calculated risks. Circa 2011, the Scorpio was the star in the Mahindra portfolio. Going head - to - head with the legend that the Safari is. Queue the XUV5OO. Possibly the biggest calculated risk Mahindra and Mahindra has taken. The initial skepticism included questions like ?Did Mahindra really make THAT?? / ?More than 10 lakhs for a Mahindra?? / ?Are you serious the XUV has all that??  [read more]
