Mahindra XUV 500 Review


October 5, 2015: Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. (M&M) has announced that the company’s XUV500 has achieved a feat of 1,50,000 unit sales including exports. The Cheetah inspired SUV has crossed the milestone in just four years after it was launched in September 2011. The automobile has, since launch, added new lustre to the specifications by giving an elated performance and adopting world-class safety features. The achievement comes at the backdrop of recent 5 lakh cumulative sales achieved by Mahindra Scorpio.


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, it 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, the output is transmitted to all four wheels. This latest SUV gets a brand new to its lineup christened as W10, which is placed above the existing top end W8. It is made available to choose between FWD and AWD drive formats. Now, the tally of variants has gone up to six. This top end is equipped with an array of equipments including a touchscreen infotainment system with a DVD player and a high quality surround sound. It gets new facets like a voice messaging, door opening notification and seat belt alert. Coming to the interior updates, this latest line gets an improved beige color scheme that renders it an upmarket appeal. However, the layout remains identical to its predecessor. In terms of exteriors, this gets a completely refurbished front facade with new radiator grille, headlights and bumper. Its headlight cluster has an 'S' shaped LED DRLs 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 patterned fog lamp console along with chrome enclosures. This latest series is now available in two new exterior paint options like Pearl White and Sunset Orange to choose from. 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 other have been retained from its previous line. The manufacturer has retained its monocoque body construction, which determines the safety of passengers and contributes for undiluted driving pleasure. It has good safety comprising 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 composed by Bosch, which enhances the braking mechanism. This 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.



The 2015 range 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 that has a high gloss black vertical slats. They are decorated with chrome accents with the company's insignia in the center. The headlight cluster has been refurbished, as it is now adorned with 'S' shaped LED daytime running lights. The front bumper gets a new pattern with a slightly bigger air dam and modified fog lamp consoles. They are garnished with chrome that flanks a classy appeal to this facade. The bonnet on top gets some masculine tweaks that adds to its aggressive stance. Its side facet looks to be the same but, the waistline molding gets chrome treatment. 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 aspects are given to the high end alone. The rear 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 and brand's logo that adds to its exclusivity.

Exterior Measurements:

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



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 scheme, 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 application. The seats in the W4 and W6 have been covered with fabric upholstery, while the W8 and W10 gets them with leather upholstery. Apart from the base, the remaining trims have been bestowed with an 'Icy Blue' lounge lighting that accentuates the interiors. All the trims have got chrome plated scuff plates, while the top end gets them with illuminated function. The high end W10 variant is blessed with electric sun roof with anti-pinch that adds to the plushness of the cabin. This also gets an engine start button on the dashboard that improves 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 line is now has a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat, which will certainly make it even competitive in the segment.

Interior Comfort:

The newly added trim includes the voice messaging, 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 with anti-pinch function. Apart from this, there are 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. A rear view camera 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, others are bestowed with fully automatic temperature control unit. Then, there is a glove box compartment that enables storing a number of things and a laptop holder too. Besides these, it has remote tailgate opening, while the rear windscreen sports a 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. 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 more increase the level of comfort.

Interior Measurements:

The huge interior space is one of the main advantages 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 sufficient owing to its decent height. It is designed with a large boot compartment, whose space can be 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 in it.


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


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 has two wheel and four wheel drive options. The same 2.2-litre, mHawk diesel engine powers this robust SUV, which sports a fifth generation variable turbocharger and based on micro hybrid technology. Its total displacement capacity is upto 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. It is mated with a six speed manual transmission gear box that enables easier gear shifts. Depending on the drive type of its trims, this motor transmits power to its front or all four wheels.



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 powerhouse or its technicalities but, its fuel efficiency has been improved. This is a result of incorporating the advanced brake energy regeneration system. This enables the 2.2-litre mHawk common rail direct 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 mill comprises of 4 cylinders with 16 valves, which produces a displacement capacity of 2179cc. It is integrated with a fifth generation variable geometry turbocharger that improves its output. It can churn out a maximum power of 140bhp and a peak torque output of 330Nm.


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.


Both these new and W8 trims are bestowed with an advanced audio unit that comes with a 7-inch display screen that has GPS navigation, iPod connectivity and picture viewer. It has a screen for its reverse camera that includes zoom function as well. Moreover, voice recognition, SMS read out and Mahindra BLUE SENSE App are also offered in these. Whereas, its W6 trim is with a 6-inch monochrome infotainment display with USB, Bluetooth audio, and handsfree calling. Its DIS in-built music unit 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 installed that delivers exceptional sound output and outstanding listening experience to its passengers. Some accessories list that one can choose based on their requirement comprise of features like floor mats, roof rails, side stepper, body graphics and more.

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


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 SUV 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 has crumple zones as well as impact beams that safeguards one from injuries in case of an impact. It has a reliable disc braking mechanism, which consist of an anti lock braking system with electronic brake force distribution. Its top end electronic stability program including rollover mitigation. A key aspect is the immobilizer, which functions effectively by avoiding any unauthorized access into it. Dual front airbags, which keeps its front occupants secure to a great extent. Side as well as curtain airbags are also offered, which is a plus point. Besides these, the hill hold with descent control unit is a significant aspect, which holds, controls and guarantees steadiness while driving on hills. The newly added voice messaging is definitely an advantage as, it gives a notification when the door is open, and even when one is not wearing a seat belt. There is a centrally located fuel tank, smart rain sensing wipers, central locking, high mount stop lamp, reverse parking camera with dynamic assist, door ajar lamps and a few more.



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


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

2. Acceleration and pickup is good.

3. Good length and wheelbase dimensions.

4. Outstanding external layout with many notable facets.

5. Voice messaging aspect is a big plus point.



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 added safety.

5. Petrol mill can be made available.

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]
