Mahindra XUV 500 Review


Mahindra XUV 500 is the flagship luxury SUV developed by India's leading utility vehicle manufacturer. Introduced first in the year 2011, it has done extremely well for the company and attracted a long waiting period at times. Recently, it has undergone a minor overhaul with regards to the styling of both insides and out. Also, a new trim named W10 has also been added to the lineup that sits above the W8. Technically, it remained to be the same like its outgoing model featuring a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel motor under the hood. Initially, it is being introduced only with a six speed manual gearbox supporting FWD and AWD drive mechanisms. Now, its model series is complete with the introduction of the automatic versions. This is a six-speed automatic gearbox, which is sourced from a Japanese firm 'Aisin'. This option is available for the mid level W8 FWD and the range topper W10 FWD and W10 AWD trims. Apart from the addition of auto gearbox, no modification has been made to the vehicle. With this, the tally of variants has gone up to nine.

Coming to the insides, it recently got updates in the form of an improved beige color scheme. However, there is no modification done to the layout and its entire design remains identical to its predecessor. As for its exteriors, this SUV 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 and much more dynamic. The front bumper also gets newly patterned fog lamp console along with chrome enclosures.

The high end version is packed with an array of equipments including a touchscreen infotainment system with a DVD player and a high quality surround sound. It gets new features like a voice messaging, door opening notification and seat belt alert. Besides all of these, the series also gets a stylish set of alloy wheels that renders a mighty look to its side facet. Also, for the first time in this segment, this SUV 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 features including 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 developed by Bosch. This is now available with a standard warranty of up to three years or 100000 kilometers (whichever is earlier).

Mahindra XUV 500 Exterior


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.

Mahindra XUV 500 Interior


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. 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.

Mahindra XUV 500 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 motor's transmission duties are handled by a six speed manual gearbox that allows to reach a top speed of approximately 190 Kmph. Now, variants with six speed automatic gearbox have also been added to the line-up, whose top-speed also clocks the same. Its 2WD trims takes about 11 seconds to break the 100 Kmph speed barrier, while the AWD versions can do it in just 10 seconds.

Mahindra XUV 500 Engine

Engine and Performance

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

Like mentioned above, the company has made no changes to this 2015 version with regards to the technical specifications. The only update it gets is the brake energy regeneration technology that spurred up its fuel efficiency. The power plant is the same 2.2-litre, mHawk oil-burner that is integrated with a fifth generation variable turbocharger and based on micro hybrid technology. It has a total displacement capacity of 2179cc. This is a four cylinder mill integrated with 16 valves altogether based on a double overhead camshaft valve configuration. It is capable of churning out 140bhp at 3750rpm that results in a pounding torque of 330Nm between 1600 to 2800rpm. It is mated with a six speed manual transmission gear box that supports front wheel and all-wheel drive mechanism. Also, the company is now offering a new six speed automatic gearbox, which is available for three trims W8 FWD, W10 FWD and W10 AWD.

Mahindra XUV 500 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.

The 2015 version of XUV500 received no modifications to its powerhouse or to its technicalities. However, its fuel efficiency has gone up, thanks to the incorporation of advanced brake energy regeneration system. This enables the 2.2-litre mHawk power plant to produce a maximum mileage of about 16 Kmpl (for manual version) and 13.85 Kmpl (for automatic trim).

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 altogether producing a total 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.

Mahindra XUV 500 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.

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.

Mahindra XUV 500 Safety and Security

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.

Mahindra XUV 500 Wheels


Except the base and W6, other two are equipped with a stylish set of 17 inch alloy wheels. These rims are wrapped-up with P235/65 R17 sized radial tubeless tyres. The base trim gets 17 inch steel wheels, which are also covered with tyres of same size.


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.
