The Mahindra XUV500 W4 variant was launched yesterday and is priced at INR 10.95 lakhs (ex-Showroom, New Delhi). As regular readers may remember, Indian Autos Blog scooped the features list of this cut-price, entry-level model over a month ago.
Price wise, the W4 variant is over a lakh cheaper than the W6 variant (which is priced at INR 12.01 lakhs in New Delhi) and for good reason. The W4 loses out on features such as infotainment display, DVD player, driver information system, tyre pressure monitoring system, automatic wipers and headlights, front foglights, climate control system, 8-way adjustable driver’s seat (the W4 gets a 6-way adjustable seat instead), cruise control and steering mounted controls.
However, the W4 retains the same mechanical package of the 2.2-liter mHawk engine which produces 140 bhp and 330 Nm of torque. Safety features such as ABS and dual front airbags are also present on this base model.
Dr Pawan Goenka, Executive Director & President, Automotive & Farm Equipment Sectors, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said –
The XUV500 has resonated very well with our customers since its launch and has since become a trendsetter within the Indian automotive industry. With over 74,000 vehicles on the road within two years of launch, the XUV500 is one of our most successful launches.
