AT range on XUV500 now extends to four variants.

The Mahindra XUV500 W6 AT has been launched at INR 14.29 lakhs, ex-Showroom, Mumbai. As the name suggests, the XUV500 W6 AT is the entry-level variant with the automatic transmission which aims to steal some market share from compact SUVs like the Hyundai Creta and the Renault Duster.

The XUV500 W6 AT offers a 2.2-liter mHawk diesel engine developing 140 bhp and 330 Nm of torque, paired to an Aisin-made 6-speed torque converter. The fuel efficiency is expected to be 13.85 km/l.
