Features two-tone colour scheme.
Mahindra is showcasing a special edition model of the Mahindra XUV500 featuring a dual-tone colour scheme at Automobile Barcelona that opened its doors on 11 May 2017.
Mahindra hasn't revealed specific details, but the primary colour looks like a shade of orange and brown. The pillars, roof, roof rails and ORVMs are finished in black. The special edition model features newly-designed black alloy wheels also. On the inside, Mahindra has equipped the SUV with front seat-back-integrated displays for the second-row passengers' entertainment.
The Mahindra XUV500 special edition is in the top of the range, w10 grade. It's powered by the 2.2-litre mHawk140 turbocharged diesel engine that produces 103 kW (140 hp) at 3,750 rpm and 330 Nm of torque between 1,600 rpm and 2,800 rpm. While in India this engine is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission, the engine in the special edition model seen in the images from Spain utilises a 6-speed manual transmission to channel power to the wheels.
Mahindra hasn't announced plans to bring the Mahindra XUV500 special edition to India. At home, the SUV was updated just last month with Android Auto compatibility and other new infotainment system features. Mild-hybrid tech was expected to arrive with this yearly refresh, but that could be rolled in the next update along with cosmetic enhancers.
