A new W9 trim of the Mahindra XUV500 has been introduced this week. The Mahindra XUV500 W9 is priced at INR 15.45 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) and INR 16.53 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) for the manual and automatic variants respectively.
Key features of the Mahindra XUV500 W9 trim include electric sunroof with anti-pinch, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, reverse camera with a dynamic assist, Ecosense technology, Android Auto, static bending headlamps, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP with rollover mitigation, push-button start, passive keyless entry and Tyretronics.
Compared to the top-end W10 trim, the W9 misses out on Connected Apps, side and curtain airbags, aluminium pedals, optional black interior leather upholstery, electrically adjustable driver's seat, bonnet with hydraulic assist, and puddle lamps.
The Mahindra XUV500 is powered by a 2.2 L mHawk diesel engine producing 140 bhp and 330 Nm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. Mahindra is not offering the XUV500 W9 in an all-wheel-drive format. Power and torque outputs will go up with the launch of the facelift.
Commenting on the launch of the XUV500 W9 variant, Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales & Marketing
- Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, said:
Since its launch in 2011, the XUV500 has been a pioneer in providing innovative hi-tech features that are not available even in vehicles that are almost double its price. We are certain that the introduction of these hi-end features at such a competitive price point will generate a lot of interest amongst prospects who are evaluating SUVs in the price range of 14 lacs to 18 lacs. By introducing these aspirational features at this price, XUV500 has raised the bar once again.
